CD: VRCD16 (EAN CODE:7640111767374)
First I have to say that I've received those tapes something like a year ago...I never heard of this guy before either saw and heard his recordings so I don't know if this is real old stuff or only a big Rock'n'Roll swindle.. Decide by yourself...
On this record there are his 4 singles he put out on Q records in New Mexico 1958-63, they are pure Rock'n'Roll and some ballads too... On the 60's recordings he even has a Farfisa Organ, then you hear super cool raw live recordings from New Orleans with a screaming loud crowd and chicks go berserk, you also have some radio interviews when he played in Mexico that days and some outtakes and demonstration records... The sound on the tapes were really bad but our mastering guy did a great job and we can stand behind this record for a fantastic wild 50's sound... Jerry J. Nixon died end of 1999 and here his first!!! full length album, full of 50's Rock'n'Roll! He was a fantastic song writer and a one of the greatest unknown heroes of Rock'n'Roll....
Jerry j nixon notes:
Born in the UK, then moved to the USA in the mid 50's and recorded several non classic Rock'n'Roll platters for Q records in new Mexico, toured around the USA, and never made it up to Europe again, stopped playing music and died as a broken man in 1999.
If you like 50's Rock'n'Roll and Rockabilly then this you have to get this record!!! 14 Rock'n'Roll songs, wild Rockabilly and some Ballads too, from one of the most forgotten Rock'n'Roll heroes from the 50's... roll out the red carped for Mr. Jerry J Nixon!!!
