These Early Rockabilly-Era Recordings By Country Star Johnny Dollar Were Lost For Over 40 Years Until Their Recent Discovery And Release On This Rare And Fascinating Disc.

The Album: Johnny's Raw Interpretations Of Jack Rhodes' Classics "Rockin' Bones" And "Action Packed" Later Influenced The Now-Famous Rockabilly Star Ronnie Dawson, Who Copied Their Arrangements Note-For-Note. Although Ronnie Definitely Made The Songs His Own, Johnny Dollar's Original Versions Stand Alone As Long-Lost Classics Of The "Cat Music" Genre With Influences That Include Early Elvis Presley, Warren Smith And Gene Vincent.

The Record Also Features Lead Guitarist Howard Reed, Who Later Joined Gene Vincents' Blue Caps As A Replacement For Johnny Meets, And Incredible Teenage Piano Pounder C.B. Oliver, Who Gives Jerry Lee A Run For His Money At The Keyboards. In Addition To These Amazing Studio Recordings, The Set Includes Two Live Performances Recorded At The Legendary Big "D" Jamboree In 1958 In Front Of A Screaming Female Audience.

This Disc Is The Second In The "Legends Of The Big "D" Jamboree" Series And Makes A Fine Addition To The Archives Of Classic 50s-Era Rockabilly At Its Best. Also Included Are Alternate Mixes, Rare Family Photos And A Biography Of The Artist.
