    Eddie Cochran was truly Somethin’ Else. He had the look. He had the talent. He had the attitude. He played

    guitar–really played guitar. He produced his own records. He wrote his own songs. And he died too soon,

    leaving the tantalizing promise of what might have been. Eddie Cochran was no prefabricated teen idol. He

    controlled his music in a way that few early rock ’n’ rollers could or did. He lived in the studio and explored its

    potential, and, as rock ’n’ roll changed, he changed with it. His death in 1960 was a tragic loss.

    This is the most comprehensive Eddie Cochran compilation ever assembled!

  • Burnette Johnny - Train Kept A Rollin – Memphis To Hollywood: The Complete Recordings 1955-1964 (9CD Boxset + BOOK) (CD)




    Johnny Burnette was at the heart of rock ’n’ roll music for almost ten years, and had a leading role in most of the changes that overtook the music from the dawn of rockabilly to the British Invasion. Now his music from those incredible years is complete for the first time!Johnny Burnette was one of the very few Memphis rockabillies actually born in Memphis. Many rank his 1956 and 1957 Rock ’n’ Roll Trio recordings as the finest in all of rockabilly. The explosiveness and youthful energy truly heralded a new era in music, and the Trio’s impact is felt to this day. But there was much more to Johnny Burnette, and it’s all here on 9 CDs. Here is his very first record from 1955 as well as all of the Rock ’n’ Roll Trio recordings complete with alternate takes, and all of Johnny’s Hollywood recordings, plus one hundred rare or unissued demos. Johnny and his brother Dorsey began their west coast career writing songs for Ricky Nelson (Believe What You Say, It’s Late, etc.). Johnny recorded for Nelson’s label, Imperial, in 1958, then switched to Freedom/Liberty Records later that year. During his four years on Liberty, he scored several worldwide smash hits that defined the early Sixties, including Dreamin’, You’re Sixteen, Little Boy Sad, and Big Big World. All the issued and previously unissued Liberty recordings are here, complete for the first time. After leaving Liberty in 1962, he recorded for Chancellor (seven unissued Chancellor recordings are included here), Reprise, and then Capitol. The Capitol sessions are complete at last, too. Finally, Johnny recorded for his own label, Sahara/Magic Lamp, before dying tragically in a boating accident in 1964.In addition to all of the session recordings, this exclusive boxed set includes three CDs of demos that Johnny recorded with Eddie Cochran, his brother Dorsey, and others. It also includes his instrumental recordings for Infinity and Gothic, as well as Dorsey’s rockabilly classic Bertha Lou (featuring Johnny on guitar and background vocals).This set also includes a newly researched biography by Colin Escott and a complete discography by Russ Wapensky and Richard Weize, as well as exclusive photos from private collections and the Burnette family

  • Nelson Ricky - The American Dream – The Complete Imperial & Verve Recordings 1957-1962 (6CD Boxset) (CD)


    TÄYDELLINEN !! Mukana mahtava kovakantinen kirja!!

    ABOUT RICKY NELSON…They call me a teenage idol…” Ricky Nelson sang in 1962. And of course he was the prototypical teenage idol. Already one of the most familiar faces on American television, he cut his first single at the age of seventeen. That single, I’m Walkin’, quickly amassed impressive sales and launched a career that would span three decades. A fan of Sun rockabilly, Ricky assembled his own band with a fabulous rock ’n’ roll sound, featuring guitarist James Burton, who would join him in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. He drew songs from some of the era’s greatest writers, including Johnny and Dorsey Burnette, Baker Knight, Gene Pitney, and Johnny Cash

    And just in case anyone thought that the family sitcom made Ricky Nelson a star, it’s worth remembering that the show wasn’t broadcast outside the United States, but Ricky was an international star, an influence on Cliff Richard, and an early favorite of Paul McCartney, among many others.

    ABOUT THIS BOXED SET…Twenty-five years in the making! Ever since Bear Family Records started, we’ve wanted to do the complete Ricky Nelson recordings on Verve and Imperial. Few artists had the consistency …and few were as influential. But we didn’t want to do an incomplete job so we waited until we had access to all the original masters and session tapes so that we could do it absolutely right.Now we’re ready, and here’s what we found!

    * Every Rick Nelson recording for Verve and Imperial in pristine original sound quality from the original tapes!

    * The very rare Challenge recordings with the FLEAS and THROPHIES featuring Ricky.

    * Many titles in stereo as well as mono!

    * Many previously unissued alternate takes, not included on the recent boxed set or elsewhere!

    * Sessions with false starts and incomplete takes. We’ll take you to Master Recorders for a Ricky Nelson session!

    * Rare TV performances, including duets with Lorrie Collins of the Collins Kids.

    * Rare movie performances including a duet with Dean Martin!

    * An incredible hardcover book with many previously unpublished photos and a newly researched biography by Los Angeles-based music journalist Todd Everett!

    * New 3-track mixes by Bill Inglot. Do we need to say more? * Yes we do: The production and final mastering is done by the ’One and Only Bob Jones!’

