BOOK REVIEWS
DAS BILDERLEXIKON DER DEUTSCHEN SCHELLACK-SCHALLPLATTEN
Dr. Rainer Lotz first published his seminal work Grammophon-platten au der Ragtime Ara in 1979, since when he has produced a large body of work culminating in the magisterial, 44 CD, 2 volume Black Europe in 2013. It seemed impossible for him to produce anything that was even more impressive — but he has. This stupendous work is in 5 volumes with over 2200 pages, more than 10,000 colour pictures of record labels and countless black & white repro-ductions of trade-mark regis-trations and more. This book is not a discography; it has no catalogue reconstructions but it is, as described in the title, a picture encyclopaedia of German record labels. This does not mean that it con-tains information about record labels only sold in Germany; it embraces all records pressed in Germany ir-respective of the country of origin of the master.
Conclusion

In this set, Bear Family Records has created the ultimate package for this album. The combination of Ernie Wilkins’ arrangements, Jerry Wexler and Nesuhi Ertegun’s production and Turner’s roaring vocals alongside his backing band helped to shape the success of the original album. Colin Escott and the team at Bear Family have continued their legacy. Boasting pristine sound quality, attractive packaging and an abundance of bonus material, this is worth picking up if you’re looking to discover or rediscover a huge contribution to Big Joe Turner’s catalogue.

BCD 17600 LINK WRAY "Rocks" BAF 11021 LITTLE RICHARD "The BEst of."
LINK WRAY: Rocks Bear Family BCD 17600 (77:19) Link Wray is reputed to be the loudest of rock guitarists but from personal experience I rate him below Dick Dale though the smaller size of Dale's venue may have been a volumetric factor. Nevertheless, Link certainly is very loud, the reason for which may be explained in Bill Dahl's notes when he states that Fred Lincoln Ray Jr's "childhood bout with the measles had robbed him of a good portion of his hearing". These recordings, dated between 1958 and 1966, were mainly released on the Cadence. Cameo, Epic, Mala, Rumble and Swan labels, and include some rare tracks. Predominantly instrumentals of course, Link himself does sing gruffly on 'Ain't That Loving You Baby' and 'Mary Ann', while his brother Vernon Wray (knrwn as Ray Vernon) vocalises on 'I'm Counting On You' and 'Danger One Way Love'. The CD opens with the great 'Raw Hide' and closes with the classic, slow-paced 'Rumble', the two British hits which make outstanding 'bookends' with dynamic and sometimes tremolo guitar that lives long in the memory. Other outstanding tracks include the easily recognised 'Batman Theme' with deep, ominous notes and a guitar-spoken 'Batmanr: the full sound of 'I'm Branded' with shimmering guitar break; the energetic 'Deuces Wild' with drums upfront; the relaxed tempo and mellow tone of 'Radar; a slow track entitled 'Dinosaur' which includes sax inserts; and a radio/television show derivative 'The Shadow Knows'. With all 34 tracks timed between 1:43 and 2:50 there is little time to be bored. The sound quality is great and the 36-page booklet contains some welcome vintage photos. I'm sure that this digipack will be popular with rocking instrumental fans. Paul Harris

Blues and r&b sides by artists from Baton Rouge, Louisiana are usually associated with the Excello label: Slim Harpo, Lightnin' Slim, Lazy Lester. Tabby Thomas, Lonesome Sundown plus other fine blues artists (but not as well known) such as Arthur 'Guitar' Kelley, Silas Hogan, Whispering Smith and Jimmy Anderson. Well, they are all here but Martin Hawkins (who produced the set. wrote the notes and track by track analysis) has cast his net wider to include the likes of of Robert Pete Williams, Smoky Babe, Butch Cage, Willie B. Thomas and Clarence Edwards. Covering the years 1954 to 1971, the tracks are taken from sides released on 78s, 45s and albums. As Hawkins states: "We really don't know what the blues sound of Baton Rouge was before 1954", so we kick of with Otis Hicks, (aka Lightnin' Slim) who cut 'Bad Luck' and 'Bugger Bugger Boy', in 1954 for Feature which is swiftly followed by Cleveland White's (Schoolboy Cleve) 'Strange Letter Blues' also cut for Feature but a year later.

