    Ernie Anderson vs Ghoulardi

    Ghouardi fans be sure to check out the amazing print by Drew Friedman available here!

    I leave you with these fabulous out takes of the great Ernie Anderson losing his shit while doing voice over work for ABC television.  Anyone growing up in the 70's heard Ernie's amazing voice constantly on television, radio and movie trailers.

    The Wigs

    Wigs Warble:  Wearing colonial style wigs and George Washington-type garments, Cleveland vocal group called The Wigs score big in their night club appearances.  Fancy dress and buckled shoes of yesteryear are no bar to their modern rhythm and blues numbers."  Jet - 1964

    All I can say is, I sure hope they did the Buckle Shoe Stomp.

    Three Sixpacks, Two Arms And A Juke Box

    Johnny Seay  -  Three Sixpacks, Two Arms And A Juke Box 

    Most of Johnny's hits, not that there were all that many of them - but he did have a smattering of chart success stretching from the late 1950s until near the end of the 60s, were released under the name of Johnny Sea.  The pronunciation didn't change, only the spelling, when he reverted to his birth name of Seay.  In any event, this 1968 outing gets my nod for the Honky-Tonk Record Of The Week, full-up with fiddles, steel guitar and heart-wrenching lyrics about blotting out pain with the help of a little binge drinking.
