IN THE 1950s, MEMPHIS, TENNESSEE AND THE TRI-STATE AREA SAW THE RISE OF A POT- POURRI OF MUSIC FROM SUPERCHARGED R&B TO PLAINTIVE HILLBILLY, TO COTTON-PATCH BLUES. TO THE INTENSE EMOTION OF GOSPEL AND THE TOUGH SOUNDS OF ROCK’N’ROLL AND ROCKABILLY. SUN RECORDS BOSS SAM PHILLIPS WAS ONE OF THE FIRST TO REALIZE THAT SO MUCH TALENT NEEDED AN OUTLET AND DULY FOUNDED THE MEMPHIS RECORDING SERVICE. MANY OTHER LABELS WERE FORMED AFTER THIS BUT VERY FEW ATTAINED THE STATUS OF SUN RECORDS.

ONE OF THESES COMPANIES WAS VADEN RECORDS FORMED BY ARLEN VADEN AND HIS WIFE, JACKIE, OPERATING OUT OF TRUMANN, ARKANSAS. INITIALLY FORMED TO RELEASE THE WORK OF GOSPEL SINGERS THEY RELEASED A NUMBER OF 45s AND EPs UNDER THE NAME OF THE SOUTHERN GOSPEL SINGERS. IT WASN’T LONG BEFORE THE VADEN’S RECOGNISED THE IMPACT OF ROCK’N’ROLL AND ROCKABILLY AND BRANCHED OUT. THE RESULT OF THEIR EFFORTS ARE GATHERED TOGETHER ON THIS CD. SOME OF THE NAMES ARE FAMILIAR TO AFFICIONDOS OF ROCK’N’ROLL AND ROCKABILLY OTHERS ARE NOT. GREAT *****
