  • Rainwater Marvin - Hot And Cold (10″LP & CD) (10``LP)

    32,50

    1 vinyl 10”LP with 12-page booklet, bonus CD with additional recordings, 12 tracks (LP), 28 tracks (CD). Total playing time 28 min. (LP), 70 min. (CD)

    Bear Family Records® presents a 10” vinyl LP with the greatest recordings by one of the most exciting country and rockabilly artists ever: Marvin Rainwater.
    The career of this extraordinary musician, who seemingly effortlessly combined country and rockabilly elements to create his very own style, began in 1955.
    In the wake of the European rockabilly revival beginning in the late 1970s, Marvin Rainwater enjoyed a much-acclaimed comeback on festival stages worldwide.
    This album gives us his very best recordings, and the bonus CD holds more treasures for us, classics alongside rather lesser-known numbers.
    Enthralling liner notes by Roland Heinrich Rumtreiber and a deliberately sparse technical mastering treatment of these historic recordings round off the concept – expect first-class songwriting, a first-class performance and … something completely different.

    Marvin Rainwater was one of the most exciting performers in country music and a revered hero of the European rockabilly revival of the late 70s and early 80s. Restless covered Mr. Blues, and The Blue Cats recorded Hot and Cold; Whole Lotta Woman was a regular on rockabilly radio shows and at record hops.

    Marvin Rainwater was his own man, with his own voice, and highly versatile. His incredible vocal range offered a bottom-end baritone for sincere songs, a snarling menace in a rockabilly arrangement, or hit the high-registers to serve as an ersatz-Hank and out-yodel the best of them. Rainwater delivered his songs with heart and soul.

    This compilation offers some hot rockabilly, hillbilly bop, and Rainwater’s very own brand of mid-tempo story songs that bridge the gap between pop, country, and rock and roll.

    Among Rainwater musts, like I Dig You Baby, Hot and Cold, and Mr. Blues, the 10″ comes up with lesser compiled material like the mountain music inspired Hard Luck Blues or the big-city-main-stream-r&b-ballroom smash Dance Me Daddy, iced with typical Rainwater pop-coating.

    This 10″ Bear Family Records® vinyl release further underlines his versatility via hillbilly pop a la Baby, Baby Don’t Go that would have served the Everly Brothers well and sounds like it could have been produced by Lee Hazlewood.

    The authentic Rainwater sound is presented in full boom by (There’s Always) A Need for Love, My Brand of Blues, and Love Me Baby (Like There’s No Tomorrow). Marvin also tips his hat to Johnny Cash with It Wasn’t Enough.

    The bonus CD fleshes out all aspects mentioned above and excels with the inclusion of rare stuff like the 1956 Ozark Jubilee radio recording of Mr. Blues, two gems recorded with Link Wray and his Wraymen for Warwick, and a must-spin for every rockabilly party – Marvin’s version of Gamblin’ Man (Roving Gambler).

    During a time when record companies patterned every upcoming artist after Hank Williams, Marvin Rainwater stood out. He was different – some thought him to be odd. His uniqueness might have been an obstacle back in the ‘50s and ‘60s.

    But, for today’s listener, Marvin Rainwater is something to discover and cherish. He ranks among the best of the immediate post-Hank performers. You are in for top songwriting, top delivery, and something completely different.

  • Heinz - The Heinz Sessions Vol.1 – Joe Meek’s Tea Chest Tapes (10``LP)

    20,00

    THE SECOND RELEASE FROM JOE MEEK’S LEGENDARY TEA CHEST TAPES!

    PREVIOUSLY UNHEARD VERSIONS, OUTTAKES AND DEMOS!

    ALL IN SUPERB, PREVIOUSLY UNHEARD CLARITY, TAKEN DIRECTLY FROM JOE MEEK’S OWN TAPE ARCHIVE.

    TAPE WORK AND MASTERING BY MARTIN NICHOLS.

    SLEEVENOTES BY ROB BRADFORD, EDITOR OF THE JOE MEEK SOCIETY’S ‘THUNDERBOLT’ MAGAZINE.

    Having been part of The Tornados (and their smash hit ‘Telstar’), Heinz was quickly singled out for solo stardom by Joe Meek, whose eye he had caught. Tailored by Meek in the classic pop impresario tradition, usually with material written expressly for him, Heinz and his remarkable bouffant blond hairstyle set out to take the world by storm in 1963, just as Beatlemania changed the rules entirely.

    We present selected highlights from the many hours of recording Joe Meek dedicated to his protégé between 1963 and 1966, including the hit single ‘Just Like Eddie’ and classic album tracks, alongside the unreleased ‘Voices In The Wind’.

    Featuring early takes, guide tracks and guitar sessions, Side One provides a fascinating insight into the hard work Meek was prepared to invest in his pet project.

    Side Two, on the other hand, takes the listener back to the beginning of the process, with three of Joe Meek’s home demos and a Dave Adams guide track, all of which were later re-recorded by Heinz.

