1960s Rock & Roll from the Nashville Indies / Various [Import]
2010 collection. Nashville is known the world over as Music City and though it is mostly identified with Country music, it has always been a place where all types of music have been played and recorded. Buddy Holly, Gene Vincent, Little Richard and Elvis Presley all made some of their earliest recordings in Nashville. By the early '60's, Rock 'n' Roll was here to stay and labels big and small were beating the bushes to find talent. This collection focuses on some of Nashville's smallest independent labels and their most obscure releases. It is a footnote in the long history of Nashville as the Music City and a fascinating glimpse into the small 1960's labels. 22 tracks.