Bear Family and El Toro have done a lot of good work in the past twelve months com-memorating the infamous Winter Dance Party tour, with releases looking at the music of Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens and The Big Bopper, together with various tribute songs. Bear Family went a step further with The The Great Tragedy - The Winter Dance Party 1959' (reviewed in NDT 432) which looked beyond the Three Stars to the others on the original bill, such as Dion and Frankie Sardo. As a follow-up, they now concentrate on the bill after the fateful crash on February 3rd, hence the CD's tagline, 'And The Show Must Go On'. The tour organisers cer-tainly took that adage to heart by amazingly bringing in replacements for the very next night in Moorhead, Minnesota.

These incomers ranged from a couple of up and coming pop stars to two local acts. The CD starts with a short history of the Winter Dance Party before we plunge into Lee Davis' 'Three Young Men'. Written by Pomus & Shuman, it's a poor song with a flat vocal that's as joyful as the occasion. Probably better, and definitely more successful, was Tommy Dee's tribute, 'Three Stars'. Written within hours of the crash, the song was pitched to Eddie Cochran who found it too raw, resulting in Dee recording his own version before the week was out. From the original bill we get a couple each from Sardo and Dion & The Belmonts. Sardo's 'finest' moment for me was 'I Wanna Rock', but here we get both sides of ABC-Paramount 45-10003, the Elvis-like 'No Love Like Me' and the slightly annoying 'Oh Linda'. Dion & The Belmonts are simply sublime on the top side of Laurie 3021, with The Belmonts giving one of their finest performances.

The flip, 'Just You', was a bit too poppy and according to Dion was one of the reasons he left the group and label. The sleeve-notes quote him thus: "I think this is what really split Dion & The Belmonts up, this idea of this smooth sound. I just couldn't embrace it. It was like singing my dad's music, and I just wasn't into it." Flown in to save the day and fill the genuine

VA: THE GREAT TRAGEDY - WINTER DANCE PARTY 1959 #2
am 3. Februar jährte sich zum 61. Mal der Todestag des amerikanischen Sängers, Songschreibers und Gitarristen BUDDY HOLLY, der sich mit Songs wie „Peggy Sue“, „Oh Boy“, „Rave On“ und „That’ll Be The Day“ für alle Zeiten in den Rock ’n’ Roll-Annalen verewigt hat
an diesem Tag bestieg Holly zusammen mit den Rock ’n‘ Rollern Ritchie Valens (17) und Big Bopper (28) nach einem Konzert in Clear Lake, Iowa eine von ihm gecharterte Beechcraft Bonanza, die ihn nach Fargo, North Dakota bringen sollte - vermutlich aufgrund eines Instrumentenablesefehlers des 21-jährigen Piloten Roger Petersen kommt es zum Absturz der kleinen einmotorigen Propellermaschine, den keiner der Insassen überlebt die als Winter Dance Party auf drei Wochen angelegte Tournee durch den Mittleren Westen ging mit den jungen Teenager-Idolen Frankie Avalon, Jimmy Clanton, Fabian, Bobby Vee und Bill Parsons weiter - mit über 30 Aufnahmen erinnert The Great Tragedy - Winter Dance Party 1959 #2 nicht nur an Buddy Holly sondern auch an die Überlebenden und die Ersatzstars - ein starkes wie empfehlenswertes Stück Musikgeschichte, das jetzt erstmals auf CD erhältlich ist

