Sid King & the Five Strings

I have been listening a lot to an album lately that I forgot I even had. I love rediscovering music. In this case it is a CD Bear Family put out of Sid King & the Five Strings, Gonna Shake This Shack Tonight. A friend of mine gave me a copy of this years ago and I am so glad that he did. Actually, I think he gave it to me before Viva Las Vegas #7 since Sid King was to perform that year. There are a ton of songs on this CD as per usual when it comes to Bear Family Records. Their earlier stuff was definitely more western but later got a bit more rock'n'roll. I laugh every time I hear 'Who Put the Turtle in Myrtle's Girdle' which was one of their earliest recordings as well as 'I Like It.' They then went on to record covers such as 'Drinking Wine, Spo-Dee-O-Dee,' 'Blue Suede Shoes,' and 'Ooby Dooby.' Another of my favorites off this disc is 'Sag, Drag and Fall.' Below is the track listing. Check it out!
