Here's a handy link to our facebook page, where the action will unfold ....
check it often or click like or do both.

Well, its just about that time so we thought we better grab a spare moment
to wish you all a very Merry Christmas & Happy New Year and also to thank
you all for your custom over this last year.
If you’re still looking for that special gift then i think maybe we’ve got
what need.... it’s the Texas Box!. A mammoth 10cd - 330 track Bear Family
quality boxset put together by Pascal at Lenox & Micha at B-Sharp Records,
gathering together the finest & rarest Texas Rockabilly, Rockers &
Country Boppers. There’s no lame B Sides, no tracks that have appeared on a
million other comp’s before, no poncey lavender pop nonsense, just tough,
stompin’ Killer Lone Star 45’s, many of which have never been comp’d before. On
top of that there is a beautiful 200 page full colour hard backed LP sized book
packed full of rare & unseen pictures, label shots plus info, price guides
etc. This is a very limited pressing and will never be repressed so now’s the
time as it’s selling fast and everybody seems to talking about it on a certain
social network. Here’s a little Youtube vid to give you an idea of what to
The box set sells for £160.00 in the shop or £175.00 if you need it mailed (it’s
heavy...it weighs 4.5kg!!!!!)
Before we toddle off i should let you know that the new Norton releases
have arrived. There’s Vol. 9 of the El Paso Rock series “Sand Surfin’”, The JFK
tribute “Tragic Songs From The Grassy Knoll”, on Grassy Green on the vinyl
version plus a new Sun –Ra volume and a new LP from La La Brooks. Continuing the
old Relic Lp series there’s The Golden Groups – The Best Of Norton Records Vol.s
1 & 2 which gathers together a bunch of Mad Mike fave Vocal Group
Rockers. In the 45’s department, there’s a seasonal helping from the New
Surfsiders plus a wild Vocal Group Rocker from the Deli-Cados, a raw 1964
Unissued Detroit Rocker by Jerry & the Del-Rays and a previously unissued
1967 Psyche/Garage 2 sider by the Purple Majesty produced by a 15 year old Joey
Also expected today are a couple of new Jazzman 45’s too.
Oh well that’ll do it for this year. Hope you all have a good ‘un and
thanks again for the custom.

25th November 2013
Its been a little while since our last update and what with X-Mas just round the corner we thought it was time for a heads up on some new goodies.
First off we have a few copies left of the always great Blues Images 2014 calendar & cd. Beautiful 12” lp sized calendar with original classic Blues artwork & pictures plus a 24 track cd with tunes from the likes of Henry Thomas, Furry Lewis, Charley Patton etc.
Just arrived is the New very limited Jukebox Jam Vol. 2 double Lp (or single Cd). Super swanky gatefold paste on sleeve packed full of goodies from Dave Bartholomew, Little Willie John, Young Jessie, Bill Emerson amongst others. Don’t be slow if you need the vinyl coz its limited and will sell out pretty quickly. While i’m on the footlong front, we’ve just got another limited edition (500 only) of Motown Rhythm & Blues 1959 to 62 on Vee Tone. Compiled by Mark Lamarr and featuring 16 rare & rockin’ Detroit dancers. Comes with a download card with a bunch of bonus download only tracks too.
Of course we’ve got new 45’s as you would expect. There’s 8 new R&B/Blues/Early Soul repros just recently landed. Here’s a handy list....
ATLANTIC 1004 – LaVERNE BAKER – SOUL ON FIRE/ HOW COULD YOU LEAVE A MAN LIKE THIS?
COBRA 5000 – OTIS RUSH – JUMP SISTER BESSIE / SIT DOWN BABY
EXCELLO 2013 - JERRY McCAIN – MY NEXT DOOR NEIGHBOR / TRYING TO PLEASE
FEATURE 3008 - LIGHTNIN’ SLIM – NEW ORLEANS BOUND/ MR. RAIN – WHO DAT?

