Label: Bear Family
Product Type: COMPACT DISCS

-Bear Family's revisit to the history of the Texas TNT label in our unique CD series 'That'll Flat Git It!' focuses on the rockers Robert Tanner produced in the 1950s. -The most important label from Southwest Texas at the time released outstanding recordings by country legends, rockabilly greats and accomplished rock 'n' rollers. -Bill Anderson, Ray Campi, Jimmy Dee, Glenn Reeves, Roy Head - just to throw a few names into the ring. -Extensive liner notes by music historian Bill Dahl with the story of TNT Records and detailed notes on each recording in the comprehensive, fully illustrated booklet, which comes with a high-quality 6-page Digipak. The vast Texas recording legacies of Houston and Dallas have been celebrated for more than half a century, and rightly so-the Lone Star State's expansive musical smorgasbord is as impressive and wide-ranging as that of any state in America. But what of San Antonio, currently America's seventh largest metropolis? It's high time to pay tribute to San Antonio's top label during the 1950s, Robert Tanner's TNT Records-and that's exactly what Bear Family is doing with the latest entry in it's celebrated 'That'll Flat Git It' series. It's jam-packed with country legends (Leon Payne, Bill Anderson, Lonnie Lillie), raging rockabilly (Ray Campi, Cecil Moore, Jerry Dove, The Delatones, Dan Virva), and thundering R&B-laced rock and roll (Glenn Reeves, Ray Liberto, The Blue Notes, Jimmy Dee, Johnny Olenn and The Jokers, and Roy Head's group, The Traits), nearly all of it sinfully rare. Tanner had the San Antonio recording scene all sewn up from 1953 into the early '60s - and his TNT label packed sonic dynamite!
