This release in the seemingly never-ending 'That'll Flat... Git It!' CD-series on Bear Family Recordsr focuses for a second time on the rockabilly catalog of the renowned King label. -Another 31 classics from company founder Syd Nathan's unexpectedly abundant archive from the latter half of the 1950s. -Included are Moon Mullican, Charlie Feathers and Mac Curtis, among others, plus obscure names like Cecil McNabb, Jr., Bing Day, Joe Penny or Bill Beach a.m.o. -Bill Dahl has done extensive research on the history of King Records and the rockabilly releases and artists - extensive liner notes and session details in the 36 page illustrated booklet. -Carefully remastered from the best sources and nobly packaged in digipak. Bear Family Recordsr' second 'That'll Flat... Git It!' volume from the massive vaults of Cincinnati's King Records illustrates just how spectacularly bountiful Syd Nathan's rockabilly legacy was during the mid-to-late '50s. 31 classics from the bottomless King/Federal vaults range from acknowledged classics by Mac Curtis, Charlie Feathers, and Moon Mullican to beloved obscurities by Bill Beach, Joe Penny, Cecil McNabb, Jr., and Bing Day and gems from out-and-out unknowns Big Moe and The Panics and Al Henderson. Ray Starr's Donna Lou finds a sweet middle ground between rockabilly and R&B, and Booker Lee, Jr.'s Rockin' Blues threatens to veer off the rails altogether through sheer exuberance. Elvis-influenced Ronnie Speeks and His Elrods, Little Richard-style screamer Ronnie Molleen, and late-blooming Bobby Cash add to the excitement. Nathan built an empire at 1540 Brewster Avenue, situating everything from a recording studio to a pressing plant under one expansive roof - and his rockabilly roster was unequaled anywhere outside of Sun Records. In tandem with Volume 1 (BCD17669), this collection pays fitting tribute to King's amazing rockabilly and rock and roll contribution.
