    “Here I Am Drunk Again” became one of my favorite Moe Bandy songs from the moment i first heard it. His Columbia single missed the top ten by only one notch – it peaked at #11 in September 1976. That song served as the title track of Moe’s 2nd Columbia album. It was one of several “lost” Moe Bandy singles never re-issued on a “best of” or “greatest hits” LP or CD. It did receive a brief CD release on a Sony various artists budget compilation in 1993.

    The song was first released on the Dollie label in 1960 by Clyde Beavers. Decca saw potential and picked up that master. His Decca single peaked at #13 in late 1960. Here’s the original version from a rather worn single. Beavers did it at a slower tempo.

      Revisiting my Moe Bandy vinyl collection last night i realized that I had overlooked Moe’s 1981 Columbia “Encore” compilation that did include “Here I Am Drunk Again.” Unfortunately that album was not reissued on CD.
