"Walk-Don't Run" / "The McCoy"

SERIAL#: 25
DATE: 1960-07

MISC NOTES:
This disc was the second Dolton  issuance of "Walk-Don't Run."  On it, the B-Side was changed to a band-written song, probably to save paying royalties to the composer of the original B-Side song, "Home."

"The McCoy" was an up tempo reworking of  the instrumental track of The Ventures initial 1959 45 rpm outing which featured "The Real McCoy" b/w "Cookies And Coke" (Blue Horizon 100). "The Real McCoy" was a novelty take -off on the then-popular television show The Real McCoys starring Walter Brennan. On the original Blue Horizon recording rhythm guitarist Don Wilson did voice impersonations of Brennan.
