Glen Glenn - The Glen Glenn Story - Everybody´s...

(Ace Records) 50´s ERA label material backed with his comeback LP cut in 1984. - This fine twofer is very much tied in with Ace’s history, especially with our original Chiswick label. The first album on Chiswick in 1977 was ´Hollywood Rock’n’Rol´” which contained some tracks by Glen Glenn that attracted appreciative reaction from European fans. Ace founder Ted Carroll met Glen near Los Angeles soon after and was able to assemble a new album that included alternate takes of his best-known songs plus some radio and TV performances. This was issued as ´The Glen Glenn Story´ in 1982, once again to much acclaim around the UK and Europe, which spurred Glen to return to the studio to make a new album, ´Everybody’s Movin’ Again´, released on Ace in 1984. Glen Glenn, real name Glen Troutman, was born in Missouri in 1934. Being raised near the Ozark Mountains meant that any musical career would have at least a country slant, but a move toSan Dimas, California brought fresh influences into the mix. He befriended guitar player Gary Lambert, and by 1954 they were working as a duo named Glen & Gary, The Missouri Mountain Boys, playing local dances and jamborees. They learnt a good deal of road craft as part of the Maddox Brothers’ touring show. Glen’s break as a rockabilly soloist came in early 1958 when he recorded ‘Everybody’s Movin’’ at Gold Star studio in LA, backed by Eddie Cochran’s bassist Connie ´´Guybo” Smith. Released on the Era label, the record became a strong seller. The follow-up, ‘Laurie Ann’ / ‘One Cup Of Coffee’, sold even better, but Glen’s career was interrupted by a two-year spell in the Army, although 1959 saw the release of another splendid rockabilly double-sider, ‘Would Ja’ / ‘Blue Jeans And A Boy’s Shirt’. All these releases featured distinctive rocking guitar work that rivals anything from the period. The material on the first album here includes strong versions of ‘Baby Let’s Play House’, ‘Be-Bop-A-Lula’, ‘Shake Rattle And Roll’, ‘Treat Me Nice’ and ‘I Got A Woman’. The 1984 album contains excellent covers of songs by Roy Orbison, Wayne Raney, Larry Williams, Johnny Cash and Hank Williams alongside Glen’s new version of the title track. The fine old-style rockabilly feel was achieved by Glen calling in Gary Lambert and Connie Smith, both of whom had played on his original Era recordings. Unsurprisingly, the results captured all the spirit of the 50s with drummer Ernie Lopez providing a fine framework for the many hot guitar licks, making the album one of the best and most convincing rockabilly remakes you could hope to find.