FORTUNE 5041 – EDDIE KIRK – THE GRUNT / EVERY HOUR, EVERY MINUTE
Another new and very exciting arrival is a completely unknown, unheard, uncomp’d and unbelievable double whammy from Arthur Crudup. This comes from the only known/surviving ACA acetate of a session he cut for the Mississippi Champion label and its a stunner. If you love his RCA cuts like Shout Sister Shout etc then you’ll love this (“She’s My Baby”) too. This is also a limited edition pressing and comes complete with a nice period looking Crudup Champion promo postcard.
New from ACE/Big Beat are three LTD 60’s Garage Punk 45 RPM reissues. There’s Zakary Thaks – She’s Got You on J-Beck, Denise – Boy, What’ll You Do Then on Wee & lastly Lawson & 4 more – Smart Bird on Ardent. All great and looking swish in hard brown card stickered sleeves.
We’ve also got some restocks of the Bellfuries – Just Plain Lonesome on 12” vinyl plus a few copies of their tour 45 too.
Okay, this is a bit of a quickie news update but head over to the website and check our featured products page for the full story.
I’m sure we ’ll be back with at least one more update before the full festive frolics begin.
Till Then....... www.nohitrecords.net
11th September 2013
Just a quickie to let you know we've just found a bunch of older/deleted Rockabilly repro's languishing in our basement. Check out our featured products section on the website for a run down of our newly discovered goodies. They are all limited quantities so have a look as soon as you've got a mo'
Also while i'm here I better let let you know that we just received the brand spanking New LP /CD from Big Sandy - What A Dream It's Been. It's a celebration of 25 great years of BS & his Flyrites. The LP is pressed on Transparent clear vinyl & comes with a very modern download card.
There's is, of course the obligatory slew of R&B and Rockabilly repros that are constantly arriving so head over to our featured products for the full story on that too.
Till the next update....
30th July 2013
Well it’s been awhile since our last update and there’s been soooooo much new stuff that i can’t even attempt to start listing all the goodies that have arrived since then plus i doubt you’d be bothered to read it all. What i’ll do is give you a little run down of the very latest stuff that’s landed plus i might point out a few other things you might have missed.
First through the gate is three new “Exclusive” repros that arrived last week. First up is a long over due re-re issue of Bobby Roberts monstrous 1956 Rockabilly Double Whammy “Big Sandy” b/w She’s My Woman”. This is way more than just a rehash job, Both sides have been re-mastered with much, much better sound that the old 80’s repro – this is how it was meant to sound. It’s also reissued on, what is believed to be the first pressed Darker Blue Sky label with the band credited as the Jennings Brothers. On top of that it comes with a nice period style faux distressed picture sleeve showing the only known picture of Bobby. Jump to it because it’s selling fast and it’s a limited edition. Also new is a killer slab of early 60’s Euro Rocker by Clark Richard – Hot Rock Beat b/w Queen Of Love – HMV. This is crazy rare on original with a beat up G copy selling for over $600 on ebay recently. Hot Rock Beat was comp’d on a Desperate LP but the great flip has never been reissued before. Also new new to the repro world is Stan Gunn with his deadly Rocker “ Baby Sitter Boogie” flipped with Jack Rivers great “Call On Me”.
Also new in Rockabilly repro-land is Lee “ Red” Melson – Carmin Sue Rock – Ridgecrest which is a great Hick Rockabilly 2 sider that was originally issued as an EP but in this case has been cut down to the best two tracks with the sound benefitting from just one track per side. Jay Brown’s Hanky Panky b/w Rockin’ The Guitar which is a fine Rockin’ Floor Filling Instro 2 sider also on the instro front is The Rollettes Orchestra with Venus Rock on the Cinch label which is yet another tough Rocker. We’ve just received 2 new 45 in the French SUN reissue series, this time round is Dean Beard – Rock Around the Town b/w the Sun cut of Rakin & Scrapin’ and on the Blues side we’ve got Pat Hare with two fine unissued Blues Rockers, Bonus Pay... and High on the flip side. Both of these releases are a strict pressing of 300 copies and come in great period style pic sleeves.
