Part Records are delighted to re-issue 'Rollin' Rock Records' one and only hip swinging dynamo Johnny Legend, internationally known as, the 'Rockabilly Rasputin' and we are 
proud to make available his back catalog.

Johnny Legend, how can you categorize him, how can you describe him? One thing is for certain Johnny Legend is a living American 'legend'! For sure Johnny Legend is a rockabilly musician
film producer, actor and wrestling manager. In 1995 Johnny Legend co-founded the, 'Incredibly Strange Wrestling' show in California, which combined wrestling and live music shows. 
His versatility is gained from more than 50 years in the limelight and living in many various subcultures. 

Johnny Legend has produced many 'B'-movies, most notably 'Teenage Cruisers' the first porno Rock'n'Roll movie, the sound-track is available on Part Records (PART-CD 653.002). 
Johnny Legend has also infiltrated many major Hollywood movies. These movies featured many notable actors including; Jim Carrey, Danny DeVito and Courtney Love. His Curriculum Vita 
is additionally embellished from working association with artists such as 'Quentin Tarantino', 'Andy Kaufman', 'Robin Williams', 'Freddie Blassie', 'Betty Page' and 'Gene Vincent'.

Looking at the musical career of Johnny Legend; we can say he was ahead of his time, for Johnny Legend favored the use of the Double bass when recording, the instrument of choice 
in the early 1970s was usually the bass guitar. From this angle his recordings can be termed neo-Rockabilly, and Johnny can be also be termed a pioneer of the genre! 
For this release we are proud to make available 29 songs from his 'Rollin' Rock' days, all recorded in the legendary studio of Rockin' Ronnie Weiser.
