Product description

Product Description

Ace Records has two volumes of Vocals by the Fireballs, that cover most of the combo’s output, but recent investigations into the Norman Petty vaults have uncovered a slew of fine unissued material by this consummate group, the cream of which is gathered on "Firebeat!".

The CD focuses on the tougher side of the Fireballs studio career during the mid-1960s, as they came to terms with the impact of the British Invasion, and made some fine beat group-styled recordings of their own. We feature here rockin’ covers of items by the Knickerbockers, Paul Revere & The Raiders, Beach Boys and others, as well as punchy, guitar-fuelled workouts on ‘Kansas City’ and ‘Summertime Blues’, and strong British-flavoured original material such as ‘Never You Mind’ and ‘Come To Me’.

Fireballs vocalist Jimmy Gilmer is to the fore, indulging his love of folk rock on superb versions of ‘Codine’ and ‘Thunder & Lightnin’’, not to mention an alternate version of the group’s swansong hit ‘Bottle Of Wine’. Original Fireballs frontman Chuck Tharp also weighs-in with ‘Tough Times’, a 1964 session where he is backed by his former bandmates. Most tracks on "Firebeat!" are making their debut on CD, and the sound quality on all is second-to- none, showcasing the masterful production skills of Norman Petty.

As an added bonus, the enhanced portion of the CD features colour footage of the Fireballs performing three songs from a Texas TV pop show circa 1968, including ‘Bottle Of Wine’. As clips of the band in their heyday are few and far between, this element alone will ensure that "Firebeat!" is an attractive proposition for Fireballs fans. The quality package, illustrated with rare photos and accompanied by a lengthy note with fresh quotes from all the band, makes it an all round must-have.
