I know you’ve all bin waitin’ with Bated Breath to hear …
… who the Mystery Artist was who sang that
Mystery Song I’d been looking.
It took over a month …
But I wasn’t going to give up.
I had long exhausted everything I could think of to find it:
Lyric Searches -Artist searches – Album databases searches
of Country and Country Rock Artists from the early 70’s … and I even used
Shazam which claims it “will identify any song in seconds.” But it didn’t.
When it was finally discovered who it was, I was surprised to see that it was a Country Rock artist I had investigated early in my Search,
but had dismissed him because I couldn’t locate
any album by him that had that song on it.
Finally I asked Greg at Country 105 Radio if he could help me out
and I sent him the Lyrics and MP3.
It took him a few days, but he found it!
I had not been confident.
But here it is:
I’ve also discovered that Ray is still around
making music and giving concerts.
Good to hear.
Now I can move on to my next mystery.
