Last Night I Heard Somebody Cry

Sue Thompson

Mercury Records


Song penned by W.C. "Red" Wortham.  The other side has been posted HERE

 A former jazz guitar player from the 1930s, bandleader and songwriter in the late 40s, Red Wortham married country singer Tabby West and migrated into production and music publishing.  Mr. Wortham is perhaps best known for his association with label Bullet Records and with Johnnie Bragg and the Prisonaires, who had a hit in the 1950s called "Just Walkin' in the Rain."

Bullet Records and Sur-Speed Records imprints were just two of the independent "custom labels" that Wortham established in Nashville (others included the Avenue, Silver City, Slam, Viking, and Gold Mine labels).

 He passed away December 31. 2002 in Bon Aqua. TN..
