Colonel Lou Aka Lou Millet - Johnny Reb 1960s Conservative Records

It is June 27, 2015.  Some fools have planned to use this day for burn the Confederate Battle Flag parties.  I am not going to do that.  Instead I am going to pay tribute to Johnny Reb.  In this video, I have a song for you called "Johnny Reb" by Colonel Lou.  Colonel Lou is believed to be Lou Millet.  Lou Millet was born in Louisiana in 1926.  I could not find a death date for him so he may still be alive.  I have two copies of this record.  I would really love to get one of these autographed by Lou.  This record was pressed around the mid 1960s on the Conservative Records label (catalog number: 140).  I am going to play the record on an Audiotronics 304E turntable from the 1970s.  The song is very fitting for today because it was cold and rainy.  This is a great song.  I can play this record over and over again.  Thank you for watching and honoring Johnny Reb.
