Diesel Smoke, Dangerous Curves - Pioneers Of Trucking Music In The USA Diesel Smoke, Dangerous Curves - Pioneers Of Trucking Music In The USA : VARIOUS ARTISTS : 2CD
By the mid-1930s the trucking boom had made enough of an impact on the social mores of the US to have a dance named after it and 'trucking' was celebrated in song form by the likes of Fats Waller, Al Miller, Smokey Wood, and The Modern Mountaineers. The most famous song regarding the dance was recorded by Piedmont Blues pioneer Blind Boy Fuller and his 'Truckin' My Blues Away' contained the phrase ''keep on truckin'' which would later provide underground graphic artist Robert Crumb with the text for his famed image that was to be found, and still is, on the mud flaps of many a trucker.

First Taste Of Love (1958 -1960) First Taste Of Love (1958 -1960) : BEN E. KING : CD
Although Ben E. King's name is wholly synonymous with that of The Drifters, the reality is that he only actually sang on a dozen Drifters tracks - indeed, he'd effectively left the group after their first hit together. Ben E. King would, of course, go on to enjoy a massive career - as, indeed, would The Drifters - and both are still active to this day. But the body of work he recorded during 1959/60 was truly exceptional, and included many of his own and The Drifters' respective career benchmark recordings.

Friction Heat (1953 - 1958) Friction Heat (1953 - 1958) : BONNIE LOU : CD
Swinging Country Rhythm - Bonnie Lou's recorded output in the 1950s occupied that small niche of early country rockers that eschewed the backwoods hillbilly boogie style and, instead, created something more unique. Featuring a swinging country rhythm overlaid with horn solos and King's trademark handclap boosted offbeat, Bonnie's sound was often closer to Bill Haley than that of the other mid-west rockabillies. Up until now, Bonnie Lou's classic King and Fraternity tracks from the 1950s have not been well-served by the reissue labels. This compilation finally re-releases the very best of her best material, so if you like a steady diet of good 1950s country, pop, rockabilly, doowop and rock 'n' roll - or a pleasing mixture of all those elements - you're in for a treat.
