Danny Gatton Featured on these Vinyl LPs Excellent!




This a post of a couple of great albums that the late great Danny Gatton played on.
These are from my vinyl collection and ripped by me.

Leslee "Bird" Anderson "Running Wild" (1988, Renegade Records, RR-104) Danny plays on most if not all the cuts. Danny considered the title track his best recorded work ever. He lays down 11 tracks of Les Paul style guitars. He also plays bass, steel and banjo on this record.

Johnny Seaton, "Uptown" (Renegade Records, RR101) Danny plays on all but two cuts for this rockabilly revivalist.

Johnny Seaton "Reaction" (1986, Rounder Records 9004) As part of Rounder's New American Series, Danny and Johnny laid down 11 great tracks proving that rockabilly was not dead, but it was also not confined to a nostalgia act. The recording and mix quality is beautiful, Danny can be heard well and plays great. Danny did the arrangements as well. Johnny and Danny should have made more records like this. Can't say enough about these records. Highly Recommended!!!!

If you are any kind of fan of Danny Gatton or kick ass Rockabilly, download these ultra rare LP's!

WMA 9.1 @96kps and 128kps

Thanks very much for this and the RT show from a few weeks ago. A question: do you have any idea why these shows will not go into my itunes? thx and keep up the good work.

Looked up the artists on the Web and found that Johnny is working at an Elvis show in Vegas. Thanks agains for posting this. Gatton playing is very good and services the songs without overpowering the singers. The Steaton disc is the better of the two although it sounds like it was recorded at different times.

I've got 2 copies of the Leslee Bird LP, one sealed. Also have numerous copies of Reaction, and I think still a sealed one of those too, but can't find a copy of Uptown...

anyone have a line on one, maybe consider a trade of some sort?

I've done 24-bit 96kHZ vinyl rips of much of Danny's catalog, only lacking 88 Elmira I believe. I even have the Jim Queen All 'Round Fiddle album ripped.

What This Is All About

I've been collecting live music from various sources since the mid to late 70's. Radio shows, TV broadcasts, radio show pre-FM CD's and vinyl LP's and some trades. Most of the shows posted here, I recorded and ripped myself. I always had top of the line stereo equipment and cassette and open reel recorders for those on air broadcasts.

I've downloaded plenty of bootlegged concerts from various blogs. As a rule I will only post stuff from my collection and not what is already available out there.

I also post out of print CDs and LPs from my collection.
I will repost from my readers anything someone sends me as long as it is either out of print or something that's not from someone else's blog. If you want to share a link for a cool item on your blog, or someone else's, please feel free to post it in the comments........

Enjoy and please leave a comment and pass this blog along.

Can you believe that so many out there are starving for the old WHFS? Amazing!

If you leave a comment, how about using a nickname instead of Anonymous. At least make up something please. Thanks!

I have reconsidered my position...and will re-upload dead links, so long as you go to that particular post and make the request from the comments page...
