This exciting 28 track CD reveals a completely unknown chapter in the already implausible story of The Prisonaires, the prison inmates from Nashville who got onto Sun Records in Memphis in 1953 and whose best song, 'Just Walkin' in the Rain', became an international pop hit for Johnny Ray. On this CD you'll find: 11 astonishing songs from an unissued 'concert' recorded at the Tennessee State Penitentiary - featuring several Prisonaires members never heard until now. Fascinating spoken introductions to the songs by second tenor Alfred Brooks and a message from the penitentiary warden Lynn Bomar. Six alternative versions of songs recorded for Sun Records. All 11 vocal group tracks by the Solotones and the Marigolds (renamed versions of The Prisonaires led by Johnny Bragg). Bear Family.
