Eddie Bond: Eddie Bond - Rocks (CD)

1-CD (Digipak) with 36-page booklet, 35 tracks. Total playing time approx. 70 min.

  • Eddie Bond Rocks! 35-track CD on Bear Family Records® contains the very essence of Memphis rockabilly. 
  • 14 recordings from Bond's ‘50s career (recorded for Ekko, Mercury and Sun/PI), 15 tracks recorded for Millionaire, Stomper Time etc. in the ‘60s, and six songs from his rockabilly revival years of the 1970s.
  • The booklet contains a detailed biography by Martin Hawkins based on interviews with Eddie Bond a.o., full session details and phenomenal period photos.
  • Carefully re-mastered from original master copies and reliable sources.

Very few singers had a better rocking pedigree than Eddie Bond. He was born in Memphis, so when he made his first discs in 1955 and 1956 he was at the epicenter of the new rockabilly sounds. He became identified as the ‘rockin' daddy from ding dong Tennessee’ described in his best-selling disc. 
Through 1956 to 1959, Bond was hot stuff, playing shows with Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and all the other singers from Memphis whose music spoke to a whole new generation.

Eddie Bond (1933-2013) started and ended as a country singer, but his bands always contained musicians who could play rockabilly with the best of them. From his first sessions to his last Eddie always chose to record some rocking songs. His Mercury discs with Reggie Young on guitar were classics of the rockabilly style. Later, Eddie became a Memphis disc jockey, night club owner, record label owner, and more.

This rocking 35-track CD contains the very essence of Memphis rockabilly. Here are 14 recordings from Eddie Bond's 1950s career (recorded by Ekko, Mercury and Sun/PI), 15 tracks recorded for his own and other local labels (Millionaire, Stomper Time etc.) in the 1960s, and 6 recordings from his rockabilly revival years of the 1970s when he became a favorite visitor to Europe. These are all high-quality rocking performances. 

The booklet contains a detailed biography by Martin Hawkins based on interviews with Eddie Bond and others, full session details and some phenomenal period photos.

His obituary in the ‘Memphis Commercial Appeal’ said: ‘Mr. Bond was many things: a sharp wheeler-dealer with a silver tongue; a canny trend-watcher with a keen eye for talent, a slicked-back rockabilly cat with a country heart.’
So, in other words, Eddie Bond rocks!

Eddie Bond

EDDIE BOND has never quite picked up the record company veneer. Sitting in his Memphis office, or an English pub, he still looks like the sort of heavy Southern lawman who'd bang you up for dropping a sweet wrapper. Eddie James Bond learned to rock in Memphis where he was born on July 1, 1933. He grew up with country music acquiring a taste for Roy Acuff and Ernest Tubb. After a stint in the Navy, he formed his first band, the Stompers, during the early '50s choosing Reggie Young (lead guitar), John Hughey (steel guitar) and a blind pianist, Jimmy Smith. They were rejected by Sam Phillips who thought Bond's voice lacked character. In 1955 Bond made a couple of country records for Ekko and it's likely that these brought him to the attention of D.Kilpatrick who signed him to Mercury in 1956. We've chosen Rockin' Daddy (a cover of Sonny Fisher's Starday classic), Flip Flop Mama (a Bond original), Boppin' Bonnie (written by Charlie Feathers's associates, Jody Chastain and Jerry Huffman), and Slip, Slip, Slippin' In from the pen of Bob Belyeu who wrote Honey Stop for Faron Young and Lonesome Train for Johnny T. Talley. Belyeu's song was also recorded by Lou Millet, a C&W singer turned rockabilly whose ferocious version on the Republic label has been valued at $1000 plus. All four of Bond's tracks are blessed with the definitive hot rockabilly guitar playing of Reggie Young who competes with John Hughey's steel on Rockin' Daddy, contributes two sizzling breaks to the other titles and more than compensates for the characterless nature of Bond's voice. Scotty Moore referred to Young's prowess in an interview with Trevor Cajiao: "Reggie was playing real good and then he went into the army, and when he came out...Lord ! He was scalding! Just had a lot of time to practice I reckon". Sam Phillips turned Bond down again in 1958 but eventually relented. Bond's career took other surprising twists and turns. In 1973 he devoted an album to Buford Pusser, Tennessee's rugged symbol of law enforcement whose harrowing story was told in the movie,'Walking Tall'. Eventually, Bond became one of the rockabilly glitterati, feted in Britain and the rest of Europe. His Ekko, Mercury and Sun/Phillips International recordings have been gathered up on 'Rockin' Daddy' (Bear Family BCD 15708).

The Rockin' Daddy!

By placing the spots on Eddie Bond in the 'Rocks' series, Bear Family Records pays tribute to a rockabilly artist who is only known to many through the song 'Rockin' Daddy'. However, Eddie had more to his advantage. High time to appreciate his other songs as well.
