Know about Rockabilly

Rockabilly is one of the most representative genres born from the Rock and Roll in the 50s.

Rockabilly is a fusion with the Hillbilly, Country, Western Swing, Rhythm & Blues, Boogie Woogie and Appalachian folk music.

There are many artists who made this great honor among the most representative genre we could quote Carl Perkins, Jerry Lee Lewis, Johnny Cash, Elvis Presley, Bob Luman, Johnny Burnette, Warren Smith among many others…

As well born in the middle era of social and racial tensions, the vast majority of the musicians that shaped this genre were from the country, hillbilly, Western Swing music was clearly touched by whites.

Although the hallmark of Sam Phillips gave a substantial change and a more welcoming black influence white musicians such Elvis Presley and Jerry Lee Lewis among others who had a great influence of blues musicians, Rhythm & Blues, Boogie Woogie of the time but also influenced by white music trends as the styles mentioned above.

As soon as the Hi-Fly Rangers kick off the first few bars of “Misery Train,” the opening cut on their second record (the long-awaited followup to 2006′s Hot Rod Ride to the Moon) out on Goofin’ Records, you know you’re in for a treat. And from beginning to end, Another Gear keeps the promise of those first few bars. With a mix of cleverly chosen cover tunes and perfectly convincing originals, the Rangers rip through the 15 cuts on this disc with no-holds-barred, no apologies rockabilly.

The band is a three piece in the most classic rockabilly sense with upright bassist Jake holding down the entire bottom end by himself–there’s not a drummer to be heard on this record. KK–who also plays with Maibell and the Misfires–has the rockabilly sound down cold and plays great guitar throughout. With Vesa on vocals and rhythm guitar, the trio is complete.

I love the authentic sound these guys pump out. You get into this record quickly and fully and you certainly don’t miss the drums at all. These three guys make a big noise and it’s rockin’ through and through.

In a really nice note KK wrote when he sent this record to me, he points out that the record is basically a home recording and mostly done live. He mentions that he should pick up my book to learn more about home recording, but I can tell you that he could certainly teach me a thing or two about recording. I’ve been striving in my own studio to create an authentic vintage sound and I haven’t been all that happy with my results. But these guys have it knocked. This record sounds great. Everything is clear and distinct and yet it sounds vintage without sounding “old and out of date” (if that makes any sense).

The songs on this project range from out-and-out rockabilly rockers to classic country and hillbilly boogieish numbers. There’s even a rockabilly cover version of Adele’s “Skyfall” from the Bond flick. Sounds crazy, yeah, but these guys pull it off and it works.

I had lots of fun listening to how these guys put their instrumentation together. Like I said, you don’t miss the drums even one bit. Jake doesn’t play with a strong slap on all of the songs, but when he wants to use it, he uses it really, really well. It’s also fun to listen to the interplay between the bass and the rhythm guitar. Nowhere is this more cool than on their original tune “Please Baby Please” where the bass notes act as the kick drum on ones and threes while the acoustic guitar fills in for the missing snare drum on the twos and fours, with the bass string slaps keeping the rhythm usually provided by the hi-hat cymbals. And it’s like that on song after song.

Vesa–who I think wrote most of the originals here, although the liner notes are not totally clear on that–has a great rockabilly voice. He sounds at turns like Elvis, Johnny Burnette, Eddie Cochran…well, you get the idea. His influences are displayed proudly. But he doesn’t mindlessly ape his heroes. He takes their influences and crafts his own sound. These guys are Finish, and while you can catch Vesa’s accent every once in a while, for the most part he sounds convincingly American. And not just American, but authentically southern American at that. Not that that matters one way or the other because this is great music whether with an American accent or a Finish accent. Great music is just great music any way you look at it.

It always impresses me when I hear bands from around the world who have such a solid and true understanding of this music. I try to imagine myself singing Finish music in Finish and sounding anywhere near authentic. Of course, it couldn’t happen. But these guys have really studied this music and they have an amazing feel for it. Clearly they’ve studied their English too. Add on top of that their ability to write not only the music, but also lyrics that completely make sense to the ears of a native English speaker, is truly impressive.