Die Älteren unter Ihnen werden sich erinnern: Es gab mal eine Zeit, als die Frau noch Vollweib sein durfte und das Schönheitsideal nicht der 'Hungerhaken' war. Der Sex wurde nach und nach aus der Schmuddelecke befreit und auf der Kinoleinwand und musikalisch per Vinyl-Platte ans noch zart errötende Publikum gebracht. Das war Ende der 50er, Anfang der 60er Jahre, als im Zuge der moralischen Abrüstung die ersten Busen-Titelseiten an Zeitungskiosken auftauchten und Sexbomben wie Jayne Mansfield und Marilyn Monroe, Sophia Loren und Gina Lollobrigida, Anita Ekberg und Ann-Margret, Elke Sommer und Brigitte Bardot den Männern den Atem nahmen. Vielleicht sprach man noch nicht offen über die schönste Freizeitbeschäftigung der Welt, doch besungen wurde sie implizit.

These are the stories record collectors dream of! Many more previously uncomped artists are on board here for the first time, such as Lonnie Dee, Joe Franklin & The Hi-Liters, Daryl Petty, Bobby Strigo with The Blue Notes and many more. Sixty years after the original recording dates, Bear Family makes it possible for these artists to receive the attention they have always been entitled to.
As most of the original master tapes are lost forever, the majority of masters have been taken from the original rare and hard to find Renown single (45s) releases and have been carefully restored and re-mastered to meet the quality standards of Bear Family.
This is a truly worthy and long awaited project which will find favor among fans of rockabilly music, 1950s music aficionados, and folks into North Carolina culture and history, and just plain music fans in general.
This is one Bear Family release that you don’t want to miss!

Sleepy LaBeef Obituary

Sleepy LaBeef Obituary

Rockabilly legend Sleepy LaBeef who began his career in the mid-’50s and whose concerts continued to be a draw for the rockabilly community well into this year, died on December 26, 2019 at age 84. No cause of death has been given.

Although LaBeef never had great chart success, his legend loomed almost as large as he did - the singer was around six-and-a-a-half feet tall - at festivals where he was often the lone remaining original 1950s rocker. He earned his own chapter in one of the essential books about rock’s pioneers, Peter Guralnick’s “Lost Highway: Journeys and Arrivals of American Musicians.”

VARIOUS ARTISTS `YULESVILLE' (Bear Family)
Here 33 Festive tunes you probably won't have many of. It's that time of year again, Bear Family have been rummaging where others haven't when it comes to compiling festive compilations.
Unless you have an extensive collection of rarities it's unlikely many of these have featured in your previous playlists, in some cases that's a tragedy, Three Aces And A Joker's uber rare 'Sleigh Bell Rock' disproves any theory that Christmas songs have to be cheesy, this cracker rocks but only 600 people got a copy back in 1960.
Rarity is the feature of the album, it's impossible to list the merits of all the tracks in a short review, yes there are some jingle belled contrived numbers, well it's Christmas after all.
There's some ear-popping good stuff too the earliest from 1950, jazz but so near rock n roll, add some quirky, do-wop and rockabilly bopping and you have a tremendous compilation The booklet is packed with artist information too as you'd expect coming from this label, ideal if you're an anorak like me

LINK WRAY `ROCKS' (Bear Family)
Aficionados of music of the 50's and 60's will almost certainly have some of guitarist Link Wray's tunes in their collection, that's going to include 'Rumble' which hit the top 20 in the USA and UK in 1958. Apparently, the disc was shunned by some radio stations because it was considered to be inciting violence amongst teen gangs, some achievement for an instrumental. It's here but you have to wait until the 34th and final track for the hit. What you glean listening getting that far is the rich musical legacy this hugely influential guitarist left. There's none of the earliest Western Swing because this collection includes just tracks from 1958 to 1966 over several labels. They feature some lesser known gems including 'Big City After Dark' backing his brother Ray plus two tracks where Link provides the vocals. This is a fascinating collection easily illustrates why artists diverse as Neil Young and the Cramps were huge fans.

