Ray Sharpe was born in Fort Worth, Texas on the 8th of February 1938. He is a singer / guitarist who's recording career started when songwriter / singer / producer Lee Hazelwood took him under his wing which resulted in the release of the 45 "That's the Way I Feel / Oh, My Baby's Gone" (Hamilton 50002) in 1958. The disc flopped, but his (August?) 1959 single "Linda Lu / Monkey's Uncle" (Jamie 1128) was a hit, featuring Duane Eddy on guitar, another artist that Hazelwood produced.
