Am so sorry to hear of mr. King passing away. My husband and I so enoyed his music way back when we were dating and listening to
Wolverton
Mountain. Thanks forever for the memories.

I just read about the death of Claude King and couldn't help but shed some tears. I never had the pleasure of meeting him, but his music will always live in my heart. My story begins when I was a very shy junior with a secret crush on a popular senior named Clifton. He was a year older and we barely knew each other, and I really didn't think he had ever given much notice to me. But while I was talking with a group of girls at our 1962 Junior/Senior Prom, Clifton walked over and asked me for a dance. I was thrilled when he asked, then I became very nervous when a new song began to play that I had never before heard. He told me it was "Wolverton Mountain" and confessed that he had asked the DJ to play it because it was his favorite song. Clifton and I married the following year and we had four beautiful daughters of our own and spent 48 wonderful years together before cancer took him from me in 2010. But we always loved Claude King's music because he was the one who sang our song. God bless you my dear friend; and I hope you enjoy meeting my Clifton.
