Brown describes himself as "consistent". The veteran showman has a consistent string of hit records. Special requests for songs which Brown made into hits are called out at personal ap- pearances. The Arkansas native responds with "the likes of Pop-A-Top Again, Love of the Common People, Morning, The Old Lamp- lighter, Scarlet Ribbons and the country version of an old French classic, The Three Bells." Brown's star continues to shine with two straight num- ber one records in a row with a duet partner Helen Corn- elius. Helen discovered her own formula for success by writ. ing it herself. In less than four years she was signed as s songwriter for Dutchess Music, a division of MCA records. By 1972, she had over 150 songs published. Two of these were publishea for Columbia "Teedle Dee Dee" and "Little Sugar Plum." Miss Cornelius' success came about when other vocalists, mostly fe- -male, recorded her songs.
