Description

When the first Rockabilly revival hit the UK and Europe in the early-mid 1970s, a clutch of singles by a then-unknown singer by the name of Andy Starr formed part of the first wave of highly prized 45rpm rarities. It soon became apparent that further 45s bearing the name of Frankie or Frank Starr were the work of the same man. Despite never having a US hit or a UK release, Franklin Delano Gulledge was quickly elevated to Rockabilly's upper pantheon based on a handful of magical singles.

More than 40 years later, those records are still highly prized and regularly danced to in rock 'n' roll clubs all over the world. Andy Starr himself is sadly no longer with us, but his small and important legacy lives on every time a rockin' DJ drops his stylus on 'Rockin' Rollin' Stone', 'She's A Going Jessie', 'Dig Them Squeaky Shoes' and other similarly potent recordings.

Every important side from Starr's catalogue is included in this Jasmine collection - which as always is remastered from the finest available sources, and features the usual informative booklet notes that our customers have come to expect.

Andy Starr might not have had the commercial impact that his records thoroughly deserved to bring him, but the 'Rockin' Rollin' Stone's name will be held in high esteem as long as people get together to dance to straight ahead Texas hillbilly with a beat.
