While American audiences know him best as a craggy, calm presence in countless TV shows and films (with an emphasis on Westerns) from the 1980s on, dedicated rockabilly fans are more liable to be aware of Ed Bruce’s recorded legacy. He debuted in 1957 as a fresh-faced teenaged rocker at Sun Records billed as Edwin Bruce with the classic Rock Boppin’ Baby, and proceeded to cut for RCA Victor, Wand, and a couple of smaller concerns before finally notching his first country chart entry a full decade later.

’See The Big Man Cry’ contains everything Edwin released during his first burst of studio activity, including obscure one-off singles for TransSonic and Apt. There are also 10 sides that Sun didn’t see fit to release at the time, including Eight Wheel Driver, Baby That’s Good and Doll Baby. Bruce died January 6, 2021, and ’See The Big Man Cry’ stands as a fitting 30-song tribute to the late singer/actor’s fascinating early years on record.
