How about "Pop A Top".
Some great steel work on that one. Very Happy

Godspeed Maxine.

The Browns' music occupied a space that was not only lyrically and musically valid, the harmony of sibling vocals with Jim and Bonnie was an added touch of reverence to song craft.


Maxine bottom, Bonnie and Jim Ed Brown top

Three Bells in particular - reading this thread brings me back to being a kid and hearing it on the radio.

Thanks for the Photographs guys. I was in my late teens when they came on the scene. They were on every radio station I could tune in. What Beautiful music and Harmony they made. R.I.P. "The Browns". J.R.

Kenny,
I really can't say.
My 1st guess would be Lloyd Green but chances are that's wrong.
