Leroy Thompson
and The Swingtime Play Boys

About The Artist

It was early 1953 and Leroy Thompson and the Swingtime Playboys had just recorded four new sides with the SRC Recording Company and were waiting for their release for the fans in the Northwest to hear.

Those recordings included group members Leroy Thompson and Kitty McKann doing "Swingtime Boogie" and "My Paradise" while the other recording included a couple of numbers by the trio. ONe was "I'm Gonna Go Live With Nature" and the other was "Little Green Hills Of Tennessee". Leroy and his band were working engagements throughout the Washington, Montana and Idaho areas and were said to be working on a southern tour.
