The Boll Weevil Song

This video is from 1982 and the orchestra was directed by Gil Askey, under some notes from viewers who saw this video on YouTube.

 

It was 1961 and with a big smile on my face and a pretty blonde on my arm I drove through Santa Ana Canyon in my 60 Chevy convertible. With the top down and Brooke Benton singing about the Boll Weevil, I was in heaven.

A real classic. Thanks, its hard to find live performances of Brook Benton, the man with the big baritone voice. Oh, and if only I could find a video with him and Dinah Washington, that would be like gold.

 

Next video will be published in March, and that will be: Itīs Just A Matter Of Time, from The Ed Sullivan Show
