HOT RELEASES FROM BEAR FAMILY

HOT RELEASES FROM BEAR FAMILY

New Single CDs from Bob King, Margie Singleton,
Speedy West & Jimmy Bryant

BOB KING    Rockin‘ The Jukebox  (Bear Family BCD 16896 AH)
Rockin 'The Jukebox • Laurel Lee • Katie Brown • Hey Mam • A Woman's Devotion • Party Hop • Josephine • Let's Make A Fair Trade • Anxious • Pretty Little Girl Blue • Fort Worth Jail • Train's Late Tonight • I Do not Believe In Settlin 'Down • You're A Strange Little Girl • Crazy Me • I Do not See Things Through Her Eyes • Always Need A Helping Hand • Daydreamer's Blues • De-frost Your Heart • Did You Do It? • You're A Strange Little Girl (2)

The latest addition to Bear Family’s Gonna Shake This Shack series presents recordings by Bob King, culled from the RCA Victor (Canada) archives and covering the period 1955-57. Born in Ottawa, Canada, with Wilf Carter and Hank Snow as his first musical heroes, King’s initial music reflected the honky-tonk style that Hank Williams popularized on both sides of the border.

King’s association with RCA was relatively shortlived and, in spite of the rockabilly boom of the period, he basically kept his music firmly country, with his nearest concessions to rockabilly being his original Katie Brown, Rockin‘ The Jukebox and an almost note-to-note cover of Charlie Feathers‘ Sun recording Defrost Your Heart. Otherwise it was straight country with ballads like I Don’t See Things Through Her Eyes and Let’s Make A Fair Trade alongside uptempo recordings such as Anxious, Did You Do It and I Don’t Believe In Sitting Down, with an attempt to break into the pop market with another original, Josephine, his final RCA recording. He then moved on to Rodeo Records where he recorded more traditional country music, to be heard on the earlier Bear Family cds Songs That Tell A Story (BCD 15718) and Bob King & The Country Kings (BCD 15719). In spite of appearances on the Wheeling Jamboree and as a member of Wilma Lee and Stoney Cooper’s band, the Clinch Mountain Clan, King never broke to American audiences but enjoyed a loyal following North of the 49th Parallel.

Randy Fox provides biographical and session details, together with photographs and a discography, in the accompanying 26 page booklet.


SPEEDY WEST & JIMMY BRYANT  Bustin‘ Thru – Flippin‘ The Lid  (Bear Family BCD 17335 AH)
Flippin' The Lid • Stratosphere Boogie • Jelly Beans Daddy • Bryant's Boogie • Lover • Wild And Woolly West • Hawaiian War Chant • The Night Rider • Ain't Nobody's Business But My Own (vocal: KAY STARR & 'TENNESSEE' ERNIE FORD) • This Ain't The Blues • Bryant's Shuffle • Cotton Pickin' • Steel Guitar Rag • Water Baby Blues • Totem Pole Dance • On The Beach Of Waikiki • Truck Driver's Ride • Boogie Barn Dance • Wild Card (vocal: TEX WILLIAMS) • Okie Boogie (vocal: ELLA MAE MORSE) • Jammin' With Jimmy • Sand Canyon Swing • Hop, Skip And Jump • Yodeling Guitar • I've Turned A Gadabout (vocals: EDDIE KIRK, MARILYN TUTTLE; leader: SPIKE JONES) • Speedy's Special • Space Man In Orbit • Swingin' On The Strings • Pushin' The Blues • Speedin' West • Twice The Lovin' (In Half The Time) (vocal: JEAN SHEPARD) • Hillcrest (Opus 3) • Pickin' Peppers • This Must Be The Place (vocals: 'TENNESSEE' ERNIE FORD & BETTY HUTTON)

The West Coast’s recording sessions thrived on many outstanding musicians, several becoming stars in their own right, most notable Glen Campbell. Probably less known to the general public, but right at the top of their profession, were Speedy West (steel guitar) and Jimmy Bryant (electric guitar) who, in the field of hot guitar and steel guitar teams, set the standards that others could only wish to emulate. Both coming up through the country music ranks, they combined forces in 1949 and soon earned their glowing reputations by injecting hot solos in the recording sessions of various Capitol Records‘ artists.

Frequently fast and jazzy, they recorded just over sixty instrumentals during the period 1950-56, having secured a Capitol deal after their distinctive work on “Tennessee“ Ernie Ford and Kay Starr’s hit record I’ll Never Be Free (included here). Well representing their innovative work are such tracks as Flippin‘ The Lid, Stratosphere Boogie, Lover, Steel Guitar Rag and Hop, Skip and Jump while Truck Driver’s Ride, On The Beach Of Waikiki and Totem Pole Dance present different aspects of their work. Plus there’s a few tracks illustrating their skills as session musicians, accompanying such as Ella Mae Morse (Okie Boogie), Jean Shepard (Twice The Lovin‘) and another “Tennessee“ Ernie Ford duet, This Must Be The Place, this time in the company of Betty Hutton.

A detailed biography by Deke Dickerson, alongside information on the recordings and instruments, photographs and discography appear in the set’s 38 page accompanying booklet. For more of the unique Speedy West – Jimmy Bryant sound, Bear Family has available a 4 cd (with 56 page) box set Flamin‘ Guitars (BCD 15956 DI).


MARGIE SINGLETON   Pledging My Love (Bear Family BCD 17302 AH)
Chained To A Promise • Forget Me Not (remix) • Living In The Danger Zone • Her Image Keeps Getting In The Way • I Do not Have To Look Pretty (To Stay Home And Cry) • I Knew I Would See Him Again • It's Too Much (3rd vocal) • How Lonely She Must Be • There You Go • Sincerely Your Friend • Poor Man's Roses • Your Old Love Letters • Pledging My Love • I'll Just Walk On By • I Do not Want You This Way • No Thanks, I Just Had One (& Faron Young) • Magic Star (Telstar) • Walkin 'Back To Happiness • Do not Be Good To Me • Another Woman's Man, Another Man's Woman (& Faron Young) • The Cypress Tree • Only Your Shadow Knows • Burnt Fingers • How Do You Celebrate Goodbye • Are You Ever Too Young? • She Will Break Your Heart • Voices Of Love • Love • De-stination Toss A Pebble In The Water • I Do not Have To Look Pretty (To Stay Home And Cry) (single vocal)

Although she never was a major chart artist, Louisiana born Margaret Louis Ebey (who – with a name change - became Margie Singleton, when she married childhood sweetheart Shelby Singleton) did enjoy over a dozen hits on a handful of record labels. This collection, the latest in Bear Family’s Juke Box Pearls series, brings together 30 tracks recorded for Mercury during the early 1960s, the label where hubbie was the Country & Western A&R man.

Hardly mentioned in the reference books these days, she first gained attention on the Louisiana Hayride which led on to a Starday (later Mercury) recording contract – a deal that also opened doors for her husband.

The recordings collected here display another instance of the then growing Nashville Sound, with material  originating out of both country (Poor Man’s Roses, Your Old Love Letters, There You Go, Living In The Danger Zone) and pop (Chained To A Promise, She Will Break Your Heart, Pledging My Love, Walkin‘ Back To Happiness) realms. When later discussing her career, Singleton stated that she didn’t try to fit any particular genre. She co-wrote several of the songs and there’s also a couple of chart duets with Faron Young, No Thanks, I Just Had One and Another Woman’s Man, Another Man’s Woman. As these tracks reveal, Margie Singleton is an artist well deserving of far greater attention. Her story is told by Jewly Hight in the accompanying 34 page booklet which includes comments from the singer and accompanied by photographs and a discography.