Hog maw in France have got a bunch of new releases including a New volume of their Raw Meat series now as a 10” lp on Red Wax plus a reissue of volume Vol.1 now as a 10” with different sleeve and Red Wax too. Hog maw has also issued a Live 10” from Larry Donn of a previously unissued live show from the early 60’s recorded in Arkansas and the sound is pretty great too and it’s pressed on clear gold wax. Hog Maw have just released a new 45’s Bloodshot Bill, Willie & the Bop-A-Whiles and Larry Donn.
It’s been out a few weeks but if you haven’t picked up the great Double cd or single LP “Got Rockin’ On My Mind” comp then it comes highly recommended. It’s like somebody has compiled a double CD of our favourite Rockabilly tracks but with added bonus of (on the CD) previously unissued cuts of both sides of Jimmie Dale’s fantastic Starday Custom pressed 45 “ Darlin’” & “Baby Doll” and on the LP a previously unissued cut of Bobby Lollar doing Larry Donn’s “ Honey Bun” !!!!. Both lp and cd are packed with info a great unseen pics too.
Okay that’ll do it for this round up. Check the Featured products and New & Recent section on the website for the full low down

15th April 2013
Greetings Music Lovers,
This is mainly a heads up for Record Store Day this weekend (20th April) plus a little tip off on a few new 45’s too.
For RSD this year we are stocking titles from Ace/Omnivore & Jukebox Jam. Ace have two very limited vinyl only releases, the first is an EP from Memphis Rockabilly God Charlie Feathers. Recorded in late 1961 for Goldwax, this is the first appearance anywhere for a track called “The Side Wind”. “Nobody’s Darlin..” & “Love Never Treated Me Right” have never been released in this format before and although “Deep Elm..” has seen a 45 release it’s never been reissued from the original mater tapes. Very Nice Pic sleeve too.
Also from Ace courtesy of Omnivore Records is Big Star – Nothing Can Hurt Me. Which is going to be the true first pressing 2 LP 180 gram coloured Vinyl special pressing, sound track to an up coming Documentary by Magnolia pictures. All 2 tracks are previously Unissued versions of Big Star classics.
Lastly from Jukebox Jam is a 45rpm triple pack of Unissued SUN cuts from Doctor Ross. Hand numbered pressing of only 500 copies in a picture sleeve.
As are the rules for record store day, No titles can be pre ordered or reserved – first come first served and strictly one copy per person. No titles will be available on our website or for mail order on the day. If we have any stock left after the day then it will be listed on our website at a later date.
Just arrived in store & on our website are 7 brand spanking New SUN Blues repros. There’s two from Rufus Thomas, Two from Dr Ross, A double shot from James Cotton and one from Hot Shot Love. Great sound & fine looking labels.
We’ve also had restocks on lots of Blues and R&B repros so check the website as we should have most titles back in stock again.
Also at long last Joe South’s fantastic “I’m Snowed” has been reissued with the equally Killer (if not better) “Chills” on the flip. In the same batch is Don French’s “Little Blond Girl” which should fly out too.
Okay, that’s just few of the new bits that have arrived, for the full lowdown click on the featured products section of the website at www.nohitrecords.net
28th January 2013
A Belated Happy New Year Music Lovers
January is a notoriously quiet month for new releases after the Festive glut of Michael Buble & Cliff Richard ear poison but thankfully there’s a few new Repro’s, CD’s and bits & bobs that have just arrived to cheer us up during the most boring time of the year
Firstly is something pretty special, a completely unissued unheard version of “Hold Me Baby” by Starday Rockabilly God Sonny Fisher. This comes from the same session as the Alternate version of “Rockin’ Daddy” which is also the flip of this new reissue too. Another great new Repro that’s just arrived is a super rare on Original Hick Primitive Rockabilly 45 from Louisana Lannis on the obscure Snowcap label. Both sides are Fine Texas Rockabilly and feature some of the cream of the Goldstar/Starday house musicians.
