Duane Eddy: Twangin' From Phoenix To L.A. (5-CD)

5-CD boxed set (LP-size) with 84-page hardcover book, 148 tracks. Playing time approx 358 mns.

A truly epic 5-CD boxed set containing Duane Eddy's complete recordings for the Jamie label. This is one colossal hit-laden collection with 20 US and UK chart entries including Rebel Rouser, Cannonball, Peter Gunn, Yep, Forty Miles Of Bad Road, Some Kinda Earthquake, Shazam!, and Because They're Young. ,

There are 148 tracks including Eddy's first recording, Soda Fountain Girl by Jimmy (Delbridge) and Duane, pre-Jamie versions of Ramrod and Caravan and a clutch of rare vocal tracks by other artists all of which feature Eddy's unmistakeable low-down fretwork.

The fabulous hardback book contains minutely detailed and insightful essays by Rob Finnis and Phoenix-based music historian John P. Dixon together with a full discography by the set's original producer, the late and much-missed Bob Jones. The photos too are beyond exceptional. ,

Obsessive fans will relish the alternative takes in various overdubbed states and the fine array of items which were unissued prior to the first release of this magnificent collection in 1994. ,


Press:
“So if you want to hear this stuff at its best, accompanied by a selection of great period colour/b&,w photos, a new essay by Deke Petersen and all relevant session details, then this is a no-brainer.” ,

Duane Eddy

Duane Eddy is the original rock 'n' roll guitar hero. His 1950s guitar instrumentals like Rebel Rouser and Forty Miles Of Bad Road inspired countless kids to start playing the guitar, and many of rock music's icons list him as a major influence. His style is instantly recognizable, a bold statement of tone and attitude, a Spaghetti Western movie set to music.

 It is virtually impossible to overstate Duane's influence in the history of the electric guitar. The entire genre of 'guitar instrumentals' virtually began with, and was certainly defined by, Duane's oeuvre of instrumental hits. It's not hyperbole to say that if there were a Mount Rushmore for rock 'n' roll guitar players, Duane Eddy would be George Washington. This collection compiles Duane's best-known songs, along with a few surprises, for an album that truly 'rocks.'

Duane Eddy was born on the East Coast of America, in Corning, New York, on April 26, 1938. His childhood was spent in Corning and other upstate New York towns like Bath and Penn Yan, before his family moved to Tucson, Arizona, in 1951. A year later, the family moved to the small town of Coolidge, Arizona.

Duane fooled around with music from the age of five, when his father showed him a few chords on the guitar. When Duane was nine years old, his aunt bought him a lap steel guitar. After the move to Arizona, Duane continued to play both lap steel and the standard guitar. Country music was the biggest thing in Duane's musical world, and like many other up and coming guitar players, he loved the thumbpick-and-fingers style playing of Chet Atkins and Merle Travis.

Duane's father managed the local Safeway grocery store in Coolidge, having transferred there from a similar job in Tucson. A local disc jockey got into a conversation with Duane's father one day and learned that Duane was an aspiring guitarist, so the disc jockey offered to record Duane at the station, which the jock played on the radio and announced as being by local boy Duane Eddy.

When Duane's rendition of Chet Atkins' Spinning Wheel aired on the station one Monday morning, a young man Duane's age named Jimmy Delbridge (aka Jimmy Dell) came running up to Duane at school, and asked him to come over and play some music with him later in the afternoon, after school.

Duane joined Delbridge (and his brother Bill Delbridge on banjo, and Duane's friend Ed Myers on rhythm guitar) and began playing local dances a few weeks later as Jimmy & Duane, The Coolidge Kids.

Ed Myers, rhythm guitarist in the group, had an interest in becoming a radio disc jockey, so he went around to the local station WCKY looking for advice on how to break into the business. In doing so, Myers met a disc jockey named Lee Hazlewood, then an up-and-coming disc jockey fresh from broadcasting school in California.

The beginning of Duane Eddy's musical career is irrevocably intertwined with that of Lee Hazlewood. The Oklahoma-born Hazlewood was nine years older than Duane, and after studying broadcasting in California had come to Arizona to disc jockey on radio station KCKY. Hazlewood was a minor celebrity of sorts in Coolidge, known for his on-air personality Eb X. Preston, a character he used to exchange on-air banter with himself while announcing records.

After Myers met Hazlewood and introduced Duane to him, Lee and Duane became friends, and Hazlewood became the informal manager of Jimmy & Duane. Hazlewood soon thereafter drove Jimmy and Duane up to Phoenix to be on a talent show there that Ray Odom presented on Saturday nights at the Madison Square Garden, a boxing venue in Phoenix. A year later, Hazlewood took a disc jockey gig on KRUX in Phoenix, and later KTYL. Phoenix was a major metropolitan area, especially compared to sleepy Coolidge, and offered many more opportunities.


After the Phoenix show proved successful, Jimmy and Duane realized that Phoenix offered much greater opportunities than Coolidge. Soon thereafter Hazlewood took Jimmy & Duane into a studio in Phoenix called Ambassador Recording, and cut two Lee Hazlewood-penned songs with the group, Soda Fountain Girl and I Want Some Lovin' Baby. Duane recalls that the studio was a tiny studio in the back of somebody's house, and that Lee hired Buddy Long and his Melody Boys to be on the session.

Customer evaluation for "Twangin' From Phoenix To L.A. (5-CD)"
14 Jul 2018

Outstanding!

I never saw myself ordering a music set from Germany, but it was well worth it. Outstanding website, great service and communication, well-packaged, and I appreciated the tracking link, which I used anxiously until I received it. Love the Duane Eddy cd box/book set! Thanks for having it available.

13 Mar 2014

Das Buch im LP-Format informiert über die Umstände der Aufnahmen detailliert, die CDs bezeugen die harten, bisweilen messerscharfen Riffs von Duane in gewohnt hoher Qualität.

Press - Duane Eddy - Twangin' From Phoenix To L.A. - Classic Cuts June 2012
Press - Duane Eddy Twangin' From Phoenix To L.A. (5-CD) Classic Cuts June 2012 Duane Eddy was immensely influential as a musi- cian. His electric guitar instrumentals forged an entire rock guitar cul- ture.As an artist in his own right, he was immensely success- ful totalling fifteen hits in five years from 1958 to 1963 while his Peter Gunn single continues to express an iconic sound that was much covered by many of the early beat groups in the early sixties, as well as more contemporary outfits such as The Art Of Noise (with Eddy guesting on guitar, no-less) and Emerson Lake and Palmer. Eddy – obviously a frustrated audiophile – talked about the origination of that ‘twang’,“When I first went into the studio in the fifties, I learned that the bass strings recorded better than the high strings. They were more powerful and more gutsy. So that’s how I came up with the sound. I had to be careful not to overplay. [If you do] It runs together and takes away a lot of the feeling and direction. I had this amp that was more powerful than any on the market at the time. It didn’t actually make it louder but it made the sounds clearer.” This new release from German- based Bear Family (www.bear-family. de) includes all of the tracks recorded for the Jamie label, by Eddy, including Peter Gunn, but also others such as Rebel Rouser, Cannonball and Yep.
