Synopsis

Album Description
No better way to start this series of Pre-Elvis country/R&B hybrids than with the old guard - crazy cats who had been at it for years, gleefully confusing both racial boundaries and radio programmers and influencing everything that was to become Rockabilly! Everyone from Bill Haley to Elvis to Marc Bolan (who outrageously nicked 'Hayride Boogie' lock stock and barrel for his 'I Love To Boogie'!) has their roots in these songs. The rise of the Hillbilly Cat Supreme (Yeah, Elvis!) has overshadowed the role of these pioneers but here, in spectacular sound and beautiful packaging, is absolute Boogie heaven! An amazing country truckload of prime hillbilly boogie. Beautifully remastered and packaged with tons of memorabilia and detailed notes laid on by the king of the rockers, Dave Penny. A must for all lovers of Americana, country music, Western Swing, and Rockabilly. 32 tracks. Rev-ola. 2005.
