• • Lesser known but musically by no means less important names round off the project.
• • Extensive liner notes by Chicago music historian Bill Dahl and remastered recordings from the best possible sources provide additional listening pleasure – non-stop rocking! 

Lew Chudd’s Los Angeles-based Imperial Records had the roots music field covered like a blanket
during the ‘50s: country, rockabilly, R&B (especially of the New Orleans variety), and several more
sub-genres distinguished its catalog in great abundance. Bear Family’s ‘That’ll Flat Git It Vol. 45’ is
devoted to a deep dive into Imperial’s vast archives, digging up 36 gems by some of the label’s top
names. Three rockers by Imperial’s favorite teen idol Ricky Nelson are aboard, as are classics by The
Burnette Brothers, Merle Kilgore, Lew Williams, Laura Lee Perkins, Dennis Herrold, Jackie Walker,
and Bob Luman. But this series is known for its super-obscurities, so there are plenty of those on offer
by Tommy Lomonte, The Leen Teens, Jay Blue, Sonny Anderson, Slick Slavin, and The Catalinas,
just for starters. Freddy Fender in his formative years and New Orleans jump blues shouter Roy
Brown are here too, and there’s a flat-out slab of romping Crescent City R&B by the fiery Gloria Jean
Pitts. This set is a non-stop rocking delight!
