Johnny B. Goode

Frank Salinas
with the Johnny Rushing Orch.

Johnny B. Goode / Witch Doctor

Moonglow 5083x45 [Belgium]

Johnny B. Goode

Two "hit of the day" covers by the unknown Frank Salinas backed by the equally unknown Johnny Rushing orchestra. Same track of Johnny B. Goode also issued on Tops Records as by Steve Todd while Witch Doctor has been issued in France as by the Allegrettes on the Pacific label. I wouldn't be at all surprised that the Witch Doctor track also came on Tops Records as by Ross Barbour

The history of Moonglow Records goes back to the 1950s in Belgium, although most know Moonglow as a 1960s Los Angeles-based label. Albert van Hoogten was owner of Ronnex Records in Belgium, and sent his brother, Rene Jan van Hoogten, to the United States in the mid-1950s to set up a label here. The first version of Moonglow Records was run out of Woodside, New York.



Addenda (2 July 2020) : obviously something more powerful than me and you has his hand on the file sharing thing.  OpenDrive and Mediafire don't allow any direct download for these two Frank Salinas files. So, Amazon has the right to sell something they probably don't own?
