Without compromises: Bear Family finally delivers the most comprehensive and competent review of the career of the country musician, rockabilly pioneer, songwriter, session musician and high-ranking A&R representative at Capitol Records in L.A..
Beginning in the late ’40s, he discovered Tennessee Ernie Ford and Hank Thompson, among others.
He himself recorded a large number of records for Capitol!
This CD provides the best selection of his recordings from 1947 to 1955, Western Swing, Hillbilly Boogie and Rock ‘n’ Roll.
With his bands and orchestras he accompanied a lot of colleagues like Tennessee Ernie Ford or Bob Roubian – also a discovery of Cliffie Stone – whose best Rock ‘n’ Roll numbers we present as well.
Extensive booklet with many photos and a carefully researched biography by Roland Heinrich.
