Have Blues - Will Travel 1949-1962


A bona-fidé Country legend, Eddie Noack was a hard-livin', old school Honky-Tonk singer, songwriter and performer, this compilation comprises his singles' releases between 1949 and 1962, across seven different record labels, Gold Star, 4-Star, TNT, Starday, "D", Mercury and Allstar.

Included are his biggest hit, 'Have Blues - Will Travel', as well as his infamous "rogue" Rockabilly 45rpm, 'Can't Play Hookey' b/w 'My Steady Dream', issued under the pseudonym "Tommy Wood" in 1958.

Noack stuck to his traditional musical guns in the face of a constantly changing late '50s/early '60s Country music scene, as a result he didn't achieve the commercial success he perhaps deserved, although his recorded legacy is held in the highest esteem.

Ironically, over the years, sides like 'Hungry But Happy', 'Too Hot To Handle', 'Take It Away Lucky', 'The Worm Has Turned', 'Scarecrow' and 'Shotgun House' have become much sought-after collectors' items.
