AVID are rightly proud of our extensive catalogue of Classic music released over the last 20 years or so. We have covered most genres on our musical journey, from classical to nostalgia and easy listening, blues to R N B, folk to country and the world of dance bands, swing bands and of course jazz. We’ve even been involved in Films, Shows, Childrens tunes and Sound Effects! And yet there are still some areas of music, some genres that we haven’t quite reached yet. So for this release we are featuring a musical genre that sits somewhere between country, rock n roll and maybe a little pop, ROCKABILLY! Not many of the great rockabilly artists got to make albums back in the heyday of rockabilly. It was primarily a singles driven movement. However the five classic artists featured here all were lucky enough to make an album, some even made more and went on to have pretty good careers after the music had moved on. Of our featured rockabilly artists, arguably the most famous was Johnny Burnette (brother of Dorsey), who indeed did go on to make quite a few albums before tragically dying in a boating accident at 30 years of age in 1964. Ronnie Hawkins was another singer to have a lengthy career and in fact is still active today at the age of 85! Hawkins of course, later became better known as the leader who found and nurtured the guys who would become the legendary rock outfit The Band, famed as Bob Dylan’s backing band in the mid sixties and in their own right as one of the best and most influential American bands ever. Rounding off our classic album set we feature lone albums by Carl Mann and Buddy Knox and a taste of the great Ray Smith who would also go on to have a lengthy musical career. We hope you enjoy our first journey into the exciting world of Rockabilly , and we haven’t even touched on Jack Scott yet!
