Glen Glenn: Pick 'Em Up And Lay 'Em Down (LP, 10inch)

‘Glen Glenn is a name held in high esteem by rockabilly fans and was a second generation artist who developed his own style’.

12 recordings from the Era label catalog, 1955–1963.
Contains different versions from the originally released records.
10“LP.
       Information and liner notes from Deke Dickerson.
Carefully restored and mastered for our high-quality 10“ LP series.

Glen Glenn and Gary Lambert had to wait until the 1980s for the new generation of fans to pay homage to them and ecstatically dance to their three Era label releases issued under Glen’s name, and it is these recordings on which their reputation is firmly cemented. In the year 2018 Bear Family Records offer, twelve recordings, with many significantly different versions to the issued recordings. The sleeve contains the 110 gram vinyl, 10 inch album,  and fascinating information from scribe Deke Dickerson.

To give you a taste of some of the recordings and what to expect. The story beings in 1955, with the earliest recording which Glen made with his long time musical partner Gary Lambert, who sadly passed away on January 12, 2018. The Glen and Gary sessions include a recording from Glen’s cousin Porter Wagoner, Company’s Comin’, and we decided upon the lesser heard take two of It Rains Rain which was recorded with the core of Wynn Stewart’s band in 1956. Certainly they were still in the country side of music, however they had a changing sound in development.

Rose Maddox had gone solo and her brothers Henry and Fred took Glen under their wing and from this association two country recordings from 1957 are offered You’re Not Mine and Ray Price’s I Made A Mistake And I’m Sorry. This musical association resulted in Glen changing his style and immersing himself into rockabilly music, which our next recording perfectly testify.

The six recordings for the Era label have an enticing quality, and Glen’s country edged vocals fitted perfectly to rockabilly music, and together with Gary’s guitar they created something a little different. The Goldstar Studio echo and reverb are used to perfection, producing the ’crème de la crème’ of recordings which have excited music fans for many decades. However as always from Bear Family we offer on this album something a little different.
The album includes an alternative and slightly faster version of One Cup Of Coffee (take 1), and after three false starts Gary perfects the introduction, and the resulting Would Ya, has a rugged feel embellished with a more driving tempo than the issued version. For collectors we offer two rockabilly classics in development, Everybody's Movin (take 2), and Blue Jeans And A Boy's Shirt (take 2), the former has a faster tempo and is not as tight as the issued version. The latter is a looser work in progress version, and sans the later over-dubs which were added on the released version. Tape exploration furthermore located stereo versions of Kitty Kat and Wait Wait (One Year Longer) and both see the light of day on this album.

Our album ends its musical legacy in 1963 with two performances from a demo session held at Gary Lambert’s house. Both I Think of Somethin’ Funny and My Eyes Are Open move in direction towards West Coast honky tonk and country amalgamation, a style which was in its infancy. 
As always with Bear Family you will hear the best possible sound from our products, and within this album you hear Glen’s voice and Gary’s guitar in a clarity you need to hear. This is an album which rockabilly fans have been waiting for and a perfect tribute to Glen’s long-time partner Gary Lambert.

Artist description "Glenn, Glen"

Glen Glenn

Glen Glenn, born Glen Troutman in 1934 in Missouri, is one of the great original rockabilly artists of the 1950s. His Everybody's Movin' has been a dance floor favorite in the scene for decades, and his 1950s recorded output has been reissued extensively, with numerous compilation albums on CD and vinyl (including the great 'Glen Rocks!' CD on Bear Family).
Incredibly, Bear Family has put together this ten-inch album of interesting songs some never issued before and rare alternate takes, for a fresh look at Glen's legacy of hillbilly boogie, rockabilly, and hardcore honky-tonk country music.


The earliest tracks on here are demos from early 1955, recorded when the act was known as 'Glen and Gary - The Missouri Mountain Boys,' including his long time guitar-playing compatriot Gary Lambert. Company's Comin' was a 1954 hit for Glen's cousin Porter Wagoner, and here Glen and Gary give it a youthful spin that prove these were two California country kids who flirted dangerously with rockabilly before it was ever known as such.


