Product Description

When record labels in the city that gave birth to rock 'n' roll are called to mind, Sin, Hi and Meteor will always be in the forefront. But, as this selection shows, Fernwood certainly produced Memphis music worthy of mention. This 2 disc compilation includes hits from the likes of Johnny Cannon, The Lyrics, Barbara Perry and The Scotty Moore Trio.

Format: Audio CD
New one on me, but this collection from Fernwood (about half its total output) is another in this bargain series - the highlight for me being the Scotty Moore (long time associate and later guitarist for Elvis) Trio's "Have Guitar - Will Travel" semi-instrumental Duane Eddy-style. The label scored a US hit with "Tragedy" - not the BeeGees song, by Thomas Wayne, vaguely remember Billy Fury having a version at some stage, and even Paul McCartney and Wings covered it. I digress, this is rockabilly in the raw for the most part with some more poppy and novelty stuff. There are some duff numbers on there, but at 10p a track why quibble?

Enjoyable mixture of 50s-early 60s music, but in my opinion no unknown classics. I don't know if these tracks are selected by "One Day" as the best of Fernwoods catalogue or if that label didn't issue many records - i.e. of the 40 tracks on this compilation, there are 6 by Thomas Wayne. Good as he is/was, I am surprised there were no other artistes who came up with tracks worth a wider audience .Nevertheless, there are some good numbers here, especially instrumentals (Tarantulas, Scotty Moore, Psychos etc.), & these cds are a welcome addition to my collection. However, I assume the Dewey Phillips who appears here is the legendary DJ -if so, I now know why he was a DJ and not a singer!

A very good collection of oldies, which is good to reminisce with. Good value for money.

it sounds like somebody held a microphone up to an old record ... 6 Nov 2014

I dig everything on this compilation, except on disc 2 track 13, it sounds like somebody held a microphone up to an old record player with a bad needle and copied it. everything is cool !..Does anybody else have the same experience?

Fernwood Records. 9 Jun 2014
By THOMAS C. BIAGI - Published on Amazon.com

There was about a third of it that was good, and I figure we get both sides of records by the
better artists.
