Wallace Van Riper "Wally" Deane still a teen when brought from Bivens, Texas to Globe Records by Tex Dean, cut three very fine rockabilly performances with accompaniment that included hot finger picking a la Scotty Moore, whose guitar had done much to enliven the debut releases of a Sam Phillips discovery named Elvis Presley. Presley's initial success had not gone unnoticed by Lillian McMurray (trumpet Records-Globe Records) nor by Wally Deane.
"Wally's hiccupy, excited singing showed he was firmly aboard the same hay wagon that Presley, Buddy Holly, and Carl Perkins were riding towards stardom."
