DON KIDWELL and His Red River Valley Boys
SYLVAN 350

I FOUND A STAR ON EARTH                                       51-50-51-52
Tune here shows promise, with warbler delivering straight and clear, but botched backing hurts side beyond redemption.

HOW COULD YOU?                                                                       51-50-51-52
Same complaint.

DON KIDWELL (HIS RED RIVER VALLEY BOYS)
MERCURY 6188

DARLIN’ MINE                                                                               59-63-58-56
Dull warbling of an ordinary, nopunch mountain love song.

JEALOUS HEART                                                                           63-66-63-60
Song is worthy, but apathetic treatment is yawnful.
