Maybe Scotty McKay will never appear in the list of the ‘100 best musicians of all times’. As a pianist and guitarist he left only a few traces in the history of Rock ‘n’ Roll – even though he was a member of Gene Vincent’s Blue Caps for a while around 1957 and appeared on the ‘Ed Sullivan Show’ on November 17th 1957. He also sang background vocals and played piano and rhythm guitar on Baby Blue and can be heard on the LP album ‘Gene Vincent Rocks & The Blue Caps Roll’.
As a convincing genuine rocker and strong lead singer, however, Scotty McKay belongs to that group of authentic masters of the genre who deserved to make it big, but mostly made excellent recordings in the shadow of the big names and performed regularly.
We believe that Scotty McKay simply belongs in our unique ROCKS! series.
For the first comprehensive compilation, Bear Family has gathered all his rockers from the years 1959 to 1966. Recordings that were made for labels like Event, Swan, Lawn, Ace, Squire, Philips, Capri, Savannah Sound and Falcon. Many of these titles are hereby released on CD for the first time! In addition to his own rockers (and those under his birth name Max K. Lipscomb), McKay was a singer with Tommy & The Tom Toms between 1959 and 1962, but their rock recordings were initially not released as singles or on LP.
The accompanying book was written by our Chicago expert Bill Dahl. We here at Bear Family are absolutely sure: Scotty McKay’s rockers like Evenin’ Time’, Midnight Cryin’ Time, Baby Let’s Play House, Don’t Wait and many others will surely blow you away!
