Walk On By b/w Hey Miss Ruby
MGM #K 14408 Released 1972
This is a cash-in Conway 45 from the early ‘70s and my copy has a printing error with the “Hey Miss Ruby” label mistakenly on both sides.

But the record itself plays both sides with “Hey Miss Ruby” being an uptempo bopper from 1959 and the “a-side” being “Walk On By” but not the Dionne song, it’s a cover of Leroy Van Dyke’s 1961 country classic that the MGM vault keepers thought might sell a few copies considering CT’s monstrous success with Decca/MCA at the time.

Anyway you look at it, you get a chance to hear Conway’s voice.
