Following the overwhelming success of our 'That’ll Flat Git It' series and our 'ROCKS!' series, we’re turning our attention to the overlooked, unloved, and generally neglected country boogie. It’s a myth that
country boys didn’t get hip to the jive until Elvis came along. From the mid-1940s onward, country musicians were really shaking the shack, and that’s where we’ll be taking you: Tennessee Saturday Nights! If you’ve ever wondered where Jerry Lee Lewis, Elvis, Carl Perkins, Johnny Burnette, and other first generation rockabilly stars got half their style and half their cool, look no further than the Carlisles,
Little Jimmy Dickens, and others who’ll be coming very soon to Bear Family’s exciting new series! As always with Bear Family, the music is just the beginning. There’s the story of the musicians, the story of the music, and incredible never-before-seen photographs.
