Various - That’ll Flat Git It! Vol. 42 – Rockabilly & Rock ’n’ Roll From The Vaults Of King, Federal & DeLuxe Records (CD)


1-CD (Digipak) with 36 page booklet, 30 tracks. Total playing time approx. 71 min.

The first of two CDs that feature recordings from Cincinnati’s legendary King label in the successful ’That’ll Flat…Git It!’ series of rock ’n’ roll and rockabilly on Bear Family Records.
Beginning in the mid-1950s, King Records – founded in 1943 – released outstanding rockabilly along with R&B and country.
The musicians were primarily from Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, including icons like Charlie Feathers, Trini Lopez, Bruce Channel and Rusty York, teen rockers like Wes Voight and Fuller Tood, and guys like Moon Mullican and Dave Dudley.
Over the years, King’s R&R and rockabilly catalog grew to compete internally with R&B and C&W.
Detailed liner notes by Chicago music historian, Bill Dahl on the history of the label and each artist in the extensive booklet, plus lots of photos, illustrations and carefully mastered recordings from the best possible sources.

Launched by Syd Nathan in late 1943, Cincinnati’s King Records held a unique place within the postwar record industry: it was equally prolific and successful in the rhythm and blues and country and western fields.

That placed it in excellent stead when rockabilly broke out during the mid-1950s; young rocking talent abounded in the tri-state area surrounding Cincy (Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana), and King attracted the cream of the crop.

King recorded so many rockabilly classics that it took two of Bear Family’s ‘That’ll Flat…Git It!’ volumes just to gather the highlights. Volume 1 includes seminal performances by label mainstays Charlie Feathers, Mac Curtis, and piano-pounding Moon Mullican as well as rip-roaring obscurities by Hank Mizell (Jungle Rock), Dave Dudley (Rock And Roll Nursery Rhyme), Trini Lopez (a pre-fame Rock On), Bruce Channel, Hardrock Gunter, Delbert Barker, Rusty York, and Joe Penny.

Boyd Bennett and His Rockets—King’s answer to Bill Haley and His Comets—are here too, as are teen rockers Wes Voight and Fuller Todd and country stalwarts Luke McDaniel and Bob Newman. King ended up just as rich in rockabilly and rock and roll as it had been in R&B and C&W; this collection and its companion volume BCD17715 pay expansive tribute to Nathan’s visionary operation.