This is a really fine record from beginning to end. Whether the band is singing one of the rockers or breezing through a classic country swinger, I’ve enjoyed this record thoroughly and I believe you will too if you appreciate authentic rockabilly delivered with honesty and total lack of pretension.

My recommendation: Get this record and start spinning it as soon as you can. You will not be disappointed!

Interview with George and Christine Gomez about their new book “Saving The King”

SavingtheKingyellowletters

First of all, could you tell us who you are and what you are currently doing?

We are George and Christine Gomez, a married couple, who have recently written a fictional tale “Saving the King” about Elvis Presley based on our screenplay of the same name, which is catching buzz around Hollywood.
George has a nursing degree from Tennessee State University and has worked as a psychiatric registered nurse for over 30 years. He has extensive experience in the treatment of drug addiction and the effects of withdrawals. He is an avid golfer, a movie trivia buff with a movie group consisting of over 400 members, and is a lifelong Elvis fan.
Christine holds a computer science degree from CSU Chico and is a software developer for one of the nation’s premier national laboratories. She loves to read and spend time with her family. Through the journey of writing this book, she has developed a love of Elvis Presley and understands now why he was called the King of Rock n Roll.

Why did you write a book about Elvis Presley?

George grew up in Nashville, Tennessee during the sixties and seventies with a heavy dose of Elvis Presley music sharing the airwaves with the popular Country music of the region. George felt that listening to The King seemed as natural as drinking water. On that fateful Tuesday evening in 1977 when the news of Elvis’ death hung heavy in the air, George felt a great loss, as did millions of others, but he preferred to think of a different ending to the story. Out of the mournful thoughts of his teenage mind, the story began to germinate. As the years went by, he embellished the story and had a yearning to get it down on paper.
Christine grew up in the same era, but the airwaves in her California childhood were filled with the popular artists of the time. Elvis was considered a legend from a bygone time and was relegated to the “oldies” stations. She did not become a true fan until after she and George married in 2007. George’s enthusiasm for the story caught hold in Christine and the couple began the journey of bringing it to life in the form of a screenplay. With the screenplay under their belt, the next progression to the story was translating it into a book, and together they molded and shaped the story into what is now a truly endearing tribute to The King.

What’s this book all about?

Elvis Presley saves a young boy from a menacing stranger after a performance in 1956, setting up a chain of events that ultimately leads to a mystical encounter with an angel who sends Elvis on a journey that changes his destiny. The young boy grows up into a rich and powerful man who forces Elvis to confront the demons of his addictions. There are many threads to this story, such as the involvement of Johnny Cash to help orchestrate the plan while a down-and-out reporter investigates the mystery of Elvis’ death, getting too close to the truth. As the tale unfolds, the reader will be pulled back to the days when the King of Rock n Roll still sat upon his throne.

In your book description you are telling: “The young boy grows up into a rich and powerful man who forces Elvis to confront the demons of his addictions.” Wasn`t Elvis in that time the demon according to many people? Because of his sexy moves and how he dressed.

It’s true that there were people who considered Elvis to be very controversial and vulgar, but in reality he was a performer who knew how to mesmerize the crowd. The young boy in this story attended an Elvis concert with his parents who were Elvis fans as a result of a close friendship they shared with Johnny Cash and even God himself had a hand in Elvis and the young boy crossing paths that day.

Where can people get your book from and why should people buy this book?­

Anyone will enjoy this book whether they are Elvis fans or not. It is an uplifting story of redemption about the greatest artist of all time and a page-turning adventure for all ages.
Five percent of the “Saving the King” book profits will be donated to the Elvis Presley Charitable Foundation http://www.elvis.com/about-epe/giving.aspx

Jack Scott, Goodbye Baby by Buster Fayte

Here’s a quick look at “Goodbye Baby” by the iconic Jack Scott. I’ll be doing a record review in the next day or two, and the band–The Hi-Fly Rangers–does a cool cover of this song on that record. So, I thought I’d warm you up with Scott’s original. Look for that review in a day or two!

Carl and the Rhythm All Stars, Sad Days by Buster Fayte

Sometimes when you’re poking around YouTube you stumble upon some real dreck. Other times, you’re blessed with a gem. This is one of those gem times.

