Note: Roy Buchanan’s first confirmed studio session was with the female rock’n’roll singer Alis Lesley. Apparently these particular songs also ended up to Lesley’s only 45rpm release on Era Records. Here is a quote from the book “Roy Buchanan – American Axe”: They took us into a studio on Vine Street in Hollywood in the Capitol Records building, a big round building that looks like a stack of 45s,” Spencer [Dryden] said. “This was a building where great records had been made. Frank Sinatra recorded there, Stan Kenton – idols of mine. Alys is wearing ‘petal-pushers,’ a pony-tail and little bows and a little sweater or blouse, with strange little shoes. She had maybe two tunes she could sing. We laid down the two tunes and I have no idea whatever happened to them.” This bizarre episode would be wholly unimportant, other than it represents Buchanan’s first studio experience.

In addition to Swan 4096, Roy Buchanan may also play on other Freddy Cannon’s early 1960’s Swan recordings.

According to Joey Welz, Roy Buchanan is not the harmonica player on Link Wray’s 1968-1969 singles “Rumble ’68” / “Blow Your Mind” (Heavy H-101) and “Rumble ’69” / “Mind Blower” (Mr. G G 820), as sometimes stated.
