Carefully re-mastered for the best possible sound quality.
The long overdue tribute to a legendary uncompromising artist in our ’Rocks’ series!

The rocking music here is mostly from the 1950s and ’60s (classics such as Get With It, One Hand Loose, Tear It Up) but some later tracks remind us that Charlie Feathers was playing and recording his own version of rockabilly in Memphis for over 40 years.

Feathers was one of the very few artists who really did have a style all his own. His rock was not the same as anyone else’s. It was more country, yet also more bluesy, and with a pulse all its own; more about rhythm than anything.

Charlie only had a short ’50s career – but on iconic labels like Sun, Flip, Meteor, King – then was rediscovered in the ’70s rockabilly revival and beyond. He never had anything approaching a hit record but he always made good small-combo Southern rock ’n’ roll music – truly an uncompromising legend in his own time.

The CD booklet contains a new biography and unpublished memories of life with Charlie.
