Ferlin Husky topped the country and western charts for decades beginning in the 1950s. But that has nothing to do with the song below, the narcotic noir that is “Living In A Trance.” The second to last track found on Husky’s 1961 lp, Walkin’ And Hummin’, the song feels like it is somehow being exorcised. Floating, gauzy and strung out, Husky’s delivery is something akin to a half-remembered dream emitted from a ghost radio tower. Music row, this is not.
