Description

Although something of an 'unknown quantity' to the general public, Jimmie Logsdon is revered among collectors of hillbilly and country music for a significant quantity of classic recordings - many of them up-tempo 'boppers' - that he cut under his own name in the first half of the 1950s.

Jimmie is even more revered by rock 'n' roll collectors for two 45s that he released under the name of 'Jimmy Lloyd' in 1957. 'Where The Rio De Rosa Flows' and 'I Got A Rocket In My Pocket' are both 100% classics that will bring any rockin' dance floor to life, even 65 years after they were recorded. 'Jimmy' was already in his 30s when he cut them, and unlikely to challenge Elvis as a chart contender - but he rocked as hard as any of the younger guns, as you will hear in this new Jasmine collection of Jimmie's (and Jimmy's!) recorded highlights, spanning a decade of record making.

It's been some years since any of his recordings were first digitised, so 'You're Gone Baby' - the most career spanning collection of Jimmie's 45s to date - will be warmly welcomed throughout the rock 'n' roll and country collecting communities. When you hear these high-quality recordings, almost all of them made in Nashville with a crack team of 'A' list studio musicians of the calibre of Chet Atkins, Grady Martin, Floyd Cramer and Buddy Harman, you will wonder just how come so much great music went largely unheralded at the time of release.

Jimmie may be something of a footnote in the histories of both hillbilly and rock 'n' roll, but he played a not insignificant part on the evolution of both and what's on offer here will forever stand as prime examples of wither or both genres.

As with all Jasmine CDs, here's vintage music of the highest quality, brought to you in the highest quality, mastered from the best possible sources and coming to you with an expertly annotated booklet.
