I erroneously posted Lanny Walker's "Teardrop In My Heart" credited to Hank Sadler. Derek questioned whether or not I had posted the correct file, I was adament that I had, but he was of course correct and I stand suitably abashed by my error. I have also posted the correct Hank Sadler recording (see: Hank Sadler #3).

Please Note: "Teardrop In My Heart" jumps at start

This is presumably the Lannie Walker who recorded for BLUE HEN.


  1. http://rcs-discography.com/rcs/artist.php?key=walk4600 = Lanie Walker on label no Lannie The Drunken Hobo

  2. My mistake, spelling wrong, it should have read Lanie Walker. interestingly his forename is spelt LANNIE on his THREE STAR Release.

  3. I never met Lannie walker, but I played in a rock band with his son Bobby in the mid sixties. The promotor and manager of the rock group The Fabulous Pharoahs was H. Lee Stevenson who recorded Lannie for Blue Hen Records in Harrington De. I remember Mr Stevenson had copies of Lannies records and other he recorded at Blue Hen Records. If I remember correctly, in the Mid 60's Lannie owned a Dry Cleaners in Bridgeville De. He and his son are now both gone. Aubrey C Fisher Jr
