Sleepy LaBeef
A Rockin’ Decade

A Rockin’ Decade




The best of the rocker’s 1970s recordings for Sun International

Born Thomas Paulsley LaBeff in Arkansas, Sleepy - so-called because of a lazy eye - has maintained a career as a Rockabilly and Country musician since the mid-1950s.  At the age of eighteen he was performing Gospel music on the radio in Houston, TX, before recording in a Rock'n'Roll vein for Pappy Daily's Starday imprint. In the mid-60s Sleepy relocated to Nashville where he developed a solid Country style and registered several hits including 'Every Day' for Columbia and 'Blackland Farmer' (US No.67) for Shelby Singleton's Plantation label.  Although his popularity waned at home, Sleepy enjoyed a career filip in Europe via his association with the Sun label during the 70s. He has continued to record throughout and in April 2013 a documentary/concert DVD/CD Sleepy Rides Again was released on Earwave Records.
