Myrna LorrieHello Baby – Juke Box Pearls ... CD CD format
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $18.99 22.99
A lesser-known girl singer from the 50s – one with a surprisingly great body of work – an all-too-short career that's beautifully collected here by Bear Family! Myrna Lorrie's got maybe a bit more country in her approach than some of the other artists in the Juke Box Pearls series, but there's definitely a rocking undercurrent to the music too – and her vocals are wonderful, with a melancholy undercurrent that reminds us a lot of Patsy Cline, and which finally got its showcase in Lorrie's comeback in much later years. These early tracks are all gems, though – and given the usual great Bear Family presentation with copious notes and rare images – in a batch of 22 titles that include "Teenager's Breakup", "Hello Baby", "You Bet I Kissed Him", "I've Got Somebody New", "Die I Thought I Would", "Are You Mine", and "Life's Changing Scene".

VariousHillbillies – They Tried To Rock Vol 1 ... CD CD format
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... $18.99 26.98
They tried to rock – and rock they did – in this very cool assortment of rockabilly numbers cut by cats who were better-known as mainstream country artists – all of whom were trying on a new set of sounds during the early years of rock and roll! Some of the singers here were older established acts, and others were younger talents who hadn't yet decided on a direction – and together, they all make some mad musical moments here – tracks that have firm country roots, but lots of surprising rockabilly inflections – not the kind of sounds you might normally expect from artists like Webb Pierce, Lefty Frizell, George Jones, or Eddy Arnold. The package is a treasure in the best Bear Family mode – with copious notes and images that really get at the uniqueness of the work – and a 31 track package filled with great titles that include "Teenage Boogie" by Webb Pierce, "I Gotta Know" by Wanda Jackson, "Blue Suede Shoes" by Pee Wee King, "Little Lovin'" by Mimi Moman, "Ten Cats Down" by The Miller Sisters, "Hey Little Dreamboat" by Rose Maddox, "Go, Boy, Go" by Carl Smith, "Maybelline" by Carl Perkins, "Hep Cat Baby" by Eddy Arnold, "Let The Teardrops Fall" by Patsy Cline, "Red Hen Rock" by The Louvin Brothers, "You're Humbuggin Me" by Lefty Frizzell, "I'm Comin Home" by Johnny Horton, "One Night" by Kirk Hansard, and "Goodnight Sweetheart Goodnight" by Johnnie & Jack.

New Fern JonesGlory Road (with download) ... LP LP format
Dot/Numero, 1959. New Copy 2LP Gatefold ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Southern hillbilly soul from Fern Jones – a minister, church singer and songwriter with a real feel for the secular shake of 50s Sun Records, honky tonk, and shout blues – a pure evangelical with a worldly groove! Fern worked the gospel circuit of tent and church shows for many, many years – but only recorded two albums, this one for Dot/Paramount. Fern sings in the torch country style of Patsy Cline, often with spare rockabilly-styled guitar and drums backbeat. This album is probably most noteworthy for the classic song "I Was There When It Happened" – co-written by Fern Jones and made famous by Johnny Cash. It's especially legendary because it was the only gospel number Sam Phillips allowed Cash to include on his first LP. But Fern's album is more than worthy of a late discovery – she's a true pioneer, fearlessly blending the Lord's work with the Devil's music – at a time when such poles were anathema for most artists, fans, and record labels alike! Original album tracks include "You Ain't Got Nuthin'", "I Do Believe", "Be Thankful You're You", "I Ain't Got Time", "Let Tomorrow Be" – plus the bonus tracks "When I Meet You", "By And By", "I Don't Care What The World May Do" and "This World Is Not My Home". LP, Vinyl record album

New VariousHillbillies – They Tried To Rock Vol 2 ... CD CD format
Bear Family (Germany), Mid 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The second volume in Bear Family's Hillbillies compilation serious of Mid 50s proto-rock from the south – with hard-grooving boogie, raw early rock & roll, and uncommonly rockin' honky tonk tunes by legends and forgotten heroes (and heroines) alike! Wonderful stuff all the way through – with tunes by western swing acts moonlightling in this new-fangled rock & roll racket, early rockabilly numbers by fellows later to become country music kingpins, and all kinds of crazy good numbers! One extra thing we love about the series is how it showcases the great female voices of the scene – this wasn't just a man's game, you should know – with great tunes by Patsy Cline, Myrna Lorrie, The Davis Sisters and other female honky tonk heroes, plus great tunes by Little Jimmy Dickens, Johnny Horton, Bob Wills, Red Foley and many more. 31 tracks in all – including "(I Got) A Hole In My Pocket" by Little Jimmy Dickens, "You Oughta See Grandma Rock" by Skeets McDonald, "Sweet Thing" by Buck Owens, "So Let's Rock" by Bob Wills", "Chicken Shack Boogie" by Leroy Van Dyke, "Going Back To The City" by Alvis Wayne and many more. They don't just try to rock, the roll the house right over! CD
