Shaking Rolling Boogie

It's not hard to see why there is no information on Ricky Wynn on the internet (or indeed Campbell Records). I've had this record for years and I don't know why I've still have it, I hardly ever give it a spin. I like the backing music, but not Ricky's vocal on 'Shaking Rolling Boogie'. Strangely I prefer 'Till Eternity' (but not enough to give it regular plays) it seems so did the guys or guy at Campbell records (R. Campbell was writer of both sides) as it was given A side status.
Anyone out there in Internet-land know anything about Ricky or Campbell records?

3331 Scenic Highway,   Memphis, Tennessee

Moon records began in 1956 in Memphis, Tennessee. Owner Cordell Jackson had previously recorded demos with Sam Phillips at Memphis Recording Service and Sun Studios. She is credited as the first woman to record, promote, engineer and produce music on her own independent record label and is revered as an early rock-a-billy/roots pioneer. Nashville producer and recording artist Chet Atkins provided advice to Jackson concerning the formation of her new label, Moon Records. Moon Records early stable of artists included Barney Burcham, Johnny Tate, Joe Wallace, Alan Page and Earl Patterson.
She was born Cordell Miller in Pontotoc, Mississippi on July 15, 1923.
Cordell received encouragement from her father who played fiddle in a string band called the Pontotoc Ridge Runners. She learned piano, stand-up bass and guitar and by her twelfth birthday had performed with her father’s band on a Tupelo, Mississippi radio show. Jackson also played mandolin, harmonica and banjo but is best known as an electric guitar player. In 1943 she married William Jackson and moved to Memphis. In 1947 Cordell purchased recording equipment from Kabakoff Radio and Appliance in Memphis and began writing and taping songs as well as jamming with other musicians.

Jackson began recording and releasing product in the late 70’s when she realized there was a demand for the early Moon singles. Her career received a boost from the rock-a-billy craze in Europe which brought her international attention. Tav Falco’s Panther Burns covered “She’s The One That’s Got It” and “Dateless Nights” and she began performing with the band between sets. An appearance in the movie “Great Balls of Fire”, Budweiser commercials, Late Night with David Letterman and Regis & Kathy Lee helped spread her image as the “rockin’ granny” twanging on her red Hagstrom electric guitar. Interviews with Billboard, Spin Magazines, MTV and Entertainment Tonight and others showcased her spitfire playing and personality. She marketed her own video singles through her label in the 1990’s, including Dan Roses’ production of “The Split”. Jackson is also featured in the film entitled Wayne County Ramblin’ by Dan Rose. Memorabilia and information concerning Cordell Jackson and Moon Records are included in the Memphis Rock ‘n’ Soul Museum.

Crazy Rhythm

Back in 1977 I was 17 and had acquired my second drape jacket. The third would be a tailor made grey drape suit. I was getting more into the modern (at the time) rockin' bands on scene such as The Flying Saucers, C.S.A, Vernon & The G.I's and of course Crazy Cavan & The Rhythm Rockers. This form of Rock 'n' Roll music was pushed into the back of my record collection as my knowledge on early Rockabilly and Rock 'n' Roll singers and groups grew. 
The footsoldiers of Rock 'n' Roll would be my new Kings & Queens. The likes of Charlie Feathers, Mac Curtis, Glen Glenn, Wanda Jackson and Pat Cupp entered my life and my door was open and welcoming.
