Swap Meet-78 rpm

The only record I bought at the swap meet this week was a 78 on Capital Records Dead End Street/California Waltz-Cliffie Stone.
Dead End Street was written by Stan Freberg and Cliffie Stone. Thge vocal on California Waltz is by Billy Strange
Cliffie Stone also played with Tennessee Ernie Ford.
I met Cliffie Stone once sometimes in the late 1980's. It was at a garage sale. I bought some Cliffie Stone 45s, and he told me I was buying some of his records.. I said ok, then he elaborated saying he was Cliffie Stone, then proceeding to tell me his musical history.
