Tells one of those stories that record collectors dream about! For the Bella and Blue Moon companies, in addition to better known musicians like Johnny Amelio, the Savoys and Gradie O’Neal, less successful colleagues like Buddy Bennett, Chuck Royal, Joe Jaros and the Empala Six recorded, all of them producing great songs in their day.
With most of the original master tapes lost forever, the majority of masters have been dubbed from rare and hard-to-find original singles (45s), carefully restored and remastered to match Bear Family’s quality standards as closely as possible.
