Gentleman Prefer Blondes
The first of two forthcoming Eddie Noack retrospectives, this 104-track set contains every ’50s single plus alternate takes, demos, rare tracks never before on CD and lots of fly-on-the-wall false starts and studio chatter. These are the early studio recordings (1948–61) that kick-started the legend of this Texas honky-tonker, who also became a hero to rockabilly lovers everywhere including Bob Dylan. His 1958 country hit Have Blues—Will Travel and the cover tune that first won him attention, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes, join Triflin’ Mama Blues; Unlucky Me; Tragic Love; Think of Her Now; Moonlight on the Water; My Steady Dream; The Price of Love; Can’t Play Hookey; Walk ’Em Off; Shotgun House; The Same Old Mistakes; Raindrops in the River; Too Hot to Handle; As Long As You Call; Don’t Worry ’Bout Me Baby, and more. A newly researched 73-page biography rounds out this overdue spotlight on the great Eddie Noack! Bear Family.
