Product Type: VINYL LP

10" LP in a gatefold cover with rare country boogie. Richard Weize, creative mastermind of legendary label BEAR FAMILY and one of Germany's most renowned music experts, presents some rare, unheard and often unreleased recordings on his new label RICHARD WEIZE ARCHIVES. This is the first in a series of 10" albums which will explore post war country boogie recordings. Due to post war austerity maintaining a large band was too costly and the result was the beginning of small combos. The cowboy singers had to be heard and amplification of the instruments was replacing the acoustic cowboy sound, they had to play louder at Juke Joints to be heard over the often rowdy crowds. The music itself is a wonderful rhythmic fusion of hillbilly and western music blended with black blues and rhythm influences. The album is informatively annotated by Kevin Coffey offering fascinating insights into the artist's music and the musicians who provided the compelling rhythms. The 100g, 10" vinyl album is housed in a high quality gatefold sleeve which opens out to display numerous vintage images with many rare photographs to add a face to the music.
