Jimmy Crain !

Shortly after his seventeenth birthday (in 1958), Jimmy Crain signed a recording deal with Floyd Whited, owner of the Springfield, Ohio based Spangle label.
Jimmy's first and only release on Spangle was "Shig-A-Shag", which was recorded at Bradley Studios in Nashville.
Crain insists that he wrote the song himself, though the label credit reads "M. Whited / R. Fisher".

I was hoping that "Spooky Village" would be a take-off on "Quiet Village" with halloween sounds, to tie in with Locust St.'s Martin Denny post. Good stuff anyway!
