    Bill Carter: fantastic rocker from Arkansas!

    Luxury edition consisting of a 10″ vinyl LP plus CD with large-format booklet – containing all his rockers from 1954 to 1961!

    For example: recordings for 4-Star Records with the Carolina Drifters.

    The CD contains bonus tracks by Bill Carter and the Carolina Drifters as well as all the rockers released on the Indio label by Clyde Arnold and Ray Smith, among others.
    Carter was rediscovered by Mark Lee Allen, who interviewed him several times and wrote the booklet introduction.
    Bill Carter has personally supported our project!   Roland Heinrich wrote the detailed liner notes.

    Bill Carter was born in 1929 in Eagleton, Arkansas, moved with his family to Oklahoma in 1937 and six years later to Indio in California. His family encouraged his interest in music at an early age and provided funding for singing lessons when Bill was in his teens. Local radio stations presented him before he joined the US Air Force in 1949. During his military service in California he formed his first C&W bands and performed in the San Francisco area and even at a radio station in San Antonio, Texas.

    After completing his military service in 1953 Carter joined Jim DeNoone’s country band as a singer and performed at the ’California Hayride’ in San Francisco. In the same year, Bill Carter was the vocalist on the band’s recording sessions for Gilt-Edge Records. Finally, he formed his own trio, with whom he worked regularly over the next five years, pursuing the goal of becoming known beyond the local area. Between 1956 and 1961, Carter recorded under his own name for small and medium-sized labels such as 4-Star, Republic, Tally, Black Jack, Honey B, ’D’, Rural Rhythm and Ozark. The up-tempo number ’I Wanna Feel Good’, produced for Tally in Bakersfield, California in 1957, became his biggest hit and opened the doors to the ’Louisiana Hayride’ and the ’Grand Ole Opry’. Finally, in 1959 he ventured into Rockabilly and recorded ’Cool Tom Cat’.

    In the following years Carter followed a new musical orientation and also produced gospel oriented material, not only under his own name. He took part in other recording sessions as a singer and worked as a producer. In the first half of the 1960s he participated in recordings for no less than thirteen different record companies. It was during this period that Bill Carter became a convinced Christian and met a brother in spirit in the Baptist preacher Leonard Sipes, who formerly called himself Tommy Collins. From then on, Carter’s main focus was on Christian music, which he also brought to the stage with his own formation, the Bill Carter Singers, founded in 1969.

  • Robbins Marty - Rock’n Roll’n Robbins (10``LP)

    27,00
    10inch LP (limited edition – colored vinyl) 1-LP (10″), 10 tracks. 
    • The original of this 10″LP was released on the Columbia label in 1956 with a total of six songs. 
    • The new edition of Bear Family is based on the Canadian pressing of that time. 
    • To spice up the original, we have added four bonus tracks, all of which were also released in 1956!
    • The original is very hard to find, at prices beyond the $500 limit.
    • Robbins’ rockabilly recordings perfectly fit into our 10″ series.
    • Marty Robbins always had a deep aversion to Rock ’n’ Roll and yet, for whatever reason, recorded this great album.
    • Rockabilly at its very best!
    • Limited edition of 500 copies on colored vinyl.
    • Postcard insert with a rare picture of Marty Robbins.
    Marty Robbins would probably prefer to forget that he ever recorded this album, this famous, extremely rare and sought-after album, originally released on a 10″LP in Canada and Brazil. Marty’s heart wasn’t necessarily in Rock ’n’ Roll, but that doesn’t mean that he couldn’t get it right! (which ’Rock ’n Roll ’n Robbins’ proves emphatically).

    Hell-O my satanic friends!
    Do not listen to the evil biblical propaganda from above because you are undoubtedly worthy enough, daring enough, and ready for a second insane stroll through the devil’s carnival. For a sinful walk through this hellish fair! You feel seedy enough to secure a second devilish ticket for my fiendish ghost train!
    Escape your boringly sizzling purgatory and come, hurry up and step in… come aboard, take a seat, because I’m the only one who really knows how to have a hell of a time. This place is teeming with Azrael’s many seductions:
    Only here, with me, will you meet provocatively lovely ladies with sinfully luscious lips and flashing eyes that will tempt, then blow your mind.
    Only here, with me, can you sip the diabolic drinks for free that reflect the malicious moonlight.
    Only here, with me, can you feast on promising satanic dishes to delight the depths of your taste buds.
    And only here, with me and my drunken engineers, we will again provide “legions” of breath-taking Gadara-wagons for you, lightning-fast hot-rods, arrow-fast black trains to take you straight to hell!
    You only need to be prepared to bear the consequences … If you are not a spoilsport!
    All the artists gathered here can sing a song about it …
    From Hell with Love, Saint Satan, Old Nick…

