Les & Helen Tussey & The Golden Hill Boys

Les & Helen Tussey & The Golden Hill Boys
Poor Boy Records 105
RITE pressing 2232/2233
Muncie, Indiana 1959
They Went Around / Married To A Friend

The Poor Boy label is familiar to most for its releases by The Van Brothers (Servant Of Love), and Norman Witcher (Somebody's Been Rocking My Boat). But this little ditty is by far my favorite that the label has to offer. Les & Helen Tussey had two releases for Poor Boy, the other being a nice country gospel tune, and also released a pure country two-sider on the Madison label from Cincinnati, famous for its release by The Big Whopper (Nelson Young). Everytime I listen to this song, it makes me think of the Darlin Family on the "Andy Griffith Show". I can just picture them pickin' and singin' this tune with Andy in front of his fire place in the living room...
