Ric Cartey: Oooh-Eee - The Complete Ric Cartey Featuring The Jiv-A-Tones, plus (CD)

1-CD with 24-page booklet, 32 tracks. Total playing time: 75:16 mns.

Career-spanning compilation contains everything Ric Cartey cut for RCA Victor, NRC, El Rico, and ABC-Paramount, including his immortal Young Love and his many rockabilly classics
Also contains pop chart-topping covers of Young Love by Sonny James and Tab Hunter and original versions of several other rare rockers that Ric Cartey covered
Contains ultra-rare rocking singles on the Fox and Fraternity labels by The Jiv-A-Tones, Ric Cartey's one-time backing band, and Jiv-A-Tones leader Charlie Broome's impossibly hard-to-find early '60s solo single on O.E.K.
Voluminous liner notes by Bill Dahl include in-depth interviews with The Jiv-A-Tones' Charlie Broome and Dean Stevens
A long-overdue retrospective of one of Atlanta's earliest rockers
When Ric Cartey waxed the melodic ballad for the fledgling Stars, Inc. label in 1956 in Atlanta with guitarist Charlie Broome’s Jiv-A-Tones in musical support, no one could have foretold that not one but two covers of Young Love Ric had written with his friend Carole Joyner would top the national hit parade in February of the following year. ,

Whaley Thomas Cartey was another of Atlanta’s young musical hopefuls, born there on January 18, 1937. Ric and guitarist Charlie Broome formed a musical partnership early on. Ric and The Jiva-Tones (as Stars, Inc. spelled their name on the label) recorded Young Love in 1956. For a rocking flip, Ric Cartey grabbed hold of Oooh-Eeee, a romping number that Chuck Atha had already waxed earlier that year. It was written by local guitar whiz Jerry Reed, who supplied hot licks on Ric’s version. ,

Capitol country artist Sonny James covered Young Love. The production was crisper than Ric Cartey’s original, an Sonny’s version took off like a rocket, not just with the C&,W market but in the pop arena as well. But he had to contend with a straight pop rendition of the song by handsome young actor and neophyte singer Tab Hunter on the cover-obsessed Dot label. ,

When the smoke cleared, both James and Hunter had scored number one U.S. pop smashes with their respective renditions of Young Love in consecutive weeks of February of 1957. Cartey would have to content himself with having written a #1 hit for two other singers instead of enjoying one with his own rendition.

Cartey and The Jiv-A-Tones wouldn’t stick together after Young Love became an international sensation. Ric’s RCA Victor encore single doesn’t credit The Jiv-A-Tones on the label, but Jerry Reed was in charge of the dazzling lead guitar on both sides, this time wielding an acoustic axe. He wrote the rollicking vocal group-backed I Wancha To Know, sporting a particularly wild vocal from Ric Cartey. Then RCA Victor sent Ric  ,Cartey up to Nashville to work with producer Chet Atkins. On March 29, 1957, Atkins convened Reed and Jack Eubanks on guitars, A-Team bassist Bob Moore, drummer Jeff Richards, and a male vocal group, The Sunshine Quartet, for Ric’s first Music Row session. RCA sat on both of Ric  ,Cartey’s originals from the date, Gotta Be Love and the ballad Crying Goodbye, but the label thought enough of the remaining two songs to press them up as a single. Let Me Tell You About Love, an easy-going rocker was written by Joe South. The flip side of Ric’s single, a determined Born To Love One Woman, was a cover of a then–current single by newcomer Don Johnston on Mercury. Atkins tried again with Cartey on July 15 of ’57. Two songs Ric waxed that day were covers of tough Chicago blues songs. Willie Dixon’s My Babe was a 1955 R&,B chart-topper for Little Walter and lent itself well to the rockabilly idiom. Aided by a typically vicious Reed guitar break, Cartey did the tune justice. The Dixon-penned Mellow Down Easy similarly suited to Cartey’s rockabilly approach, slashing lead guitar careening around the studio behind him. RCA teamed them as Ric’s last single for the label.

