Editorial Reviews

All the Vik tracks and alternate takes from this Louisiana rockabilly legend, recorded in 1956. These are among the most legendary rockabilly records of all time, and - until we found him - Joe Clay was one of rockabilly's great mysteries. Who was he? Where did he go? Where was he from? This set has all the answers, as well as all those incredibly rare RCA recordings and previously unissued out-takes. Songs include Get On The Right Track, Did You Mean Jelly Bean, Sixteen Chicks, Skipping Out And Sneaking In, and Cracker Jack. Wild! Really wild!

I bought this CD because having heard of Joe Clay, but never actually HEARD him, I decided to take a chance on it. He sounds like a cross betweeen early Elvis and Carl Perkins, which is not surprising, since Joe Clay started out at the same time as both of those R&R icons, in fact, even appeared on the legendary Louisiana Hayride on the same bill with Elvis in 1956. This music rocks. You can't help but love this music, your feet will be tapping unconsciously before you know it. Highly recomended.

Format: Audio CD
I first heard many of these recordings when RCA released the double disc vinyl rockabilly retrospective called "Get Hot or Go Home" more than a decade ago. It remains one of the main reasons I still use my turntable. This may seem like a tremendous amount of money to spend on such a short disc (this disc in its entirety made up side one of Get Hot) but it is more than made up for in the timeless raw energy contained within. That phrase has been bandied about quite a bit in reference to classic rockabilly, but this is what they're talking about. The sessions with Mickey Baker (guitar) are the holy grail of this music and are absolutely incendiary. Standouts are Right Track, Cracker Jack, and Sixteen Chicks. Even the novelty title track will grow on you. Get it.

Very wild rockabilly. Rudy Grazell's Ducktail is a classic. He recorded with some of the finest black rhythm musicians of the time (guitarist Mickey Baker from Mickey & Sylvia, guitarist Skeeter Best, bassist Leonard Gaskin, and drummers Bobby Donaldson and Joe Marshall). A little short collection but very good! And he wasn't famous till 1986 when some english promoter arranged him a tour of England. Can you imagine that?
