Radio Mans fave with Roy Head


Treat Her Right

Roy Kent Head was born in Three Rivers, Texas and achieved fame as a member of musical group The Traits from San Marcos. The group’s sponsor landed their first recording contract in 1958 with TNT Music in San Antonio while they were still in high school. The Traits performed and recorded in the rockabillyrock and roll and rhythm and blues musical styles from the late 1950s to the mid-1960s. Though landing several regional hits between 1959 and 1963 on both the TNT and Renner Record labels, Head is best known for the 1965 blue-eyed soul international hit, “Treat Her Right“, recorded by Roy Head and the Traits. After going solo, Head landed several hits on the country and western charts between 1975 and 1985. During his career of some 50 years, he has performed in several different musical genres and used a somewhat confusing array of record labels, some too small to provide for national marketing and distribution. Roy Head and the Traits held reunions in 2001 and 2007 and were inducted into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame in 2007.

  1. Another performer that I have no memory of and another song that I didn’t recollect until I heard it but even then it’s more a “I think I recall that tune.”

    Treat Her Right reached #2 in 1965 and Yesterday was the song that kept it out of first place.

    In Yesterday Paul sings

    Why she had to go
    I don’t know, she wouldn’t say

    Clearly if he had been listening to Treat Her Right he would have known

    To start real slow
    Squeeze her real gentle
    Tell her you love her
    And you’ll be glad every night
    Now that you treated her right

    Sex Ed on the radio. lol
