I am a long time fan and record collector, semi-retired school teacher,
and did I mention, record collector? My name is Karl Elder and I live in
Norfolk, Virginia.

Last year I ran across a fabulous Decca EP of Carl Dobkins, Jr. which I can find
absolutely no information about. It's Decca catalog number is 38082 with matrix s 4234 and s 4235. Side 1: (1) Lucy Devil (2) (There's A Little Song A-Singing) In My
Heart. Side 2: (1) My Pledge To You (2) Three Little Peggies

I assume it was recorded in 1960-'61, but as I mentioned, I can find no
information on it. I purchased it at a yard sale which contained many DJ
copies, but this is in no way that I can see a promotional or DJ copy. I can
not find it listed on any of the usual catalogs, or internet sites, including
Carl's own! So, what's up? If this a counterfeit (doesn't appear to be-and I
can
not imagine why anyone would counterfeit this particular record) I would
imagine Carl would personally want this record added to any discography,
everywhere possible, not to mention receive any royalties, recognition or
whatever that he justly deserves! If I have a copy, certainly someone else has
a copy, and he should be getting his props for it!
Thanks so much. Karl Elder

Are you certain that is "Lucy Devil", and not "Lucky Devil"?

I notice that you have asked the same question at the 45cat forums. Why not add your EP information at that web site?

Thanks for your response. Of course it is Lucky Devil and not Lucy Devil. I'm old and decrepit, what can I say. I'll look into you suggestion. Thanks a bunch. Karl
