Jumpin' Bob Gallion is best remembered for a strong of hits on Hickory in the early to mid-1960s, like Wall To Wall Love and One Way Street, but his earlier recordings for MGM from 1956-59 are revered by both fans of hardcore country and by aficionados of rockabilly and rock 'n' roll. A strong-voiced honky-tonk singer in the Hank Williams tradition, Bob Gallion dabbled convincingly with rockabilly in his earliest sessions, cutting sides like My Square Dancin' Mama (She's Done Learned To Rock 'n' Roll).
Even on his toughest, most rocking sides, however, Bob Gallion
remained a country singer in the truest sense, with a raw and classic voice. This collection contains Bob Gallion
's entire MGM output, fantastic sides like
Trademark On What I've Found, Hey, Mr. Bartender
, and Baby, Love Me
, as well as four sides never before issued - a long overdue collection by a sadly underrated singer.
