"Rusty Dean" (aka Clarence White & Gary Paxton)
Wailin' Time - by "Rusty Dean"
Found: junk shop, Beverly Shores, Indiana
This budget-bin country LP is easy to pass by. What looks like an indie-country Olivia Newton John, "Rusty Dean" is actually a psuedonym for eccentric pop, country and Christian artist Gary Paxton (the man behind "Allie Oop" and "Monster Mash")-- and flashy country-rock guitar slinger Clarence White from the Byrds (among others).
White's guitar is soo great as usual -- and check out the wild song titles like "The Chokin' Kind" and great cover of M-M-Mel T-T-Tillis' "Sweet Mental Revenge"!
1) Chokin Kind
2) Sweet Mental Revenge
3) You Make Me Remember
4) Walk on Out of My Mind
5) A Million Tears Ago
6) Only Daddy That'll Walk the Line
7) Time to Bum Again
8) When A Fool Loves A Fool
9) Your Broken Heart Is Showin' Through
10) The Price of Lovin' You
