Tennessee Rock 'n' Billy 1955


Hillbilly & Rockabilly from Tennessee. 33 tracks, 8 page booklet with interesting liner notes from Dave Penny. "It started with the Chattanooga Shoe Shine Boy..." according to The Sons Of The Pioneers, and there is no doubt that the exciting Hillbilly Boogie style of the late 1940s and early 1950's had a huge influence on the rockabilly artists who would later record for iconic Memphis labels like Sun and Meteor. With the overnight success of Elvis in 1954, all over Tennessee (and just over the border in Mississippi) small labels sprang up to accommodate the steady stream of talented young hillbilly boppers that walked through the door with an eye on a chance at the big time.
