Rogers Weldon - Trying To Get To You (CD)

Rogers Weldon - Trying To Get To You (CD)


When his recording of Trying To Get To You, was initially planned for issue, Imperial by mistake picked Roy Orbison’s version which went on the back of the Weldon Rogers single. Weldon also released Roy Orbison’s first record on his Je-Wel label.

Although he might be best remembered for the above two incidence Weldon Rogers was more than that: he was a classic example of a dying breed. A strong,

unabashedly honky-tonk singer and songwriter with a keen ear for making records that were both uncompromising and commercial, Rogers is a prime example of an artist caught in the transition from a largely regional to a more national emphasis in country music. His recordings, most of them self-produced, both reflected and defied the changing marketplace. They retained a regional character and charm. This collection offers a cross section of Weldon Rogers’ solo recordings from 1955-1968 and many of his classic country duets with his wife Wanda (aka Wanda Faye) from 1958 to 1964. It includes not only his classic rockabilly side, So Long, Good Luck, Goodbye, but three previously unissued sides from the same 1957 Imperial session held at Norman Petty’s Clovis, New Mexico studio, as well as the rocking duet with Wanda from 1958, Everybody Wants You, which featured a young Glen Campbell on lead guitar. Also included are early duets with brother Willie Rogers and classic, rare recordings for Queen, Rogers’ own Je-Wel label, Peach, Chart, Great and K-Ark, including Rogers’ final duets with singer Vennie Nice and several previously unissued recordings.
