Kitty Wells Lonely Street

When I was in college we had some records around the fraternity house. This being in 1959 in Mississippi there were some blues records and there were some hard core old time honky tonk records. It was there I found LONELY STREET by Kitty Wells on Decca and also Luke the Drifter by Hank Williams on a nice MGM 10 inch LP. (see my Luke the Drifter post below.)
The cover of LONELY STREET shown above on the EP on Decca was the original cover art on the Decca LP as well.
Also in 1959 I first heard the Sonny Boy Williamson LP shown in the post above this one. Hank Williams as Luke The Drifter, Kitty Wells singing Lonely Street and Sonny Boy Williamson Don't Start Me Talkin'. Somebody around that frat house had some good taste in music.
