I lived two streets from kendall. Very down to earth and kind. He played several songs he wrote and was never recorded. Very talented. I worked for a non profit organization and he and his wife put on a show for free. Am proud to have known him and his wife.

George Smith, that played fiddle with Ralph Raulerson, was my father. Thanks for posting these songs.

So, How'd You Find Me?:  I found you quite a few years ago. I was looking for songs about the school bus accident that happened in Floyd County Ky.
Web Site:  I sent you a song about the accident.

I was so glad to find you again! I have been ill and haven’t been on here for quite some time and I was going through some old mail and found a letter from you. I was so glad to see your site up and running! I hope you have been well and life is being good to you. Take care, Jo

Hi there! Was entering my albums into and came upon my Shell Factory Blues album. Love the song. Thanks for this post about him and I'm sorry to hear he died way too early. Was that a local accident that took his life? My copy of the album is signed, Best Wishes Gary and My Very Best, Jimmy Byrd. There's no reason to think this is not a real authentic autograph.

Very cool to know the history,

Thanks again,

So, How'd You Find Me?:  Googled Johnny Noles

Hello, born in Fort Myers. My mom was a frequent visitor to the Big Still. I was going through some belongings and found a Johnny Noles album she had that he signed for her. It must have been prior to the band referenced here as none of the band members listed here match the ones listed on the back of the album. Was just looking up some facts to be able to discuss Mr. Noles. Thanks for the information!
