Long lost classic albums
from an unheralded hero of early rock ‘n’ roll as recently raved about by Noel
Gallagher in MOJO magazine.
24 tracks filled with
primal rock ‘n’ roll swagger from his 1960 much sought after album "Lonely Boy
Blue” and his debut offering from 1958 "Conway Twitty Sings”.
Packed with attitude! Sentence
rolling angst with more than a nod to Elvis at his most forthright and law-breaking
Featuring Great versions of
Presley faves ‘Blue Moon’, ‘Heartbreak Hotel’ along with his very own debut hit
‘It’s Only Make Believe’.
Plus classic R’n’R
posturing on the effusive ‘I Vibrate’ and the teen anthem ‘Trouble In Mind’
along with some emotive anthems including ‘You’ll Never Walk Alone’ and a great
take on Ray Charles’ ‘Hallelujah I Love Her So’.
"Lonely Blue Boy was first released in 1960, and finds Twitty still with a strong foothold in rock'n'roll, sounding uncannily like Elvis on the title track, and galloping along to a Ricky Nelson shuffle on Just Because and Pretty Eyed Baby. County hues begin to seep in on My Adobe Hacienda but, for the most part, it's an earthily bluesy affair, bordering on the sleazy on Trouble In Mind". 3* (Terry Staunton, Record Collector August 2012)
