all my friends are boppin' the blues
Another collector clcd mystery solved. I have seen Befair (WA) 45 - 501 Bill Griffith "Baby" (1959) Listed as Rockabilly but not heard it.
Thanks for this song, can you please post the flip called "Patty Q" ?
Thanks, a local label and a great song! I couldn't find much on the label but Belfair is a town a bit North and West of Tacoma. Maybe that's where one of the label owners lived. I did find mention of a Big Bill Griffith who owned a studio in Tacoma, probably the same Bill Griffith you mention Mr. Hobo. Wonder if he owned this label and if Skate Board was recorded there?
Thanks mcatahoula. Now that you mention a studio owned by Bill Griffith, I see the release number is WG-1003, letters "WG" very likely standing for William Griffith.
Maybe you two should be Police detectives? Some real slothing goin' on here. Thanks for puting 2 + 2 together.
Very good Bob!! I didn't notice that. I contacted someone who knows much more about this than myself and he felt that the label was probably owned by Bill Griffith - not only did he own the studio, but he also lived in Belfair.
Bill Griffith & the Jack Pine Ramblers were a mainstay at the Belfair Barn.1952 – Bill Griffith & The Jack Pine Ramblers6091 WONDER WHY RAMBLERS OP-1326092 AUTOGRAPH BOOK RAMBLERS OP-1324star custom/Johan
Belfair 501 - Bill Griffith - "Baby" b/w "Think About Me". Starday Music - 1959. B-Side not bad. Is this the first release for the label?