Ric Cartey scored a fresh recording contract with Lowery’s fledgling NRC label in 1958. His Scratching On My Screen was a romping variation on Washboard Sam’s pre-war blues Diggin’ My Potatoes. Ric seems to have been quite the blues fan. The relaxed flip My Heart Belongs To You rode a similar echo-laden percussive background. But NRC didn’t ask Cartey back for an encore. So he decided to form his own El Rico label. Ric scribed a sweet ballad, To Love, that was vaguely reminiscent of Young Love melodically as Ric crooned its eternal message of devotion. You’re My Happiness, an engaging upbeat item sat on the other side. ,
There were three El Rico singles, he revisited Mellow Down Easy and trotted out a new original, Leave Me Loose, both sides rocking hard. ,
 ,
Somehow Ric Cartey managed the to make a one-off single for ABC-Paramount in 1963. Poor Me was set at an infectious mid-tempo pace. Something In My Eye was bright and breezy. But Ric  ,Cartey wouldn’t be asked back to make another ABC single.

Later on, Ric was working as a booking agent. The steady writer’s royalties from Young Love that once offered some consolation for not scoring his own hit with the song ensured that Ric Cartey wouldn’t encounter money problems in decades to come—especially when other artists kept scoring hits with his creation. Connie Smith and Nat Stuckey, Donny Osmond, Ray Stevens, Tommy Steele from the UK, Frankie Avalon, The Lettermen, Lesley Gore, Mary Hopkin, and plenty more tried Young Love on for size too. ,

Whaley Thomas Cartey died August 5, 2009 in Palm Harbor, Florida. Ric will always be remembered for his seminal creation, but this compilation proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that there was a great deal more to his extended legacy than that. ,

Ric Cartey

 

Two versions—not one, mind you, but two--of Ric Cartey’s first recorded composition topped the pop hit parade in early 1957. Ric’s own rendition of Young Love, which he’d written with fellow teenager Carole Joyner, wasn’t one of them. The honors went instead to country singer Sonny James and neophyte pop crooner Tab Hunter. That didn’t stop Cartey from subsequently cutting enough solid rockers for RCA Victor, NRC, and his own El Rico label.

Cartey was one of the first young singers on Atlanta’s rock and roll scene, which would also encompass Jerry Reed, Ray Stevens, Joe South, Tommy Roe, and Mac Davis. Born there on January 18, 1937, Whaley Thomas Cartey found a kindred musical spirit in guitarist Charlie Broome, the two performing locally as a duo. “When Ric and I started, we actually didn’t have a name,” says Broome. “It was just Ric and Charlie, Ric Cartey and Charlie Broome. And we went down the beach. But we actually weren’t doing really what you consider professional jobs there. I mean, we were playing down at the beach, and we’d always attract a crowd and everything. And then it just sort of grew.”

Broome dreamed up the distinctive guitar introduction to Young Love. “‘Young Love’ was written in the music room of my parents’ house and grandparents’ house,” he says. “(Carole) wrote this nice poem, which was the song, and Ric put it to music.” Ric and Charlie’s band, The Jiva-Tones (as their name was spelled on the record label) cut Young Love for local broadcast personality Bill Lowery’s new Stars, Inc. record label in 1956 at a country radio station in Decatur, Ga. On the other side sat the blistering rocker Oooh-Eeee. It was written by Jerry Reed, who supplied the hot guitar licks as he had on Chuck’s Atha’s original for Stars, Inc. “On ‘Oooh-Eeee,’ Jerry was playing the electric, and I was playing the (rhythm),” says Broome of Cartey’s version.

Capitol Records A&R man Ken Nelson had James cover Young Love, and Hunter then covered James for Dot. As both versions sailed up the pop charts. RCA acquired Ric’s original from Lowery for national consumption, but Cartey somehow avoided hit status. Ric and the Jiv-A-Tones soon parted ways; the band would spread lead vocals between Broome and new guitarists Dean Stevens and Bill Holden, soon cutting a rocking 1957 single pairing Fire Engine Baby and Flirty Gertie on Lowery’s Fox logo and then the vicious instrumental The Wild Bird for Fraternity.

