Description

Janis Martin is acknowledged as the very first female rock 'n' roller, having signed with a major record label in 1956 when she was just sixteen.

Marketed as "The Female Elvis", she cut some of the best, most collectable R&R and Rockabilly records of the era. Indeed, the South African 10" LP "Janis & Elvis", which featured four tracks by each artist, was for many years the most sought-after R&R artefact in the record collecting world (Janis' four sides are included herein).

Recorded in Nashville and New York, with A-team sessions bands including men like Chet Atkins; Grady Martin; Hank Garland; George Barnes; Floyd Cramer; Shorty Long; Buddy Harman and Bunny Shawker, these are exquisite recordings.

This 33 track CD comprises everything that Janis recorded between 1956 & 1958, and the four sides she recorded for the Belgian Palette label in 1960. If that wasn't enough we have also included a trio of previously unreleased radio broadcasts from 1957, making this a truly unique package.
