The Battle of DAVY CROCKETT, Round 2: Fess Parker vs. Mac Wiseman

Two more of the many BODC releases of 1955. Fess Parker recorded the ballad at least four times, but this was the first released. His was the second biggest seller of the year, following Bill Hayes'. We'll hear Fess's other efforts further down the road. Mac Wiseman recorded another (and much smoother) version later, too.

It's a draw. I love Parker, but Wiseman has been a favorite of mine for years.

Always been partial to Fess Parker. I met him at a state fair once. Tall dude
