Flip's Clips No.3 - Bobby Helms
Forget Jingle Bell Rock and for a moment ignore the superb Fraulein, country star Bobby Helms had a rocking soul (as testified by the better tracks on his BF 2cd set). It's personified by the stone classic Tennessee Rock and Roll and this here lil` darlin from the Town Hall Party show, I`m Leavin Now (Long Gone Daddy)
Great version of the Hank classic and watch out for uncle Joe Maphis laying out that twintwangtastic good ole basic roadhouse stomp behind the Helmeister and though the quality is average surely that`s Mr Skeets Macdonald lurking in the back.
