1-CD DigiPac (4-plated) with 76-page booklet, 32 tracks. Total playing time approx. 72 minutes.

•    Rediscover the first family of West Coast country, bop, rockabilly, and pop!
•    Most tracks released on CD for the first time, including eight that have never been released on any format until now!
•    Detailed liner notes with in-depth biographical information culled from all-new interviews with the Cokers.

California's Coker Family is best remembered for two rockabilly classics of the 1950s: patriarch Alvis Coker's Don't Go Baby (Don't Go) and his daughter Alvadean's We're Gonna Bop. Both songs were written by Alvis' wife, Geraldine, who played bass in the family band. With son Sandy on guitar and fiddle, daughter Linda on piano, and youngest daughter Carolyn on vocals and percussion, the six members of the Coker Family were a popular staple of the rockabilly-infused West Coast country scene of the mid-1950s. Alvadean and Sandy were regular performers on the influential 'Town Hall Party,' and the Cokers – in various incarnations – recorded a total of 30 songs for both the Abbott label in Los Angeles and the Decca label in Nashville.

Ranging from hillbilly, to rockabilly, to early pop-country, the Coker recordings are a fascinating snapshot of an era of rapid changes in the world of popular music. Their revved-up collaborations with Jim Reeves, Floyd Cramer, Hank Garland and other legendary luminaries of country music are included in this collection, which gathers the family's complete studio output for the first time. You'll hear more than 25 songs that have never been released on CD. Of these, eight have not previously been released to the public on any format! As a bonus, you'll hear an alternate take of Alvadean's rockabilly classic, We’re Gonna Bop!

Nearly six decades later, the Coker Family's recordings still retain the energy and vibrancy that made them so appealing to live audiences in the mid-1950s. With detailed liner notes by Scott B. Bomar, in-depth biographical details about the Cokers based on several all-new interviews with the family, and a plethora of unseen photos from the Cokers' personal archives, this lovingly curated collection is a treasure trove of forgotten gems just waiting to be rediscovered by fans of 1950s rockabilly and country!

Klassische Country Songs, Country Bop und Rockabilly

Die Cokers waren eine musikalische Familie aus Bakersfield, bestehend aus Vater Alvis, Mutter Geraldine und den Kindern Alvidine und Sandy, dann kamen noch Linda und Carolyn dazu. Die Familie siedelte Mitte der Vierziger nach Kalifornien um und machte aus ihren
musikalischen Talenten keinen Hehl. Sie bekamen eine tägliche Radioshow bei KTRB in Modesto und waren schließlich ständige Gäste der "Town Hall Party". In Hollywood entsanden 1954 erste Plattenaufnahmen für das Abbott Label mit Alvadean (wie sich jetzt
nannte) und Sandy. Im Juli kam dann die ganze Familie im eigenen Hause zu den nächsten Aufnahmen zusammen, die ebenfalls auf Abbott veröffentlicht wurden, eine Single unter dem Namen Sandy Coker, eine unter Alvadean Coker.
Im Februar 1955 entstand ein Duett mit Jim Reeves ("Are You The One"), der auch bei Abbott unter Vertrag stand und unter dem Namen Alvadean & The Cokers wurden die Titel "We're Gonna Bop" und "Do Dee Oodle Dee Do" herausgebracht. Ein Jahr später wurden
sie von Decca unter Vertrag genommen und die nächsten Songs, darunter "Don't Go Baby erschienen unter dem Namen Al Coker with the Coker Family. Bis 1957 folgten weitere Einspielungen, auch unter dem Namen Sandy Coker.
Diese CD enthält alle Aufnahmen der Coker Familie in den verschiedenen Besetzungen für Abbott und Decca, darunter auch neun unveröffentlichte. Klassische Country Songs, Country Bop und Rockabilly. Ein 72-seitiges Booklet beantwortet alle erdenklichen Fragen, enthält viele Fotos und die komplette Discografie - perfekt.
