• Bill NETTLES & His Dixie Blue Boys - Hadacol Boogie

In 1945 Bill was one of the featured performers on the newly launched Louisiana Hayride (in its original format prior to its relocation to the municipal auditorium some three years later) which broadcast twice weekly over KWKH from Shreveport. That same year Bill inked a recording deal with RCA, however, it was to be a short lived deal as Bill was unhappy with RCA and quit the label after just one session.It was with MERCURY that he scored the nearest he ever got to a "Hit" record. In 1949 he recorded "Hadacol Boogie" a tongue in cheek "testament" to the dubious powers of Dudley LeBlanc’s patent "medicine" Hadacol. It was definitely the right song at the right time. Bill’s original prompted a few "cover" versions, that by veteran perform Jessie Rogers for the BLUEBIRD label significantly outsold Bill’s own MERCURY recording.Spells with the TRUMPET, and STARDAY label followed in the Fifties, before Bill "Retired" in the late Fifties, although it was to be a short retirement because he set up his own NETT label in the mid sixties, at the age of 62, and for whom he record a half dozen sides. Bill’s career in Country music panned three decades. Beside his catalogue of recorded songs, Bill also had an impressive portfolio of songs, some three hundred, that he had written, songs which had been recorded by the likes of Gene Autry, Roy Acuff, Al Dexter, The Stanley Brothers, Faron Young, Johnnie & Jack, and Jimmie Davis, to name just a few.