    Hand-picked for their unprecedented degree of insight into Meek’s working processes and his relationship with Heinz, and presented with track-by-track notes from ‘Thunderbolt’ magazine’s Rob Bradford, ‘The Heinz Sessions Vol 1’ is a must-hear for fans of Meek and Heinz, British pop historians and enthusiasts, and anybody with an interest in the evolution of recording techniques and the mysterious alchemy that goes on behind those studio doors.

  • Rainwater Marvin - Tough Top Cat (10``LP)

    20,00

    Info:
    Marvin Rainwater was one of those artists who was somewhere between country and rock’n’roll. And his style was perfectly adaptable to both genres without any problem.
    This album compiles some of his greatest hits in both ways, reflecting just how versatile Marvin could be.
    The country side includes his country top-seller GONNA FIND ME A BLUEBIRD, perhaps the most successful song of Marvin’s career.
    On the other hand, apart from his great rockers like I DIG YOU BABY or WHOLE LOTTA WOMAN, which reached number 1 in the UK, this LP includes some of his earlier rockin’ tunes like HOT AND COLD or the powerful MY BRAND OF BLUES, and also the two tracks he recorded in the early 60’s with Link Wray & his Wraymen, BOO HOO and TOUGH TOP CAT, where you´ll plainly see that Marvin’s voice was perfect to any kind of rock’n’roll.

  • Clark Sanford - Arizona Finest (10``LP)

    20,00

    Info:
    The magic of Arizona rock’n’roll passes through the hands of Lee Hazlewood. This legendary producer, musician and composer, who in the mid-60s became an icon of pop music after achieving the massive success of Nancy Sinatra’s These Boots Are Made For Waking, was like a magnet for any talent that approached him, already from the mid 50’s, when he began to work as DJ on several Arizona radio stations. In those years he became the architect of the Duane Eddy guitar sound, but shortly before he had his first hit with THE FOOL, a song written by Hazlewood and sung by Sandford Clark, with the great Al Casey on guitar.

    THE FOOL was a big hit for Lee Hazlewood and Sanford Clark, which won them the confidence of Dot, but unfortunately, they did not get a follow-up that would consolidate Sanford’s career.

    Despite this, first Clark’s recordings at Dot Records, and then at Jamie, are some of the most personal and haunting rock’n’roll and rockabilly recordings of the second half of the 50s.

    Sanford’s honeyed, velvety voice fit Lee’s compositions like a glove, something that is well reflected in songs like BAD LUCK, STILL AS THE NIGHT or THE CHEAT.

    This LP features 10 fantastic rockers recorded by Sanford and produced by Lee Hazlewood during his tenure with Dot and Jamie, including jivers like LOU BE DOU or the dancefloor winner MODERN ROMANCE, as well as more intimate and personal songs. A selection that shows how unfair the music business can be, overlooking all these jewels and condemning Sanford to the long list of the one hit wonders.

  • Brown Billy - His Rockin’est (10``LP)

    20,00

    Info:
    Billy Brown was already in his thirties when the rock´n’roll big bang of 1956 hit, but his advantage was that he was no newcomer.
    Beginning his musical career as a singer around Virginia’s round-ups, in 1950 Billy signed with Columbia Records, where he remained for three years, recording country and hillbilly, until he left music for the Uncle Sam’s calling.
    His return to music took him first to Decca and then to Stars. Inc, where he would release a single that would make a difference, including on the A-side the song DID WE HAVE A PARTY, a full-fledged response to PARTY that Elvis was promoting in his new film Loving You. At the recording session, Billy was accompanied on guitar by future country star Jerry Reed. There was no more hillbilly in Billy’s music, only rock’n’roll.
    That record took him back to Columbia: the label was madly looking for an answer to RCA’s Elvis, and thought Billy had a chance, so they reissued the record DID WE HAVE A PARTY / IT’S LOVE, giving it good promotion, even leading to Billy appearing on the national TV show American Bandstand.
    During the rest of 1957 and 1958, Billy would do 4 more sessions for Columbia, backed by the entire Nashville A Team at the Owen Bradley Studio. Four more singles would come out of those sessions, always between rock’n’roll and pop, with great songs like RUN’EM OFF, FLIP OUT or NEXT, but the sales didn’t go as far as Columbia intended.
    In 1959, Billy left Columbia, and a year later Billy would release 3 more singles on Republic, moving between country and rock’n’roll. Although the three singles enjoyed a deployment of means in the studio very appropriate to Billy’s style, none of the records had the promotion they deserved, and didn´t succeed.
    This LP recovers Billy Brown’s rockin’est songs, all of them belonging to his period between 1957 and 1961 for Columbia and Republic, authentic rock’n’roll and pop pearls, which until now had not been recovered in a complete album dedicated to this artist.

