SUN SOUNDS: “UBANGI STOMP”- WARREN SMITH

SMITH, WARREN - Ubangi Stomp: Very Best Of Warren Smith - Amazon.com Music

Sun Sounds- “Ubangi Stomp”- Warren Smith. While Warren Smith’s “Ubangi Stomp” didn’t hit the charts hit became a rockabilly standard. Like Johnny Cash- Smith grew up on a farm found is way to Sun after a stint in the U.S. Air Force. “Ubangi Stomp” was his second single release on Sun Records. Sam Phillips would say of Smith “probably the best pure singer for country music I’ve ever heard.. he had a pure county voice and an innate feel for the country ballad.” Like with Billy Lee Riley, Mr. Phillips regretted that he didn’t get more out of Warren Smith’s talent. Warren Smith died in 1947 of a heart attack at the age of 47.
