CD with 56-page booklet. Back in 1992, we decided that Rockabilly sounded good on CD, so we had the idea that we should create the all-time definitive Rockabilly series. Above all, Rockabilly was music recorded for 45RPM singles, so we designed a Rockabilly series label-by-label instead of artist-by-artist, and we compiled it for listening pleasure. Just the great stuff, plus a few super rarities. Every CD would be for the most part a 30 song jukebox of the finest Rockabilly ever recorded for all the great labels. We sourced the very best sounding tapes and took them to the best mastering engineers, and then we took the packaging to a new level. We adopted the catchphrase of the first Rockabilly dee-jay, Dewey Phillips, THAT'LL FLAT GIT IT, and we hired Bill Millar, who'd compiled the still-classic label-oriented Rockabilly LPs in the 1970s and 1980s, to write the notes. We looked for previously unpublished photos, and tried to find all the artists who'd never been found before. The result is a truly definitive series that now runs to over TWENTY-FIVE volumes. 4 Star Records out of California started in 1945 and was still going strong in the rockabilly era. Several all-time bona-fide rockabilly classics made their first appearance on the label. like Sammy Masters' Pink Cadillac and Carl Belew's 24 Hour Night. And we catch some old-time country guys trying to get with it, like T. Texas Tyler's Shake 'Em Up Rock. 4 Star also gave birth to some early rockabilly like Arkie Shibley's Hot Rod Race and the Maddox Bros. & Rose's New Step It Up And Go. It's all here. Thirty fabulous tracks where the bop never stops. As usual, there's incredible sound quality, fanatically detailed liner notes (written by award winning journalist Colin Escott), and rare photos.
