“Daydreamin’” was a honky tonker by Bud Deckelman. The song was actually the B-side of “Let’s Pretend”, the only 7″ single that he recorded for Memphis based Meteor Records in 1955. Meteor hoped to increase the audience for their R&B based country music outside of the South, where Bud was from, by opening a branch of their record label in Hollywood. Bud also recorded a single for Stomper Time Records–also out of Memphis, which had a stable chock full of Hillbillies and Rockabillies. Here’s our take on Daydreamin’.

This is our second Specialty Records artist that we’ve recorded a song by. It’s a late 50s jumper by singer songwriter Wynona Carr. Now, she was a true innovator and maverick that mixed up the blues and jazz and r&b and swirled it together into a froth with her golden Gospel singing background. She was a stone cold belter and a wickedly cool and sophisticated lyric writer. We hope you dig our take of this slammer.