Glen Glenn - The Glen Glenn Story (LP)
17,95 € *
zzgl. 3,99 € Versand

(Ace Records) 13 Tracks 1956-60, gemastert von Bob Jones im Music Centre, Wembley. - Glen Glenn (richtiger Name Glenn Troutman) wurde im Oktober 1934 in Joplin, Missouri, nahe genug an den Ozark Mountains geboren, um für einen Jungen natürlich zu sein und davon zu träumen, Country-Sänger zu werden. Der Umzug mit seiner Familie nach San Dimas, Kalifornien, führte zu einer High School Freundschaft mit dem begabten jungen Gitarristen Gary Lambert. Es dauerte nicht lange, bis die Jungs einen Talentplatz auf der Squeakin´ Deacon Show im Riverside Rancho, Los Angeles, gewonnen hatten. Anfang 1954 trat das junge Duo regelmäßig als Glen und Gary The Missouri Mountain Boys an so beliebten Orten wie Cliffie Stone´s Hometown Jamboree und dem County Barn Dance im Baldwin Park auf. In den folgenden drei Jahren tourten sie mit den Maddox Brothers und Porter Wagoner auf häufigen Fernsehshows und auf weiteren Tourneen, unter anderem bei The Ozark Jubilee. Doch für Glen blieb die lebenswichtige Pause schwer zu fassen, er war trotz mehrerer Sessions, die vom typischen Mittfünfziger Country bis zum reinen Rockabilly reichten, immer noch ohne Plattenvertrag, einige dieser bisher unveröffentlichten Titel wurden von den Maddox Brothers unterstützt, die Rockabilly vom Feinsten zeigten. Glen´s Swing of Fortune kam im Januar´58, als er seine eigene Komposition `Everybody´s Movin´ in den mittlerweile legendären Goldstar Studios in Hollywood aufnahm, unterstützt von seiner eigenen Band, zu der damals auch Connie ´ Guybo´ Smith (auch Eddie Cochran´s Bassman) gehörte. Glen´s unverwechselbarer Stil beeindruckte Herb Newman und Lew Bedell von ERA Records. Mit kaum trockener Tinte auf seinem Vertrag wurde ´Everybody´s Movin´ (ERA 1061) veröffentlicht. In diesem Sommer folgte die von Wally Lewis geschriebene Teenie-Ballade´Laurie Ann´ c/w´One Cup Of Coffee´ (ERA 1074), die zu Glen´s größtem Chart-Erfolg wurde und hohe Platzierungen in Billboard und Cashbox erzielte. Ende Januar´58 hatte Uncle Sam jedoch mit einer zweijährigen Dienstzeit der Special Service Army interveniert, während der er Truppen in Hawaii, Korea und Japan unterhielt. Unterdessen erschien im folgenden Jahr ´Would Ya´/` Blue Jeans And A Boys Shirt´ (ERA 1086), beides großartige Rockabilly-Nummern. Leider waren dies nicht nur seine letzten in dieser Form, sondern auch auf dem ERA-Label, Lew Bedell verließ die ERA-Partnerschaft, um sein neues DORE-Outfit zu gründen, Glen Glenn war einer der Künstler, die dem neuen Set-up zugeordnet waren. Seine Initiation war ein Pop-Rocker, `Goofin´ Around´/`Susie Green From Abilene´ (DORE 523), das Ergebnis einer Session mit den Studiomusikern Ernie Freeman und Plas Johnson, die Formel war erfolglos. Aus der Armee entlassen, nahm Glen die Fäden seiner Karriere auf, mit regelmäßigen Shows und weiteren TV-Spots. Seine nächste Aufnahme ´I´ll Never Stop Loving You´/`I Didn´t Have The Sense To Go´ (DORE 717), die 1964 unter dem Namen Glenn Trout erschien, war seine letzte, er war von der anstrengenden Tournee zunehmend enttäuscht. Als er die Musikszene verließ, entschied er sich für Sicherheit und Zufriedenheit im Familienleben in Südkalifornien. Dieses Album mit einigen bisher unveröffentlichten Tracks beweist sicherlich das Können von Glen Glenn, einem Künstler, dessen Potential nie voll ausgeschöpft wurde. (Barry K. John, Mai 1982)

TWILIGHT RANCHERS - Who Stole That Train ? (CD)
16,49 € *
zzgl. 3,99 € Versand

(2004/COW ISLAND) 12 tracks (32:19) Boston´s blend of Honky Tonk, Hillbilly and Western Swing. Produced by Sean Mencher. Longtime fans of Boston´s hillbilly scene get misty-eyed when the conversation turns to the golden age of the early ´50s. There was a day when the airwaves crackled with WCOP´s Hayloft Jamboree (three shows a day at one point!), country music was all you heard at dozens of nightspots in and around BostOn, and even the snootiest Hah-vand-educated Boston Brahmin could walk into II Walker´s Riding Apparel and walk out looking like Bob Wills. Indeed, it´s been reported that Boston alone accounted for 25% of all country record sales in the American east during that era. So it´s bats off to The Twilight Ranchers for doing their level best to turn back the clock to that golden age. I first encountered them on a Friday night at the Plough and Stars in Cambridge; a bunch of guys dressed to the nines in vintage western duds and playing instruments at least as old as the songs they were playing. What stood out was the music, though; a blend of classic honky-tonk, hillbilly, and a bit of western swing that had feet a-tappin´ and liquor a-pourin´. There was really no room to dance, but people did anyway. Having since hooked up with string wizard/producer Sean Mencher (High Noon, Wayne Hancock) and engineer Matt Robbins (King Memphis), The Twilight Ranchers now offer the rest of the world a bit of. what Boston´s been hearing for the last couple of years. So without any further ado, I give you WJ, Rob, Jon, Brad, and Matt - The Twilight Ranchers! -Jon Johnson, Country Standard Time magazine.

