Conway Twitty: Rocks At The Castaway (2-CD)

2-CD Digipac (6-plated) with 24-page booklet, 29 tracks. Total playing tiome approx. 102 minutes.

•    High-quality live recordings, made in 1964.
•    Rock ‘n’ Roll artist Conway Twitty at the turning point.
•    Carefully restored and re-mastered for CD release.
•    Best sound quality ever presented of this material.
•    Contains songs Conway never recorded either before or after these shows.

It’s August 1964 and Conway Twitty and his band, the Lonely Blue Boys, are playing a gig at the Castaway, a club/bar at Geneva-on-the-Lake, Ohio, the lake being Lake Erie.

During the preceding seven years, Conway had been a rock 'n' roll star, placing 14 songs on the Top Hundred charts, with It’s Only Make Believe making #1 in late 1958. By 1964 he was already looking to a career in country music either as a writer or performer. He had been recording country demos for several years and within a year of this Ohio engagement, he would record with Owen Bradley at Decca Records and set up a winning streak of chart entries that lasted for the next quarter of a century, right up until his early death at the age of 59 in 1993.

So, in 1964, he is still playing his rock 'n' roll catalogue but peppering his performance with a few country classics and recent hits. The engagement at the Castaway was recorded and the tapes lay around for many years until several albums of the material were issued in the late 70s. The albums released back then in the States, had poor sound and dire artwork on the sleeves. They were badly edited and not an edifying experience for the listener.

Listen as Conway and his band get the joint rockin’ and jumpin’ with an energetic set that moves along from start to finish. Twitty fans will revel in hearing these ‘live’ recordings in the best sound quality ever presented of this material. Several songs are included that Conway never ever recorded either before or after the engagement.

The booklet included in the digipak features the Castaway story together with newspaper articles, posters and illustrations.

Artist description "Twitty, Conway"

Conway Twitty

Geb. 1. 9. 1933 in Friars Point - Mississippi
Record Labels: Mercury, MGM, Decca, Coral, MCA, Elektra, Curb, Warner Brothers, Charly, Bear Family
Erster Country Hit: Guess My Eyes Were Bigger Than My Heart (1966)
Erster Top Ten Country Hit: The image Of Me (1968)
Erster No. 1 Country Hit: Next ln Line (1968)

Harold Lloyd Jenkins alias Conway Twitty begann Mitte der 50er Jahre als Rock ”n` Roll Sänger die Aufmerksamkeit auf sich zu lenken und hatte 1958 mit „It`s Only Make Believe“ in den USA und England einen No. 1 Pop Hit. Er wirkte in ein paar Teenager-Filmen mit und begann Anfang der 60erJahre, als der Rock 'n` RoIl an Anziehungskraft verloren hatte, Country Songs zu schreiben.

Mitte der 60er Jahre nahm ihn Decca`s Produzent Owen Bradley unter seine Fittiche, und damit begann für Conway Twitty eine ganze Serie großer Country Hits, eine Conway-Twitty-Hitliste, die bis heute nicht abgerissen ist, auch wenn die Titel nicht mehr so regelmäßig unter die Top Ten gelangen. Unter seinen großen Erfolgen fand man zwar auch immer wieder sehr schöne Titel, sehr oft jedoch neigte er zu furchtbaren Schnulzen und Tränenziehern. Seine langjährige Duett-Partnerin war Loretta Lynn. Auf Conway Twitty's Konto gehen mehrere CMA-Awards und zahlreiche weitere Auszeichnungen. 1981 wechselte Conway Twitty zu Elektra und setzte dort seine Erfolgsserie fort.
