• , ,  ,For the first time, the full story of the small Arizona label that introduced the world to Sanford Clark's seminal Rock and Roll classic ,The Fool ,in 1956.

• , ,  ,Two songs recently heard on the cult American TV series 'Mad Men.'

In 1956, singer Sanford Clark, guitarist Al Casey and producer Lee Hazlewood laid out the all-time rockabilly classic The Fool and put Phoenix, Arizona, on the music world's radar. The Fool came out on the tiny MCI imprint and, energized by the national hit, the label for the next five years turned out more Rock 'n' Roll gems by the likes of Al Casey, Dick Robinson and His Makebelievers, Jim Fleming and The Casuals, Bobby and The Demons, Frank Fafara and Denny Reed. This collection is the first-ever overview of this ground-breaking company, featuring Sanford Clark's never-before-heard pre-Fool recordings of Blue Suede Shoes and Heartbreak Hotel plus previously unreleased tracks by Lee Hazlewood, Spence Bare and the Newton Brothers featuring Wayne Newton, several vintage 1950s advertising jingles and two songs played on AMC's 'Mad Men.'
39 tracks total, mostly transferred from the original analogue tapes
Compiled by Arizona music historian John P. Dixon with notes by Phoenix journalist Dan Nowicki, and a complete MCI Records discography with label pictures.

Label Profiles
History and Wedegang of record companies
In addition to presenting special record companies on individual CDs, Bear Family Records has dedicated boxes and entire series to several labels over the last twenty years.

The Texas label D-Records, for example, changes on 24 CDs from an ethnic-folkloristic label to a hardcore honky-tonk smithy and the home of the very young George Strait.

Then there is the indispensable Sun range and some other great boxes.

Customer evaluation for "Martians, Demons And Fools Like Me - The MCI Records Story 1954-61"
11 Apr 2017

Sanford Clark und The Fool sind Kult!

Jeder, der sich für Rock&Roll interessiert, sollte "The Fool" von Sanford im Schrank haben! Diese Nummer ist einer der besten frühen Rocker überhaupt. Doch auch die anderen Titel sind nicht schlecht, im Gegenteil. Die Labelbetreiber von MCI hatten wohl damals einen genialen Riecher für großen Rock&Roll. Der Sound ist richtig gut, die Verpackung wie immer bei Bear Family sehr schön und mit dickem Büchlein dabei. Unbedingt zu empfehlen!
