Rockabilly Stars, Volume 1

One of the worst rockabilly comps I ever saw. The first track is a live straight country music recording (an opening tune for the Town Hall Party) and then there are some original rockabilly songs from the fifties or early sixties. But the second half of the disc contains only 1970s and 1980s re-recordings from such artists as Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash and Mac Curtis. Not the best IMO. By the way: it's Carl Perkins on the front cover with Jay and Clayton Perkins (guitar and bass) and W.S. Holland (drums). See also RCS for "rockabilly or not rockabilly ratings" of the songs.

1. Town Hall Party Gang - Wait For the Light To Shine
2. Everly Brothers - The Sun Keeps Shining

You know, my friend, the reason that this album became a rare treasure was the version of "Feel Like Going Home" by Charlie Rich that ends the record. It was not released until very recently, and it is one of the most soulful records ever made. Pete Guralnick described it as Rich's tribute to Richard Nixon. And it it. Thanks so much,

And exactly Track 24 "Feel Like Going Home" is corrupt :(
