Much like his contemporary, C.W. McCall, Cledus Maggard was a made up
character concocted by an advertising executive. While working at
Leslie Advertising in Grenville, SC, Jay Huguely recorded a
CB/trucking novelty song called, "The White Knight". Sure enough,
during the CB happy mid-70s, it became a huge hit. Of course, an album
was hastily recorded while the iron was hot, and so, here you go!
This one goes out to Paul H., who commented to a post I did about a
year and a half ago about an album called "All Ears". Paul
suggested I try to find a copy of the Cledus Maggard album and rip it
so he could make a CB CD. I thought I'd never heard of it, but made a
mental note to look for it. One day while looking through the dismal
selection of used vinyl at Benway Records in Santa Monica, I found
this dog-eared copy.
When I listened to "The White Knight" I realized I had heard it
before. For one thing, I think Tony has a copy of the single and had
played it late at night when we were drunk enough for it to be
hilarious, but I think I remember it from back the day too.
So anyway, like we always say, you can never have too much CB music.
Or at least until now...