Victor hung with its new acquisition, issuing Ric’s Atlanta-cut encore. Reed wrote the highly animated I Wancha To Know as one side of Cartey’s encore, returning to supply dazzling acoustic lead guitar. For his tweaking of the lyrics, Jerry earned half-authorship on the pulsing flip Heart Throb, splitting credit with Alabama-born Tommy Spurlin, who had waxed the number for Harold Doane’s Miami-based Perfect Records (Doane archived it).

RCA sent Cartey to Nashville in March of ’57 to work with producer Chet Atkins (Reed remained his lead guitarist, sharing fret duties with Jack Eubanks). Joe South was doing business under his birth surname of Souter when he penned Let Me Tell You About Love, an easy-going rocker that could have suited Sanford Clark. The flip side of Ric’s single, Born To Love One Woman, was a cover of a single by newcomer Don Johnston on Mercury. Don later changed his first name to Bob, snagged a staff producing gig at Columbia, and helmed classics for Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan, and Johnny Cash. RCA vaulted Cartey’s original Gotta Be Love from the same date.

Atkins brought Cartey back to Music Row that July to cut his RCA farewell single with Reed and Eubanks again manning the guitars and newcomer Ray Ragsdale added on piano (you know him better as Ray Stevens). Both sides of Ric’s last RCA release were covers of Chicago blues classics by harmonica genius Little Walter on the Checker imprint. My Babe, a 1955 R&B chart-topper for Walter, was Willie Dixon’s secular adaptation of the gospel theme This Train; the Dixon-penned Mellow Down Easy had immediately preceded it on Walter’s release slate.

Cartey gravitated over to Lowery’s recently established NRC label in 1958 to wax Scratching On My Screen, a romping variation on Washboard Sam’s 1939 blues Diggin’ My Potatoes for Bluebird Records. Ric seems to have been a Chicago blues fan. He later revisited Mellow Down Easy on his own El Rico label with more of an R&B feel, issuing it under the concise alias of Rex (no last name).

Although Young Love was Cartey’s calling card for the rest of his life (he died August 5, 2009 in his adopted hometown of Palm Harbor, Florida), he left us a legacy filled with rollicking rockabilly.

Echtes Muss!

" Das bei Sammlern, Musikliebhabern und Raritätenjägern weltweit geschätzte Label Bear Family aus Norddeutschland ist eine Plattenfirma, die sich vor allem mit Veröffentlichungen wie dieser einen guten Namen erworben hat. RIC CARTEY war ein 1937 in Atlanta, Georgia geborener und am 5. August 2009 in Palm Harbor, Florida verstorbener Rockabilly-Sänger, der mit dem Sonny James-Hit „Young Love“ Mitte der 50er Jahre seinen größten Erfolg als Songschreiber feiern konnte. Auf der in gewohnter „Bären-Qualität“ (die CD kommt mit 48-seitigem Booklet) veröffentlichten Zusammenstellung Oooh-Eee! findet man nicht nur diese Aufnahme von James, sondern auch jene Cover-Version des jungen Sängers und Schauspielers Tab Hunter, der damit Platz 1 in den Pop-Charts erobern konnte. Nur zwei von elf Bonus-Tracks, die man der mit 21 Ric Cartey-Originalen bestückten Kompilation spendiert hat. Damit bekommen Fans und Rockabilly-Liebhaber endlich sämtliche Aufnahmen in kompakter Form an die Hand, die Cartey solo oder mit den Jiv-A-Tones für RCA Victor, NRC und El Rico eingespielt hat. Mit dabei auch die beiden Songs „Poor Me“ und „Something In My Eye“, die als (einzige) Single 1963 von ABC-Paramount veröffentlicht wurden. Cartey gehörte zu den großen Talenten des Rockabilly, der sich lange Zeit grämte, dass andere Künstler mit seinem Song „Young Love“ weitaus größere Erfolge hatten als er selbst. Allerdings sorgten die ihm zugehenden Tantiemen jahrzehntelang für ein finanziell sorgenfreies Leben. Diese an einen der frühesten Rocker aus Atlanta erinnernde CD mag zwar ein sogenanntes Nischenprodukt sein, für Rockabilly-Liebhaber aber ist sie ein echtes Muss für deren Sammlung.
