'Pure', 'Down Home' and 'Raw' are three words that aptly describe the driving rhythms and no-holds-barred sounds of fiddle and steel packed into the 30 tracks from the Canadian country artist, Luke Simmons. Combining influences of Hank Williams, Jimmy Rodgers and the country and rockabilly greats of his day in the early 1950s, yes siree this is without doubt as pure, raw and down home as you can get!
Many of the tracks are on CD for the first time, previously just available on scarce 78s and heard only by the most ardent of collectors - now all beautifully remastered.
Turn back the pages of time and listen to the authentic vocals of this great country singer who was a key link in developing the '50s country style even in places as far-fetched as New Zealand and Australia. Yee Haw!