I don’t know much about Carl and the Rhythm All Stars, but I do know that this song sounds great. The band is based out of Paris, and came to Hollywood to record some material back in 2007 which was released on Wild Records. They’ve done a lot of touring around Europe and played some shows in California and Nevada when they were here. And that’s about all I know. I’ll have to spend some time on their Facebook page. I’m sure one of my French rockabilly connections can tell us a lot more too.

I don’t know when the band made this recording of “Sad Days,” but it sounds for all the world like it was recorded in 1955. Cool song and a great rockabilly sound. I hope they’ve got some new music in the works–I’d love to hear more!

Ginger St. James, Furious by Buster Fayte

Ginger St. James has been making quite a name for herself in Canada, pulling in a number of recent accolades and music-industry awards around Ontario. She’s got a powerful sound that is often classified as rockabilly. Instead of pure rockabilly, to me her sound is more of a roots rock approach with a healthy dose of rockabilly influence.

Her latest release is the 2012 Tease out on Let’s Riot! Music and a new single, “Furious,” which was released a short time ago. “Let’s Riot! Music,” in their own words, “is an independent Canadian record label, focusing on roots music from boppin’ rockabilly to vintage country, from gritty blues to classic swing.” That description sums up what I’ve heard by St. James pretty accurately. “Furious” is a nice, swampy rock and roll groove. She’s got a powerful voice and a lot of attitude on this tune. Plus, I really dig the guitar she’s playing in this video! It’ll be interesting to see her career progress.

The Maddox Brothers and Rose, Stop Whistling Wolf by Buster Fayte. Rockabillyromp.com

The Maddox Brothers and Rose, Stop Whistling Wolf
Posted on February 11, 2014 by Buster Fayte
I know I’ve mentioned The Maddox Brothers and Rose several times here, and maybe I should give someone else a chance, but I got to thinking about them again, and how can I help myself? A few weeks ago I reviewed the new CD from Kelli Lynn, and on that CD she did a really good version of the song “Stop Whistling Wolf.” Today I figured, why not listen to the original?

The Maddox Brothers and Rose released the song in 1957 on Columbia, and it’s one of those tunes that’s perfectly suited to Rose’s voice and the band’s zany attitude. And it’s full-speed-ahead rockabilly complete with stellar slap bass, great guitar work, and all the rest. A generous helping of wolf whistles thrown in, which is only appropriate.

Jack Earls Brings Us More from the Crawdad Hole by Buster Fayte

I talked about Red Moore and his version of the song “Crawdad Hole” a couple of days ago. Reader Ray let us know that there was another great rockabilly version by Jack Earls. I’d never heard it before, so I went looking for it, and I’m glad I did. Now friends, that’s rockabilly!

Earls recorded it in 1956 when things were hopping at The Memphis Recording Studios of Sam Phillips. Two version of this song seem to have been recorded for, but never released on, Sun Records.

Earls had a regional hit with the song “Slow Down” on Sun Records (released as Jack Earls and the Jimbos featuring Johnny Black–the brother of Elvis’ bassist Bill Black–on bass. Earls recorded several more tunes for Sun Records–including “Crawdad Hole–but nothing else was released until several years later. “Crawdad Hole” itself first appeared in public release in the mid ’70s.

Earls quit the music business in the ’60s and drove truck for General Motors. He recorded again in the ’70s, but nothing came of those recordings either until Bear Family Records released some of it even later.

Earls did partake in the rockabilly revival during the ’90s and into the 2000s, especially in Europe. Near as I can tell, Earls is still alive today. This is a very cool rockin’ version of the song! Thanks for the tip, Ray!

New EP From Jack Face by Buster Fayte

My friend Jeff at Rockin’ Central and Rydell’s Records never ceases to amaze me with the fantastic, authentic rockin’ music his artists are putting out. And they put tons of it out on vinyl, which is super cool.

An amazing example is a new 45 RPM four-song EP from Jack Face & The Rustic Echoes. These guys sound so authentic it’s almost spooky. The EP has a mix of rockabilly and Hank Williams style honky tonkers on it and the snippets in the clip below sound wonderful.

I love the modern rockabilly sounds, but I can honestly say that nothing moves me like the classic sounds. I wouldn’t want every band out there making their music sound like it was recorded in 1956, but when one comes along that does sound like that, well…let’s just say I’m a sucker for that sound. And these guys nailed it!
