Twanging Tuesday # 57


As another godfather of Rockabilly should be named Charlie Feathers. Although he had no really chart-breaking hit singles he made a lot of classic tracks that should not be forgotten. As a Mississippi born child of a farmer he moved to Memphis to sign finally SUN-label. I'm very close to the way he plays this kind of music and this will be not the last one in this series.

Charlie Feathers - Jungle Fever

And I found this a video to his song 'One More Time' not sure if it is really old or just made in a retro style:

Man I love Charlie Feathers. He doesn't get as much love as some around here. He was hot and his connection to Junior Kimbrough put him in a unique position.

Release Me is one of my favorite songs.

Brilliant brilliant song by Charlie Feathers, Walter. And Charlie Feathers' real name was indeed Charles Feathers.
