Elvis' co-star on the Louisiana Hayride
A rockabilly pioneer
Rockabilly fans have been clamoring for his Mercury recordings on CD!
The CD contains his complete recordings for Mercury, 'D', Jin and Todd.
Although he charted no hits and died in obscurity, there's a cult following for Cajun-born Tibby Edwards. He was on the Louisiana Hayride radio barndance before Elvis and got a first-hand look at the birth of rock 'n' roll. Seeing Elvis, he became one of the very first country performers to really understand rock 'n' roll and declare himself for the new music. His early cover version of Flip Flop And Fly and his recording of George Jones' Play It Cool Man are acknowledged rockabilly classics. Back in 1985, Bear Family issued a Tibby Edwards LP, and now, in response to fan requests, we're reissuing it on CD… but we've augmented it with all of Tibby Edward's Mercury recordings plus his singles for 'D', Jin, and Todd. In other words, everything he ever recorded.
