Marvin Rainwater: Hot And Cold (LP & CD, 10inch, 45rpm)

1 vinyl 10”LP with 12-page booklet, bonus CD with additional recordings, 12 tracks (LP), 28 tracks (CD). Total playing time 28 min. (LP), 70 min. (CD)

  • Bear Family Records®  presents a 10” vinyl LP with the greatest recordings by one of the most exciting country and rockabilly artists ever: Marvin Rainwater.
  • The career of this extraordinary musician, who seemingly effortlessly combined country and rockabilly elements to create his very own style, began in 1955.
  • In the wake of the European rockabilly revival beginning in the late 1970s, Marvin Rainwater enjoyed a much-acclaimed comeback on festival stages worldwide.
  • This album gives us his very best recordings, and the bonus CD holds more treasures for us, classics alongside rather lesser-known numbers.
  • Enthralling liner notes by Roland Heinrich Rumtreiber and a deliberately sparse technical mastering treatment of these historic recordings round off the concept – expect first-class songwriting, a first-class performance and … something completely different.

Marvin Rainwater was one of the most exciting performers in country music and a revered hero of the European rockabilly revival of the late 70s and early 80s. Restless covered Mr. Blues, and The Blue Cats recorded Hot and Cold; Whole Lotta Woman was a regular on rockabilly radio shows and at record hops. 

Marvin Rainwater was his own man, with his own voice, and highly versatile. His incredible vocal range offered a bottom-end baritone for sincere songs, a snarling menace in a rockabilly arrangement, or hit the high-registers to serve as an ersatz-Hank and out-yodel the best of them. Rainwater delivered his songs with heart and soul.

This compilation offers some hot rockabilly, hillbilly bop, and Rainwater's very own brand of mid-tempo story songs that bridge the gap between pop, country, and rock and roll.  

Among Rainwater musts, like I Dig You Baby, Hot and Cold, and Mr. Blues, the 10" comes up with lesser compiled material like the mountain music inspired Hard Luck Blues or the big-city-main-stream-r&b-ballroom smash Dance Me Daddy, iced with typical Rainwater pop-coating. 

This 10" Bear Family Records® vinyl release further underlines his versatility via hillbilly pop a la Baby, Baby Don't Go that would have served the Everly Brothers well and sounds like it could have been produced by Lee Hazlewood. 

The authentic Rainwater sound is presented in full boom by (There's Always) A Need for Love, My Brand of Blues, and Love Me Baby (Like There's No Tomorrow). Marvin also tips his hat to Johnny Cash with It Wasn't Enough.

The bonus CD fleshes out all aspects mentioned above and excels with the inclusion of rare stuff like the 1956 Ozark Jubilee radio recording of Mr. Blues, two gems recorded with Link Wray and his Wraymen for Warwick, and a must-spin for every rockabilly party – Marvin's version of Gamblin' Man (Roving Gambler). 

During a time when record companies patterned every upcoming artist after Hank Williams, Marvin Rainwater stood out. He was different – some thought him to be odd. His uniqueness might have been an obstacle back in the ‘50s and ‘60s. 

But, for today's listener, Marvin Rainwater is something to discover and cherish. He ranks among the best of the immediate post-Hank performers. You are in for top songwriting, top delivery, and something completely different.

Marvin Rainwater

  

If you peruse 'Billboard's' Charts, you will notice that Marvin Rainwater had 4 chart entries on the U.S. country charts and one top forty hit on the U.S. pop charts. This information only serves to confirm that chart statistics are not the only guide to quality and longevity in the country and rock 'n' roll business. In reality they have little to do with a performer's talent and appeal.

Like many older artists still thrilling audiences of all ages in the U.S.A. and Europe, Marvin's reputation is firmly built on his fifties recordings that have established his credentials as both a country and rock 'n' roll performer. But as I found out many years ago, his repertoire was quite different when he toured in the seventies. More on that later.

