Neither recording featured here could be described at any stretch of the imagination as Country or Hillbilly, yet each is relevant in its own way.

The first is an instrumental “Boogie Square” released in STARDAY’s 1000 “Square Dance” series. This recording, judging by the master numbers, dates from sometime around mid 1954. “Boogie Square” was also issued with Calls on STARDAY D-1002 (Master number 2167) credited to “BUZZ” BROWN With KAY RIGGS AND HIS ORCHESTRA.

Bob Bertram, who one assumes is the same Bob Bertram who owned the BERTRAM INTERNATIONAL label, offers the original version of “Babies And Bacon” which was covered by Roy Hogsed on CAPITOL. The flip side of “Babies And Bacon” is “Your Just My Style” another song that was covered by Roy Hogsed for CAPITOL. Both songs can be best described as POP, I have not recorded  “Your Just My Style” due to the prominent organ throughout .
