The rock and roll website lacks this entry, okay, all the data can probably NOT be collected perfectly, but they should have it. "Sleepwalk" was a number 1 r'n'r in the '50s. Jeff Beck plays it... and...

"Prominently featuring steel guitar, the song was recorded at Trinity Music in Manhattan, New York City. "Sleep Walk" entered Billboard's Top 40 on August 17, 1959. It rose to the number 1 position for the last two weeks in September[3] and remained in the Top 40 until November 9. "Sleep Walk" also reached number 4 on the R&B chart.[4]"

Birthdays include folk/blues legend Rev. Gary Davis, who became ordained in 1937 and who went from there to include
gospel heavily in his music; later in his life he became a teacher as well, often re-recording his vintages for the benefit
of his students who included (especially) Jorma Kaukonen of Jefferson Airplane/Hot Tuna . . .

Rev. Gary Davis, "Death Don't Have No Mercy"

Rev. Gary Davis, "Goin' to Sit Down on the Banks of the River"

Wrapping up April,  birthday boys, Glen Campbell, April 22nd and Billy Mize, April 29th, they both did that song "Lights Of Albuquerque"... it still perplexes me what the song says...

I can see the lights of Albuquerque

He don't stand a chance I heard the medic say
Then close by my side, I heard the chaplain pray
Then just like a miracle, the pain faded fast away
And I swore once more that I could see
 the lights of Albuquerque

There's nothing real at all since I left New Mexico
And the warmth of her love
The kind a man must know
There were tears in her angel eyes, I didn't want to go
But a man must stand so there will always be
the lights of Albuquerque


The lights of Albuquerque
jewels in the desert night
They watch over all I love
So while they burn, my world's alright

The chaplain's prayer comes back
And soothes the pain I feel
While through my torture mind
Peace begins to still

Is it the drug they poured in me
Or can dying be this real
If I die, don't cry just light for me
 the lights of  Albuquerque

Everybody Knows This Is Nowhere
