Charlie Phillips - Sugartime (CD)


Bear Family 2011
bcd16840
 

72-page booklet, 35 tracks. Playing time approx. 86 minutes. -- His song 'Sugartime' is one of the most-covered and biggest selling songs of the 20th century. An untold slice of Tex-Mex musical history...Charlie was one of Buddy Holly's contemporaries. All of Charlie Phillips' originally issued songs to 1967 plus the best of his later songs and 9 previously unissued songs! Backing musicians include Buddy Holly, Jerry Allison, Glen Campbell, Al Casey and the cream of Nashville's session men. Many unpublished photos. -- With his 4-octave range, Charlie Phillips is one of the most soulful and accomplished singers to emerge from West Texas. His first professional session (with Buddy Holly on guitar) generated 'Sugartime' ... one of the most covered songs of the century. The follow-up, 'Be My Bride', made its CD debut on 'That'll Flat Git It,' Volume 9 (Bear Family, BCD 15971) and is the only track in this package to have had prior European release. That's how rare this stuff is! -- Bonus tracks We have them. There's the original previously unissued demos of 'Sugartime' (1956) and the rockabilly classic 'Faker' (1958). A studio master of 'You're My LSD' which needs to be heard to be believed. Plus a concert medley of 'Whole Lotta Shakin' / Johnny Be Goode / The Twist / Rock Around The Clock / Sugartime' backed by several members of the Texas Playboys shows a side of Charlie not heard in any of his other recordings. -- Charlie collaborated with John Ingman on a comprehensive biography for this set.
