BILL & BINK (with drummer Dwight) - BED BUG BOOGIE / DO AND DON'T BLUES - 45 RPM SINGLE - HU-SE-CO #1358 - 1957?

An ultra-rare hillbilly rockabilly record from the mid-to-late 50's, quite possibly 1957, on the Hobert, Oklahoma record label HU-SE-CO. Hu-Se-Co released a few great rockabilly and country records in the 50's, and this is one of them. This is one of the best hillbilly records I've ever heard...straight out of the swamps of Oklahoma. A half-narrated in a THICK southern accent a-side, a humorous tale about a guy who just wants to go to bed, but instead spends the night fighting off beg bugs. The b-side is the better of the two...another great hillbilly rockabilly tune with a great rhythm, killer vocals, decent guitar work and another silly theme. The duo is Bill Smith and Bink Burns, and I believe this was their only record as a duo. It seems like it was intended to be a children's record, but who knows, maybe they were just two fun and crazy dudes. But man... was I pumped when I first placed this baby on the turntable. I've uploaded video clips on youtube of both sides of the record, you can veiw them below...

DO AND DON'T BLUES: /watch?v=kDf8VcrfRN0


Vinyl: VG (plays fine, though a-side has an area when the drums first kick in that has a scuffing sound for about 5 turns. B-side plays great and grade it VG+. Visually the record has some light scratches, and only the flaw already mentioned on the a-side is audible. The record appears to have been cleaned with some kind of incorrect solvent and has left behind a cloudy coat which we weren't able to remove with our cleaning fluid. Thankfully the record still plays great with only average )

Labels: VG+ (there's a "star" stamp on the a-side, but you can only really see it in the pic, and not so well with the naked eye)

OUR VINYL GRADING SYSTEM: (record & cover are graded separately in each listing)

SEALED (NEW) ... Never opened, still sealed, presumed mint vinyl.

NM (NEAR MINT) ... The highest grading used for an opened record. Practically mint, no major flaws if any flaws at all.

VG+/NM (VERY GOOD PLUS TO NEAR MINT) ... Better than VG+ but not quite NM.

VG+ (VERY GOOD PLUS) ... A great looking record with perhaps a few small imperfections such as a light scratch or two. Cover with a small crease or slight ring formation, nothing hideous.

VG/VG+ (VERY GOOD TO VERY GOOD PLUS) ... Better than VG but not quite VG+

VG (VERY GOOD) ... A record with obvious use but not abused. Visible light scratches, no skips, plays fine with some surface noise ( Cover may have splits, a ring, rounded corners or a few obvious creases.

VG-/VG (VERY GOOD MINUS TO VERY GOOD) ... Better than VG- but not quite VG.

VG- (VERY GOOD MINUS) ... A fairly abused record that still plays without skips, a lot of surface noise and several imperfections. Cover will be split, water damaged, creased, or damaged corners.

G/VG- (GOOD TO VERY GOOD MINUS) ... Better than G but not quite VG-

G (GOOD) ... Pretty much a filler copy, scratched to hell, skips, barely playable. Cover is damaged beyond belief. (We will not be selling records in this condition unless it is a VERY rare and sought-after record, so don't expect to see anything graded "GOOD" very often).