  • Williams Hank - The Lonesome Sound Of (10``LP)

    20,00

    Bear Family Records probe deeply into the Hank Williams legacy and breathe new life into the 1960, MGM Records (MGM E 3803) 12 inch album ‘The Lonesome Sound’.

    – Vinyl reissue of 1960 MGM album.
    – Originally released as a 12” LP, we have put the 12 songs on a 10” album.
    – A collection of songs, previously recorded by other artists.
    – Made seven years after his death from Hank Williams vocal demos with later session overdubs. 
    – Carefully restored sound, re-mastered for this special release.
    – Numerous photographs and expert annotation and research by Martin Hawkins.  
      
    Bear Family have condensed the ‘The Lonesome Sound’ album to 10 inch size, and the album comprised 12 songs that were written and previously recorded by other artists. The specialists at Bear Family bring a vibrant quality into a project made originally from Hank Williams vocal demos, with session overdubs applied in the late 1950s in Nashville and give what fans have waited for, a clear vocal intonation, musical clarity, like never before.
    Hank Williams had been laid to rest for seven years and the public still mourned his passing, and clamoured for new songs and the posthumous ‘The Lonesome Sound’ was the result of this request. The vocals used on ‘MGM E 3803’ were largely mixture of transcriptions, vocal and guitar demos. Some of the musicians used for this project had previously worked with Hank or had the ability to recreate his sound. To provide a full sound the session men nucleus comprised; Don Helms, Harold Bradley, Floyd Chance, and to deepen the sound and fit into the times drums were provided by Murrey Harman. The musicianship was sympathetic and perfectly done, what was at issue was the quality of the demos used, and at that time overdubbing was still in its infancy.
    Hank’s interpretation of other artist’s songs, often found him injecting something new into the arrangements, changing the tempo and direction of many of the composition, stamping upon them his own identity. Upon hearing the music allow yourself to absorb the clarity, rhythm, and vocal delivery of Sundown and Sorrow, Roly Poly or Tennessee Border, hearing is believing, and the tempo hints at the next incantation of music’s development. The current political ‘hot’ topic in Europe is over pension and retirement payments. Crooning the melancholy and reflective Rockin’ Chair Money, transposes Hank into another persona, spending army wages in semi-retirement, rockin’ and swinging on the old porch chair. Within the song the simplicity of the past is clear, sadly Hank had no time to plan his future.
    Ernest Tubb was clearly an influence on Hank, which can be heard from the bluesy radio transcription It Just Don’t Matter Now while I’m Free At Last and First Year Blues find Hank vocals almost cloning in style to the originator. However on torch songs Hank is full of anguish and this tortured vocal can easily linked be to the volatile time in his life, with his first wife Miss Audrey. Whether self-composed or taken from other artists the songs bond to his life and relationships. And this aspect is what is what makes Hank Williams different from the rest.
    Staying with odes to lonesome and abandonment, and what was possibly an Irish folk song, No One To Welcome Me, is a heart-breaking poem to some unnamed prodigal son returning home, but all that was, is no longer the same. Bob Nolan’s Cool Water has been covered by many artist, the consummate performer that Hank was, he gives his best rendition of a man roaming the desert needing water to survive. It is public knowledge that Hank’s tipple was a little stronger than water!
    Hank could sing them fast and he could sing them slow, when he sang the pain songs there were crooned with true anguish and with an intense emotional feel and the up-tempo shufflers looked at the happy aspects of life.  For many fans of the Montgomery Alabama born singer, his music is also regarded as the roots development of rockabilly music.
    Quality is a word associated with Bear Family Records and you will hear the best possible sound from our products. And with today’s technology and the ability to remain true to the period, Bear Family breaths live into the almost 60 year old project and gives to the fans something which they will savour. The 110 gram vinyl and the deep groove which contains the music, adds to the richness of the sound. The sleeve offers numerous photographs and is expertly annotation and research by Martin Hawkins. This is something Hank Williams’s fans will need.

