Rockabilly from the vaults of Lin/Kliff Records

"This is the kind of stuff that you need to be doing. Forget the hillbilly and country and western."
Alta Hayes, counter person at Dallas’ Big State record distributors, playing an early Elvis Presley Sun release to Joe Leonard, 1954.


Producer and label owner Joe Leonard of Gainesville, Texas, has recorded a wide variety of music over the years, from his first session in late 1953 to the present day, not only that he waxed for his own Lin Record label from '53 to '68, but also the material he leased to other labels like MGM and Imperial through his Leonard Productions. His output ran the gamut from honkytonk & western swing to pop, rhythm and blues, rockabilly and rock 'n' roll, with an occasional spoken word, children’s record or gospel release thrown in, too.

There were hits and misses, though more hits in a musical sense than a commercial one. Lin Records enjoyed only one real chart hit, Ken Copeland’s Pledge Of Love in 1957. There are memorable sides from Lin’s early country sessions and some strong pop releases, but unquestionably Leonard's lasting significance, as a producer and as a label owner, stems from his early grasp of the commercial possibilities of rockabilly and rock 'n' roll and his subsequent exploration of those styles, initially long before most sensed their viability.

Bear Family has explored Leonard’s legacy previously in single CDs devoted to Lin’s most important artists Buck Griffin (BCD 15811) and Andy Starr (BCD 15845) and in a 4-CD box set (BCD 15950) that follows the winding trail of Lin Records and Leonard Productions from 1953-1968. 

This collection focuses, however, on the best of Lin’s rockabilly and rock 'n' roll sides (with a few sides from sister label Kliff) from 1956-60, with representative sides from the gutsy, earthy, early work of Griffin and Starr, and the assured, tight college sextet the Strikes (also featured on Bear Family’s Imperial Rockabilly set, That'll Flat Git It, Volume 12, BCD 16102), to the smoother, pop-tinged sounds of Jerry Fuller and the Tu-Tones and the hot instrumental blues of the Atmospheres, as well as the late period rockabilly of David Ray -- to name only a few.

(Kevin Coffey, Bear Family Records 1999)

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

Eine sehr gute Zusammenstellung.Top!

Die CDs dieser Serie kann ich sehr empfehlen, denn sie sind eine Zusammenstellung sehr selten gespielter und in Deutschland sonst kaum erhältlicher Rockabilly-Titel. Daneben gibt es auch immer einige gute Country-Aufnahmen, sprich viel Musik für vergleichsweise wenig Geld. Kauftipp!
