Around the world, Canadian singer Bob King is mainly known by rockabilly fans for two tracks he cut for RCA Canada in 1958, Rockin' The Juke Box and Party Hop. But in his native Canada, King is remembered as a staunch advocate for traditional country. In a career that stretched from the early fifties until his untimely death in 1989 at the age 55, King found success as the lead singer of the The Happy Wanderers, as a solo performer, and as a duet act with his French-Canadian wife, Marie. His recording career began with ten classic singles cut for RCA Canada between 1955 and 1958.
Included are the original versions of Laurel Lee and Let's Make A Fair Trade, two songs he re-recorded and made into crowd favorites throughout his career. Also included are several forgotten honky tonk classics like Daydreamer's Blues, Train's Late Tonight, and Hey Mam, along with his cover of the Charlie Feathers classic Defrost Your Heart, which was cut only weeks after Feathers' original was released on Sun Records. This
disc features 21 tracks: all of King's recordings for RCA Canada and a bonus alternate take of You're A Strange Little Girl, along with detailed liner notes and photos.
