Red Hot Rockabilly Parts One,Two,Three Various Capitol,Imperial,Liberty Records
Quite possibly the ugliest album/CD covers I've seen in a long long time,but the music inside it makes up for it. It's mostly made up of the mid to late 50's very early 60's rockabilly/ rock from Imperial Records, Capitol, and Liberty Records Stable-o-Stars. It's not a bad batch of stuff,either. Well, not as good as the out pouring of love for Wanda Jackson, you guys loved her in the last post, and I'm glad. I could not stop playing her music, and I think I actually forced at least 10 people to go out and find her music. I guess that was the point. This new set of rockabilly 3 volumes worth should also spin in your players just as much. There's a good bunch of tunes, that aren't the most obvious choices for compilations, and that's what I really like, these are a little more obscure songs, and I have to admit, I actually prefer hearing the artists more obscure works. I don't wanna hear Buddy Knox's "Party Doll", or the big hits of Ricky Nelson, or Eddie Cochran's massive hits, I think the lesser known tracks are never played on radio,and are always a sweet surprise. The idea is to dig for the other music, and not just get off on the radio played hit. These artists are not one trick ponies, and there's no such thing as over night success. So if your ears are open, to this, you're going to be a happy camper with this series of Red Hot Rockabilly 1,2,3. Enjoy 'em!
