Album artwork for Bayou Rockabilly Cats by Various

Bayou Rockabilly Cats explores the unvarnished recordings of the early era just as they sounded on the day they were recorded. Included is Hopeless Homer's great New Way Rockin' which has never been reissued on any LP or CD (we even learn his true identity!) and early boppers by the blue collar hillbilly bands of Bill & Carroll and Red Le Blanc. Pianist Bee Arnold's ground-breaking white R&B featuring Spider's dangerously over-amplified guitar and the rare and frantic 78 take of Ray Vict's Bop, Stop, Rock are also included along with much more. Most of us will never have heard the sensational stomping Jambalaya Boogie by Eddie Shuler's Reveliers from an intensely rare black label Goldband that has only been recently discovered. It does seem pretty amazing when one considers that the master version of Al Ferrier's No, No Baby - a song surely known to any lover of 50s rockabilly and rock'n'roll - has only actually been heard by a very few people. The chugging, swampy rhythm of this gem has simply never come through before while My Baby Done Gone Away is from a completely different session and showcases the greatest guitar break that brother Brian Ferrier ever played. Ace's engineers restore all of these original versions to pristine sound.