  • Various - Hillbilly Goes Electric – Rarest Of Rare Country Boogie Vol. 1 (10``LP)

    20,00

    The RICHARD WEIZE ARCHIVES make available the first in a series of 10″ albums which will explore post war esoteric country boogie recordings. Due to post war austerity maintaining a large band was too costly and the result was the beginning of small combos. The cowboy singers had to be heard and amplification of the instruments was replacing the acoustic cowboy sound, they had to play louder at Juke Joints to be heard over the often rowdy crowds.
    The music itself is a wonderful rhythmic fusion of hillbilly and western music blended with black blues and rhythm influences.

    The album is informatively annotated by Kevin Coffey offering fascinating insights into the artist’s music and the musicians who provided the compelling rhythms. The 100g, 10 inch vinyl album is housed in a high quality gatefold sleeve which opens out to display numerous vintage images with many rare photographs to add a face to the music.

  • Various - Hillbilly Goes Electric – Rarest Of Rare Country Boogie Vol. 2 (10``LP)

    The RICHARD WEIZE ARCHIVES continue their series of 10″ albums, and volume two of the country boogie recordings maintains the quality, and perhaps features better known songs. The cowboy singers also had to be heard and amplification of the instruments was replacing the acoustic cowboy sound. The combos had to play louder at Juke Joints to be heard over the often rowdy crowds.

    On this volume we introduce Texas Cat Music, which was to become the new direction of hillbilly boogie music. These hepped up cowboys were hitting the groove, and making the groundwork for the birth of rockabilly.                    ”Mark Armstrong, Bühl, Germany, August 2017”

  • Cochran Brothers - Latch On (10``LP)

    20,00

    Richard Weize, creative mastermind of legendary label BEAR FAMILY and one of Germany’s most renowned music experts, presents some rare recordings of the Cochran Brothers on his new label RICHARD WEIZE ARCHIVES.

    Presented on 10” vinyl in a gatefold cover.

    Hank Cochran and Eddie Cochran, not related, both rose to international prominence in music – Hank Cochran in Country Music and Eddie Cochran in Rock and Roll. Their success as solo artists did not come overnight, though. Before that, Hank and Eddie joined forces in 1954 when they were only teenagers, Hank 19 and Eddie 16, but as the Cochran Brothers they made their very first professional steps in music. And they did so with some success. The Cochran Brothers recorded a lot of material. There were accomplished masters, some of which were selected for release on singles, as well as demo recordings previously available only in substandard audio quality. For this 10” LP we’ve brought together the full master recordings to give you the best listening experience and to demonstrate the talent of these young performers to the fullest. The first side shows their capabilities as a country duo while the second side focuses on their skills in Rock and Roll. This is exemplified by Latch On which is featured in both a country and a rocking version. All three EKKO singles are collected here as well as two songs that were held back by EKKO and only released in the 1980s. Listening to these early recordings of the Cochran Brothers and appreciating their professionalism and talent, it is clear that their future success as solo artists was a very likely outcome.

  • Jones George - Why, Baby, Why (Unreleased Recordings) (10``LP)

    20,00

    Richard Weize, creative mastermind of legendary label BEAR FAMILY and one of Germany’s most renowned music experts, presents some newly discovered & unreleased recordings of George Jones on his new label RICHARD WEIZE ARCHIVES.

    Presented on 10” vinyl in a gatefold cover.

    George Jones greatest successes lay ahead of him when he performed the tracks in this collection – his first number one was just around the corner – and his voice would mature to almost unimagined depth, but there remains something special about his early years, a yet unjaded passion and an unadulterated authenticity that would arguably
    disappear in the coming years. Even as his voice matured and his abilities deepened, something else was lost which many find in vintage recordings like these. This rare glimpse of George Jones at his early peak serves as something of a companion to BEAR FAMILY’s box set chronicling the complete recordings of Jones STARDAY-MERCURY years, from 1954-61.

    The ten live tracks on this LP straddle the 1956-57 period when Jones, having broken through on STARDAY, switched to major label MERCURY via a deal between the two labels that had largely been made possible by Jones’ success on STARDAY. It captures him not only singing his earliest hits, but also singing songs of his contemporaries, in wonderful fidelity, including Ernest Tubb’s classic Let’s Say Goodbye Like We Said Hello that he never recorded commercially.
