Layng Martine, Jr. – Hired Killer (1969)

Scroll down to content

A video of a song recorded by Margo Guryan and David A. Rosner in Muscle Shoals, Alabama in 1969 with writer/artist Layng Martine, Jr. Never previously released because the label was fearful of the ending due to recent terrorist explosions in NYC. Bonus info: In 1977, Layng’s “Way Down” became a gold single for Elvis Presley and was at #1 on the day that Elvis died.
