[ Bearfamily17116 ]
Price: $20.00

A wondrous CD reissue containing all the fabulous rocking R&B music Billy Adams made for Sun Records - and all the little-known sides he made for Home Of The Blues and Pixie Records. Adams led one of Memphis' best working bands from the turn of the '60s, captured here in its heyday by a number of local record labels. His band features prominent Memphis session players including Lee Adkins, Jesse Carter, and Russ Carlton. Here are all four of his Sun singles, three unissued alternative takes, and an astonishing 14 unissued songs recorded by Sam Phillips in the early 1960s, including the renowned versions of Betty And Dupree and Rock Me Baby. Plus: three very rare singles on the Home Of The Blues and Pixie labels and two previously unissued songs. The booklet by Martin Hawkins brings together all that is known about Adams and his music from a myriad of sources, new and old. The booklet also contains rare photographs........
