Weeki Wachee Record 1963

This is a 7 inch, 45 rpm record with two songs – one connected with Weeki Wachee and one with Silver Springs. The record is from 1963.

At Weeki Wachee was composed by H. Lyon and performed by Marlin & the Mermaids who might have been studio musicians in Nashville or possibly New York City.

The Ballad of Silver Springs was composed by Will McLean (1919–1990, thought of as the “Father of Florida Folk”) and was also performed by Marlin & the Mermaids.

The images on the videos are from my collection and all will eventually be showcased on Stingray Tom’s Florida.
