RECORDED: 1960 in a barn on a farm near Janesville, Wisconsin

RELEASED: Leaf Records C-234, same year

ARTIST: Dick & Roger

A SIDE: Greatest Girl (C-234)

WRITER: Dick Campbell-Roger Hesseling

B SIDE: Happy-Go-Lucky (C-235, instrumental)

WRITER: Dick Campbell

PRODUCER: Campbell & Hesseling (uncredited)

MUSICIANS: Roger Hesseling, lead and background vocal, tenor drum

__________Dick Campbell, background vocal, lead and rythmn electric guitar

DETAILS: Campbell, 16 years old, was unfamiliar with the importance of bass

__________on his first record and totally ignored the need for one. Mort

__________Armstrong, a drummer, had been scheduled to play, but a dispute

__________ended that. Instead Hesseling banged along on a rented tenor drum

__________while Campbell played rythmn guitar. Then both sang along with the

__________track while Campbell added lead guitar and the combination was

__________recorded on a second tape machine. Except for the tenor drum, the

__________instrumentation and use of a vocal on one side with an instrumenal

__________on the other was inspired by the Fendermen from Wisconsin who had

__________released a hit on Mule Skinner Blues b/w Torture (instrumental) in

__________the summer of 1960 using only two guitars too. Only the rythmn

__________guitar was in a bass tone and the Fendermen were way better. The

__________Dick & Roger record sold 100 copies.
