"BONNIE GUITAR: THE NORTHWEST'S TRAIL-BLAZING POP PIONEER"
by Peter Blecha
[Courtesy and copyright, 2008, HistoryLink.org]

Musician, songwriter, singer, and major hit-maker -- Seattle's Bonnie "Guitar" Buckingham, is one of the biggest stars to ever emerge from the Pacific Northwest's music scene. And her path to fame was one that saw her become an early "crossover" artist: never satisfied to find a niche and rest on her laurels, Guitar created songs that alternately scored on the pop Best Seller charts and/or on the country music charts all the way from the 1950s up through the 1980s. But far from focusing solely on her own career, the multi-talented artist also contributed her skills as a (rare female) session instrumentalist, talent scout, record label executive, audio engineer, and session producer to the success of many other aspiring young talents. She will be remembered by history as a pioneer in realms of the music biz then traditionally dominated by men. [READ MORE]

Cataloged on Dolton, but never issued under this number. See instead Dolton #10.

In the  the book Liberty Records, A History of the Recording Company and Its Stars 1955 - 1971 (Michael "Doc Rock" Kelly  1993) Vol. I on  page 75 it is written "Bonnie (Guitar) had two Dolton releases, Dolton #10 "Candy Apple Red"  b/w "Come To Me, I Love You" and Dolton #19. which was the same two songs released together.".

In spite of  the above notation, as of December, 2019 no physical evidence has  been found to indicate  Dolton #19  was ever pressed or released.
