EDDIE DEAN - The Discography
When I first published this discography
20 years ago, it screamed for completion because piecing together a recording career which spans almost six decades is indeed no easy task to handle ! I'm very grateful to DAVE SAX, BIG AL TURNER and especially, MIKE PITTS and JERRY KENDALL for having filled in a great many blanks over the years.
Also, thanks to
MAUREEN COLSON, CARY GINELL, WALT ROGERS, KEN SMITH and PETER SCHOW.
