Bob Luman: Bob Luman - Bob Rocks

1 CD-Album Digipac with 84-page booklet,  Rock'n'Roll,  tracks 36, playing time approx. 77:47.


Contains a generous 36 tracks: the equivalent of a two-CD set
Presents the best of Bob Luman 'rockin' sides 
Contains rare Texas demos and originally unissued Imperial and Capitol tracks from 1957 and '58
A feast for guitar fans, featuring the work of legendary pickers like James Burton, Eddie Cochran and Roy Buchanan
Offers Bear Family's critically acclaimed sound quality – these original tapes have never sounded so good!


Bob Luman - Big, good looking, a fine singer, and a hell of an entertainer. Women loved him and men admired him. Bob Luman had it all. 

Bob Luman's entire recording career has been documented by Bear Family Records on two critically acclaimed box sets and a DVD of vintage performances. Now, the rockin' best of these two sets is available on a single CD, drawn largely from Bob Luman's earliest years. These tracks – including originally unissued material - offer ample proof of why Bob Luman is an icon to rockabilly collectors today.

You'll hear not only the finest in Bob Luman's virile vocals, including his biggest hit Let's Think About Living, but also the stunning lead guitar work by the legendary James Burton. Sample the performances that led fellow Imperial Records artist Ricky Nelson to wrestle Bob Luman's band away from him after the two men first met in Los Angeles in 1957.

Included with this 36 track set is a detailed biography of the Texas rocker Bob Luman by music historian Hank Davis, based on exclusive interviews with Bob Luman's friends, fellow musicians (including Burton) and family members. Learn how an aspiring baseball player and country singer changed his tune almost overnight after witnessing a vintage Elvis Presley performance in August, 1955. Bob Luman's story is almost mythical and this collection is a worthy addition to Bear Family's highly regarded 'Rocks' collection of pioneering individual artists. It's all here, on a single generously programmed CD, offering the very best of Bob Luman. There is no better collection of its kind on the market.

Artist description "Luman, Bob"

Bob Luman

It's a classic American story. It almost sounds mythic, and it sure as hell would make a great movie. And nobody could have played the part better than Bob Luman.

Here's this dirt-poor kid from east Texas, born in 1937 and growing up in the boring, strait-laced days of the early 1950s. He's sleep-walking his way through high school, trying to decide between his two loves: baseball and music. He's too wired to do well in school. It's hard to sit still, and concentrating on American history and practical math is out of the question. Sometimes his thoughts take him to the baseball diamond. He's hitting for power or making the kind of catches you see on highlight reels, robbing someone else of a hit. Sometimes he thinks about performing on stage with his guitar, fronting his own band and sounding like Lefty Frizzell or Webb Pierce or whoever happens to be on the charts.

But somewhere deep down, at a level he can't even describe, the music isn't quite what he's looking for. Something is missing. The performing is OK; he loves to be up on stage working the audience. It's the music itself that isn't quite satisfying. But where else can he take it? What options are there for a teenage white boy in Texas around 1954? If not country music, then what? Surely not the horrible pop music that some adults listen to. That's not the kind of singer he is. And he's not black, which rules out the kind of music he sometimes hears late at night on stations like WLAC in Nashville. But, boy, there's something really appealing about those blues and R&B sounds he's been hearing more and more.

And then it happens like in some sort of Hollywood movie script. It's very sudden and almost from that moment there's no turning back. What Bob Luman doesn't know is that he's not the only one it's happening to. But none of that matters right at the moment. The point is that Luman is almost immediately a changed man. Suddenly he knows what he wants to do. Baseball will slip into the background and become something to do in his spare time. Music, this new kind of music, will define who he is and what he does.

His story will be told and embellished many times over the years, by press agents, music journalists, and by Bob, himself. The official version goes like this: Bobby Glynn Luman was born on April 15, 1937 in Blackjack, a small community near the east Texas town of Nacogdoches. He went to high school in Kilgore and learned to play guitar from his father, who was also proficient on fiddle and harmonica. J. C. 'Coot' Luman was, in the words of Bob's wife Barbara, "a real John Wayne type." A tough uncompromising guy who nevertheless had a real soft spot for his son.

Bob was fronting a fairly traditional country band. In August, 1955, all of that changed. Elvis Presley, flush with the success of a few Sun Records, came through Texas. One story has it that Luman's girl saw or heard about the show first, reporting the events to Bob the next day. He wasn't sure what to make of her story, but he sensed that something was happening and he had to check it out. That evening they both went to see the strange looking young man with sideburns and swivelling hips. That was, to borrow a cliché, the first day of the rest of Bob Luman's life.
