[BCD 16937 AH]

Billy The Kid Emerson - Red Hot - The Sun Years plus ...
All the 1950s recordings from Vee-Jay, Chess and MAD Records - All the original Sun singles - All the original Vee-Jay singles - All the original Chess singles - The first MAD label single (2 tracks) - Every Sun title not originally issued - The Vee-Jay titles not originally issued - And all in stunning sound quality - And you get to see: A 44- page booklet by Martin Hawkins based on original interviews with Billy Emerson and Sam Phillips - A number of wonderful photographs from the Sun Sun Records producer Sam Phillips said,'Billy Emerson wrote such great songs. He was one of the very best.' People who've never heard of Billy Emerson have probably heard his best songs. Red Hot has been recorded by no less discerning disciples than Billy Lee Riley, Ronnie Hawkins, Bob Luman, Sam The Sham and Robert Gordon. Emerson also wrote When It Rains It Pours, best known through Elvis Presley's version. Then there's the iconic Every Woman I Know (Crazy ‘Bout Automobiles). His songs have been recorded by artists as diverse as Little Miss Cornshucks, Willie Mabon, Ry Cooder and Ann-Margaret. Emerson's own '50s recordings, made at a time when he had something seriously good and individualistic to contribute to the blues and to the development of R&B, are instantly recognisable. In this CD we have collected together all his recordings for Sun, Vee-Jay and Chess and added his 1960 recording for the MAD label. Billy Emerson said, 'At Sun, Sam Phillips was always wanting to hear something different, and back then I could just go away and think of something different to record overnight.' That was probably why Sun issued more records by Billy Emerson than any other blues or R&B singer, and why Vee-Jay and Chess recorded him right through the rock 'n' roll era.
