Christi And Coats On Stage

Christi And Coats On Stage
Art Records ALP-42

Recorded Live In The Wreck Bar Of The Yankee Clipper Hotel, Fort Lauderdale, Florida

From the back cover: My (Jethro Van Burns) introduction to Smokey and Bobbi was in the sleepy little village of Las Vegas, Nevada, at the world famous Golden Nugget. They were working on the afternoon shift - a challenge to any act. The audience this time of day is made up of the losers, the hung-over types from the night before and the slot machine players, who listen for music and falling jack pots at the same time. Smoky and Bobbi come on relaxed and easy, singing and playing a stage full of instruments and their comedy is a sharp as you will hear on any stage, night club floor, or television show! They not only capture the attention of the audience, they fracture them!

I Guess I Could Change

From the back cover: Having Nancy and Bill entertaining our guests in Maxie's Lounge has been, and still is a joy. Their nightly performances have made our lounge one of the "in" spots on the beach (Madeira Beach) for both tourists and local guests. Their music is as warm as their personalities…… In a word, they are the true meaning of PANCHE!!

Eye On Eva
Mr. & Mrs. Nickie

Violin And Piano Music For Reminiscing
Spectra Sound Service SS1201

From the back cover: This album contains highlights from a program Nickie and Eva Johnson, 80 and 70 years old respectively, presented to the Golden Years Fellowship at the First United Methodist Church, Red Wing, Minnesota on October 6, 1971. The thought in making this recording is to share and preserve the life of Nickie and Eva with their many friends.

That said, from the back cover... in very small type... Jacket Cover: Eva and Nickie Johnson in the "Eight Wheeler" that Nickie designed and built.

That's all I got about the "wonder rod" on the cover... and I wonder where the old "Eight Wheeler" is today?

The Two Sides Of Ginny And The Gallons
Downey DLPS-1003

This is a "split" album featuring, for the most part on side one, Ginny's husband, Rex Gallion on trippy guitar and mandolin numbers.

From the back cover: In 1951 Rex organized the Veltones and then started looking for a girl singer. It was at this time Ginny Greer auditioned and became a part of the group. This was a happy relation because three years later Rex and Ginny were married.

Side two features Ginny's vocal treatments.

From the back cover: Ginny Greer, Gallion born, Virginia Culmsee, in Sioux City, Iowa and was the youngest of three daughters. She made her first professional appearance on Radio at the ripe old age of five years. She has always been in the entertainment field, either on Radio, T.V. or Records. Ginny loves to sing the ballads with a deep meaning in the lyric lines. As you listen, you too will be intrigued with her ability to bring you in and let you live the song with her. We know you will enjoy this side of the "Gallions" as much as we do.
