Planet Named Desire

Billy Mize

Planet Named Desire

By the late 1950s Billy Mize was bouncing between Bakersfield and Los Angeles, where he and Cliff Crofford appeared as cast members on the popular 'Town Hall Party' television show on Saturday nights. Soon after, Mize began appearing on 'Cal's Corral,' a Sunday afternoon country music TV program hosted and sponsored by Southern California car dealer Cal Worthington at the Huntington Park Ballroom.

When 'Cal's Corral' released a promotional LP on red vinyl in the early 1960s, several of the show's regulars were asked to contribute recordings. Billy Mize submitted a weird reverb-drenched slice of rockabilly eccentricity called Planet Named Desire that he'd recorded a few years earlier. "We did that at Louie Talley's studio that he built behind his house in Bakersfield," Billy recalled. Unlike anything else Mize recorded in his career, the song is a particularly enlightening shapshot of how far from the ranch the Bakersfield cowboys were willing to drift in pursuit of alternate sounds.
