Various - Red Hot Rockabilly: Got Rockin' On My Mind - 2CD Album



Format: 2CD

Secret Records releases a 2-CD album filled with 50 fantastic rockabilly tracks including some that were previously unavailable and a comprehensive 24 page booklet.

Many fans of rockabilly and rock 'n' roll over time will have become slightly overwhelmed by the amount of compilations and reissues that are now available on the market containing many of the standard, out of copyright tracks that have become associated with this timeless genre. A lot of these would have been sourced from legendary labels such as Sun, Columbia, King and Decca whilst overlooking many of the smaller, independent labels who were shuffling the genre forward from an underground perspective.

These labels may not have had the big name stars but they certainly supported the integrity and passion that were in many of their performers. John Burton and John Kennedy, the dedicated compilers who put this album together, have attempted to represent these obscurer artists highlighting to rockabilly listeners the vast amount of talent that may have been overlooked. A perfect example of this is Jimmy Dale, who's two tracks on this compilation have never been released before. A few others comprising this double album did go on to find success such as country star Webb Foley, Ray Smith and Lucky Wray (brother of Link Wray, who also plays on the song).

Although many will associate the beginning of rockabilly with Elvis Presley's time on Sun Records, enthusiasts will point to Beamon Fors's 1955 song 'You Better Go Now' as the first true 'rockabilly' release, the opening track of this album. This recording contains many of the crucial rockabilly elements taken from rock 'n' roll, country and bluegrass: jangly guitars, pulsating bass lines, wailing lap steel and howling vocals wrapped in a ball of energy ready to explode - a perfect representation of 'Red Hot Rockabilly: Got Rockin' On My Mind'.

Original, authentic and with extensive sleeve notes on all the artists featured; this is a valuable look into America's musical history.
