In 1957, some guys at the Buick plant in Flint, Michigan, got together to make a record, Love Bug Crawl. It was heard by two other Buick employees, who took the lead singer, James Bullington, down to Nashville to redo the song. The tapes were sold to Mercury and James Bullington became Jimmy Edwards, and Love Bug Crawl became a Hot 100 hit. Jimmy was whisked out on tour with Buddy Holly, the Everly Brothers, Eddie Cochran, and others. He never found that elusive second hit, but the complete story of his recording career is here. This collection includes the later Mercury singles (one backed by Narvel Felts' band) and the previously un-reissued RCA singles, plus the unissued Mercury and RCA recordings, plus that ultra-rare first version of Love Bug Crawl …a record so rare that most collectors have never even seen it!
