Editor's note: I don't know if the eye patch is for show or was a result of an accident but in his early career photos it was missing. Apparently this dude was pretty big in the late 50s and though his star wound down in the 60s his version of "Jingle Bell Rock" was a hit for several years.
I came across this record on a few blogs and managed to track down some audio from WFMU's site. I would love to hear more from this honky-tonkin' caterwaulin' queen. Listen to the tracks below and I think you will too!