New In from Ace is the follow up to their fantastic Boppin’ By The Bayou cd called, rather imaginatively “Boppin’ By The Bayou Again”. This is an equally strong volume with 13 unissued/Alternate sides including some real Killers like a stunning version of Jimmy C Newman’s “Carry On”by Rusty Kershaw and a primitive Rockabilly Bopper by Wiley Jeffers.
Also from Ace is a fantastic picture sleeve 4 track Sonics EP featuring vinyl debuts for the Wild Switchblade version of “The Witch” plus an unedited Full Length versions of “The Witch” and “Psycho” and rounded out with their Monstrous version of the Richard Berry Classic “Have love Will Travel.
Just before X-Mas we got in a few limited edition Turntable Slip Mats. We have Elvis Presley Sun record label for “That’s All Right”, The Sonics Etiquette – The Witch and also a smart No Hit Records / Sounds That Swing slip mat with our Website wolf logo. Perfect for this snowy winter weather, we’ve got some Limited Edition Wavy Gravy t-shirts in stock too, sizes Small to Extra Large..grab ‘em while we’ve got ‘em.
Expected very soon will be three new Rockabilly Repro’s (Bobby Rutledge –Go Slow Fatso b/w Southern Fried Chicken – Zipp, Curley Griffin – Gotta Play Fair b/w I’ve Seen It All- Atomic & The Night Rockers – Baby Let’s Play House b/w E String Boogie – Jan). These have been slightly delayed due to a pressing fault but should be available in a week or so, plus of course 6 new R&B/Blues repro’s too.
24th December 2012
Just before the shutters come rolling down for Christmas, we would like to Thank you all for your custom and support over this past year.
We will be open again on the 27th December with a short 11am till 4pm on New Years Eve and then back to our normal times from the 2nd Jan 2013
Have A Good 'un
26th November 2012
Welcome to a little round up of New Goodies at No Hit Lands.
With Christmas nipping at our heals (only a month to go!!!!) we’ve got a few stocking fillers for you.
Firstly is the new 2013 Blues Images Calendar from John Tefteller. The calendar is 12” lp size and features 12 months of original Classic 1920’s Artwork plus sample lyrics, brief bios and birth & death dates for many Blues legends. The calendar also comes with a 21 track cd (complete with cd cover ready to pop in a jewel case) of rare re mastered tunes by Charley Patton, Blind Lemon Jefferson, Memphis Minnie and many more.
We’ve also just got some restocks (the first lot went before i had time to put them on the website) of 5 great DVD’s from Jerry Chatabox. There was stunning performances from Big Sandy & the Bellfuries, The Caezars & the Rhythm Shakers, The Go Getters, Janis Martin and also the Hot Rod Hayride, Which features performances from Deke Dickerson, John Lewis Trio, Knocksville & the Slapbacks. All the DVD’s are professionally filmed and edited by the very talented Chris McGee and his band of merry men at Bop Flix films.
We’ve just got in 4 new 45’s & a couple of CDs from the lovely Rollin’ Records. New tunes abound from Keith Turner, The Fret-tones, Harp hootin’ extraordinaire Adam Burney, Guit Fiddlin’ extraordinaire Andy Wren. Also on the modern Rockabilly side there’s a single on Rockin' Shelby recordsfrom Mark Lee Allen. West Coast Man b/w Oil Fields Burning features the shy and retiring Jim Jeffries on Guitar and both sides get a big thumbs up from us. Also new from the Vic-Tone label in Sweden are a couple of 45’s from Pat McGinnis & The Clip Joint Cutups (Wild Fire Willie) plus a 10” sort of lp / EP from The Western Tone Flyers. These are the most authentic sounding recordings i think i’ve ever heard, especially the Pat McGinnis which sounds like an unissued Blakenship Bros acetate!.
