Artist: CHARLIE FEATHERS
Title: CAN'T HARDLY STAND IT THE COMPLETE 50'S RECORDINGS
Style: 50's Rockabilly - Hillbilly
May the gods of Rock'n'roll bless ElToro. Here you have the complete 50's recordings of Charlie Feathers, in other words "the ultimate rockabilly album" :47 songs from the best stylist of the genre, a great country singer (Sam Phillips once said "He could have been the George Jones of his day.") and an even greater rockabilly singer, the man that brought up the hiccup to the rank of art. His singles for Sun, Meteor and King are now legendary. They're all here of course, and much more, including numerous alternate takes and demos (I've Been Deceived, Runnin Around, Defrost Your Heart, Bottle to the Baby).
Also present are songs he played as a guest musician like Jody Chastain's single on Kay on which he played rhythm guitar and The Miller Sisters'debut featuring Charlie on spoons. A 8 page booklet completes this absolute must have.

El Toro Records release a big bunch of original recordings at the moment. Bran new is this double Cd of Charlie Feathers. Since decades Charlie Feaths is rated as "King Of Rockabilly" by legions of fans, other ones just lifted him into the status of "God". Well, without doubt Charlie Feather was an is a monument in the world of Rockabilly.
With this El Toro release you get the essence (47 songs /outtakes / demos etc. incl. Miller Sisters stuff with feathers playin' spoons etc. etc. ) of all this releases packed on 2 CD's.
The main question is, if we need taht release which contain already released material. For sure, all teh collector and older cats & Kittens will have all this stuff in their vinyl collections, but specially for all the people who joined the scene in the last couple years and just buying CD's, thhis double pck is a great chance to get as much 50's Charlie Feathers as possible and an important part of Rockabilly history, just for a fistful of Euros. With an informative booklet and well done art work, it's a nice release
