፨ Slim Whitman, Indian Love Call

Hi AL Saw your request coming up, may this be another a great New 2009 Year for a bullish love call..

Born Ottis Dewey Whitman Jr. he is one of the best-selling and most influential artists in country music history and yet at the same time is one of the most unrecognized by the American at large. Growing up, Whitman liked the country music of Jimmie Rodgers that he was hearing on the radio but did not embark on a musical career until the end of World War II after he had served in the South Pacific with the United States Navy. Whitman is a self taught left-handed guitarist. Whitman is right handed, but he lost almost all of the second finger on his left hand in an accident. Ottis Whitman worked in a shipyard in Tampa while developing a musical career, eventually performing with a band known as the "Variety Rhythm Boys". Whitman's first big break came when agent Colonel Tom Parker heard him singing on radio and offered to represent him. Signed with RCA records, he was billed as the cowboy singer "Slim Whitman"and released his first single in 1948. (from Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
