Synopsis

Album Description
The music of The Fireballs came out of the creative hothouse that was Norman Petty's Clovis studios (where Buddy Holly cut great music too). 'Blue Fire' was finished in 1960 & intended as the follow-up to their second album 'Vaquero'. It never saw the light of day as the Top Rank label went bankrupt before the album's release. A superb set in true stereo, it is hard to believe that it's taken so long for these 12 tracks to see a first release. 'Rarities', meanwhile, gathers together 18 previously unissued & 1 issued recordings in a real musical bonus for all die-hard instrumental enthusiasts & hard-core Fireballs fans. 31 tracks in all plus a 12-page booklet with extensive liner notes & b&w photos. Ace. 1993.
