Description

Not for nothing were Rose Maddox and her 'Four Big Brothers' known as 'The Most Colourful Hillbilly Band In America'. Their loud and lively recordings and even louder and livelier stage antics lit up the West coast of America in the 1940s and up to the mid-1950s, during which time they recorded hundreds of great sides that sold in their thousands without ever making a chart of any kind.

The Maddox Brothers and Rose were unique among their peers. Nobody had a stage act that looked like theirs, nobody's records sounded like theirs. Nobody could follow them, nobody could imitate them. Their audio legacy is preserved in part in "You Won't Believe This", Jasmine's new anthology of the later years of their career, which covers their 1950s output and also includes the best recordings the Brothers made without Rose and vice versa.

As well as showcasing Rose's exceptional and influential vocal and her brothers' instrumental skills, this compilation features primarily up-tempo material from the group - including tracks that have made them eternally popular on the rockabilly scene such as 'Ugly And Slouchy', 'Dig A Hole', 'Hey Little Dreamboat' and the skewed classic 'The Death Of Rock 'n' Roll'.

This part of their career has not been as well served on single CD as their earlier years have - and "You Won't Believe This" does much to put that right. As always, the audio is remastered from the best possible sources and the booklet features a comprehensive biography of this fabulous family band, for whom every session sounded like a party and frequently was! Until you hear it, you really won't 'Believe This'!
