Description

Reissued by popular demand is the 'Radio Rockabillies' material recorded by Jerry Mercer and his band, the Rhythm and Blues Boys, in 1956 for a local radio show in Malden, Missouri. Jerry's band included a certain NARVEL FELTS who would go on to record at SUN and MERCURY before achieving stardom in the South in the 1960s and then international renown as a major country music entertainer in the 1970s. Tapes found at Jerry's house in 1986 were used on the original vinyl album in 1988 and the extended CD in 1997, both issued first time round by ROCKSTAR RECORDS in the UK. The late Bob Jones mastered the original tapes and did a wonderful job to preserve these 1956 recordings for posterity. Now in 2017, RWA (RICHARD WEIZE ARCHIVES) is proud to reissue the CD that has long been unavailable. This new presentation includes fresh artwork and updated biography. Narvel handles the vocals on a bunch of then current rock 'n' roll and rockabilly favourites including Woman Love, Go, Go, Go, Heartbreak Hotel, Mystery Train and Blue Suede Shoes. Jerry takes over for Jack And Jill Boogie, Seven Nights To Rock, Boogie Woogie Country Girl, Gone Gone Gone and Lawdy Miss Clawdy. Band members Leon Barnett and J.W. Grubbs get in on the act with Kansas City Blues and Corrine Corrina. So return with us now to those thrilling days of 1956. Narvel Felts and Jerry Mercer ? The Radio Rockabillies sing again!
