Webb Pierce is at the border of rockabilly on the A-side, but I guess the correct genre label for this is still western swing. His follow-up single "Teenage Boogie" was in the same area - maybe a bit closer to rockabilly.

Very often Pierce got both sides of the record in the charts, but not this time.

List price:  Very Good+ is $10, Near Mint is $20
