Dickey Lee has had three phases to his career. He is best remembered as a pop singer who produced such songs of anguish as “Patches” and “Laurie” during the early to mid-1960s. He would go on to become a country artist who charted 29 singles.
What people forget was he started as a rockabilly artist on the legendary Sun label, which was the home of Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, Johnny Cash, Jerry Lee lewis and others.
He signed with the label during 1957 and I’m sort of amazed he had a release issued as a 78. I am assuming it was also issued as a 45 as 78’s were on the way out at the time.
“Good Lovin'” did not receive any chart action and his time with Sun was brief. Still, it was a part of some of the best music of his career.
