Around 1948 Nick Lucas recorded eight songs for a record producer named Huckster who promptly sold them to Capitol. The only one of the Huckster's to be released by Capitol was "Tiptoe/Side by Side" which Nick said was a good seller. As a result he made two more 78s for Capitol, but the other six Hucksters sides remain unissued.
It is interesting to note here that Nick Lucas did his own vocal harmonies, accompanying himself, on the "Side By Side" recording, making it among the first multi-track recordings in history.
Backed on these Hucksters recordings by Andy Phillips' Quintette, Nick, as always, plays his acoustic Nick Lucas Gibson guitar on these sides and presents a fine jazzy guitar solo containing interesting bass lines on "Tiptoe Through The Tulips".
