Record #0319: Faded Love / My Little Red Wagon – LEON McAULIFF

Cimarron 4057 (original, promo) USA, Nov. 1962
Music by:  Side A – John Wills, Bob Wills; Side B – Rex Griffin
Musicians: Leon McAuliffe (steel guitar), Bill Dozier (lead guitar), Chuck Jenning (guitar), Ken Cobb (bass), Solomon Gomboa (drums), Keith Coleman (fiddle), Curly Lewis (fiddle), Bob White (fiddle), Clarence Cagle (piano), Jack Loyd (tenor sax clarinet)
Recording sessions: Produced by Don Thompson in Dallas, TX, Aug. 15-16, 1962
Highest chart positions:  US Country #22

These instrumentals of western swing could not be found in Youtube, so no clips available.

To me the flip side sounds a lot like the flip of this Sonny Fisher single. Fisher has picked up a lot of ideas from the Rex Griffin song.

Griffin also wrote “Everybody’s Trying To Be My Baby” which was covered by Carl Perkins in 1956 and by The Beatles in 1964.

List price:  Not listed in Goldmine catalog
