The two songs on this single were written by Murry between 1952 and 1955. Each track originally released by The Bachelors (an L.A. trio) featuring Jimmy Haskell on accordion and vocals. This time around, Producer Tony Maimone (Pere Ubu, Bob Mould) and Arranger Joe McGinty (Psychedelic Furs, Ronnie Spector) led George and members of The Losers Lounge (NYC tribute collective) through Happy, Happy Holiday, and Producer Peter Katis (Kurt Vile, The National) led George and a local hootenanny group in reimagining Te-e-e-ex-as. For this second release in the George Faulkner Sings Murry Wilson series, Bolt Records is thrilled to get new versions of these two compositions out in circulation again, over 60 years since their original debut, and to have worked with artist Peter Bagge again.
