Guido D'Amico - Jimmy Boy/I'm In Love With You (1959)

We're going to reach waaaay back with a record that's not really Stampede-related, but... well, you know us. We're okay with stretching things a bit (or a lot!). 

Guido D'Amico was born in Fernie, but spent most of his life in Nordegg and Eckville. Known as The Italian Cowboy, he had a regular radio show on Red Deer's CKRD, and played throughout central and southern Alberta. Music was a sideline for D'Amico, who worked for the Coca Cola company and later ran a hotel in Eckville. Upon his retirement, he returned to music before he passed away in 2008

The two rockabilly-leaning songs on this dusty little 7" has also featured on his Treasures Untold compilation LP put out thru Doug Wong Music in 1980... but we might be getting ahead of ourselves. All of our DWM LPs are patiently waiting for their day...

For now, you can get D'Amico's singular single here.
