The Raven - Calamity Jane (Uploaded by blacflag)
Albert Von Schweikert (lead guitar) and Karl Lamp (collaborator) wrote this song in 1967. The Raven was based in St. Pete, Florida and had a #1 hit with Calamity Jane in a few markets across the US. We backed Sonny and Cher and Neil Diamond, and also opened the shows for the Yardbirds (later to become Led Zeplin), the Who, and quite a few others from the 60’s. To see more photos and information about the Raven, visit the Facebook pages of Albert Von Schweikert, Marc Maconi, and Paul Purcell.

You Should Be Labeled With A Skull And Cross Bones! Your A Jinx To My Soul!Sparkle Moore (born Barbara Morgan in 1939 in Omaha, Nebraska) is a rockabilly singer, who recorded only a few songs during her career, but was highly influential as a pioneer of female rockabilly. Her name was earned because of her similarity to Sparkle, a supporting character in the Dick Tracy comic strip. Sparkle dressed in men’s clothing, often including leather, and sported an Elvis-influenced pompadour.In 1956, she toured with Gene Vincent and was scheduled to perform on the Grand Ol’ Opry, which was subsequently cancelled due to illness. In 1957, Sparkle retired from music after becoming pregnant to concentrate on raising a family.This one has been on my hit list for a many a long year. Just unearthed for a scant 1 dollar. Its a well played little record but it still gots it!!!Sparkle Moore - Skull And Cross Bones - Sparkle Moore - Rock-A-BopRead more: http://devildick.blogspot.com/2011/06/sparkle-moore-skull-and-cross-bones.html#ixzz1PkNbGcwI
