22 Aug. Birthday of country crooner Ricky Riddle (22 Aug 2012-8 Aug 1988), whose fine baritone voice was a trailblazer for the early Eddie Arnold and Jim Reeves style of country crooning. BACM’s CD serves up a couple of dozen of his recordings, all from the early 1950s. Good straight out country, a fresh listen to recordings you almost certainly will not be familiar with. Includes Price Of Love, a fine duet with Anita Kerr later of the Anita Kerr Singers. The band is led by guitarist Harold ‘Hal’ Bradley who became an A-team session man through the 60s’, both on rhythm and lead.
