Product Notes

-Bear Family Records® presents the second compilation of rockabilly tunes from the catalogs of M-G-M Records and it's sub-labels Cub and Metro. -The better-known rockers are Buck Griffin, Marvin Rainwater and Andy Starr, while the less-known performers include Gary Walker, George McCormick, Ricky Scott, Rita Faye, Bob Riley, and Don Ruby, a.o.! -The album includes two country rockers each by Don Gibson and Arthur 'Guitar Boogie' Smith! -As always, we provide recordings in TOP sound quality! -The liner notes are written by Bill Dahl. -Extensive and richly illustrated booklet with biographical and discographical information. Dewey Phillips (1926 - 1968), a humorous Dee Jay from Memphis, who regularly introduced white and black musicians in his broadcasts since 1949, wrote Rock & Roll history when he played Elvis Presley's first single on the radio in July 1954. From his verbal signature 'That'll Flat Git It!', Bear Family Records® borrowed in 1992 the title of our long-running label-by-label rockabilly series featuring the record company's best rocking recordings! The fortieth issue is dedicated to the catalogs of M-G-M Records and it's two sub-labels, Cub and Metro - we first featured rockabilly and rock' n' roll on M-G-M before the turn of the millennium. With BCD 15789 'That'll Flat Git It! Vol. 7' there is no overlapping. M-G-M Records was founded in 1946 by film production company Metro Goldwyn Mayer as a record label to release soundtracks, but was open to a wide variety of musical genres from the beginning. M-G-M jumped into rockabilly when that genre of music literally exploded in the mid-50s! For our recent visit to M-G-M, we've chosen better-known rockers like Buck Griffin, Marvin Rainwater and Andy Starr alongside less popular performers like Gary Walker, George McCormick (part of the country duo George & Earl), Ricky Scott, Rita Faye, Bob Riley and Don Ruby, a.o
