legendary stardust cowboy mercury 45s 1968

The Legendary Stardust Cowboy's three Mercury 45s, along with some Ohio obscurities a discerning pal from Cleveland's original Record Rendezvous squirreled away for me long long ago. Both Johnny Angel and Tom Claire were neighborhood lounge Sinatras, the former liable to scare off even the wildest divorcée with his deranged BANG! BANG! BANG! scatting. Ernest & D.L. Rocco bring outsider art into the 80s, while Alan Zahorchak is in an orbit all his own. Total WHAT, Jones?! Finally, a perfect photo of our hero in Vegas, dressed for success, from the interwebs.

Er, uh, I realized I was on thin ice here. Hopefully you can find it in your heart to forgive me.

I am a huge fan of Wesley Willis,a nd I think that is why I dig on the Lege. Just a regular guy trying to buck the trends and make music HIS way, no Autotune, no cookie cutter music. When you hear Lege, you know who it is. Great job on being your own man, and for having the strength to be truly different.
