  8. Hi,

    Thanks for this, much appreciated.
    You are wrong about Joseph being his only recording.
    Joey Long is the name he became known as.
    2 albums were released by him 1978
    The Rains Came & Flyin High.

    His first record released at 1958 under the name CURLEY LONG
    ("Blues Just Walked In / Don't Lock My Love Outside" Azalea Records 108).
    Released several recordings under Huey's publishing company (Crazy Cajun Records) .
    Joey also played guitar on Barbara Lynn's "You'll Lose A Good Thing",
    and Clarence Frogman Henry's Ain't Got No Home

    Some early songs also exist as 45's at "Tear Drop" and "Tribe Records" (R&B & Soul style).
    Long appeared (usually without credits) on records for DOUG SHAM, BARBARA LYNN,
    among others.

    V.A. - The Greatest Hits from the Soul of Texas (WAND-677).
    An early sexy cover compilation of texas artists .
    Joey Long appear with two songs
    "I'm glad for your sake" and "I Cried". From 1966
