Various – Hillbilly Deluxe
The Atomicat exploration of Western Swing, Hillbilly Boogie and Honky Tonk music continues with Hillbilly Deluxe (ACCD041). The twenty-six recordings on this album are by white performers who absorbed Negro Boogie Woogie and adapted it to their Country intonations. The songs comprise of; tasty, rare, and often overlooked Hillbilly classics which were recorded between the late 1940s and the mid - 1950s. Apart from Joe Maphis these rural artists did not see fame beyond the boundaries of their homestead, and melodies of quality are guaranteed from these recordings. Tex Harper appears twice as a vocalist with Tommy Scott and His Ramblers and this hepped up Cowboy is the cat's meow, Billy Jack Wills and His Western Swing Band adapt the Tobacco Chewing saga into a mid-tempo Western dance classic. Eddie Noack was the featured vocalist for the troubled in mind R. D. Hendon and the only lady on the album Sunshine Sue, makes use of Cousin Joe Maphis skills. Two of the songs became internationally known by other artists, Reese Shipley wrote and recorded Catfish Boogie in a rural panache and Tennessee Ernie Ford recorded the hit version. Jimmy Short and The Silver Saddle Ranch Boys version of Everybody's Trying To Be My Baby was covered by many performers including; The York Brothers, Carl Perkins, and The Beatles. Our albums have; stunning design, are remastered for the best possible sound, and housed in an attractively designed cardboard sleeve, to avoid the use of plastic and be environmentally friendly. You are listening to music from the past and preserving the future!
