[This is my solution to both fixing all the unavailable files on the blog and keeping the comments ya'll were nice enough to post the first time around. It's not just that the links are broken, Divshare actually lost the files. So, I'm gonna re-post the missing songs by each artist as they come up. At least with mediafire it's an easy thing to re-do links as they expire.]
Possibly the most auspicious debut recording ever. Too bad no one listened.
I forget how many 45's Tony Owens recorded altogether, but the number is on the small side. Only one was picked up by a major label after it started to make waves in New Orleans. That single, Confessin' A Feeling/ Gotta Get My Baby Back Home, was a major national hit in 1970...spending a month on the charts and as I recall, going to no. 2 at one point.
It was Tony Owens' only hit, which is a very serious shame.
[The info in this post is misleading. Tony Owens "big" hit wasn't nearly as big as I thought. However, I have it on very good authority that "Confessing A Feeling/Gotta Get My Baby Back Home" was a huge seller throughout the South and a genuine monster in New Orleans.]
