Various: Shotgun Boogie - Rhythm & Blues Goes Country Vol.1 (CD)

1-CD (Digipak) with 36 page booklet, 29 tracks. Total playing time approx. 79 min.
  • There has always been a lively exchange between musicians in the USA - regardless of skin color.
  • With 'Shotgun Boogie', Bear Family Records® documents in text and sound how R&B musicians successfully covered songs from the country music songbook. 
  • Smiley Lewis sings Link Davis' Big Mamou, Joe Liggins Johnnie Lee Wills’ Rag Mop, Sonny Knight sings Hank Williams' country tearjerker Lovesick Blues, the Crows cover Bill Carlisle's No Help Wanted, Guitar Jr. brilliantly interprets Harlan Howard's Pick Me Up On Your Way Down and Cecil Gant grooves through Tennessee Ernie Ford's Shotgun Boogie.
  • 29 carefully remastered recordings from the best sources.
  • Liner notes by the renowned music expert Bill Dahl with biographical and discographical details.

Even casual music fans recognize the seismic impact rhythm and blues made on country music during the mid-1950s as a new generation of performers embraced rockabilly. Yet a reverse effect could also be evident, dating all the way back to the postwar era. 

After all, a great song was a great song, whether Wynonie Harris was belting Louis Innis‘ Good Morning Judge and Hank Penny’s Bloodshot Eyes or The Griffin Brothers, Fat Man Robinson, and Sonny Knight were individually latching on to one Hank Williams classic or another to give them a snazzy R&B spin. 

That’s the premise behind Bear Family’s 29-song ‘Shotgun Boogie - Rhythm & Blues Goes Country Vol. 1,‘ as both B.B. King and The Platters give Tennessee Ernie Ford’s immortal smash Sixteen Tons contrasting readings that songwriter Merle Travis could never have envisioned, while the lusty Bull Moose Jackson unfurls his deep-toned pipes on three country classics from his deep catalog at King Records. 

Who would have ever expected Scatman Crothers, Smiley Lewis, and Joe Liggins to traffic in hillbilly covers, much less Lonnie ‘Guitar Jr.‘ Brooks or boogie pianist Cecil Gant? 

But they’re all here, eloquently illustrating the inexorable connection between R&B and C&W - albeit in the reverse direction from what the history books preach!

Customer evaluation for "Shotgun Boogie - Rhythm & Blues Goes Country Vol.1 (CD)"
14 Apr 2024

Great compilation!

The interaction between country and rhythm & blues produced many beautiful versions of well-known and lesser-known country songs.

6 Mar 2024

Excellent compilation of country done different

Even though I had high hopes I was pleasantly surprised by this CD. It's filled with country done by rhythm and blues artists. There are quite a few surprising versions of well-known songs like Pistol Packin' Mama and It Makes No Difference Now. My personal favorites are a laid back, jazzy, bluesy version of Ghost Riders in the Sky and a very smooth almost jazzy version of Indian Love Call (wonderful sax playing that reminded me of Ben Webster). I only hope that the "Vol. 1" on the packaging means that this is just the start of another wonderful series!

29 Feb 2024

Long overdue!

Finally!! I was hoping for it since years! This compilation includes the real country songs which were covered by Rhythm & Blues artists and Doo-Wop groups. There are other compilations on the market which completely fail with the know-how and only because a song has the term 'country' in it - that does not mean it's a country song! This is the real deal!
