Just Sold Out!
Great 60s country exotica and tales of the American West from actor Lorne Greene – with arrangements that combine stripped down, echoey guitar with the big & glossy RCA sound of the era, and even more brash bigness from Hollywood – all done with endearingly poker-faced vocals by ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album

Arrangements ... read moreLP, Vinyl record album
