I Don't Know

Bonnie Fussell and the Dixie Crystals

I Don't Know

Red Stick Music BMI

Bonnie Fussell had a minor local hit in Baton Rouge in 1959 with "Where Are You" on the Hammond label. And you have certainly heard the flip "Too High Class".

This Carmie release is probably from 1964. Carmie 102 is by Bobby Loveless (aka Little Lee Allen). Buck Rogers' "Nobody's Darling but Mine" was also probably on the same label.

The label was possibly owned by Sam Montalbano (also known as Sam Montel), who operated the Montel and Montel-Michelle labels in Baton Rouge (red stick in french, name of his publishing company).

In the mid-sixties Bonnie launched his own label, Bofuz, in partnership with Tom Guarino.
