Dave, I'm not about to tell you which version you heard or which record your mom bought.

Just some data for consideration-

The Columbia Davy Crockett I heard was from the TV show. It had Fess in a dual lead with somebody-possibly Strother Martin. Farewell was NOT the flip. This would not be my first choice.

fwiw, the only 3 Davy Crockett/Farewell To The Mountains 78s I've seen or heard so far (there could well be others) were-2 by Bill Hays, one on London and one on Cadence.

Theres also a UK Capitol 78 by Tennessee Ernie Ford from that timeframe with both songs.

Somebody alleges a 78 with Fess singing both songs. No label identified.

some Fess records
