DENNIS HERROLD – THE MYSTERY OF… – THE COMPLETE IMPERIAL RECORDINGS – BEAR FAMILY 10″ LP /CD

• Dennis Herrold – short-lived comet in rockabilly heaven!
• The mystery of Dennis Herrold is finally solved with this release!
• The 10inch LP contains the five tracks Dennis Herrold recorded for Imperial, including an alternative version of Hip Hip Baby and the previously completely unreleased Don’t Push Away as well as Make With The Lovin’ (the released single was faded out) in full length.
• For the first time on vinyl there is the unreleased track Boppin’ In The Dark, written by Dub Dickerson, who recorded the song at that time.
• All tracks of the LP plus bonus material are also available on the enclosed CD!
• Extensive liner notes were written by rock ‘n’ roll expert and music journalist Alex Petrauskas, who did meticulous research with Nico Feuerbach and Mark Lee Allen to trace and conclusively illustrate the biography of Dennis Herrold.
Dennis Herrold, one of the great unknowns of Rockabilly history! Until now, hardly anything was known about his life and career as a musician. This will change radically with the release of his Imperial recordings from 1957 as part of this vinyl/CD combination on Bear Family!
Together with the music journalist Alex Petrauskas, Mark Lee Allen and Nico Feuerbach did thorough field research and Mark Lee Allen established contact with the Herrold family. After several interviews with family members, they were able to draw the most detailed picture of Dennis Herrold’s life so far.
The short-lived comet in the sky of Rockabilly was born in Virgina in 1927 and died in New Mexico at the age of 74. In late 1957, at the time of his only session for Imperial Records, Herrold lived with his wife Erma Lee in Dallas, Texas.
Bear Family released Dennis Herrold’s You Arouse My Curiosity on the 12th release in the ‘That’ll Flat Git It!’ series in 1997. More than 20 years later, the rest of the 8 numbers he recorded for Imperial followed.
The accompanying CD also contains several bonus tracks. With the completely newly researched liner notes, previously unknown details and facts from Herrolds life are made available to a Rock ‘n’ Roll public for the first time! And you can see the first confirmed photos of Dennis Herrold …!
