  1. Jimmy Morris, aka Jimmie Lee Morris and Jimmy Lee Morris had a 45 on Lee Hazelwood's LHI Records around 1970, it was recorded in Hollywood in 1969.

    The Atlantic sessions were produced by Earl Ball.

    Although he left the deal before Nashville Atlantic shut their operations in 1974, the Atlantic Masters were sold to Jimmy, who had them remastered and issued as a private press LP in the 70s that he sold from the bandstand.
    A very rare record.

  2. Does anyone know the whereabouts of Jimmy Lee Morris as of today?

  3. He's my uncle. I haven't seen him in a long time. I think he's in Arizona now.
