Artist: Bob Luman
Title: Red Hot
Style: Rock'n'roll, Rockabilly
Slowly but surely and with an impeccable taste, El Toro makes its place in the world of reissues and is now a label you have to count on.
After Buddy Holly, Pat Cupp and Johnny Burnette, the new legend to receive the El Toro treatment is Bob Luman.
Well what can I say about Luman? If you're on this website and read this lines I can, without making a big mistake, assume that you are a rockabilly fan. An wether you know Luman or not, this cd is a must have for you.
You have the complete recordings made by Luman in 1956-57 with some of the finest rock 'n' roll musicians like earl Palmer, James Burton and James Kirkland.
From early demos, with one of the best rock 'n' roll song of all times "Deep Dark Jungle", to his Imperial classics (Red Hot, Red Cadillac and a Black Moustache, All Night Long), via alternate takes, dubbed and undubbed version and unissued stuff, this is the most comprehensive set about Luman available on the market if you except expensive boxsets but this one has the advantage to concentrate on his rock'n'roll/rockabilly years.
And if you still hesitate (which seems impossible but...) El Toro has included the DVD of Carnival Rock, a rock 'n' roll movie, starring Luman, The Platters, The Blockbusters and David Houston.