BILLY FURY `WONDEROUS PLACE' (Bear Family)
Billy Fury is on one hand considered up there with the best of the best of the breed of British rockers. His 1960 album 'The Sound Of Fury' thought of by some with a respect usually reserved for recordings that came out of Sun. True, that 10" is the nearest thing to authentic rockabilly that a UK artist recorded back in the day. On the other hand the conversation then tends to be that Billy Fury turned his back on rock n roll to concentrate on ballads, hits and money. The facts, like them or not is that the sort of music Billy was laying down in 1960 was almost half a decade out of date back in the States, their own brand of fabricated teen idols were flooding the charts while the originators of rock n roll were either in the army, out of vogue, hitting the bottle or both. Worst still, dead, Eddie and Buddy had already started looking beyond rock n roll before their untimely deaths. As far as record company bosses were concerned there was nowhere else commercially to go with Billy but ballads, mostly penned by someone else, they were proved right too, his ballads were much bigger hits than his early rockers. This goes some way to show that despite being know for ballads at the height of his career, when Billy was off the leash he was still rocking, here's the proof.

Presse Archiv - Link Wray Rocks - NOW DIG THIS
Alors que les sélections ci-dessus méritent d'être incluses dans le set et ajoutent de la variété, l'héritage de Link réside dans ses instrumentaux brutaux. Comme Bill Dahl l'écrit dans ses superbes notes : "Aucun guitariste n'en a jamais dit plus avec une poignée d'accords titanesques." Raw Hide','Batman Theme','I'm Branded','Jack The Ripper','Run, Chicken, Run','Ace Of Spades' et son immortel générique'Rumble', inspiré en partie par The Diamonds' The Stroll' sont tous ici. Les titres ont été bien choisis et j'ai noté dix-sept des autres comme étant de haute qualité. La lente version originale de'Big City After Dark' et la reprise de'Hold It' de Bill Doggett ont été créditées à Ray Vernon & The Raymen à la sortie initiale.

Les versions à saveur latine'El Toro' et'Pancho Villa' sont essentiellement le même air et les deux versions sont très bien. Tijuana', comme on pourrait s'y attendre, est une autre ville à saveur mexicaine. Slinky' comprend des tambours de jungle et'Right Turn' est un coup cru. L'accrocheur'Hand Clapper' et'Studio Blues', au titre trompeur de'Solid Mover', ont le copain du groupe Switchy au saxophone. Deuces Wild' est courageux et'Hang On', c'est de la rage avec une piqûre puissante. Turnpike USA' est un déménageur contagieux et'Dance Contest' ne traîne pas non plus. Les'Apache' comme'The Outlaw' sont assez clairsemés.
et le rapide "M. Guitare" porte bien son nom. Les sinistres'The Shadow Knows' et Duane Eddy-ish'Dixie Doodle' font également partie de cette catégorie.

Les neuf titres sont sur vinyle blanc 10" mais aussi un "CD bonus gratuit", et sont accompagnés d'un livret de 16 pages avec des notes détaillées et faisant autorité de Hank Davis, Shawn Pitts et Scott Parker. Il y a aussi des photos d'époque et des photos des quatre étiquettes en acétate. La page couverture présente une image de Carl avec W.S. Holland prise en 1953. Il s'agit d'une superbe sortie d'une performance historique qui plaira autant aux fans de Perkins qu'aux fans de rockabilly. Le tirage initial de 2000 avait été épuisé quelques jours après sa sortie ; il est actuellement en cours de répression au moment où j'écris ces lignes. Le statut de Carl Perkins en tant qu'interprète de rockabilly ultime est encore plus élevé - si c'est un peu possible - avec cette sortie. Ses prétentions d'avoir joué du rockabilly dans sa forme la plus pure bien avant qu'il n'atteigne un public plus large sont exposées à la vue de tous.

