Various - That'll Flat Git It!: Vol.1 - Rockabilly From The Vaults Of RCA Records (CD)

1-CD mit 48-seitigem Booklet, 31 Einzeltitel. Spieldauer ca. 68 Minuten. 

Als RCA Victor im November 1955 Elvis Presley für die beispiellose Summe von 40.000 Dollar unter Vertrag nahm, war die historische Übernahme des Labels nicht nur auf die Laune von Steve Sholes, dem in New York ansässigen Country Music A&R Vertreter, zurückzuführen. Elvis' Transfer von Sun beinhaltete mehrere Spieler mit einem berechtigten Interesse am Ergebnis, und die Entscheidung war nicht so sehr ein kalkuliertes Risiko, sondern eine sorgfältig überlegte Anlagestrategie, bei der das Risiko zwischen RCA Victor und dem New Yorker Verlag Hill & Range verteilt wurde. Im Gegenzug würde sich Hill & Range mindestens eine Seite von jeder einzelnen Presley Single für Jahre sichern.

Wenn Sholes Zweifel an der Weisheit der Unterzeichnung von Presley hatte - und es gab diejenigen, die über den Preis spotteten - wurden diese im Februar 1956 ausgeräumt, als Heartbreak Hotel in die nationalen Charts eintrat und die erstaunliche Verschmelzung von Country, Pop und R&B auslöste, die das musikalische Bewusstsein der Nation durchdrang.

Elvis inspirierte eine Generation, sich im Namen der Shakin' Music zu erheben, und er brachte eine Myriade von Nachahmern hervor, obwohl nur sehr wenige den bitter-süßen Nektar des Ruhms schmecken würden. In einem Artikel, den er im Juli 1956 veröffentlichte, scherzte Sholes nur halb, als er sich beschwerte: "Ich wünschte, ich hätte ein halbes Dutzend Elvis Presleys."

RCA Victor, der sich im Glanz von Presleys Sturm zum Ruhm sonnt, half dabei, einen Markt für Rock'n' Roll zu schaffen, den er nicht kontrollieren oder dominieren konnte. Für die nächsten Jahre spielten Sholes und sein Nashville-Leutnant Chet Atkins ein Glücksspiel, bei dem jede Gitarre, die ein junger Musiker hatte, auf der Suche nach dem nächsten großen Ding durch die Aufnahmemühle geschickt wurde. Nur im Nachhinein, und nicht aus Mangel an Versuchen, war es offensichtlich, dass Stars wie Elvis nicht hergestellt werden konnten (signifikant, Sholes' einzige andere große Entdeckung im Pop-Bereich war Neil Sedaka).

Von den nervösen, selbstbewussten Stimmen der Teenager-Neulinge bis hin zu den gezackten Hoedowns der pensionsfähigen Hillbillies sind die Klänge dieser Kollektion eine wilde Musikmischung, die aus der Angst und Unsicherheit entstanden ist, die die A&R-Mitarbeiter von RCA ergriffen hat, als sie versuchten, die Position des Unternehmens an der Spitze einer Bewegung zu festigen, die weder sie noch irgendjemand wirklich verstanden hat.

(Bill Millar, Bear Family Records BCD15622)

That'll Flat Git It CD-Album-Series with Rockabilly Music

Classic Rockabilly on CD

That'll Flat Git It!Back in 1992, we had the idea that we should create the all-time definitive Rockabilly CD-Album-Series, That'll Flat Git It! -  Above all, Rockabilly was music recorded for 45RPM singles, so we designed a CD-Album-Serie label-by-label instead of artist-by-artist. And we compiled it for listening pleasure. Just the great stuff, plus a few super rarities.

Every of these That'll Flat Git It CDs would be for the most part a 30 song jukebox of the finest Rockabilly ever recorded for all the great labels. We sourced the very best sounding tapes and took them to the best mastering engineers. On top we took the packaging to a new level.

We adopted the catchphrase of the first Rockabilly dee-jay, Dewey Phillips, 'That'll Flat Git It!', and we hired Bill Millar, who'd compiled the still-classic label-oriented LPs in the 1970s and 1980s, to write the notes. We looked for previously unpublished photos, and tried to find all the artists who'd never been found before.

The result is a truly definitive Rockabilly CD-Album-Serie

Peerless series!

My awakening in the '90's that there were hundreds of artists in the 1950's who tried out the shakin' music for size and that a huge percentage of these recordings are worth adding to one's grey matter!
