Late sixties?

Memphis (or West Memphis, Arkansas?) artist and radio personality (on KWAM), Jim Climer had two records issued in 1962 : on the Kris label, Little Twister/On Top Of Old Smokey and on Fernwood : Tall Mack The Lumberjack/he Clown With A Broken Heart.  According to Wayne Jackson, trumpetist with The Mar-Keys, Jim billed himself in these days as "Jim Climer, Ninety Pounds of Rock and Roll".

A friend of Eddie Bond, he co-wrote with him a song entitled "Ballad of Buford Pusser."
