Best known today as a reissue producer and music journalist, Hank Davis was making Sun-sounding records when he was a teenager in New York in the 1950s. This CD documents his surprising career from the earliest rockers to his latter-day late-night, bluesy music. Without a hit record to his name, Hank has recorded throughout a six decade period. An on-line discography lists well over 200 recordings, appearing almost randomly on numerous compilation CDs, LPs and singles. Some of this music is quite collectable and all of it is interesting. It's what the critics today call 'authentic music': honest and underproduced.
For the first time, Bear Family offers a generous sample of Hank's rare singles, unissued masters and rough demos revealing the depth of a largely undocumented and fascinating career. The accompanying book is richly illustrated with vintage photographs and previously unpublished interview material. This one will surprise even hardcore '50s collectors.
