Peggy Little on Pathfinder 16111/16112

Peggy Little - If I Had Wheels (Buddy Lackey) / Hardest Easy Thing (Jerry Lane) (Pathfinder 16111/16112)

Although most associated with the 1950s, Jack Rhodes continued to produce records, discover artists, and work on songwriting and publishing right up until his death in 1968. One of the later labels he was involved with was Benny Harris's Pathfinder out of Mineola. For this label he apparently discovered and recorded a young Peggy Little. Jack didn't write "If I Had Wheels," but he did co-own the publishing (Allroads Music BMI), and the dead wax says, "Rhodes." This record, a Rite pressing dating from 1966, is a little late for this blog, but is presented here for its' rarity and Jack Rhodes involvement.
