Southern Stars - 1952

Click above song title to listen/download

Here is the first record by the Southern Stars. Recorded in 1952, it is the first of four records they released on Chess Records between 1952 and 1954. As it turns out, this particular record and all of the 78's of record 1520, were mis-labeled. The song is actually 'World's Not In A Bad Condition'. Actual listening to the record bears this out. 

Other then that, there does not seem to be a lot known about this fine, 'rough and tumble' quartet. This is great, heartfelt music!
