Presse Archiv - Various - That'll Flat Git It! Vol.32 - Vive Le Rock issue #65
VARIOUS ARTISTS THAT'LL FLAT GIT IT — VOL 32 (Bear Family) The burgeoning series keeps delivering. 8/10 The train keeps rolling on for Bear Family's long-running series and it shows no sign of slowing down let alone hitting the buffers. This is the series' fourth plundering of the Dec-ca, Coral and Brunswick rich seem of music. Of the 33 tracks the artists range from virtual unknowns like Dodie Randle who had their moment in the studio and vanished, her 'Man Hunt' is breathless and flushed like it should be, to three rumbustious Buddy Holly recordings from 1956 including 'Ting-A-Ling' a rockabilly stomper. This volume illustrates the musical experimentation that was taking place within the rock 'n' roll sphere, tracks here were recorded from New York to Nashville and LA, there was so much talent hitting pay dirt occasionally was a certainty, the downside some musical gold was missed in the melee too.

More amazing finds from the rockin' archive. 8/10 The series that keeps on giving gives again with volume 31, this time concen-trating on the rocking releases from the Colonial label from Chapel Hill, North Carolina. It's a mixture of obscurities, novelty tracks and hits that were eclipsed over time, most notable in that category Johnny Dee's 'Sittin' In The Balcony' which hit #38 in the Billboard charts before being usurped by a new-comer Eddie Cochran covering it for Liberty records and leapfrogged to #18, such was the way in the 1950s.

Teil Dreißig und kein Ende in Sicht! Erneut, wie bereits bei der ersten Ausgabe dieser Serie, hat Bear Family Records noch einmal tief in die Schatzkiste von RCA Victor Records gegriffen:
"Rockabilly & Rock ’n' Roll From The Vaults Of RCA Victor Records", so lautet der Untertitel dieses Mal. Und wieder geht es um Rockabilly und Rock’n’Roll, sodass viel Power zu erwarten ist. Das, ja, es war nicht anders zu erwarten, dicke Booklet (52 Seiten) verwöhnt auch hier mit reichlichen Informationen, jeder Künstler wird mit seinen Songs vorgestellt. Und so erfahre ich, dass bei dem energisch rockenden Opener "Get On The Right Track" von Joe Clay der damals viel beschäftigte Mickey Baker das kraftvolle Gitarren-Solo spielt. Neben diesem nicht ganz so bekannt gewordenen Künstler sind es eigentlich nur Anita Carter und Roy Orbison, deren Namen geläufig sind. Denn wer hat schon jemals von Otto Bash, Sammy Salvo, Tam Duffill, Autrey Inman oder Georgia Gibbs gehört?

The 29th installment of Bear Family's long-running rockabilly series That'll Flat Git It! shines a spotlight on Crest Records, a Hollywood-based imprint that opened its doors in 1954 and shuttered in 1963. Its lifespan ran the length of the big boom of rockabilly, but that didn't mean that Crest wound up scoring any big hits, but they did claim early recordings by Eddie Cochran and Glen Campbell. Cochran made his solo debut with "Skinny Jim," the best-known side here by a country mile, while Campbell plays lead guitar on "Rockin' and a Rollin'," a bit of a lark sung by his uncle Dick Bills.

Of course, what you didn't get previously was the superb sound quality and extensive sleeve notes you get with Bear Family. There's some absolutely seminal e rocking included here, with stand-outs including Tom Tall and the Tom g Cat's 'Stack A Records' and a young Eddie 'Summertime Blues' Cochran cutting loose with 'Skinny Jim'. What you also get for your hard-earned money is 32 stomping tracks with a 36-page booklet to fill you in on who's who. 60 years on and the vaults keep delivering. Simon Nott

Rock'n'roll was pioneered for the most part by independent labels, and Warner-Reprise was a major. However, it got its slice of the pie by buying rocking tracks from indies, and using its marketing power to produce hits.

It's 25 years since the first of this series and seven years since number 27. That's quite an achievement, considering rockabilly lasted the blink of an eye in the bigger musical scheme of things. This one is slightly different and could auger the continuation of the series, veering into what happened next.

Le pionnier Charlie Gracie est également présent avec « Cool Baby » tiré de la B.O. du film Jamboree. Les obscurités sont sou-vent savoureuses comme « Shimmy Shake » par Billy Land, parfait exemple de rock teenager, « The Monster Twist » par Tyrone A Saurus & His Cro-Magnons (!), « I Wanna Rock » (Johnny Sardo), « Monster Movie Bail » (Spike Jones) et » Drum Twist » par le bat-teur de studio virtuose Buddy Harman. La sélection des titres est parfaite et plonge dans la Californie du début des années 60. Quant au livret, rédigé par Bill Dahl. il four-mille d'anecdotes sur cette période charnière. Tony MARLOW
