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

1-CD with 48-page booklet, 31 tracks. Playing time approx. 68 mns.

When RCA Victor signed Elvis Presley for the unprecedented sum of $40,000 in November 1955, the label's historic acquisition was not made solely on the whim of Steve Sholes, the New York—based Country Music A&R rep. Elvis's transfer from Sun involved several players with a vested interest in the outcome, and the decision was not so much a calculated risk as a carefully considered investment strategy in which the risk was spread between RCA Victor and the New York publishing house Hill & Range. In return Hill & Range would secure at least one side of every single Presley recorded for years.

If Sholes experienced any doubts as to the wisdom of signing Presley— —and there were those who scoffed at the price— —these were dispelled in February 1956 when Heartbreak Hotel entered the national chart and precipitated the astounding fusion of country, pop and R&B which cut such a swathe across the nation's musical consciousness.

Elvis inspired a generation to rise up in the name of the Shakin' Music, and he spawned a myriad of imitators though very few would taste the bitter—sweet nectar of fame. Extolling Presley's virtues in an article he ghosted in July 1956, Sholes was only half joking when he complained, "I wish I had half—a—dozen Elvis Presleys."

Basking in the reflected glory of Presley's dash to stardom, RCA Victor helped create a market for rock 'n' roll it could not possibly control or dominate. For the next few years, Sholes and his Nashville lieutenant Chet Atkins played a game of chance in which every guitar totin' son—of—a—gun was put through the recording mill in search of the Next Big Thing. Only in retrospect, and not for want of trying, was it apparent that stars such as Elvis could not be manufactured (significantly, Sholes' only other major discovery in the pop field was Neil Sedaka).

From the edgy self—conscious mewls of teenage novices to the jagged hoedowns of pensionable hillbillies, the sounds on this collection are wild card music born of the fear and insecurity which gripped RCA's A&R staff as they sought to consolidate the company's position at the head of a movement neither they, nor anyone, really understood.

(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
