They called it Rockabilly long before they called it Rock’n’Roll…” so sings the undisputed Queen of Rockabilly, Wanda Jackson on her 2006 album Remember Elvis.
And whilst the Hillbilly Cat was undeniably the genre’s most famous
protagonist, the exciting fusion of white Country music and black Rhythm
& Blues that erupted across the US in the mid-50s made household
names of many, and produced a wealth of recordings rarely equalled for
unbridled energy and wild rebellion. The Rockabilly revival which took
hold in the 1970s found a new audience for this music which endures to
this day, making stars of the more obscure exponents twenty years after
the event. Raw, rough and ready, Rockabilly paved the way for Pop music
as we know it.
If the South was the birthplace of Rockabilly, then Sun Records in
Memphis was its cradle. In the wake of Elvis Presley, hopefuls flocked
to the tiny independent from all over the southern US and beyond, keen
to replicate his success. With groundbreaking producer Sam Phillips at
the controls, Sun was undoubtedly the epicentre of this new music and
helped launch the careers of Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and Roy
Orbison, to name but three. However, following Elvis’ breakthrough and
subsequent move to RCA for an unprecedented $35,000, other indies and
major labels alike were determined to get in on the act.
Lucky Parker’s carefully-compiled 3CD set, now released in a 2LP
vinyl collectors edition featuring 32 of the most sought-after tracks,
offers a sizzling selection of some of the finest Rockabilly recordings
from the period 1954-58. Alongside the household names sit the more
obscure, and whilst their stars may not have burned for long, they
burned no less brightly thanks to records that are now regarded as
classics. Including genre-defining cuts from the likes of proto-punks
the Johnny Burnette Trio, Janis Martin ‘The Female Elvis’, Billy Riley,
Ronnie Self, and Bob Luman, as well as lesser-heard gems, Good Rockin’ Tonight is Rockabilly at its red hot rockin’est best.
