(Norton 327) Seventeen song roundup on Thomas Johnson, the mysterious Lonesome Drifter culled from the vaults of Shreveport's Ram Records. His 1958 single Eager Boy stands as one of the most sought after records of all time. The Drifter's haunting vocals and stark instrumentation make him a truly unique figure in rockabilly and hillbilly music. This is real bone chilling stuff! For fans of Hasil Adkins' MOON OVER MADISON and Charlie Feathers' UH HUH HONEY albums.
