1-CD with 20-page booklet, 27 tracks. Playing time approx. 66 mns.
There weren't many black rockabilly records, but Linda Lu was one--and it was maybe the best. Doug Sahm, Delbert McClinton and others cite it as a record that turned their heads around. The original version is here together with 27 other rare or unissued sides recorded from 1958 to 1962 for labels like Jamie, Hamilton, Trey, Gregmark and Park Central. Most of these sides were cut in Phoenix by the legendary
Lee Hazlewood, and the underground classics in this long overdue rerospective include Oh My Baby's Gone, That's The Way I Feel, Kewpie Doll, TA Blues, Red Sails In The Sunset, Long John, and Justine.
Check out one of the great original talents in rock 'n' roll!
