HALF HEARTED LOVE * MAC CURTIS * KING 4949 * USA
This 1970s reissue of Mac Curtis' second release is given the same B side, label design and catalogue number as the original; second best for all those, European and British collectors of this hot rockin Rockabilly music they were denied of at the time. Mac Curtis began his musical career in high school in 1954, where it is said he was banned from playing due to sexually suggestive movements on stage! surprising that, who would have thought teenagers had anything to do with sex, back then. Despite this impediment to his career he carried on playing his guitar along with school friends Jim and Ken Galbraith, citing his musical influences as Joe Turner, Chuck Berry, and Little Richard. It was in the following year that he came to the attention of King records and in 1956 his first record If I Had A Woman was released on #4927.
