Billy Harlan: Boppin' At Studio B (2x7inch)

(Muddy Roots Records) 6 tracks - double 7inch record set, gatefold cover with download card.

Billy Harlan has returned to the historic RCA Studio B after a 57 year hiatus thanks to the Country Music Hall of Fame & Muddy Roots Records!
In 1959 Billy recorded his own album after years of touring with Dave Rich, Jim Reeves and the Wilburn Brothers as a bass player, doing session work for Chet Atkins and writing songs for many others including Hawkshaw Hawkins. It was shelved which lead to Harlan leaving Nashville to pursue another career out west.

Billy returned to tour the studio in recent years to find a picture of himself with other musicians displayed in the entryway. When they found out he still performed live music in Kentucky and at rockabilly festivals worldwide they were excited to invite him back in to the studio to wrap up the unfinished business he had with Chet but this time with Muddy Roots Records.

We are truly honored to be able to work on this project with Billy, his band and the engineers at the studio. The album was recorded the old style, with all musicians performing together in one room showing us young whipper snappers how the pros did it 'back in the day'.

Billy Harlan

Billy Harlan did not become a Rockabilly star back in the 1950s.

Today we all know that he went straight from a sideman to a legend. After a glimpse at stardom in the late 1950s, Harlan experienced a lifetime of ordinary until he recently discovered fame among European fans he never knew he had.

Childhood

Born in Muhlenberg County, Kentucky, on March 24, 1937, Harlan can't remember a time he didn't sing. But there was a time when he thought he'd be a star. When Harlan was 9 years old, his sister bought him a guitar for 9 dollars. By the 10th grade he had his own radio show on WRUS in Russellville. He traveled the 40 miles from Muhlenberg County to Owensboro to play with his teenage band, The Melody Hands.

The songwriter

In 1955, the year Harlan graduated from Drakesboro Consolidated High School, he wrote a song called 'My Fate Is In Your Hands,' and Grand Ole Opry star Hawkshaw Hawkins recorded it. Harlan was still playing with The Melody Hands and writing songs when he got married at age 19. Working as a songwriter with Tree Publishing Co., along with a day job at a service station in Chicago´, when he got a call that Country star Jim Reeves needed a bass player. The job was only for three days but it turned into a full-time job, and Harlan played off and on for Reeves for three years.

The Singer

In 1958, he recorded his first 45 'I Wanna Bop,' b/w 'Schoolhouse Rock,' a twist on Elvis Presley's 'Jailhouse Rock,' for Brunswick Records. Sadly Harlan didn't get another release from Brunswick. But he was still doing road work and playing bass for Country superstars like George Jones and Ray Price. Then in 1959, Tree Publishing Co. secured a contract for him with RCA, and Chet Atkins produced the session in Nashville's famous studio B with songs called 'This Lonely Man' and 'Teen Jean Jive.' RCA never released it. Harlan got on a train heading for Arizona and didn't come back for 10 years. With his wife and first son, Harlan drifted out west. First, he was a carpenter apprentice, then moved to California to work in the space industry, and went to school to become a computer technician.

The big break

He moved to Louisville in 1968. It was time to come home. Soon after, he eased back into music, playing with a band called Sunny Watson and the Tradesmen. They played Catholic Church halls, weddings and Valentine's Day dances. He even wrote a song that ended up on the B side of Johnny Russell's album "Rednecks, White Socks and Blue Ribbon Beer."

Harlan got married to his second wife in 1972 and had two more sons, in 1977 and 1979.

But by then, Harlan had long given up the dream.

Late fame

It wasn't until 2010 that fame re-appeared. Out of the blue, Harlan received an email from Vegas organizer Tom Ingram who wanted him to play an event billed as the largest Rockabilly party in the world — the Viva Las Vegas Rockabilly Weekend.

When Harlan arrived, he got the surprise of his life: He had fans from all over the world. He had no idea that when he was playing church halls in the late 1970s and early 1980s there had been a resurgence in Rockabilly music's popularity.

Fans sang along to 'I Wanna Bop' but also to the songs RCA had never released. Bear Family Records had issued 'Teen Jean Jive" and "This Lonely Man" on a Rockabilly compilation album. Harlan stepped on stage, hit the key, started singing, and the band joined right in. He was age 75 and it was the first time since 1959 that he had seen such a crowd. But this time, they were there to see him.

Since the Las Vegas show, Harlan has played many festivals such as the Rockabilly Rave 2013 in England and the Nashville Boogie Weekender.

Now, he plays electric bass in the Benny Pryor Band every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday night.
