Les Vogt (Vote) was an early Vancouver B.C. rockabilly/rock & roll recording artist who had a few local hits in the late 1950's and early 1960's such as the rockabilly sizzler "Rock Me Baby" released as by "The Prowlers" on Vancouver's Aragon Record label which featured Les Vogt on lead vocals. Les Vogt also released some solo material in the early 1960's such as "The Blamers / Moon Rocketin" which reached # 1 on the Vancouver charts in 1960 and also the rockabilly classic "I'm Gonna Sit Right Down And Cry (Over You)" (which is a great cover of Elvis' 1956 release), and was backed with "Teenager's Dream" on Les Vogt's own Jaguar Record label and reached # 12 on the local charts.

"Preacher Boy" was written by a local jazz musician named Al Parker who wrote under the pseudonym "Sipson P. Kloop and is a melodic, lively folk rocker with banjo, bass, drums with male background vocalists and smooth vocals from Les Vogt.

"River Flowin Home" was also written by local jazz musician Al Parker and is a melodic mid-tempo folk number with good musical accompaniment, male background vocalists and nice vocals from Les Vogt and a mellow banjo/piano solo.

Les Vogt would later become one of Vancouver's biggest concert promoters, and with his partner Buddy Knox owned and operated the Grooveyard and Purple Steer nightclubs in the 1960's.
