The story is told at Paul Vidal's site, or more formally in the Guardian Obituary and you can check his 50s releases out at the RCS Discography but where O where did I read that he was of Irish descent? No matter. A minor thing. hardly important at all. Look at that pic. Who needs proof heh heh! What? Well read the obituary again. There. I'm glad we sorted that out. Now wrap your ears round your speakers and roll up the carpet. Hmm? All right. Roll the carpet up first then.
Now. Read my lips. I just bought the thoroughly excellent Properbox 103, in other words, "Boppin' Hillbilly to Red Hot Rockabilly" and for your inspiration I commend you to the following establishment (amazon.co.uk) unless you know someone nearer.