Il a cependant coupé l'un des siens en juillet suivant, le superbe, sombre et lunatique'Don't Jump' (Ne sautez pas). Parmi les objets les moins connus, on peut citer un trio d'originaux, le très souriant " If I Lose You " de novembre 61, la poussette r'n'b " Keep Away " et le " What Did I Do " de la session de janvier 63 qui a donné l'EP " Billy Fury & The Tor-nados ", un peu moyen. Twist Kid' précède les groupes de beat qui étaient sur le point d'éclater la tête à l'horizon. Les cinq titres de la session semi-live d'avril 1963 avec The Tornados et 500 adolescentes montrent que Fury était toujours un rocker dans l'âme malgré le flot des ballades qui sortaient. De la même année, nous obtenons une grande version de'Bumble Bee' de LaVern Baker. Au moment de son dernier enregistrement ici, en mars 1964, le groupe de soutien de Billy était The Gamblers et leur son plus lourd était évident sur des enregistrements comme'The Hippy Hippy Hippy Shake' et celui qui est inclus ici, une reprise de'Nothin' Shakin', un film de barnstorming. Je félicite Bear Family pour l'excellent travail qu'ils ont fait ici, des notes sur les manches au choix des enregistrements.

Ce groove Reed a été vraiment pris à cœur à Baton Rouge, et il a fait du monde un endroit meilleur. La plupart des bleus ici sont bons, mais l'intérêt principal est dans cette sensation de marécage, uptempo ou plus lent. Le livret de Martin Hawkins est excellent, et l'achat est recommandé à ceux qui aiment la musique noire américaine authentique, et peut prendre certains des sons les plus folkloriques et le blues acoustique.

Buck Owens turned Bakersfield, California into the epicenter of hip country music in the mid-1960s. All it took was a remarkable streak of number one singles that steamrolled right through Nashville with their electrified twang, forever changing the notion of what constituted country music and codifying the Bakersfield sound as hard-driving rhythms, trebly Telecasters and lean arrangements suited for honky tonks, beer joints and jukeboxes all across America. Half a century later, these remain sonic signifiers of Bakersfield, so the term no longer conveys a specific sounds, place and era—a situation the weighty Bear Family box The Bakersfield Sound: Country Music Capital Of The West 1940-1974 intends to rectify.

These 10 CDs will keep your ears busy picking out old and new favorites, and the accompanying book is a great read by itself. Ken Burns got it right on film, but the Bear Family’s taped archives are just as important and entertaining for capturing this era of country music history, as a standalone piece or an accompaniment.
Presse Archiv - Various Artists - The Bakersfield Sound 1940 - 1974 - bigtakeover.com
Anyone who cares about country music already knows Buck Owens and Merle Haggard, the superstars generally considered to epitomize the sound that emanated from Bakersfield in its heyday. Located about a hundred miles north of Los Angeles, the city spawned the music of those two greats, among a host of others, and for a time loomed as Nashville's biggest competitor.

Collecting almost 300 tracks on ten CDs, the amazing box set The Bakersfield Sound 1940-1974 is a staggering achievement by Scott B. Bomar and his supporting team. This ambitious archaeological triumph chronicles the work of everyone from high-profile hitmakers to vanity-label nobodies who had more optimism than talent. In the process, it shows that the driving honky tonk of Owens and Haggard was just part of the story. The Bakersfield sound could also mean raw field recordings, sentimental Nashville-style balladry, exuberant Western swing or even spirited rock'n'roll.

Rocks Etre en 1957 chez Sun pour y enregis-trer des plages de Rockabilly aurait dû permettre à Narvel Felts de faire partie de la cohorte légendaire d'adolescents devenus depuis des figures mythiques du Rock and roll. Or les fées sont par-fois cruelles et Sam Phillips ne jugea pas utile de publier les-dites sessions... Bear Family donne ici, en dehors des qualités propres de l'artiste. une typologie des tentatives d'émerger de Felts dans les années 50-70. L'objet vaut pour les contrastes de styles et de production. On passe ainsi du trio hillbilly rock très dépouillé à de la ballade sucrée pour teenager avec choristes et gimmicks pops. Très intéressante aussi la relec-ture du rockabilly des années 70, qui, par effet miroir, fait émerger les spécificités des arrangements originaux dans le son des guitares lead et la place de la batterie.
