An Ol’ Tin Cup 45 by Lorne Greene

an ol' tin cup Lorne Greene

Lorne Greene, 1914-1987, will always be remembered for the role of Ben Cartwright on the long running television series BONANZA. Many people forget his starring role on the original BATTLESTAR GALACTICA. Way back in time, 1940-1943, he was the lead news broadcaster for CBS Radio.

During the mid-1960s, while in his early 50s, he gave it a try as a recording artist. His first single, “Ringo,” made it all the way to number one. “An Ol’ Tin Cup” was representative of his releases. They were half sung and half spoken. He never had another real hit and his career as a recording artist quickly came to a merciful end.
