Legendary British rock n roll dynamo Stuart Colman revisits Texas in the latest instalment of his spectacular Sugar series. Along with the recent Fantastic Voyage compilations Texas Tornados and It s Saturday Night!, Snazzy Sugar continues highlighting the Lone Star State s pivotal role in the birth of rock n roll, its 75 incendiary tracks demonstrating how, when the music was in its multi-hued infancy across the US, West Texas was rearing up with the real call of the wild. The eruptions which burst out of Memphis, Cleveland and New York in the fifties are well-documented but, over three CDs, Colman has excelled himself with this astutely-picked and exhaustively annotated selection, showing the crucial role of western swing in rock n roll s development, timeless rebel yell energy, uniquely idiosyncratic personality and a dash of Southern romance. Disc 1 (Right To Rock) gets the vibrant mix of future stars and intriguing obscurities under way with immortal Fender Stratocaster-toting pioneer Buddy Holly s I m Gonna Love You Too and the young Roy Orbison s Ooby Dooby before traversing gems by the likes of Link Davis, Trini Lopez, Waylon Jennings, Sonny Curtis, the Crickets, Lelan Rogers, the Fireballs, the Five Bops, the Click-Clacks and the Leen Teens. The good rocking continues through CD2 (Play it Cool), thrusting forth such names as Chuck Tharp, Sid King, Ray Campi, Link Davis, Mickey Gilley, Buddy Knox, the Tu-Tones, the Champs and Dean Beard with the Crew Cuts. The Cowtown heavy-hitters continue their rampage on Disc 3 (aptly-titled Turn Me Loose), corralling names including Jimmy Dee & the Offbeats, Joe Clay, Sleepy La Beef, Al Urban, Hal Goodson & the Raiders, Teen Kings, Alvis Wayne, Tooter Boatman & the Chaparrals, the String-a-Lings, the Fireballs, Earl Henry and an early Kenny Rogers outing called That Crazy Feeling , before Buddy Holly returns with Well...Alright , winding up this glorious new artefact for the rock n roll hall of fame.
