This 7 Inch, 45 RPM single (clear green commercial pressing) is notable for being the world's first ever 7 Inch, 45 RPM commercial title pressed and one of the first singles released in the US on March 31st, 1949. Preceding this release was a preview 'Demonstration Record' titled 'Whirl Away' which could be said to the first ever 45 release pressed, as it was a preview demo introducing the new 7 Inch, 45 RPM format. A sample of the Eddy Arnold recording is featured on the 'Whirl Away' demo.

Second pressings of this recording have green labels on black vinyl. Both tracks reached number one on the US Country Chart. "Cottonseed Clark" was the host of several country & western, musical variety shows on radio in the 1940s. Including "Hollywood Barn Dance" and "All Star Western Theater. He also was together with Eddie Kirk at the "California Hayride". He appeared in the film "Smokey River Serenade" in 1947. He recorded an album in 1961 called "Homespun Philosophy" (Fox 3040/SFX 3040).
