Dig City Records

One of the most in-demand session guitarists of his day in the realms of 1940s Country music, William 'Zeb Turner' Grishaw is revered among fans of hillbilly boogie for his string of cheerful and chiefly up-tempo recordings for the King label in the first half of the 1950s. Turner's King 78s and 45s are part of the foundation on which rockabilly and rock 'n' roll are built and even though his name is not remembered as well as those of the chief architects of those genres, his role in their creation is unmistakable. While it couldn't possibly include every track from every session he played on, Jasmine's new Turner compilation brings together every recording that Turner made in his own name for King between 1949 and 1953 and adds some sides that he leased to King a few years later, up to when he stopped recording in the early 60s. The finite playing time of a CD does not allow us to include everything Turner recorded, but this is nevertheless the most complete collection of his masters that has ever been issued on a single CD before. Remastered as always from the best possible sources, with detailed annotation on Turner and his career, this is what country music sounded like - at it's very best - before the arrival of 'The Nashville Sound' later in the 50s. More than 20 years have passed since Turner's catalogue was anthologised digitally for the first time, and demand for his records still remains strong among hillbilly and rockabilly collectors. Jasmine is happy to put these terrific tunes back into circulation after such a long break and we are confident that it will be a strong seller!
