Al Dexter & His Troopers


"Losing My Mind Over Wine, Women & Song&quot: "pistol packin' mama, rosalita, so long pal, too late to worry, i'm losing my mind over you, i'll wait for you dear, triflin' gal, i'm lost without you, guitar polka, honey do you think it's wrong, wine women and song, it's up to you, kokomo island, down at the roadside inn, rock and rye rag"
Hey, isn't that a Gibson Super-300 he's packin' there? Sure as shootin'! And why isn't Al in the Hall of Fame? He is, after all, the very reason Billboard added the "Hillbilly and Western" chart we know today as "Country Singles", and then topped it, twice at once (#1 and #2) with the SAME SONG!