  • Perkins Carl - Sister Twister 1960-1962 – The Complete Columbia Singles – Vol. 2 (10``LP)

    20,00

    When in 1957 he left Sun Records with his friend Johnny Cash, poor Carl had seen how all his mates were overtaking him, Jerry Lee was beginning to stand out as the wildest star in rock’n’roll, Johnny Cash was energing as one of the biggest names in country music… and while he barely managed to place any of his singles in the country charts.
    So Carl signed with Columbia Records, hoping that a major label would make it easier for his music to succeed. In his first period there, from 1958 to 1962, he recorded some very high-quality songs, most of which were only released as singles.
    This 2 LP series compiles the 11 singles Carl released on Columbia Records during those years.
    In the first volume we find his greatest rock’n’rollers, well reflected with his first single JIVE AFTER FIVE / PINK PEDAL PUSHERS, but also his first firm bets for country with a pop vein, like Y.O.U or JUST FOR YOU, and wonders with a lot of early 60’s Memphis sound, like the wonderful HIGHWAY OF LOVE.
    The second volume compiles the singles released in the period from 60 to 62, in which Carl personally lived one of the hardest stages of his life, his brother Jay died, his band split up and he began an unstoppable drift towards alcoholism. Anyway his recordings kept on the higest level, in those sessions Carl’s sound became more complex, trying to update it playing different styles, sometimes even drifting towards rhythm & blues.
    Despite this, and despite having magnificent songs like LOVEVILLE, or HOLLYWOOD GIRLS, only with his penultimate single SISTER TWISTER / HAMBONE, two songs that had their feet firmly planted in the more rhythm & pop sounds of the new Memphis labels like Hi-Records or Stax, Carl once again managed to enter the charts.
    Columbia did not renew Carl’s contract, and he would sink for the next few years, until 1964, when after signing for Decca he would be acclaimed on his first European tour, being received as one of his main influences by a Liverpool quartet called The Beatles, and collaborating with them on the recording of their fourth LP, where they would record two of his songs on Sun.

    Bear Family Records® presents on this 10inch vinyl LP the Chic Records catalog from a Georgia-based label founded in 1956.
    After about a year it was over again – but a great rockabilly legacy justifies this splendid release.
    Included are the 1957 singles Somebody’s Been Rocking My Baby by Rod Willis and hot rockers by Pat Kelly, Don Johnston, and Cliff Crawford.
    Under license, Chic Records released Freight Train by the British Chas. McDevitt Skiffle Group in the U.S., a financially successful coup.
    Superbly remastered recordings, a stylish LP cover and an in-depth essay on the subject by Chicago expert Bill Dahl in the accompanying booklet round out this fantastic collector’s LP!

    Thomasville, Georgia was a bit out of the way for a record company seeking national exposure to establish its headquarters, but that didn’t stop Chick Thompson from situating his self-named Chic Records there in the summer of 1956.

    The diskery only existed for a little over a year but release several first-rate rockabilly platters—and they’re all aboard ‘Rod Willis & The Chic Connection.’

    Willis was one of Thompson’s premier acts; his 1957 single Somebody’s Been Rocking My Baby, waxed in Nashville with the vaunted A-Team in support, ranks with Chic’s hottest rockers (his ’59 NRC single is also here, both sides penned by Thompson).

    Chic entered the big leagues by snagging the U.S. rights to the British skiffle smash Freight Train by The Chas. McDevitt Skiffle Group Featuring Nancy Whiskey and thus scored its only national hit during the spring of ’57.

    It’s on this collection too, as are fine rockabilly outings by Pat Kelly, Don Johnston, and Cliff Crawford (better known under his legal surname of Crofford).

    In a brief timespan, Chic Records built an impressive rockabilly legacy given first-class treatment on this splendid LP.

    On the occasion of her 85th birthday on October 20, 2022, Bear Family Records® honors Wanda Jackson, the Queen of Rockabilly with a fine 10inch vinyl LP.
    A round dozen of unique Rockabilly classics fill the grooves of this high-quality record in a limited edition.
    In addition to (Let’s Have A) Party, tracks include Baby Loves Him, Mean Mean Man, Cool Love and Savin’ My Love and her re-makes of Fujiyama Mama and Hot Dog! That Made Him Mad.
    Liner notes by Bill Dahl.
    What a party!

    All hail the rockabilly queen! Wanda Jackson staked her royal reputation as an unbridled rocker on the killer sides she waxed for Capitol Records during the second half of the 1950s.

    A dozen of those classics constitute this Bear Family Records® 10-inch LP, every one permeated with the sexy swagger and sensual sway that became her trademark after Elvis helped convince her to switch her stylistic focus from country to rock and roll.

    Wanda set her own Baby Loves Him, Mean Mean Man, Cool Love, and Savin’ My Love afire, made the swinging oldies Fujiyama Mama and Hot Dog! That Made Him Mad her own, and transformed the rip-roaring (Let’s Have A) Party into a national hit (even Elvis and The Collins Kids couldn’t do that).

    Wanda’s studio bands included guitar demigods Joe Maphis and Roy Clark as well as her own touring combo, The Poe Kats featuring piano pounder ‘Big’ Al Downing. Jackson’s rip-roaring rockabilly side is on full glorious display on these 12 classic tracks. Talk about a party!
