TEEN KINGS feat.Roy Orbison: The Teen Kings (CD)

(2001/FUEL) 17 tracks - (US) - Cut Out

1956 with 16 page booklet US Version von CD ROLL 3012 in Jewelbox mit anderem Cover Picture the scene's 1956... a smoke-filled bar, late Saturday afternoon, Odessa, Texas, a bottle of Lone Star on the counter in front of you and a week of sweat and toil in the oil fields behind you. Through the smoke, someone switches on the black & white TV above the shelf of bottles behind the bar ...slowly a picture forms on the screen and a voice says, a little uncertainly, 'Are you ready?' The Teen Kings explode on the screen with a wild version of 'Oohy Dooby'. Wonder where those kids are from_ Nearly thirty years later, the recordings the 'Teen Kings made of sees' of those live television performances must rate historically as the most important release so far of Roy Orhison's long career. For the first time ever, two in the world, we are able to hear again some of the live broadcasts that preceded his world-wide commercial successes of the sixties and onwards that etched Roy's name on the Roll of Honour in the Rock 'n' Roll Hall of Fame. It is fortunate that these recordings have survived. They give us a chance to better understand the music of an era, sadly gone by, and to appreciate more fully the influence these two early groups had on Roy's heritage. This is the story of the Wink Westerners, The Teen Kings and Roy Orbison.... Roy's earliest memories of his musical career appear to haye been in 1941 when he was five years old and in the primary grade at school in Vernon, Texas. One of his leachers was A.K. Hamblen (the brother of singer composer Stuart Hamblen, writer of 'It is no secret' :trot ole !lousy') who recognised and encouraged (lot abilities. Roy's father, ( Lee, is generally credited with teach-ing Roy to play guitar (Ir was givcn a flat-top acoustic guitar for his sixth birthday I I I( of er, Roy would also have learnt from other family members including Charlie Orhison, Orbie Lee's brother, and Kenneth Schultz, brother of Roy's mother, Nadine. Together with Clois Russell, Orbie Lee's neighbour and workmate, the Orbison clan would often sing and play - mostly for their own amusement but occasionally for a local dance - in between work in the local oil fields, Roy sometimes joining in with his rendition of 'You are my sunshine'. Radio was the train opportunity to hear music in the forties and WSM's 'Grand Ole Opry' broadcasts were easily heard throughout Texas. The Carter Family were broadcasting from Del Rio, Texas and Bob Wills from Fort Worth. The airwaves resound-ed with the music of various Mexican groups from along the southern border area. Roy would never forget the mixture of Country and Spanish-Mexican rhythms from those times. The Orbisons moved to Fort Worth sometime in 1942 and Orbie Lee found employment in the munitions and aircraft factories that had been expanded due to America's entry into World War 11. Radio stations WRAP and KFIZ were the main broadcasters in this part of Texas and they regularly featured Bob Wills & The Light Cr'. Doughboys, Ted Daffan, and Ernest Tubb. In later years Roy often recalled seeing Tubb appear on the hack of a flatbed truck, singing the praises of some local dairy products in between songs. Roy's own repertoire at this time included 'When my blue moon turns to gold', 'Dusty skies', 'No letter today' and 'San Antonio Rose'.
