Say, is anyone here familiar with Del Reeves?

Now playing at The Roadhouse, Sirius Ch. 62: "You're always welcome, don't forget to drop in, old Good Time Charleyyyyy's, anytime ya can..."
The only song I'd ever heard from Del Reeves before I got Sirius was "Girl on the Billboard," one that I really liked but couldn't find anywhere. Turns out all his original music's out of print now and the only thing I've been able to find is a bunch of re-recorded versions of his hit songs. Sucks too, because the originals were great, including this one. (George Strait's version of this song from The Road Less Traveled is a real barn-burner too, I tell ya...)
