BEST DRESSED BEGGAR IN TOWN
There is very little information on Brownie Johnson on the Internet.
I purchased a 45 rpm single by him 'The Best Dressed Beggar in Town' b/w 'Just Pretending', this is country music in the style of Johnny Cash and Jim Reeves, it was released in the UK in 1962 on the Longhorn record label. I believe it is the same Brownie Johnson that released 'The Sun Would Never Shine' (a cool rockabilly number) on the Lynn record label in 1958.

The photo above comes from the 1956 'West End High School', Birmingham, Alabama yearbook. This looks remarkably like the Brownie Johnson on the 'Rock-a-billy Again' LP. But this has been unconfirmed.
Another release came from 1978, 'Little Boy Blue' b/w 'Deal Me in Again'. If anyone has any more information on Brownie Johnson give me a holler and help me fill in the gaps.
