More Back Chat from Kitty Wells

A few weeks ago I posted a couple of Kitty Wells' answer songs. I've since found another.

(I'll Always Be Your) Fraulein is a reply to Bobby Helms' massive 1957 hit Fraulein and simply tells the story from the girlfriend's perspective. Here's the pair.

MP3: Bobby Helms - Fraulein

Buy Behind The Legend Of The Original Radio Stars at Amazon

MP3: Kitty Wells - (I'll Always Be Your) Fraulein

Buy The Complete Kitty Wells at Amazon (a bargain!)

Another exciting discovery today is a trio of Bear Family compilations called And the Answer Is: Great Answer Discs from the '50s and '60s.

The All Music Guide review of the records is quite amusing: "The music here is for fetishists and collectors... but for any country or pop music fan with an interest in the arcane and unusual, And The Answer Is is a very enjoyable series." So, in a nutshell, tailor-made to my taste! I'll definitely be investigating further.
