As the first major label based on the West Coast when it opened its doors in 1942, Capitol Records was knee-deep in country and rockabilly throughout its early heyday. Capitol's rockabilly legacy is amply illustrated on this exciting collection, which takes in the label's best-known rockers (Wanda Jackson, Gene Vincent, Tommy Sands, Jack Scott) as well as the no-hit wonders that makes this series so revelatory. Future country stars Jerry Reed, Roy Clark, Bob Luman, Darrell McCall, and Del Reeves, veteran C&W luminaries Skeets McDonald, Sonny James, Rose Maddox, Cliffie Stone, and Hank Thompson, and former Bill Haley bandsmen The Jodimars and Nashville's favorite backing vocalists The Jordanaires are all here rocking. So are Nick Greene, Kenny Loran, Johnny Fallin, Bobby Louis, Ronnie and Roy, and Gary Von Ilg, who all certainly deserved a higher profile than their mere handful of rare Capitol 45s received. Since Capitol maintained a sizable presence in both Los Angeles and Nashville under Ken Nelson's A&R supervision, both of those recording centers are prominent throughout this jam-packed disc. To quote Ray Stanley's raucous track on this disc, Let's Get Acquainted with Capitol's spectacular rockabilly history!
