Subject: RE: To: Jim Liddane - The Blisters
I would love to help but I have not a clue. |
In fact until you mentioned it, I did not realise I had the song, but when I typed Blisters into my database, it turns out that I have it on vinyl.
However, it must be a reissue, as my version is not on Liberty but on Collectables, and is/was the flip of Thurston Harris "Little Bitty Pretty One".
I'd say I probably bought Thurston Harris, and ended up with The Blisters on the flip without knowing it. I probably played the flip but cannot be sure.
Sorry about that.
I will dig up the single this evening and have a listen to it.
I presume it is the old spiritual "Mama's little children love shortnin shortin"?
Interesting that it was on Liberty in 1963. I bought a lot of Liberty from 1960 to 1965, mainly Vee, Burnette, the Crickets etc., but cannot recall coming across this.
Somewhere, I have a Liberty catalogue, but I doubt if that will be all that informative either.
Was it a Philly hit?