Still imagining himself a country singer, Glen cut some excellent hard honky-tonk country demos in September 1956 with Gary Lambert on guitar and the core of Wynn Stewart's band (Ralph Mooney on steel guitar, Johnny Mosby on bass, and Helen 'Peaches' Price on drums). It Rains Rain, a Pete Stamper composition, is included here, and we've picked the lesser heard take two.
At the beginning of 1957, Glen and Gary cut more demo material at Black Jack Wayne's studio in the San Francisco area with Henry Maddox and Fred Maddox of The Maddox Brothers in the group. From this session we've included You're Not Mine and Glen's cover of Ray Price's I Made A Mistake And I'm Sorry. By this time Glen and Gary were splitting their energies between country and rock and roll, touring with the Maddox Brothers, showcased during the rock and roll segment of their show, introduced by Fred Maddox as "Glen Trout The Stinkin' Fisherman," a play on Johnny Horton's nickname 'The Singing Fisherman.'


The core of Glen's legacy has always been the three flawless 45s that he cut for Era Records, all released during 1958. These songs have been reissued over and over and on any night somewhere in the world a rockabilly group is covering one of those six songs. We've hand picked several alternate takes of these classic numbers to include on this album.
One Cup Of Coffee (And A Cigarette) included here is the first take, never issued before, and you can hear Glen, Gary and the band still working out the arrangement. In comparison to the 45 release, this version is faster and more spontaneous. Similarly, we've included an early, raucous take of Would Ya, along with some interesting studio chatter and false starts.
Glen Troutman, aka 'Glen Trout The Stinkin' Fisherman' was drafted into the Army, along with Gary Lambert, and stationed on Hawaii before his classic Era 45s were released.

When Everybody's Movin' came out, Glen was as surprised as anybody to find out his name had been changed to Glen Glenn by the record company.
It would be difficult to have a Glen Glenn release without his classic Everybody's Movin'. Not wanting to disappoint the fans, we've included take two, a very peppy, uptempo take compared to the slow burn of the released 45 version. Everybody's Movin', as Glen will tell you, has been covered by a huge number of artists, "even Bobby Dylan!" as he puts it.


Glen's third release on Era was the classic Blue Jeans And A Boy's Shirt, and we've included another rare alternate take here (take two), that shows Gary Lambert still working out the nuances of the solo, and an overall looser feel than the 45 version. This take was released with added overdubbed instruments and vocals in 1975, but we've included the raw original track here.
After the classic three Era singles, a fourth single was recorded at Webley Edwards studio in Hawaii (near where Glen and Gary were stationed at Scofield Barracks) and sent to Los Angeles for background overdubbing and mastering. The single, Kitty Kat (written by Glen and Gary's good friend Glenn Mueller), backed with Wait Wait (One Year Longer), never gained release in the 1950s, but has been reissued on numerous compilations over the years. Until now, however, the stereo version has never seen the light of day, in fact no one even knew it existed.


When Gold Star Studios went out of business in the 1980s, a Los Angeles collector came into possession of stacks of Gold Star tapes, mostly commercials, demos, and odd, unreleased things. In that stack of tapes, inexplicably, were true stereo mixes of Kitty Kat and Wait Wait (One Year Longer). Thankfully, these stereo versions have finally seen the light of day on this album release.
Despite having two more single releases on Dore Records in the early 1960s, Glen and Gary never found the chart success they had been searching for at the time (it would take the rockabilly revival and a whole new crop of young fans to revive their careers in the 1980s).


Glen and Gary continued performing into the early 1960s, and the last two songs we've included on this set come from a demo session at Gary Lambert's house in 1963. Both I Think of Somethin' Funny and My Eyes Are Open are great unissued performances that show the changing sound of the West Coast country style during that era. Gary sounds less like Chet Atkins or Merle Travis on these tracks, with more Don Rich and James Burton influence on his playing, and Glen sings with more of the hard country inflection in his voice than he had since the demos they cut in the mid-1950s.
Glen Glenn and Gary Lambert reunited in the 1980s, playing tons of shows in California and at festivals across America and Europe, playing the rockabilly tracks that the kids wanted to hear to an eager young audience of rockabilly fans. The pair performed together through the 1990s. Glen in particular seemed to savor his place in the history of rockabilly and West Coast country music. Fans would seek him out, and Glen would show them tons of his old scrapbook photos, and tell stories about the good old days.
Now, sixty years after they were recorded, Bear Family does it - with a fresh, new album of Glen Glenn rarities. Let's "pick `ern up and lay 'em down!"
