The Long Ear

-In the 1950s, the major Hollywood film studios established their own record companies, primarily to market the soundtracks from their films on record. -Bear Family Recordsr dedicates the now already 39th edition in the 'That'll Flat Git It!' series to rockers from the United Artists Records catalog. -Since late 1957, great recordings of rockabilly and rock and roll singers appeared there, many of whom moved on to other companies after one or two singles. -But even later popular names like Al Casey, George Jones or Delbert McClinton recorded for United Artists. -The liner notes in the as usual extensive and illustrated booklet are written by Bill Dahl, the recordings are from the best possible sources and have been carefully edited. One of a new generation of film studio-operated U.S. major labels during the late 1950s along with 20th Century Fox and Warner Bros., United Artists Records concentrated largely on soundtrack albums during it's first few years of operations but tried to cut hit pop singles too, and the company's interest in rock and roll was obvious from the outset near the close of 1957. The latest entry in Bear Family Recordsr' 'That'll Flat Git It' series surveys UA's fascinating early rock and roll catalog, full of promising singers that only cut one or two splendid singles for the imprint (Chuck Wiley, Ronnie Brent, Warren Miller, Wes Bryan, Hunt Stevens, Brein Fisher, Wendell Smith, The Four J's) before moving on, along with a handful of better-known names (Al Casey, George Jones, Delbert McClinton's Straitjackets) on hand for good measure. Lee Hazlewood and his then-partner Lester Sill produced a handful of late '50s rockers for UA, and there are even tastes of belting Chicago R&B (Joyce Davis' Superman) and atmospheric Gulf Coast swamp pop (Gene Thomas' Sometime) aboard this essential collection.
