Product Notes

Bear Family explore the legacy of Hank Cochran who was always in heart a country artist and after his association with Eddie Cochran ended, returned to his real love country music. Conversely some recordings retained a rockabilly-ish feel and teen beat tempos were also recorded. From his first solo demo session held sometime during 1957, at the Gold Star Recording Studios (where many rock 'n' roll recording sessions were held) Hank recorded four songs. 'Half Of The Time', 'Everyone's Laughing' (both one version) and perhaps better known by Glen Glenn, the mid-tempo rocker 'Goofin' Around' (three versions, take 2 and 3 are used) and finally 'Left Out' a melodic teen rocker (three versions, take 2 and 3 are used). A vocal technic and style similarity to that of Wynn Stewart should be gained from hearing the first two recordings, and on many of the other shuffle tempo recordings. Hank returned to ' Goofin' Around' during a 1958 two song session issued on 'Dore 508', here the song is re-worked with saxophone and thrashing drums as a flip to country weeper 'Don't Apologize'. Harlan Howard another respected country writer penned two teen/country rockers, which were perfect for Hanks melodic voice which fits to the songs like a glove to the hand. From a November 7, 1961 session 'Has Anybody Seen Me Lately', and from February 1, 1962 session the often-covered 'Sally Was A Good Ole Girl'. From Antoon van Olderen discography, the sessions were held in music city USA, Nashville Tennessee! Therefore the inclusion of a song again from the pen of Harlan Howard paying tribute to one of the city's most famous drinking joints 'Tootsie's Orchid Lounge' is more than fitting, and finds Hank more forceful vocally during this drinking ditty.
