    From 1959 to 1964, Conway Twitty was under contract with MGM. During this time, he released a variety of rock ’n’ roll and R&B cover versions and his own rock numbers. ’It’s Only Make Believe’ made it to the top of the pop charts and became his biggest hit,.
    Various regular LP versions of the album ’The Rock & Roll Story’ were released on several continents. This is a reissue of a rare 10″ LP, which was only released in this form in Japan at the time.

    Kindly Marcel Meersmann gave us his precious original for the purpose of reproducing the original cover. In accordance with today’s technological possibilities, we have added four bonus tracks to the eight titles selected at that time, carefully mastered the recordings for this limited vinyl edition and had the new version pressed on colored vinyl.

    Please, note: strictly limited to 500 copies, worldwide! And by the way: from the mid-60s, now under contract with Decca in the USA, Conway Twitty became a successful star of country music. He was elected to both the Rockabilly Hall of Fame and the Country Music Hall of Fame.

  • Vee Bobby - The Drugstore’s Rockin’ – Suzie Baby (CD)

    18,00

    Our Bobby Vee retrospective focuses on the teen idol’s Rock ’n’ Roll years (1959 – 1962) – and Vee could rock, and how!
    Bobby Vee’s career began in the wake of arguably the greatest tragedy in rock ’n’ roll history: on Feb. 3, 1959, Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and the Big Bopper – on tour as the ’Winter Dance Party’ – were killed in an accident, and Bobby Vee, only 15 years old, stepped in as a replacement at the Moorhead show!
    The young, successful producer Snuff Garnett saw great potential in Vee’s Buddy Holly-inspired style, and with the string sound favored by Holly, made him a teenage superstar in pop as well.
    Liner notes by Bill Dahl; many little-known photos and illustrations in the extensive booklet and carefully mastered recordings.

    Bobby Vee was born Robert Thomas Velline in 1943 in Fargo, North Dakota. In stark contrast to the Coen brothers’ gritty 1995 ’Fargo’ film drama, Bobby Vee’s Rock ’n’ Roll exudes the feel of teenage youth in those days.

    Not only was Bobby Vee a genuine teen idol during the early 1960s with a string of lighthearted smashes to his credit, he also knew how to rock, his strong Buddy Holly influence never far from the surface. Vee’s entry in Bear Family’s ‘The Drugstore’s Rockin’’ series, spanning 1959-1962, contains his debut single, Suzie Baby, through his first major hits for Los Angeles-based Liberty Records, Devil Or Angel and Rubber Ball, and the violin-enriched blockbusters Take Good Care Of My Baby and The Night Has A Thousand Eyes. But Bobby refused to abandon his ‘50s rock and roll roots—witness the five tracks culled from his splendid ‘Bobby Vee Meets The Crickets’ album with ex-Holly sideman Tommy Allsup on lead guitar.

    Nearly everything here was produced by Texas native Snuff Garrett, perhaps the youngest A&R man around then and one of the most successful. Garrett was a huge fan of Holly’s mature strings-drenched approach and introduced it to Liberty. Bobby Vee rode that delightfully lavish sound to full-fledged teen superstardom.

  • Scott Jack - Crying In My Beer 1961-1962 (CD)

    13,00

    JACK SCOTT was famously described by American Rock writer Dave Marsh in The Heart Of Rock & Soul as ’Undeniably, the greatest Canadian Rock ’n’ Roll singer of all time’.

    Mean and moody, with an aura of brooding menace permeating his songs, Scott wrote and recorded some of the most atmospheric, compelling and memorable Rockabilly discs of the era.

    He was at the peak of his popularity in the late 50s and early 60s, during which he placed more than 20 records on the US charts.

    Jasmine’s earlier Jack Scott compilation, Touch Me Baby, I Go Hog Wild (JASCD178), covered his early career, between 1957-60, ending just as his contract was transferred to Capitol Records.

    This compilation anthologises his Capitol output, comprising all twenty-four sides he recorded for the label, including hits like ’A Little Feeling (Called Love)’, ’My Dream Come True’ and ’Steps One And Two’.

    Much of this material is difficult to find elsewhere on CD, notably the six bonus tracks, which were not issued at the time.

  • Various - Killer B’s – US Pop Hits (CD)

    13,00

    There are few record collecting experiences more enjoyable than discovering a great, long lost & forgotten gem, on the B-side of a classic, much-loved Hit.

    This compilation features 32 such killer flips, adorning various U.S. Pop hit 45s between 1956-1962.

    Many of these artistes, like The Everly Brothers, Connie Francis and Brenda Lee, often enjoyed two-sided hits; yet these were B-sides that somehow got away.

    Artists like The Coasters, Duane Eddy, Bobby Darin, The Drifters, Roy Orbison, Sam Cooke, Gene Pitney, Ben E. King, The Shirelles, The Four Seasons, Jack Scott, Freddy Cannon, Dion, Chuck Berry, etc., were Pop chartmaking regulars, while others, e.g. The Teddy Bears, The Hollywood Argyles, were One Hit Wonders.

    Most of the A-sides of these discs were million sellers, and all were massive U.S. hits; yet all of these Killer Bs sound like they could have been hit records, in their own right.

  • Prima Louis - The Very Best of Louis Prima – Jump, Jive & Wail 1952-1959 (CD)

    13,00

    Bandleader/singer/trumpeter LOUIS PRIMA, who’d enjoyed huge successes in the 1930s and ’40s, mounted a major comeback in the 1950s, after teaming up with Keely Smith and Sam Butera & The Witnesses.

    This compilation, which is one of a closely-linked trilogy, presents the Very Best of Prima’s solo recordings for Columbia, Jubilee and Capitol between 1952-59, with the emphasis very much on his 1956-59 Capitol output.

    It features pre-Capitol collectors’ items like ’The Bigger The Figure’, ’Luigi’ and ’Man, Dig That Crazy Chick’, although twenty-one of the twenty-five sides are from his Capitol output.

    These include singles like ’Buona Sera’ (a UK hit), ’5 Months, 2 Weeks, 2 Days’ and ’Banana Split For My Baby’, alongside tracks from the hit albums ’The Wildest’, ’The Call Of The Wildest’, ’The Wildest Show At Tahoe’, ’Las Vegas Prima Style’, ’Hey Boy! Hey Girl!’ and ’Strictly Prima’.

    The punters who buy this one, will soon realise that they have to buy the other two releases in this series!
