** An 18 year-old fellow pops into 706 Union Avenue...He lays down 3.98 to record two songs which are both ballads... 'My Happiness' and 'That's When Your Heartaches Begin'...Employee Marion Kesler takes note that this kid is a "good ballad singer"..."Who do you sound like?" she asks him. "I don't sound like nobody" is his response...
**The recording of 'My Happiness' didn't see the light of day for twenty years or more.. But when you listen, you can tell this kid had something going on...
**I recently had the joyful experience of hearing this played while on the Sun Studios tour and it was almost like hearing it for the first time..
**July 18, 1953... The spark was set..
*Lucky you, for sure! Sun Studios tour. I MUST do that sometime!
Try the cafeteria. The chili there was great when I went. Admittedly, that was 25 years ago.