    * Did we forget to mention hits? They’re all here: I’m Walkin’, Be-Bop Baby, Stood Up, Waitin’ In School, Believe What You Say, My Bucket’s Got A Hole In It, Poor Little Fool, Lonesome Town, I Got A Feelin’, Never Be Anyone Else But You, It’s Late, Just A Little Too Much, Travelin’ Man, Hello Mary Lou, A Wonder Like You, Young World, Teenage Idol, It’s Up To You, Today’s Teardrops…and many more!* = STEREO”

  • Atkins Chet - Mr. Guitar-The Complete Recordings 1955 – 1960 7CDBox + BOOK (Käytetty CD)


    In a career that stretched over a half century, master guitarist Chet Atkins recorded nearly one hundred albums under his own name. Many consider the albums included here, made between 1955 and 1960, as his definitive work. Moving beyond traditional country, Atkins created a vast new audience with ’Chet Atkins In Three Dimensions,’ ’Stringin’ Along With Chet Atkins,’ ’Finger-Style Guitar,’ ’Hi-Fi In Focus’ and ’Chet Atkins At Home.’ They weren’t country albums, though they included country tunes. They weren’t jazz records, but they featured jazz and pop standards. They offered melodies by Bach, Brahms and Chopin, but they were hardly classical records. They included compositions by Ernesto Lecuona, but they’re not flamenco.

    This seven-CD box also includes ’Mister Guitar,’ ’Teensville,’ ’Chet Atkins’ Workshop’ and his acoustic Spanish guitar set, ’The Other Chet Atkins.’ Tracks from the orchestrated Living Stereo classic ’Chet Atkins In Hollywood’ appear here in their original, superior 1958 versions. Many other numbers only appeared on singles or EPs, including tracks issued as ’The Rhythm Rockers Featuring Chet Atkins.’ Sixteen RCA Victor masters and alternate takes here were previously unissued. Also included are tracks from two abandoned projects: ’My Brother Sings’ (featuring Jim Atkins on vocals) and an Elvis Presley tribute. Twenty SESAC recordings (never commercially available) and the 1959 ’Hum And Strum’ LP are also included.

    This set is the summation of Chet Atkins’ art. Budding and seasoned guitarists alike spent hours with these albums trying to unscramble Atkins’s technique. The list of musicians indebted to his groundbreaking virtuosity is enormous: Jerry Reed, Carl Perkins, Lenny Breau, George Harrison, Dave Edmunds, Mark Knopfler, Doc Watson, Scotty Moore, Marty Stuart, Richard Bennett, Thom Bresh, Leo Kottke, Buster B. Jones, and countless others. The Ventures learned Walk Don’t Run from Atkins’ 1957 recording, included here. Other Atkins staples include The Poor People Of Paris, In The Mood, Tiger Rag, Trambone, Blue Echo, Petite Waltz, Yankee Doodle Dixie, Jitterbug Waltz, Django’s Castle and the rhythmic Boo Boo Stick Beat, which is featured in two versions.

    As a bonus, this set includes Atkins’s first-known solo recording (a 1945 demo acetate from WNOX, Knoxville), and all tracks from ’A Most Happy Fella,’ a rare EP featuring Atkins accompanying Eddy Arnold on songs from Frank Loesser’s 1956 musical.

    In a 112-page hardcover book, Rich Kienzle documents Atkins’ life and music during these years, including his parallel career as a producer who helped shape the emerging ’Nashville Sound.’

    MAHTAVA! UPEA!! KAIKKI 50`S ROCKABILLYT SAMASSA PAKETISSA!! UPEA KIRJANEN!! Glen Glenn is perhaps California’s best known original 1950s rockabilly outside of Eddie Cochran. A veteran of the fertile California country music scene of the 1950s, Glen along with his longtime partner Gary Lambert on guitar recorded some of the best loved rockabilly sides of all time, including Everybody’s Movin’ and One Cup Of Coffee, which have both been covered by artists as diverse as The Stray Cats and Bob Dylan!Glen originally recorded a handful of 45’s for ERA and DORE Records in the late 1950s, but his legacy is also best known through a slew of demo recordings, unissued tracks, alternate takes, and live recordings from the television and radio.Glen’s recordings have been available on reissue since the 1970s, but you had to buy 6 CDs to have all the recordings, with tons of duplication-until now.  Leave it to Bear Family to FINALLY do a cohesive presentation of all of Glen Glenn’s recordings.This disc, compiled by British rock ’n’ roll expert Bill Millar, is the first of two that Bear Family plans to do, and contains all of Glen’s studio recordings.  From his early country demos (with Ralph Mooney on steel guitar) to the ERA Recordings he is best known for (including the dance floor fave Everybody’s Movin’), his rare DORE sides from the late 50s/early 60s (including the never-before reissued Suzie Green from Abilene), along with several alternate takes and rare studio demos, this CD is the definitive word on Glen’s studio recordings.

  • Carter Bill - Cool Tom Cat (10″LP + CD) (10``LP)


    1-LP (10″/25cm) with 12 page booklet, bonus CD. 12 tracks (LP), 24 tracks (CD). Total playing time approx. 28 min. (LP), 53 min. CD.

    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.

    Bobby Darin was born in New York City in 1936 and first appeared in local coffee houses in the mid-1950s. A first single from that time, ’My First Love’, went down without causing much attention.

    Connie Francis’ manager got him an appearance in the ’Tommy Dorsey Show’ and also got him a record deal with Decca Records. His debut single for the label, a cover version of ’Rock Island Line’, and other releases between 1956 and ’58 left no trace. It was only with his move to Atco Records and the 1958 ’Queen Of The Hop’, which sold millions of copies, that his career took off. In the following years he landed a total of four Top 10 hits, including the number one hits ’Dream Lover’ (USA) and ’Mack The Knife’ from the Threepenny Opera (UK) – awarded with a Grammy!

    Bobby Darin died in California on December 20, 1973. In 1990 he was inducted into the ’Rock and Roll Hall of Fame’ and nine years later into the ’Songwriters Hall of Fame’. Finally, in 2010 his life’s work was honored with a Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award.

    With the exact reproduction of an extremely rare Japanese 25cm LP – strictly limited to 500 colored copies – Bear Family releases twelve recordings from his most successful recording period!
