Title: From Billy Mize -1958 Demos For Cash

Billy Mize sings songs he wrote for Johnny Cash

Style: Hillbilly, Country, Rockabilly

Mize was a pioneer on the Bakersfield music scene that spawned Buck Owens and Merle Haggard. His first major national appearance as an artist came when DECCA released his Who Will Buy The Wine in 1955. Though not a hit for Billy, it become a Top 10 single for Charlie Walker, and was recorded by Ernest Tubb, Jim Croce, Jerry Lee Lewis, Merle Haggard, and others. Here, for the first time, are the demos of all six songs that Billy Mize wrote for Johnny Cash. They were recently re-discovered in a garage among several nearly-forgotten recordings, and provide a fascinating snapshot of a regional West Coast country star showing off his skills for writing songs that were strategically targeted to a specific artist......
