January 30, 2016 Record of the Day

Dwight-YokamDwight Yoakam was first rejected by Nashville for being “too Country.” So he headed to California where his hero Buck Owens lived. His 1984 EP on Oak records “Guitar, Cadillacs, etc.” helped him get that Nashville deal after all. Reprise records added four songs. The LP version on Reprise from 1986 is worth no more than $10.00 but the Oak records original from 1984 is worth up to $1,000.00 today.
