FARON YOUNG : Snowball
Deluxe edition with raw paper
The rock´n´roll explosion of mid 50´s made to change a lot of things in the USA´s discography industry, and suddenly every record company began to search desperately his own Elvis Presley.
Big lables as Capitol Records even forced their own singers to step into the big beat, and that´s what happened with Faron Young. Faron´s rock´n´roll recordings where an accident forced by the circunstaces, but at least Faron was into the supposed age to fit on the new rhythm, and his friendship with Elvis Presley from his Louisiana Hayride days help him to feel more cofortable in that field thant others of his country & western colleages.
Anyway Faron was a country singer and as soon as the likes for rock´n´roll decreased at the end of the 50´s he came back deep into is old honky tonk sound.
But nonetheless the rock´n´roll days of Faron Yound gave us some fantastic songs, as always superb backed by the Nashvile´s A-Team and produced with a great sound quality, as usual on every recording from the Owen Bradley´s studio.
In this EP you´ll find four great songs, swinging from strong rockabilly sounds to pop and jazz flavoured tunes. You won´t find the Faron´s country roots on this tracks but anyway his brief rock´n´roll affaire is highly enjoyable!
