July 29, 2017 Record of the Day

Fans of the TV western “Rawhide” know Sheb Wooley as Pete Nolan who starred along with Clint Eastwood and Eric Fleming. Eastwood also gave Sheb Wooley a roll in his 1976 movie “The Outlaw Josey Wales.” But the Rock N Roll audience knows him best for his 1958 novelty classic “The Purple People Eater.” The 45, released on M-G-M is no more than $20.00 but the 78 rpm version is worth up to $100.00 today. Both are shown here.
