  • 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.

  • Boorer Boz - Back To Neo… (10``LP)

    20,00

    What we have here is an eight-track mini-album from Boz Boorer and it’s a belter. Boz really needs no introduction, but for the sake of the truly introverted, he is the guitarist from early 1980s’ rockabilly giants the Polecats. For the past thirty years Boz has been Morrissey’s right-and man and co-writer, whilst also running his own studio, periodically releasing solo albums as well as producing many other artists.

    The first track on the record is an inspired cover of the Elvis Hitler classic ‘Cool Daddy In A Cadillac’. The vocals on this track are handled in masterful fashion by head Space Waster Mick Lammond. The song is propelled along by the duelling guitars of Boz and James Walbourne of the Pretenders – it is a joy to behold.

    The next track is co-written by Boz. ‘The Last Man Left Alive’’, sees the pace slowed markedly on this rather melancholy track, that tells quite a lyrical story citing John Donne’s ‘no man is an island’ along the way – a sort of intellectubilly if you will. The story based on the Twilight Zone episode ‘Enough Time At Last’ tells the story of Henry Bemis, a bank teller and a very bookish man, who has to read at work because his wife at home won’t let him read. Henry goes to the bank vault on his lunch break and while there an H bomb goes off. Henry then emerges from the rubble whereupon he is on the cusp of suicide until he discovers the ruins of a public library replete with the complete works of Dickens and George Bernard Shaw. He is visibly cheered by having the time to read all the great works of literature. Having sorted all of the books into piles, he then drops his pebble lenses which fall to the floor and shatter – a ‘cruel irony’ indeed!

    ‘No, No, No,’ is cover of the classic by Jay Swan, but where it stands head and shoulders above other versions is in the double bass, played by Phil Polecat, that provides such a wonderful pulse to the track. The track was actually recorded a couple of years ago but had sat in the vaults until Boz, wisely, came to the conclusion that it was too good not to do anything with.

    The next track quickens the pace with a cracking version of ‘Pretty Baby’, a song recorded in 1958 on the Perspective label by the Vibes featuring Ronnie Franklin on vocals and also featuring David Gates who went on to have an enormous hit record in the 1970s with Bread and in particular with the song ‘Baby I’m A Want You’ With pumping piano, reverb-drenched vocals, and some tasty guitar solos, it sounds remarkably like the sadly departed Cavan Grogan.

    ‘Running From The Reaper’ begins like a Screamin’Lord Sutch number, but then reverts to a similar style to the ‘Last Man Left Alive’’ with a very rootsy feel to it. ‘Séance for Lux’ is part glam rock, part psychobilly it’s a cracker with the rhythm being pounded out on the floor tom and the multi-tracked vocal chorus – it is quite sublime.

    The lyricist on ‘Séance For Lux’, ‘The Last Man Left Alive’, ‘Running From The Reaper’ and ‘Take Me To Your Leader’ was an old mate of Boz, Anthony Brown, who used to be the singer in Sheffield indie band the Anklestar.

    ‘Take Me to Your Leader’ has a terrific groove to it and is another Boz original, once again with a psychobilly smell to it. The final track Waxahatchie Warrior has a real Ronnie Dawson feel about it; so, it comes as little surprise to hear from Boz that ‘it’s a tribute to Ronnie’ Waxahatchie being the place from where Ronnie came.

    This is a classy slab of varied rockabilly from a giant on the scene who shows absolutely no signs of slowing down and on evidence such as this, why on earth should he?

  • Rockabilly Boys - Poor Man’s Jamboree (10``LP)

    25,00

    Albeit being more than the sum of their parts with the Rockabilly Boys less is more. Elvis didn’t need drums and the same goes with the Rockabilly Boys. The undisputably top notch trio of Miku Majuri (rhythm guitar), Timo Kalijärvi (lead guitar) and Iikku Riepponen (doghouse bass) have leaned on the basic elements of early rockabilly – Country and Western with a touch of Rhythm and Blues – with peacock’s modesty and a strong catalogue of self penned material. Well known from a plethora of other bands the band are a tight weld and although pedant their live shows are a-burst with joy and relaxed. They’ve been together for 17 years. Arguably it’s an accident their debut album took this long but it’s a wait well worth. Kali’s extremely and genuinely authentic guitar work and Iikku’s rough but still perfect slap-technique have given Miku a fantastsome opportunity to write songs a little outside of the traditional Rockabilly frame. Almost fanatic attitude for the 50’s feeling makes it all the more interesting.

    Liner notes by Bill Dahl
    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.

    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!