Of course there’s been, probably a couple of batches of R&B/Blues/Early Soul repro 45’s since our last update so check our featured releases section for the full run down but i’ll thrown in a few i can remember like Jimmy Rogers, Little Junior Parker, Bobby Bland, Cheri Lynn, The Table Toppers, Butch Vaden, Big Jack Reynolds etc.
There’s also a few new Rockabilly repop’s too so check out Hender Saul, Jr Warren & Doug Clayton for some fine Backwoods Boppers.
As for CD’s, the biggest seller of the last few weeks has to be the long awaited Roller Coaster Cliff Richard CD. This expands greatly on their earlier “Let Me Tell You Baby It’s Called Rock’N’Roll” 10” lp sampler of live recordings from Saturday Club, underlining that once upon a time Cliff could Rock. I suppose It also underlines how Shit Cliff is now but we all knew that i guess. The cd is a beautifully packaged double discer with great picture & info packed booklet. Along with usual great ACE & Bear Family new goodies we’ve also just received three New Cactus cds. Blue Hen Hillbilly, House Of Cash-a-likes Vol.3 & High On The Hog Vol.8 are all definitely great and feature probably 85-90% un-reissued 45’s
That’ll probably be enough to be going on with for now but as always it’s a good idea to check website often as we list new goodies all the time. Click you way over to www.nohitrecords.net
and head for the featured items or new & recent section for the full lowdown.

16th July 2012
Well it’s been awhile but finally we’ve found a bit of time to do a little round up of new and new-ish goodies.
What with the Olympics just round the corner, there will be nothing on the telly except people prancing around in lycra and if you live in London, you won’t be able to leave the house as it’ll be totally gridlocked, so you might as well stay in, turn down the volume on your gogglebox and load up with some new tunes. Of course If you are inspired by the Games then you could always practise your Shot Put or Discus throwing with a pile of Sting of Phil Collins records. Anyway enough waffle, on with the news.
Well it’s no great surprise that there’s a bunch of new 45’s, so i’ll get things rolling with a run down of a bunch of new Garage Punk, Beat & Frat Rocker repros that have recently landed.

Just arrived last week is a long overdue Repro of Clyde Arnold’s mighty I’ve Got A Baby b/w Scrounge on the San Jose Bella label. A long time Rockabilly club floor filler and crazy rare on original. Also on the Rockabilly classic front is a new repro/reissue of Johnny Burnette & the Rock’N’Roll Trio with Sweet Love On My Mind b/w Rock Therapy on a nice powder blue Coral promo. Neither of theses sides saw the light of day as a 45 at the time and in fact Rock Therapy laid unissued till the early 70’s
You might have missed this one as I don’t think i’ve mentioned it before but there’s a New Wavy Gravy 45. This one is a twisted Country Double Whammy of the highest order featuring Eddie Noack with the murderous Death ballad “Psycho” backed up with Porter Wagoner’s ode to life in the looney bin “The Rubber Room”.
We just had 3 really nice new pic sleeve 45’s in too. Jimmy Haggett – Rock Me Baby b/w Rabbit Action & Junior Parker – Feelin Good b/w Feelin’ Bad both on SUN and both in lovely authentic looking picture sleeves. Another swanky pic sleeve 45 that has just arrived is a killer early 2 sider from Eddie Cochran featuring his ‘Stage’ Brother Hank singing the great Rockabilly Bopper “I’m Ready” backed up with a vocalising Eddie on a very early attempt at “Teenage Cutie”. Very, very small quantities on these pic sleeve 45’s so grab ‘em while we’ve got ‘em.
Evengelist is new label from Lewis Durham (of Kitty, Daisy & Lewis fame) it’s based here in good old Camden Town. The first three releases are available now and feature a single each from Pokey Lafarge, C.W Stoneking & Blind Boy Paxton. Other than the fantastically recorded music, what set this lot apart from the rest is that as well as them being available on a 45rpm (limited to 500 copies) they are also available as a 78rpm 10” too (only 300 of each on 78).
