BILLY LEE RILEY
"MOJO ALBUMS, PLUS"

Both of Riley's rare and sought-after Mojo albums available now for the first time in 30 years. - The'Vintage' rock 'n' roll album features rockabilly legend Larry Donn whose red-hot rockin' piano helps Riley rip through ten rock 'n' roll classics in half an hour. Way to go! 'Southern Soul At The Brave-Falcon' serves up another 12 hypnotic tracks in a visceral, bluesy set of shuffling, rocking rhythms. You can practically smell the magnolia. Also included are the rare Mojo single as by Skip Wiley and a clutch of unissued tracks including a longer version of the Chuck Berry Medley. -- The late Billy Lee Riley was one of the titanic but unsung pioneers of rock 'n' roll. He was better looking than Carl Perkins, his multi-instrumental ability surpassed Elvis's, his confidence equalled Jerry Lee Lewis's. And he was important to Sun Records in ways other were not. Riley's musicians, co-opted as studio session-men, plotted the course of rock 'n 'roll as much as many a more celebrated band. - Like the household names, Riley had a life after Sun and this 29-track CD contains two diverse but equally versatile albums made some 14 years apart. 'Vintage', from 1980, is a solid, renascent set of immortal rock 'n 'roll classics inspired by the renewed European interesting rockabilly and Sun Records. Then there's 'Southern Soul At The Brave-Falcon' which features R&B standards, Top 40 tunes and Riley's own songs in a live nightclub recording which captures the best sounds of the era. It's sexy, blues 'n' boogie based soulful music and when Riley hollers 'Do the Temptation Walk' it's the mid-60s all over again. - As Bear Family always goes that extra, obsessional mile, we've included a longer undubbed version of the Chuck Berry Medley, several other previously unissued performances and a rare Mojo single issued under de pseudonym of Skip Wiley.
