Duane Eddy's House of Twang

Jimmy and Duane - 1956

Trawling through old copies of The Cash Box magazine I came across this reference to a young Duane, before he hit super-stardom, in the March 31st 1956 issue.

...would have been around the same time as this photo was taken...Duane still with his Les Paul and Jimmy Dell on piano.

Did Duane sing?

Used to. When he stopped singing, things picked up!

Great finds! Thanks for posting.

This is amazing - maybe it's a mistake by Cashbox but it looks as if "Soda Fountain Girl" might have been scheduled for release on the Viv label?

Don't say that! What about Break My Mind and Lovingbird? Really glad to have got that single!
