Arthur Thomas sang “Hey Mabel (Let’s Have Another)” b/w “Poker Game of Life” for Raven Records in Nashville, Tennessee. Through the intervention of  noted country singer and songwriter Merle Kilgore, who brought the record to the attention of Jamie Records, Bob Rogers of Raven Records made a deal for it for the Philadelphia based label to take it over. The rollicking drinking songs are of a piece with another song Arthur Thomas sang that never came out on Jamie, “Live Fast, Drink Hard, Die Young,” but one other song was also in the can, “Separate Tables, Separate Chairs,” a deep-in-your-cups version of another country music theme based on regret and results the day after the night before.

Arthur Thomas later surfaced on the Alabama-based Capa label with the release in 1965 of  “Bee Sticks To Honey” b/w “That Didn’t Hurt Much (Did It).”
