'What a great way of honoring one of Country/Western's greatest lyricist and vocalist! I was very disappointed when Pee Wee King was put into the Country Music Hall of Fame without Redd because they were a team and as such should have been put in together.
I first fell in love with his vice when I was a teenager back in the early 50's, and I'm happy to say that my wife also feels the same as I do. It is difficult for me to say which of his compositions I love the most, but if forced I'll have to say that 'Walk Me by the River,' which Bing Crosby recorded back in the first part of the 50's, is perhaps my favorite of all of the songs for which he supplied lyrics. As for vocals it would have to be, 'Backwards, Turn Backward' (even though he didn't write that one.)
In any case he'll always be one of the all-time greats that, like so many others, have been overlooked. Thanks again for this great website in tribute to your dad.' (Roy Bodden/Tampa, FL)
