Hayden Thompson: Learning The Game (CD)

(Bluelight) 12 tracks - Rockabilly Highlight!***** (also available: Limited Viny LP (300 copies. different tracks - LPBLR33184)
-
The Godfather of Rockabilly, Iron Hayden... those are a few of the nicknames given to Hayden Thompson, and they all tell the story of a highly love d and respected genuine 1950 ’ s rock ‘n’ roll legend. He started his career on the legendary Sun Records wh ich was the starting point for Elvis Presley, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Carl Perkin s, Charlie Rich and Roy Orbison , just to mention a few of the young wild - eyed southern boys, who frequented the tiny recording studio at 706 Union Avenue, Memphis, Tennessee.
Hayden Thompson’s career has spanned over seven decades, and even though the hit record he’s been looking for has not yet emerged, he re fuses to remain a footnote. “I’ll be soon 79 years old and I don’t know how much time I have left, but I know I can still entertain people”, he says. He still gives shows within the rockabilly circuit on two continents, and his loyal fans treat him like he sold 10 million records. His recordings of this millennium definitely prove that he is certainly at the top of his game, and that his voice is as powerful and authoritative as ever.
The new album will be the third one in the series of Hayden Thompson's new recordings on Bluelight Records, Finland. While the first one, simply titled “Hayden Thompson” (2007), was an uptown country album, and the follow - up “Standing Tall” (2010) pure rock ‘n’ roll, the third one proudly presents more stripped - down rockabilly from hand - picked covers to original songs contributed by various songwriters, all given a rocking treatment by Mr. Thompson and his right - hand men, the fabulous Bluelight A-team.
Hayden Thompson is a force of nature that keeps coming back stronger. Bluelight Records is proud to present in the hardest and toughest Hayden Thompson album thus far.

Artist description "Thompson, Hayden"

Hayden Thompson

Today, Hayden Thompson is one of the last active performers from the first wave of white rock and rollers, those mid-South movers and shakers dubbed 'rockabillies' by 'Billboard,' the music trade paper, in 1955. He has also been among the most impressive of the American artists on the European rockabilly revival tours since he first signed up for them in 1984. "People had been telling me to get on a revival show,"  he jokes,"but I never even had a hit to revive."

What he did have were credentials and style. He had been there at the epicentre of rockabilly back when nobody knew quite what it was or what to call it. He was born within a few miles of Elvis Presley, he made his first record within a few months of Presley, and he was on the legendary Sun Records, or at least the subsidiary Phillips International, where he recorded one of the acknowledged classics of rock 'n' roll, Love My Baby.

"Elvis played in Booneville when he just had a couple of records out on Sun," Hayden remembers, probably describing a show that has been traced to January 17 1955. "I stood out back and chatted with him a while. I was a sixteen year old talking to a nineteen year old. There wasn't a single person in that alleyway except him and me and he had that pink Cadillac which just knocked me out. I'd been playing on radio and little dances, but this was somebody I could really relate to. Earlier, he had played a thirty-minute set at the radio station with Scotty and Bill, and I stood right there in the studio, which was maybe twenty by twenty, while this happened." A life-changing experience, or what?

Like Presley, Hayden had a good voice that, crucially, was adaptable. He was billed on his first record as 'the South's most versatile singer' and if that was a little optimistic a claim for a sixteen year old, the analysis was headed in the right direction. He was capable of a good Elvis imitation – in fact he and Johnny Cash were probably the first two to feature such an imitation in their early acts – but he came out of a pure country band, he listened to R&B radio at night, and he could turn his hand to popular-style ballads, folksy sagas or post-Nashville Sound country as the sounds of the 1950s gave way to those of the 1960s.

It was that vital three-year age difference behind Presley that accounted for Hayden's initial lack of chart success – the reason he didn't have that hit to revive – because by the time he got to Memphis the pure rockabilly sound he was so smitten with was already giving way to smoother, more produced, rock 'n' roll. But it was the versatility, trumpeted on his first disc, that enabled him to adapt over the years and to fight on and on for the hit that unfortunately – and probably it does just come down to fortune - never came.
