After Dark - Kitty Wells


Divided By Two

After Dark
Kitty Wells
HI-FI Decca Records DL 8888

From the back cover: Early in Kitty's career she captured the ears and hearts of listeners as a vocalist over radio stations in Nashville, Knoxville, Shreveport, Raleigh and other cities. From some time she was featured on the popular Louisiana Hayride shows and has been a standout star for WSM's Grand Ole Opry show, as well as drawing sellout crowds at the many personal appearance dates she fills throughout this country and Canada.

From Billboard - June 1, 1959: Another great collection of ballads having to do with the seamy and sinful sides of life, sung as only Kitty Wells can sing them. All her typical haunting nasal quality comes thru on these tales of tragedy and heartbreak. Sample titles would be "He's Married To Me," "After Dark," "I Heard The Juke Box Playing," etc. Fans should dig this one.
