Like many country singers in the late 1950s Harvey Chambers decided to try his hand at rock n roll music and In 1957 he recorded his most famous songs, "New Way Rockin" & "Girl In Red Blue Jeans" on Goldband records in Lake Charles, Louisiana. On these songs Chambers is playing lead guitar and singing as Hopeless Homer.
