Various - That'll Flat Git It!: Vol.7 - Rockabilly From The Vaults Of MGM Records (CD)

1-CD mit 44-seitigem Booklet, 30 Einzeltitel. Spieldauer ca. 70 Minuten.

Ein ansteckender Beat, akzentuiert durch das Schlagen der Bass-Saiten; die gehackten Rhythmen der Akustikgitarre; eine gelegentliche zitterrnde Geige; glühende E-Gitarren-Soli und die schluckenden, nasalen, erfahrungsreichen Stimmen von echten Sam Hillbilly-Sängern. Das sind die Markenzeichen des besten Rockabilly, und dieses Album hat diese Zutaten in Hülle und Fülle. Die vielleicht authentischste Rockabilly-Kollektion bis heute, es gibt jede Menge echten, harten 'Bop'."

Worte, welche die "The MGM Rockabilly Collection" (der erste von zwei solchen Bänden) im Jahr 1977 einführten sind ebenfalls auf diese Anthologie anwendbar, die die besten Tracks beider Alben enthält und eine Handvoll Blue Collar Bopper aus derselben schwarz und gelb farbigen Quelle hinzufügt.

MGM Records war das Kind von Frank Walker. 1945 von der Muttergesellschaft Loew's Corporation beauftragt, eine Plattenabteilung zu gründen, erschienen 1947 Walkers erste Veröffentlichungen.
Der gebürtige New Yorker mit einem Hintergrund im Musiktheater hatte dennoch ein gutes Ohr für Country- und Bluesmusik.

Er war ein A&R-Mann für Columbia, Victor und V-Disc und wird für  die Unterzeichnung von Bessie Smith und Hank Williams für Columbia bzw. MGM in die Geschichtsbücher eingehen. Es gab eine gerade Linie zwischen Hank Williams' Up-Tempo-Country-Dance-Songs und Rock'n' Roll.
Williams sorgte dafür, dass Country-Musik ein Teil von MGMs Zukunft war, und neben den vielen jugendlichen Sängern, die durch den Erfolg von Presley motiviert wurden, enthielt die Liste auch eine Reihe von Veteranen, die ihre Prinzipien in einem letzten verzweifelten Versuch, an Bord des Rockabilly-Zuges zu springen, kompromittierten.

Der Held dieser Serie ist nicht Frank Walker, der kurz vor der Pensionierung stand (Marvin Rainwater dachte, er sei ein wenig senil) oder Wesley Rose (der MGM-Produzent, der behauptete, wenn Hank Williams dort gelebt hätte, hätte es keinen Rock'n' Roll gegeben) oder sogar Jim Vienneau (der Land-A&R-Mann des Unternehmens, dessen Hauptqualifikation für den Job zu sein scheint, dass er Frank Walkers Nachbar auf Long Island war).

Die Hörer müssen stattdessen in Richtung Gainesville, Texas, nicken, nur wenige Kilometer von der Grenze zu Oklahoma entfernt, wo Joe M. Leonard Buck Griffin und Andy Starr für sein kleines Label Lin Records aufnahm. Leonard, ein wohlhabender Ölmann nach Starr, leitete auch KGAF in Gainesville und förderte persönliche Auftritte von jungen Rockabilly-Hoffnungen, darunter Elvis, dessen Sun-Singles sich in Nord-Texas noch nicht durchgesetzt hatten.

In einer Bewegung, die an Presleys Deal mit RCA Victor erinnert, platzierte Leonard Andy Starr auf MGM in Übereinstimmung mit den Aberbach Brothers und ihrem New Yorker Verlagshaus Hill and Range.  Die Versprechungen der Presley-Skala Förderung wurden jedoch nicht erfüllt und Starr schmachtete in unverdienter Dunkelheit wie Buck Griffin, der in Starrs Fußstapfen zu MGM trat.

Andere Künstler auf Leonards kleinem, aber beeindruckendem Label landeten auf Imperial, darunter Ken Copeland, der Balladesänger, der 1957 zum Evangelisten wurde, dessen Pledge Of Love die Top 20 anstieß, und The Strikes, die wenig bekannte, aber beeindruckende Band, die so viel zu Andy Starrs Sound beitrug.

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