Okay to round things out i’ll mention a couple of new Cd’s that have just arrived from the Vee Tone label. First up is the long awaited Wild Streak vol.2. Compiled by Mark Lamarr, this stunning 2 discer features another 50 storming late 50’s/Early 60’s Rockers. Every track is a bonafide Killer so need need for the skip button. Nice 8 page full colour booklet with label shots and pics. Also from Vee Tone and compiled by Lamarr is Vol. 13 of the fine R&B Humdinger series. This is a single disc with 22 fantastic Rhythm & Blues/Black Rock’N’Roll stompers many for the first time in CD. Again an 8 page colour booklet with label shots and pics.
As it’s been soooooo long since the last update, you’d be wise to have a look through our featured products section and also our recently cleared out and more manageable New & Recent section for the fullest lowdown.

Phew! okay that’s the 45 round up but i’ve bound to have forgotten a few so click your way over to our website for sound samples and more info on the above goodies.
There’s not really any Lp’s to mention ‘cept that we’ve got some stock of the vinyl version of the mighty JD McPHERSON lp. This is the last lot on Jimmy Sutton’s Hi-Style label as JD has been signed to Rounder Records in the States & Decca in the U.K. & Europe and we’re not sure if it’ll see a Vinyl release. So what i’m saying is grab it while you can.
Okay a few cds to round out the round up.
From Vee Tone records is the first in a new series of wild late 50’s/Early 60’s Rock’N’Roll /Rockers comps called “Wild Streak”. Compiled by our old mate Radio DJ Mark Lamarr, it’s a double discer with a nice booklet with label shots and rare pics of 50 truly killer tunes without even a hint of a duff track. Also from Vee Tone and also compiled by Mark is R&B Humdingers Vol.11. Vee Tone have picked up the Humdinger series and put Lamarr to work to dig another fantastic 22 tunes and again not a duff dittie in sight and again a nice 8 page booklet with label shots and pics.
New from EL TORO are a couple more in their “....and Friends” Rockabilly series. There’s Ray Harris and a gathering of 33 Mississippi Rockabillies & Rockers and Rocket Morgan with 33 Louisiana Rockers. All great tunes and sleeve notes from Dave Penny.
Kind of in the Lesley Rock & Roll Party style is The Radio Records Story which features 34 mainly great tracks from Fabor Robinson’s Cali based imprint. Also in the same style is the Freedom Records Story which gathers up 32 tracks from the Liberty label subsidiary.
Okay that’s gonna do it for this go round. Check the website (www.nohitrecords.net
) for even more new goodies including new titles from Bear Family
Coming up very soon. NEW 45’s - Al Runyon – Starday, F.D. Johnson – Jan, Clyde Arnold – Bella, Alton Guyon – Arkansas, 2 x Glenn Barber – Starday, Eddie Noack/Porter Wagoner – Wavy Gravy. New 3 disc Starday-Dixie Rockabilly CD from Fantastic Voyage. Tittyshaker-A-Go-Go LP and loads more.
Have yerself a great Easter .

Yep, i know we said that the update from last week was our last of the year but New stuff from Norton, Ace & Wild have just arrived so we thought you might like to know.
Included in the batch is a bunch of new festive 45’s . First up is an Yule tide Garagey Rockabilly stomper from Luis & the Wildfires “Who Likes Christmas Anyway?”, a menacing little dittie without a hint of Sleigh bells or Christmas cheer. The same goes for the Knights Of The New Crusade “(Christmas At) Montsegur “ which is a Garage stomper full of gloom to counteract the Festive Syrup .Sun Ra presents the Orientals covers both Holiday bases with “It’s Christmas Time” & “Happy New Year To You” .Both sides are Festive Lo-Fi Doo Wopers and polar opposite’s of the Wild Fires & Knights 45’s with lots of cheer & sleigh bells. Also in from Norton are 4 new Lps. Battle Of Rat Fink Hill is a great collection of Primitive Early 60’s Pittsburgh Instro’s in a Link style. Del Shannon “Move It On Over” is a first time gathering of his Early/Mid 60’s Amy sides and includes a stunning unreleased Link Wray style Instrumental that, alone makes this an essential purchase!!!. After decades in the recording wilderness Dave “Baby” Cortez returns in a blaze of Organ Instro Work Out glory with a fine new foot long which features Lonnie Youngblood on Sax. The Figures Of Light also return with a great New Snotty No-Fi Lp “Drop Dead”.

