You may not know his name, but you know his songs. Truly one of the most prolific composers of the rock era, JOHN D. LOUDERMILK was born this day in 1934. He often recorded his own songs - sometimes as Johnny Dee, and frequently as John D. Loudermilk, but his songs recorded by others became his success story. Among his most famous titles are "Tobacco Road," "Indian Reservation," "Talk Back Tremblin' Lips," "Norman," "Sad Movies," "Waterloo," "A Rose and a Baby Ruth," and "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye." Enjoy the latter, a Top Ten hit for the Casinos by clicking below.
