Highway Diner / Blue Eyed Blues - Lacy J. Dalton

Highway Diner / Blue Eyed Blues
•    Lacy J. Dalton is one of the most under-rated singers in country music.  With a voice closer to Bonnie Raitt than any other country vocalist, Lacy could be described as the female version of Waylon Jennings.

•    June 1986’s "Highway Diner” a No. 32 country chart entry contained a successful single in ‘Working Class Man’ which was belatedly followed up at the year’s end by ‘This Ol’ Town’.  These made Numbers 16 and 33 respectively.

•    Eleven months later came ‘Blue-Eyed Blues’, a ‘half and half’ affair matching new recordings with career highlights.  She teamed with Bobby Bare for ‘It’s A Dirty Job’, a country Top 40 hit in 1983 never previously included on one of her albums, and the legendary George Jones for ‘That’s Good – That’s Bad’.  She then went bluegrass with Earl Scruggs for the new ‘Love Gone Cold’ and finally with David Allan Coe on Bob Dylan’s ‘Gotta Serve Somebody’.

•    Amazingly, Lacy only won one major award (Academy of Country Music’s Top New Female Vocalist in 1980) but awards mean nothing as those with ears will know.  Here is one of the greatest, smoky-voiced honky tonk singers of all time.

•    Both albums appear on CD for the first time.

NB: This title is released July 28 and will not be dispatched before this date.

Northern Soul Legend
This CD features Herbert's recordings for Spar, Poncello and Ref-O- Ree records, as well as a handful of previously unreleased recordings produced by Fred James in the 1990s. Northern Soul fans truly covet and laud Herbert Hunter recordings and several of his 45s go for hundreds of dollars on the collectors market. Many of these were recorded with a group that would come to be known as the AREA CODE 615 band. These are the guys that played on Bob Dylan, Linda Ronstadt, Neil Young and Barefoot Jerry records, as well as many of Nashville's R&B hits at the time.Herbert even performed with AREA CODE 615 when they appeared at the Fillmore Ballroom in the late 1960s. Several sides also feature the legendary Johnny Jones and the Imperial Seven, Nashville's premier R&B band during the 1960s. The unreleased 1990s recordings feature members of The Roadrunners, The Amazing Rhythm Aces and Freddie & The Screamers.Herbert Hunter made his recording debut in 1961 on the Spar label with a cover of "Dr. Feelgood" that outsold the original. It was the Spar label's very first release and it put Herbert in good stead with the company and with Ted Jarrett, who would go on to produce every record that Herbert released for the next four decades. Herbert recorded prolifically for Spar and its subsidiaries Giant, Kenilworth, Caravelle and Hit. He recorded under his own name and as Leroy Jones, Marty & The Merits, Johnny Keaton and several other pseudonyms so as not to flood the market with Herbert Hunter records.In 1962 Ted Jarrett started his own label, Poncello Records, and recorded H erbert for that imprint as well. Poncello was short lived though and Herbert continued to record for the Spar group. In 1968 Ted started the Ref-O-Ree label and recorded two sides by Herbert that were never released at the time. He then recorded for Ted's T- Jaye label in the 1980s and 1990s. Our Price: £5.00

The Rockin’ Spar Masters
These records were recorded with the Nashville "A Team" of the 1960s and many of the ballads feature lush orchestral arrangements. These musicians played on the recordings of Elvis Presley, Roy Orbison, The Everly Brothers and nearly every Pop hit that came out of Nashville in the early to mid 1960s. Several of these tracks are seeing their first digital release. All were produced by Ted Jarrett between 1961 and 1965.Herbert Hunter's name will forever be linked to legendary song-writer and record producer Ted Jarrett. Ted discovered Herbert in the late 1950s and soon learned that the young singer was a gifted mimic. Ted's greatest discovery, Gene Allison had had several big hits ( You can Make It If You Try, Have Faith, etc.) but was becoming increasingly more erratic and had a serious drinking problem that caused him to miss shows. Ted sent Herbert out as valet and driver for Gene, but it was understood that Herbert was to stand in for Gene if the star was unable to perform. No one was ever the wiser. Herbert made his recording debut in 1961 on the Spar label with a cover of Dr.Feelgood that outsold the original. It was the Spar label's very first release and it put Herbert in good stead with the company and with Ted, who would go on to produce every record that Herbert released for the next four decades. Herbert recorded prolifically for Spar and its subsidiaries Giant, Kenilworth, Caravelle and Hit.Herbert's gift for mimicry was put to good use and he recorded under a host of pseudonyms like Leroy Jones, Marty & the Merits, Johnny Keaton, Bob Johnson, The Belles and many others.
