Country bopper on a Hamilton label owned by J.D. Jarvis (1924-).

J.D. (John Dill) Jarvis was born in Clay County, Kentucky, but wound up in Hamilton, Ohio, where he became the foremost exponent of bluegrass gospel music in southwestern Ohio. He began recording in the early 1960s on the Ark label in Cincinnati, where his songwriting ability and primitive vocal style made him a favorite with many transplanted Appalachian people. Some of his best known songs are “Take Your Shoes Off, Moses,” “I Am the Man, Thomas,” and “The Hyden Miners’ Tragedy.”
J.D. Jarvis had at least two singles issued on his own Nation Wide label (Rite account number 5999) :

36579 ~ The Sweetest Song I Know
36580 ~ I'll Fly Away

38419 ~ A Glimpse Of Home
38420 ~ Mother's Roses
