Bob Luman: Bob Rocks

Bob Luman: Bob Rocks
Title: Bob Rocks
Label: Bear Family Germany

2008 collection. Big, good looking, a fine singer, and a hell of an entertainer. Women loved him and men admired him. Bob Luman had it all. Bob's entire recording career has been documented by Bear Family Records on two critically acclaimed box sets and a DVD of vintage performances. Now, the rockin' best of these two sets is available on a single CD, drawn largely from Luman's earliest years. These tracks, including originally unissued material, offer ample proof of why Luman is an icon to Rockabilly collectors today. You'll hear not only the finest in Luman's virile vocals, including his biggest hit 'Let's Think About Living', but also the stunning lead guitar work by the legendary James Burton. Sample the performances that led fellow Imperial Records artist Ricky Nelson to wrestle Luman's band away from him after the two men first met in Los Angeles in 1957. Included with this 36 track set is a detailed biography of the Texas rocker by music historian Hank Davis, based on exclusive interviews with Luman's friends, fellow musicians (including Burton) and family members.
