That'll Flat Git It 21 / Various
2008 release. Atlantic Records is one of the great labels in American popular music. From classic R&B singers like Joe Turner, LaVern Baker, and the Drifters to Soul stars like Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, and Solomon Burke, and Classic Rock artists like the Rolling Stones, Yes, Led Zeppelin, and many others, Atlantic has been at the forefront of popular music since it's inception in 1948. As an early sixtieth birthday present, we're reissuing 29 recordings that Atlantic probably forgot they ever made! It's the one side of the label's long story that has never been told: The attempt to score Rock hits during the late '50s that started with a failed attempt to sign Elvis. This collection includes the fabulous original version of a song that Elvis later covered, 'Judy', as well as the original version of a song that Buddy Holly later recorded, 'Rave On'. Additionally, it features incredibly rare early recordings by David Gates, founder of the '70s Soft Rock band, Bread, as well as Bill Haley's Comets, recording as the Kingsmen. 29 tracks. Bear Family.
