Jimmy & Duane
A ridiculously rare record to find, Jimmy & Duane's "I Want Some Lovin' Baby", recorded on Lee Hazlewood's ridiculously-named EB X.PRESTON label (actually a Four-Star custom recording), may seem like a engaging enough uptempo hillbilly duo number....but what one would probably never suspect from listening to the record is that Jimmy & Duane were in fact an early collusion by rockers Jimmy Delbridge and Duane Eddy. According to the label their backup band was Buddy Long and the Western Melody Boys, and according to Cees Klop, that lineup includes Keith Kolby on bass guitar. -Jeffrey Scott Holland

Justis, Bill

Born Birmingham, Alabama, October 14, 1927. Moved to Memphis at age 5 and became interested in music though his mother who was a concert pianist. Played saxophone in high school and later influenced by Duke Ellington. Formed a dance band at age 15 and after going to college played with professional dance bands during vacations. Did post grad work in music theory and started working in record business because he needed extra money after getting married in 1954. After leaving Sun he formed th short-lived label, Play Me, and then joined RCA-Groove as an artist and producer, later moving to Smash where he also recorded prolifically. Later with Monument and Sound Stage 7 in Nashville for whom he produced big hits by the Dixiebells. Has done arrangements for Kenny Rogers and many others. FOR THE RECORD... Bill played the trumpet and sax, arranged, produced and later became Musical Director for Sun Records. Part of the charm of his hit version of "Raunchy" was the off-tone of his saxophone. Justis had called another sax player to do the session but he begged off at the last minute, forcing Justis to play the lead part himself. He hadn't played the sax for a while and his rusty playing accounted for the strange tone.
