Press Archiv - Fats Domino - Teenageparty with Mr. Domino - Ugly Things
FATS DOMINO–Teenage Party with Mr Domino (Bear Family) 10" The Ballads of Fats Domino (Bear Family) CD The 10" LP Teenage Party with Mr Domino is a reissue of a 1963 Netherlands release freshly pressed onto gold vinyl. A well-chosen blend of early rock ditties circa 1953-1962, it is entertaining and concise. Some million sellers are here: The stomp-ing "I'm Walkin'," the teen appeal working man's lament "Blue Monday," the countryish tribute to a varmint "Bo Weevil," and the plead-ing R&B of"Please Don't Leave Me." However, this 10-song disc mainly works because of the less famous ]racks, Domino's 1962 allusion to „idninY Jones's "Handy Man," "MY Real Name," is a happy boast. The lost love song "It Keeps rifling," features a trilling guitar Hre and trumpets instead of s.. sound is further updated on the lawful "Rockin' Bicycle" where '",kne not only smartly double-Ceics his vocal on the chorus but . down some nasty piano bogie the middle.


Press Archive - Buddy Holly Countrywise - Vintage Rock
BUDDY HOLLY COUNTRYWISE BEAR FAMILY VINYL CLUB 0000 Before he achieved stardom, Buddy Holly was a struggling country artist in Lubbock, Texas, singing duets with his pal Bob Montgomery. They taped some of their fledgling efforts in 1954-55; those recordings ended up in the hands of Holly's subsequent producer Norman Petty, who overdubbed the Fireballs on them after Holly's death and released them on Coral Records. A rare compilation of those tracks was issued as Countrywise in 1965, and an immaculately realised repressing is one of the latest offerings from Bear Family Vinyl Club.
