Paul & Archie


[photos courtesy of Discogs, since I don't have the LP cover.]

Paul Shultz and Archie Heikkila.  

I found this LP in another LP cover which was mismatched.  Didn't notice it until I got home.  Easy mistake since the album cover it was found in was also by Paul & Archie.  I believe they made two LPs in the late 1970s.  Will post the other LP "Golden Country Memories" disc as soon as I find it.

I like the sound of these guys.  Reminds me a lot of Jimmie Driftwood for some reason.

An obituary search found one Archie Heikkila who was born near Wadena, Minnesota in 1921, and died in 2014 in Floodwood, Minnesota.  Could be him, who knows.  If anyone has more info, please leave a comment.

Mary Beth


This post is in response to an email request by the owner of the Flame Cafe's grandson, Marc.  Abe Percansky was the owner's real name, but he was also known as Abe Perkins (see bside label credit).

Marc writes:
"I grew up in the Flame the 1st 12 years of my life. I am 51 years old. It closed in 1978. It sure was a one of a kind place! Folks are still talking about it nearly 40 years after it closed."

Marc hopes to someday devote a website to the Flame Cafe and it's long storied past.  Here are a few photos for now:
