Rocks on CD

Charlie Feathers Rocks and here's the ultimate 31 track Bear Family Records® CD to prove it! The first label and decade spanning compilation covering the 1950s to 1990s. No overlaps with the Bear Family Records® CD 'RockaBilly' BCD16309! Rockin' music from 195677 including classics like Get With It, One Hand Loose and Tear It Up plus supreme tracks from later years, incl. That Certain Female a later Rollin' Rock recording which became cometlike popular worldwide by Quentin Tarantino's blockbuster 'Kill Bill'! Recordings made for Sun, Flip, Meteor, King plus sides he made after his rediscovery in late '60s and early '70s rockabilly revival, a.o. some recordings for the label Barrelhouse Records. As a bonus, there is the very rare track Adamsville by Bill Privett, with Charlie Feathers on guitar about a spectacular bank robbery in Adamsville (the hometown of Sheriff Buford Posser), Tennessee. Detailed liner notes by Martin Hawkins, roots music expert and author of the book 'Sun Records The Brief History of the Legendary Record Label'. Carefully remastered for the best possible sound quality. The long overdue tribute to a legendary uncompromising artist in our 'Rocks' series! The rocking music here is mostly from the 1950s and '60s (classics such as Get With It, One Hand Loose, Tear It Up) but some later tracks remind us that Charlie Feathers was playing and recording his own version of rockabilly in Memphis for over 40 years. Feathers was one of the very few artists who really did have a style all his own. His rock was not the same as anyone else's. It was more country, yet also more bluesy, and with a pulse all it's own; more about rhythm than anything. Charlie only had a short '50s career but on iconic labels like Sun, Flip, Meteor, King then was rediscovered in the '70s rockabilly revival and beyond.
