DESCRIPTION

Vee-Tone Records are delighted to bring you four previously unreleased, mid-fifties radio session recordings by Justin Tubb.  These stunning recordings come presented on vinyl as they should be!  This must have deluxe 7” EP package, comes in yellow vinyl, with a full colour high gloss shrink wrapped sleeve, and is the essential addition to any Hillbilly or Rockabilly collection.  Justin was the eldest son, of Country Music Legend, Ernest Tubb.  Despite being hugely talented, he had a relatively short recording career, and never reached the superstar status of his father.  These recordings hail from his mid-fifties Decca Records period, where he recorded both Hillbilly and Rockabilly sides.  These recordings were made for ‘Country Style USA’ (circa 1956), a short 15 minute public service broadcast made for US Armed Forces recruitment purposes.  Our hard driving, rockin’ opener, ‘You Nearly Lose Your Mind’, written by his father, is a superb piece of Rockabilly / Hillbilly crossover (a studio version was released on Decca 9-29895, 1956).  It’s interesting to note, that when given the opportunity of US wide exposure, he chose to perform predominantly recordings by his peers, and didn’t opt for ‘safe’ Country standards.  Next up is a fine version of ‘It Takes A Lot O' Heart’, a beginners guide to modern romance (a studio version was released on Decca 9-30062, 1956).  Opening up side two, is the Marty Robbins track, ‘Lucky Lucky Someone Else’, a tale of lost love, and anguish… there’s a theme here… (a studio version was released on Decca 9-29895, 1956).  Closing off side two is a real beauty, George Jones’, ‘All I Want To Do’, a track Justin never even released as a studio recording!  He was certainly aiming at the new cash rich ‘teen market’, the very same ‘teen market’ the US Armed Forces were desperately keen to enlist.  The pressure, and expectations on Justin must have been immense, given his father’s ‘Elder Statesman’ status in Country Music.  Sit back and enjoy these recordings for what they are, perfect live studio sessions from a hugely talented young man forging out a career in music, a career that would see him gain success as one of Nashville’s stable of Country Music writers.  These recordings sound as fresh today, as they were in mid-fifties when first broadcast….. ENJOY!!!!
