Bill Yates - Blues Like Midnight - Sun Years - Bear Family cd
[Bill Yates 4]

Bill Yates - Blues Like Midnight - Sun Years - Bear Family cd

Contains all the singles made by Bill Yates in Memphis at the turn of the 1960's and an astonishing collection of unknown and unissued sides! Includes the three renowned Sun singles by one of the very best, bluesy and soulful, white vocalists ever to appear on that label together with 12(!) unissued tracks! Plus the three very rare singles on IST and Pixie Records! In addition, there are seven unissued sides made for the Home Of The Blues label! In a 48- page booklet, Martin Hawkins brings together the untold story of Bill Yates and his music! Rare photographs!

Bill Yates had a background in gospel music and was an exceptional vocalist and a good pianist. During his time in Memphis, he worked on the edge between the emerging R&B/soul sound of the city and the late night blues and ballads of the day. His story is told here for the first time. Apart from his three renowned Sun singles, this music is incredibly rare and a welcome addition to the picture of Memphis music at the turn of the '60s.

Bill Yates worked a lot with the Billy Adams band, and there is a companion CD (BCD 17116) containing Billy Adams' part in the story.

Note: There are other artists named Bill Yates in the rock & roll history books, principally a bluegrass player, but in Memphis music there was only one Bill Yates