The Marvin Rainwater story has been covered in detail in the book accompanying the 4-CD boxed set 'The Classic Recordings' (BCD 15600) and the single CD 'Whole Lotta Woman - Rockin' Rollin' Rainwater' (BCD 15812).

However for newcomers, he was born Marvin Percy Rainwater in Wichita, Kansas on July 2, 1925. After a stint in the Navy, he made tentative steps towards a singing career leading to appearances on the Arthur Godfrey Talent Show in 1955 after he had I Gotta Go Get My Baby out on Coral Records. He won! A contract with MGM Records followed and after a bunch of fine unsuccessful releases he scored his biggest U.S. hit in 1957 with Gonna Find Me A Bluebird which went to #3 country and #18 pop. A duet with then-unknown Connie Francis followed (The Majesty Of Love) and in 1958 came his big overseas smash, Whole Lotta Woman. Although it was only a minor hit in the States, it went to the top  in England, resulting in Marvin's first visit to Blightly. While in England he recorded 2 titles, Dance Me Daddy and I Dig You Baby, the latter achieving a #19 chart placing in June of 1958.

The '60s saw a downturn in his commercial success despite the fine quality of his recordings for Warwick, Brave, United Artists and Warner Brothers.

Return visits to the United Kingdom in the '70s saw performances at country music venues when, as yet, the rockabilly revival had not caught on. On one such tour I first saw the Rainwater magic at the Empire Theatre, Sunderland on Tuesday 17th April 1973. Strangely his show at that time comprised of only three of his recordings, Gonna Find Me A Bluebird, Whole Lotta Woman and The Troubles My Little Boy Had, this in spite of audience calls for I Dig You Baby and Halfbreed. The bulk of the songs were far better known via recordings by other artists, and probably reflected the show he gave back home. He had opened with Jambalaya followed by Running Bear and on to Peter LaFarge's Ballad Of Ira Hayes which he told the audience he had just recorded. The Merle Haggard catalogue was mined for Okie From Muskogee and Mama Tried and there was a tribute to Johnny Cash with a medley of I Got Stripes, Ring Of Fire, I Walk The Line and Folsom Prison Blues, much to the delight of the audience. Other highlights were Billy Grammer's Gotta Travel On and a new ballad I Don't Care About Tomorrow. Always a joker, he introduced Running Bear with the comment "Since the indians tore my clothes off they call me ..." Yes, you've got it!

In 1975 he was back, deputizing for the ailing Leftly Frizzell at Mervin Conn's International Festival of Country Music at the Empire Pool Wembley. There he scored a genuine triumph informing the audience, "I'll tell Lefty that he went down real well!"

By the tail end of the '70s, Marvin was trawling his own catalogue to a much greater degree than in 1973. By the time we met up again for an interview for my 'North Country' show on BBC Radio Newcastle in November 1979, he had started to include some of his obscure MGM and Warwick material like Mr. Blues and Boo Hoo. When I say "obscure", I mean to the general country music fan who had been the main intended customer for his show in 1973.

The Wembley Festival beckoned again in 1981 and once more he delighted the audience with his joyful mix of country and rockabilly. One of the highlights of the set was his version of Teddy Bear. Again I interviewed him for my radio show and we discussed the missed opportunities that had haunted him through the years. In  reality though, he has survived the music industry better than most. He's still out there touring in the U.S. and the U.K. where he topped the bill at Willie Jeffery's Hemsby Rock 'n' Roll Weekender in 1999, receiving rave reviews in the process.

A really cool collection of work from Marvin Rainwater

A really cool collection of work from Marvin Rainwater – one of those late 60s cats who was always equal parts country and rock – with a hard-wailing style and a really great way with a tune! Marvin wrote much of his material himself, and that gives his records a very personal quality – especially as he's able to shift his style slightly from tune to tune – not in a way that veers towards commercial, but which can be blue-tinged country for one theme, and red-hot rockabilly for another! This nicely-done set offers up a 10" LP with a dozen tracks from Rainwater, plus a bonus CD that features all those tracks plus many others – a total of 28 numbers on the CD
