Abe Link & The Western Spotlighters

Abe Link & The Western Spotlighters
S.T.R.C. Canton Records 106
Canton, Ohio 1955
Skeleton Bookie / Town & Country Polka

Spooky, weird, primitive and downright creepy one here. Listen closely to the lyrics an "Honest Abe" will tell you all about burying a body in his cellar. These guys did at least three records on Canton, this one being the best by far.



  1. Hi Scott, This is a very good record! Thanks for the post. The steel player does similar effects as in James Rivers' "Haunted House" (Columbia). Take a listen to my site (in English) for Rivers' disk. A great site you've done. Keep up the good work! Greetings from France. Xavier
