Straight & Square - Johnny Pickard

Straight & Square
Johnny Pickard - Playing & Singing It
Susannah Recordings
Dee-Dee Recording Service - Windsor, Pennsylvania

From the back cover: After leaving Duke (University) he (Pickard) was employed by a large cotton manufacturing from, saved up enough to purchase his first full-size accordion and started to put his knowledge of theory to use and practice. In a few months several "gigs" with a band under the baton of Jimmy Talbert convinced Johnny that this was his kind of work. He later joined the Ceil Ellington band of Richmond, Virginia as vocalist and also started working on his talent as a single entertainer, eventually ending up in spots like Leon & Eddies in New York, The Club Charles in Baltimore and many others.

    Is my computer broken?

    1. No, it's not you. Divshare, the file server must be down again...

  2. Problem's continuing here and on "Unearthed" as well.
