ODDS & ENDS Vol. 5

Jimmy Murphy • Electricity • 1951

Jimmy Murphy, vocal/guitar; Anita Carter, bass. Nashville, 29 January 1951


  1. I've never heard this song or Jimmy Murphy before, Kid, so thanks for posting. Am I having a twilight zone moment? Did you post another version of this song in the past?

    1. Jimmy Murphy—he's great, isn't he. He was active, I believe, in the 50s and 60s, mostly solo hillbilly sides, primarily gospel, but also songs like "Sixteen Tons Rock'n'Roll," etc. And, yes, the Kid did post this very number, way back in the early days of BB's Magic Jukebox. The proprietors felt it was time to bring this terrific song forward for everyone who missed it first time around. . . .