Sherry Davis - Just A Little Bit of Sherry Davi...

(Rollercoaster) 4 tracks - small center - Sherry Davis met Gene Autry when she was taken to visit his house as a child, and from that day she wanted to be a singer. Success in Amateur Nights and Talent Shows led Sherry to singing on the Cowtown Round-Up where she met Smokey Montgomery who helped her join Texo Ted Gouldy´s Hired Hands about October 1949. The Hired Hands were effectively the Light Crust Doughboys in disguise and had a daily show on Radio WBAP, Fort Worth. About a year later Sherry switched to WBAP-TV´s Bewley Barn Dance which she co-hosted with Darrell Glenn, who was replaced by Pat Boone when Glenn went on the road to promote his big hit ´Crying In The Chapel´. Gene Autry encouraged Sherry to move to the West Coast about 1954. She recorded advertising jingles for American Music and played on the Foreman Phillips Show and Town Hall Party before becoming featured singer on the nationally syndicated Lawrence Welk TV Show. The American Music connection led to her disc debut ´God Speaks´/´Did You Stop To Pray This Morning?´ (Crest 1005). Sherry returned to Dallas in 1955 and was soon a regular on the Big D Jamboree playing alongside the biggest names in music. She also hosted KRLD-TV´s Opus ´56 show. In October 1956 Sherry became one of the very few artists ever to support a tour by RCA artist Elvis Presley; they played to over 60,000 people in 4 days. The following summer the Big D´s Ed McLemore and Johnny Hicks set up a recording session, financed by Ray Winkler (Radio KZIP, Amarillo), which took place in Norman Petty´s studio overnight July 25-26, 1957. Petty hired the musicians and it wasn´t until later that Sherry realised she´d been backed by Buddy Holly (lead guitar) and JI Allison (drums) who at the time were still a few weeks away from stardom with the Crickets. The other musicians were George Atwood on bass, Vi Petty on organ, the Picks (Bill & John Pickering and Bob Lapham) backing vocals and Jack Vaughan or Niki Sullivan on rhythm guitar. ´´Broken Promises´´ and ´´Humble Heart´´ made up the debut single on Winkler´s Fashion label (1001) in late August. Mitch Miller wanted to buy the masters for Columbia but the deal fell through when McLemore refused to relinquish the publishing rights; a devastating blow for Sherry as Miller would have been the perfect person to promote her career. The two songs have never been reissued until now and the original single is one of the highest priced discs to emerge from Texas. The two superb and previously unissued rockers on side one of this EP are a mystery. Sherry recognises her voice but cannot recall recording them. They were probably cut in Dallas about 1957. The classy backings may well be the Big D Jamboree houseband. Whatever the origins the two songs are among the best femme rockers to come out of Texas. This is just a little bit of Sherry Davis - further material by Sherry will appear on a forthcoming Rollercoaster CD, Highway 84. Sherry later worked the Holiday Inn circuit and then spent almost a decade as a Las Vegas headliner singing for lounge-pop genius Esquivel before retiring from music in 1971. It´s a pity we had to wait so long for Sherry´s first release in the UK, but maybe it´s not too late for her career to take off on this side of the Atlantic ....(John Ingman)
