Product Notes

The second CD compilation with Rockabilly and Rock 'n' Roll recordings from the catalog of the first major label residing at the US West Coast, Capitol Records of Los Angeles.

-The first volume was released in the 90's as 'That'll Flat Git It! Vol.3' (BCD15624).

-Some of the best-known rockers of the time recorded for Capitol: Wanda Jackson, Gene Vincent, Tommy Sands, Jack Scott.

-Our compilation also presents C&W musicians like Bob Luman, Hank Thompson or Cliffie Stone - less known to Rockabilly fans but by no means musically weaker!

-Carefully restored and remastered recordings.

-DeLuxe packaging with extensive liner notes by Bill Dahl and detailed discographic information.

As the first major label based on the West Coast when it opened it's doors in 1942, Capitol Records was knee-deep in country and rockabilly throughout it's early heyday. Capitol's rockabilly legacy is amply illustrated on this exciting collection, which takes in the label's best-known rockers (Wanda Jackson, Gene Vincent, Tommy Sands, Jack Scott) as well as the no-hit wonders that makes this series so revelatory. Future country stars Jerry Reed, Roy Clark, Bob Luman, Darrell McCall, and Del Reeves, veteran C&W luminaries Skeets McDonald, Sonny James, Rose Maddox, Cliffie Stone, and Hank Thompson, and former Bill Haley bandsmen The Jodimars and Nashville's favorite backing vocalists The Jordanaires are all here rocking. So are Nick Greene, Kenny Loran, Johnny Fallin, Bobby Louis, Ronnie and Roy, and Gary Von Ilg, who all certainly deserved a higher profile than their mere handful of rare Capitol 45s received. Since Capitol maintained a sizable presence in both Los Angeles and Nashville under Ken Nelson's A&R supervision, both of those recording centers are prominent throughout this jam-packed disc. To quote Ray Stanley's raucous track on this disc, Let's Get Acquainted with Capitol's spectacular rockabilly history!
