“Pick Up On This, Kid”
Word # 3456
From the liner notes:
“I was a stinkin’, filthy, no-good junkie, twisted out of my mind. Up tight. Bound by dope. A chronic addict. A chronic criminal. A chronic liar. There was no way out. The doctors said it. The narcos said it. My family said it.
It was my sister’s boyfriend who gave me my first taste of marijuana. I was not quite ten at the time… I was out of my mind! I never forgot the beating I got when my father found out. Man! I was sick!… Kept throwing up, falling down, getting up… laughing all the time my father was hitting me.”
John was a member of the Addicts.

“Roger….. Sings High”
Benson Sound #186
Just thought I would let you know that I found this site by typing in my Dad’s name, Roger Bankson, and found his first album ever recorded on your website. Yes, my father is still performing at age 63. And he still sings as high as ever. (Note-wise, that is). He as recorded over 25 albums and is getting ready to put out his newest CD this next year.