Festive Greets from your No Hit Friends,
This was going to be a long round up of new goodies but things are busy, busy here so you’ll have to check our Featured Products and new & recent section for the full low down.
For this little update we’ll just point out a handful of the new goodies.
Literally just arrived are two new exciting repro’s. The first is a long, long overdue repop of the Jungle Exotica classic by Ganimian – Come With Me To The Casbah backed up with the crazy Oriental goof Daddy Lolo. The other isn’t strictly a repro as it was never released at the time, in fact this is it’s first time on Vinyl for this newly discovered Acetate. “Cotton Pickin’ Chicken “ by Clyde Stacy is killer from the same session as the fantastic Hoy Hoy and has got the lot! 3 Guitar Breaks, Screams, Slappin’ Bass. The flip is also unissued and a great Eddie Cochran type Teen Rocker.
Also new in is another great 45 from Blakey. “Long Stringy Baby” is a killer British 60’s Rocker by Jimmy Crawford and the flip is another fine version of “Chills & Fever” by Dickie Loader.
Of course there’s a new batch of R&B, Early Soul & Blues 45’s
Roy Gaines – Skippy Is A Sissy b/w Bob Callaway – Native – RCA Victor
The Ideas – Go Get A Wig b/w Cathys Clown – St Lawrence

New in from Rollin’ Records is the new and swanky Dollar Bill 10” lp. While stocks last we’ve got some copies on Coloured vinyl and a bonus poster too! it’s also available on Cd but not coloured vinyl of course and no poster either. There’s also a new 45 from Slim Slip & the Sliders on Rollin too. While i’m on about Modern Rockabilly, we’ve just got in a few copies of a great new Hick Rockabilly 45 from a new band Pat McGinnis & the 3 Stars on a new label Turkish (which is from Italy...go figure). It’s one of the best new modern Rockabilly 45’s we’ve heard for awhile and at least worth a listen to via the handy sound sample up on our site.
There’s new goodies from Bear Family inc George Jones, Wynn Stewart & Tommy Collins additions to the Shake This Shack series. plus Chuck Berry & Slim Harpo in the Rocks series.
As i said this is a quickie so you’ll have to find out about the rest of the goodies by clicking your way to www.nohitrecords.net

There’s two new batches of repro’s from Holland. These are a mix of Rockabilly, Hick Boppers & Blues/R&B and all are impossibly rare to find on original pressings....
Morry Williams – Long Foot Jene b/w Time Runs Out – Luck 45 (Great Vocal Group R&B with a hot Guitar Break)
Art Young – Little Tot b/w I Still Miss Someone- Eagle 45 (Slap Bass Canadian Rockabilly bopper)

Tippo Lite’s All Stars – Jumping This Morning b/w Dark Skin Woman Blues- Back Alley 45 (Wild Memphis R&B Shouter)
Johnny Burnette Trio – Please Don’t Leave Me b/w All By Myself – Coral 45
A long time Rockabilly dance floor fave from Johnny Burnette finally see’s an outing on 45. This killer never saw the light of day at the time but did get reissued as a 45 in the early 80’s on one of them dodgy looking Revival 45’s. This issue is a nice Powder Blue Coral promo mock up benefiting from having the killer “All By Myself” on the flip.
There’s a couple of great New EP’s from El Toro in Spain to complement a new series of Cd volumes (more of that in a bit).
