(1-CD DigiPac 52-page Booklet, 34 song titles. Length: 84:33). -- ''But what Songs do fit actually I was asked, ''Ella Mae Morse; once their sponsor, the composer, singer and Label Boss Johnny Mercer. After he said that a certain song may not be suitable for you. He is not the only one who had tried to insert, singer in a stylistic drawer. Ella: 'Cliffie Stone called me a Country-singer, Benny Carter gave me a Jazz singer and T-Bone Walker was sure I was a Rock 'n' Roll and Black Blues singer.' They were all right. Their versatility was the big plus from Ella Mae Morse, but also their biggest Problem. Morse was in the Swing era as an artist grown-up, and their own taste tended more to Blues, Swing Jazz and dreamy Ballads. But apart from its 1942er Jive-Blues-Novelty Hit Cow Cow Boogie (the big breakthrough came). Curiously always remembered less for their early attempts in the styles than to their R&B, Rock 'n' Roll and Hillbilly-Boogie-title from the 1950s. -
This compilation gathered many of its rock & roll and intense swinging recordings, the Music Historian Bill Millar chose them. It presents the whole range of Cow Cow Boogie, to Star made up to Cover versions earlier R&B and Rock 'n' Roll titles such as Money Honey, Have Mercy Baby and Ain't That A Shame. The crucial link between these different directions was the classic, always marschierende Piano and vocal feats from the early postwar period as The House Of Blue Lights and A Little Further Down The Road A Piece - many of them with Freddie Slack, the great Boogie-Woogie-Stilisten, with the Morse celebrated their greatest successes.

(1-CD DigiPac, 4-page mit 32-sided Booklet, 29 song titles. Spieldauer: 87:59). -- Die beiden seltenen und gesuchten Mojo-Alben sind zum ersten Mal seit 30 Jahren wieder erhältlich. Auf 'Vintage', dem Rock 'n' Roll-Album, ist die Rockabilly-Legende Larry Donn dabei, dessen rockendes Piano Riley unterstützt, wie der sich in 30 Minuten durch zehn Rock 'n' Roll-Klassiker powert. Riesig!!! 'Southern Soul At The Brave-Falcon' präsentiert 12 weitere hypnotische Songs, die bluesig, shuffelnd und rockend unter die Haut gehen. Man riecht förmlich die Magnolien des Südens.... Mit dabei auch die seltene Mojo-Single unter dem Pseudonym Skip Wiley sowie einige unveröffentlichte Tracks, darunter eine längere Fassung von seinem Chuck Berry Medley. -- Der verstorbene Billy Lee Riley war einer der gigantischsten, aber ewig unterschätzten Rock 'n' Roll-Pioniere. Er sah besser aus als Carl Perkins, sein vielfältiges Können als Instrumentalist hat Elvis' übertroffen, sein Selbstvertrauen war noch größer als das eines Jerry Lee Lewis. Und er war für Sun Records wichtiger als andere. Rileys Musiker, wurden als Sessionplayer vereinnahmt und haben den Rock 'n' Roll, weitaus mehr als populäre Bands beeinflußt. - Wie viele seiner bekannter gewordenen Kollegen machte auch Riley nach seiner Sun-Zeit weiter. Diese CD mit 29 Titeln enthält zwei unterschiedliche, aber zugleich vielseitige Alben, die im Abstand von 14 Jahren entstanden sind. 'Vintage' von 1980 wiederbelebt einige ohnehin unsterbliche Rock 'n' Roll-Klassiker, befeuert durch das in Europa neu erweckte Interesse an Rockabilly und Sun Records. 'Southern Soul At The Brave-Falcon' versammelt R&B-Standards, Top-40-Songs und Rileys eigene Kompositionen - all das als Livemitschnitt aus einem Nachtclub: Nur wenig klang in jener Zeit besser! Es ist aufregender, auf Blues und Boogie basierender Soul - und wenn Riley ausruft 'Do the Temptation Walk', sind wir plötzlich wieder in den mittsechziger Jahren. - Klar, daß Bear Family wie gewohnt einige Extras beisteuert - zum Beispiel eine längere, unbearbeitete Fassung vom Chuck Berry Medley, etliche bisher unveröffentlichte Songs sowie die seltene Mojo-Single, die Riley unter dem Pseudonym Skip Wiley veröffentlicht hat.

Cylia Noel – Tears In The Rain

Cylia Noel is a new artist at the stars. Their album "Tears In The Rain" has produced it herself and the songs come from her. Although it is not a real country album, so it is always worth a mention. Her voice and the content of the songs are outstanding, so it is only a matter of time before a major record company should learn of them.

James Otto is honestly the greatest artist of his kind, the question of who towers him in the country music is, he has more he has to smile about and be happy, for his body size is already huge. In 2008 he released the album "Sunset Man", which met the high expectations of him. With the album "Shake What God Gave Ya" top it off. He is and presents the music world as a country soul artist. "Shake What God Gave Ya" was in Nashville, TN, along with Paul Worley, who has been producing for Big & Rich, Lady Antebellum and many more.

Rural Rhytham Records are among the record companies who took the bluegrass music written on the flag. In the past, they brought with them many artists to sign a record deal. In the meantime, they have discovered the Christian Blue Grass Music for themselves and founded an extra-Lable "Rural Rhythm Christian". It is represented on the compilation "Look To The Light", songs with lyrics that deal with God and have their musical origins in Blue Grass. Published not now under the new Lable, but rather under Rural Rhytham Recrods who are already listed above artists. How should it be different, all in Bluegrass Music classify and High quality makes them shine.

Trace Adkins won yet more new worlds. For a long time, he was the leading male star of country music, a man who made his incredible presence and unique baritone to a pillar of the current Nashville sound. But he has other gifts: a restless intellect, wide-ranging interests and a great talent as a speaker, which made it almost inevitable that his influence has spread beyond the borders of the genre. With the album "Cowboy's Back In Town" followed by another hit album. In an extensive interview he comments on his album, which is available at: http://www.countryhome.de/interviews/interview_deu_2010/trace_adkins_2010.htm
and hence no need any for a CD presentation. Because who has a better idea than a CD Trace Adkins himself.
