Ronnie Self: Bop-A-Lena (30 Classsics 1957-63)

1-CD with 24-page booklet, 30 tracks. Playing time approx. 69 mns.

Some of the wildest, most spectacularly untamed music ever to come out of Nashville - or anywhere! Ronnie lived his life in overdrive after starting his recording career in 1956 with a case of Pretty Bad Blues. In 1957 and 1958, he cut rockabilly classics like Bop-A-Lena, Ain't I'm A Dog, Date Bait, and the original version of Big Blon' Baby. We've rounded out the set with his Decca/Kapp recordings from 1956 to 1963, a little quieter, but still weird and exciting. Check out Ugly Stick, So High, Go Go Cannibal, or Moon Burn.

Artist description "Self, Ronnie"

Ronnie Self

We covered Ronnie Self's early career in the notes accompanying BCD 16722. He was signed to Columbia Records on February 10, 1957, and the first Columbia single, Big Fool is on our earlier volume. The follow-up, recorded in June, had a little more originality. Ain't I'm A Dog had a proto punk snarl and lyrics to match ("Forget about the danger and think of the fun.."). The writers were Wayne Walker (of whom more below) and George Sherry. The latter was a Knoxville area country songwriter who wrote several huge hits (Kisses Don't Lie for Carl Smith and Crying My Heart Out Over You, originally recorded by Smith but later a #1 country hit for Ricky Skaggs) as well as the bluegrass classic Twenty Twenty Vision. Ain't I'm A Dog sold well on a regional basis and encouraged Columbia to shelve the two remaining cuts from the June session and bring Self back in December to cut Bop A Lena, for which we refer you again to BCD 16722. In March 1958, Self returned to Nashville for another session. The line-up was augmented by black Memphis saxophonist, Andy Goodrich, then studying in Nashville. Date Bait was recorded together with Wayne Walker and Mel Tillis's Petrified, modelled after Otis Blackwell's exclamation songs like Great Balls Of Fire and Breathless. With that, Ronnie Self and Columbia Records parted company. The surprise was that so few songs Ronnie Self had recorded to that point had been his own compositions. Once on Decca, he began recording his own work, and the songs he wrote for Brenda Lee, Sweet Nothin's and I'm Sorry, would fund the eccentricities that would consume the latter half of his all-too-short life. He died August 28, 1981, leaving such tantalizing unrecorded or little known songs as Bad Girls Don't Have Suntans, Before I Take It Out On The World, Here Comes Authority, and I Got A Kid By A Woman Somewhere.

For the basic biography of Ronnie Self, we can best refer you to the earlier volumes of our Columbia 'Flat Git It's, as well as our definitive Ronnie Self CD, 'Bop-a-Lena' (BCD 15436). You're So Right For Me came from the same session as Bop-a-Lena. Producer Don Law, who'd been recording since the 1930s and was a notoriously heavy drinker, must have reached for the Scotch early on this session. Self never came closer to capturing rockabilly's manic overstatement. Early punk? Perhaps. A chart contender? Not a prayer. Big Blon' Baby was the original version of the song later recorded by Jerry Lee Lewis. Jerry's record wasn't really a cover version as Self's record appeared in May 1958 and was dead in the water by the time Jerry Lee's record was released in March 1959. Also, Jerry's version wasn't really a cover because it was originally written for him at the request of Paul Case at Hill & Range Music. Presumably, it was submitted to Sun as a potential follow-up to Great Balls Of Fire. "Goodness gracious, great balls of fire"... "Jumpin Jehosophat, big blon' baby." The song was written by Rhoda Roberts (real name Rhoda Ribot) and Kenny Jacobson, a pair of New York pop tunesmiths who were in the charts with a hit record by Canadian jazzman Moe Koffman, Swinging Shepherd Blues, at the time this was recorded. Later in '58, they hit the brass ring again, this time with the equally Canadian and equally bland Four Lads singing Put A Light In The Window. Rock 'n' roll wasn't really Roberts and Jacobson's bag: they were aiming their stuff at Ella Fitzgerald, Peggy Lee, and Broadway. Jacobson has no idea how Big Blon' Baby reached Ronnie Self, but Self's recording sounded as if it was cut on a cassette deck in a toilet.