Ric Cartey & Friends – Georgia Rockers EP features Ric’s Ooh Eee & Scratching On My Screen plus John Worthan – Evalina Malony, Glenn Barber – Atom Bomb. I really can’t confirm if Glenn Barber was friends with Ric but his Atom Bomb is from Texas and not Georgia. As for John Worthan, well truth be known he never had a good word to say about Mr Cartey . All Killer Tracks and a Nice pic sleeve too. Werly Fairburn – All By Myself EP – features 5 live tracks from Louisiana Hayride plus a stunning raucous & essential version of “All By Myself” from the Big D Jamboree in Texas (which isn’t available on the accompanying CD). Nice pic sleeve & blue marble wax and to get all the DJ’s moaning, it plays at 33 1/3 rpm.
To round out the 45 heads up there’s a handful of British Rock’N’Roll / Beat 45’s on the notorious Blakey label....
Johnny Quantrell – Til The Following Night b/w Bill Kimber- When You Gonna Say – Blakey 45 (Wild, Wild previously unissued version of the Sutch classic)
Danny Rivers – I Got b/w Cherry Wainer – Money – Blakey 45 (Great Brit Rocker)
Dickie Pride – Slippin’ ‘N’ Slidin’ – Columbia 45 (Classic from the Shiek of Shake)
Okay enough of the 45’s for now, let’s move on to some CD’s....
As we mentioned El Toro have a new series “....& Friends” Cd’s . The first is Ric Cartey & Friends – Georgia Rockers which is a great comp of Fine Rockabilly from the Peach State. Disregarding Ric’s sweet Teen Ballad “Young Love”, the other 33 tracks are essential Killers. Further Volumes from Ray Harris & Rocket Morgan are promised. Also from El Toro is Werly Fairburn – My Hearts On Fire. 30 tracks from 1953 thru 1959 from Trumpet, Capitol, Columbia, Savoy & Milestone plus 5 great live tracks too.
The Profile Records Story is an excellent 20 tracker bargain cd featuring Blues & Rock’N’Roll goodies from Mickey Hawks, Junior Wells, The Nobelmen etc on the Chi-Town label.
New in from Rollin’ Records is “45’s Are Go!” a 24 tracker gathering up the first 20 45’s from the London based label. Featuring Rockabilly, Instrumental & Blues Stomps from the likes of the Excellos, Hi-Voltage, Dollar Bill etc plus 4 bonus tracks and a nice booklet.
Just in from ACE records is Rock Your Baby – 24 Red Hot Rompers for Children Of All Ages. Compiled by the lovely Mark Lamarr, it’s an eclectic and brilliant mix of nonsense tunes about Monkeys, Chickens, Mummy’s and more. Also from Ace is a collection of 60’s Instrumental, Surf, Eleki & Tsugaru Rock from Japan’s Answer to Link, Dick & the Ventures Takeshi Terauchi (also available as a 12” lp).
Also new in from Secret is a great package, Ike Turner – Jack Rabbit Blues which comprises of a 10” repro of the super Rare Tune Town 78 by Ike & Tina Turner (don’t worry it plays at 45rpm) housed in a nice full colour 10” pic sleeve with a 31 track cd of Ike goodies from 1958 to 60
We just got in and promptly ran out of the New swanky 10” Dollar Bill Lp (don’t worry it’ll back in soon)on Rollin Records.
This will probably do us for now, except to mention that by the end of this week we should have 9 new R&B/Blues repros (not sure what they are yet) plus A brand spanking New repro of the Renegades wild version of Justine on Challenge.
Coming very soon a repro of Ganimian’s Jungle Exotica classic “ Come With Me To The Casbah” and a Killer 45 of an unissued Clyde Stacy acetate recording “Cotton Pickin’ Chicken” from the same session as Hoy Hoy with guitar breaks, Slappin’ Bass and screams a plenty!!!!. And there’s New Bear Family & Buffalo Bop cds too...phew!
If you’re thinking of a gift for that special person for Christmas but really can’t be bothered trawling around the interweb or god forbid your local shopping mall, why not grab one of our lovely Gift Vouchers (available from the merchandise section on the website) and while you’re there you might as well pick up a No H
