Breckenridge June 10, 1955

Mon Jul 01, 2013 7:36 pm

I had some pix from Breckenridge up on a page(s) on Scotty's site that Steve Bonner had sent me years ago. We reached that point in our timeline on Scotty's FB page so I decided to add two others he sent me to the page as well. Its not exactly a venue page but they're from the American Legion there. You may have seen them before also in one of Stanley Oberst's books

Its interesting, Scotty had only been using the Echosonic for a couple of weeks and someone asked about the other one on stage. Its a Standel, probably Jimmy Day's and is also pictured in Beaumont over a week later, see my thread in All Elvis

Nice!

Several of the photos are in A Boy From Tupelo (FTD, 2012). Great story about Beard and his gift of a Sun 209 78 to Moore. He sounds like he was well-liked. Questions:

Who is Delton Simmons?

What is the song Beard cut in 1967? Have you heard it?

I'm not sure about Simmons, Stanley had the same photo in his book and ID'd him. I originally did that page about 10 years ago and only used two of the 4 pix there at the time. I forget if the info about Beard came from Scotty, Steve or someone else. I think some of the info came from. I was contacted by Sid Holmes afterwards too who was from West Texas and played with most of them. He put out a book last year and may know about the song.

Thanks for the reply.

That YouTube upload appears to offer five of Dean Beard's 1956 Sun outtakes:

Rakin' and Scrapin'
Long Time Gone
Rock Around The Town
Don't Lie To Me
What Can I Do

They may all come from this collection:

Beard put out "Rakin' and Scrapin'" on Atlantic in April 1957:
