VARIOUS ARTISTS - ROCKABILLY CRAZE
You wanna whirl, you wanna flip, you wanne blip, blop, bib? Then you, cool daddy-o's smatch up this piece of wax, foss it an your bop machines and work out. Because the Sun label is not only creating but shining gloriously on
beyond spanking new-top notch stars!
Billy Riley, Sun's most current and radiant star of 1956 appears here for the first time. Observe the newspaper clipping shown above
which was issued in his home town of Jonesboro a few months back. Billy, a promising and talented singer who like other ordent performers attempt to interpret black oriented rock and roll, accidentally contributes to the molding of a rejuvenated music craze:
the hillbilly influence especially heard in the vocals and sensed throughout, coupled with the black rock, creates a new sound which could not be more precisely defined than rockabilly.
Generally these songs are brimming with rhythm, with swift acoustic guitar picking, a dominant slap bass, a consistent drumbeat and frequently a superb pumping piano. This combo attributes a backing with a positive dancing beat and if this
doesn't move you brothers, than you're a skiff!
The frency and stimulant induced by this fresh sound breaks out in the solos. Customarily it in in good form so whoop
and holler as heard in ''Rock With Me Baby'', where the rhythm gradually progresses into total spots, it is the case, particularly on the A sides of this record.
most restrained vocals became uncontrollable as they succeed the progressive rhythm. Check out ''She's My Baby'' and ''Let's Bop'' and be enlightened. Inserted in this sleeve are the remaining sessions from the ''All Night Rock'' album, highlighting incredible
entertainers such as Jack Earls and Ray Harris from Memphis, Gene Simmons from Mississippi, Sonny Burgess from Arkansas, and Warren Smith a Mississippian, who along with Roy Orbison ''The Wink Wild Cat'' came from Texas. You'll receive a special treat listening
to these dudes' first sessions with the Sun Recording Company!
