VA: The PLANTATION Records Story l968-l981.(2 disc 50 tks)


VARIOUS ARTISTS/The PLANTATION Records Story l968-l981. 2013 re-issue. It's unlikely that few country as well as pop fans won't remember the name JEANNIE C. RILEY and her country/pop hit HARPER VALLEY P.T.A. from January l968 which is included in this issue. While this is one of the more notables in the release, as well as several more RILEY recordings there are many others sharing the spotlight including LITTLE DAVID WILKINS, SLEEPY LaBEEF...JOHN WESLEY RYLES...REX ALLEN, JR...WEBB PIERCE...JAMES O'GWYNN....CHARLIE WALKER...JIMMY C. NEWMAN...HANK LOCKLIN...ROY DRUSKEY & PATTI PAGE, RITA REMINGTON, RUSTY ADAMS, GORDON TERRY plus many, many more in this 50 track 2 CD set. It will be remembered by most that PLANTATION Records was the brainchild of the late SHELBY SINGLETON. This is definitely one for the traditional country music fans and collectors. RECOMMENDED.

(ADDITIONAL INFO): Plantation Records was launched in 1968 by Shelby Singleton, the entrepreneurial former head of Mercury and Smash Records, and a celebrated record industry maverick. Essentially a dedicated Country label, with a strong emphasis on novelty and idiosyncratic recordings, Plantation is remembered primarily for its biggest hit, Jeannie C. Riley's multi-million selling 'Harper Valley P.T.A.', which topped both the U.S. Pop and Country charts. The label registered a further three dozen or so chart entries, by artists like David Wilkins, Dee Mullins, Linda Martell, Sleepy LaBeef, John Wesley Ryles, Rita Remington, Webb Pierce, Bobby Hood and Patti Page, whilst non-charting artists included Ray Pillow, Rex Allen Jr, Jimmie Dale & The Flatlanders, Lois Ann Struck, Hank Locklin, Gordon Terry, Jimmy C. Newman, Barbara Eden, Roy Drusky and Leroy Van Dyke. These fifty tracks present the very best of Plantation's singles output, including 23 US Country hits. The set features the label's four million-sellers: Jeannie C. Riley's sassy 'Harper Valley P.T.A.', Harlow Wilcox's guitar instro 'Groovy Grubworm', C-Company featuring Terry Nelson's controversial 'Battle Hymn Of Lt. Calley' and Rod Hart's bizarre gay truckers' anthem 'C.B. Savage'. Very little of this material has previously been reissued, in any format, and many of these sides make their CD debuts on this set.
