YOUNG LOVE

Latest update on 24/10/2020

Artist: Ric Cartey & The Jive-Tones
Author: Carole Joyner/Ric Cartey
Label: Stars/RCA Victor
Year: 1956

Coauthor; country singer from Atlanta, GA. B-side of Oooh-Eeee (Jerry Reed). Capitol A&R-man Ken Nelson encouraged Sonny James to record this B-side. Reason enough for RCA Victor to purchase Cartey's Stars masters.
