    It's very rare that a Charlie Rich cover is better than Charlie's version, this is an exception. This is a great job, and I think it sounds very close to Billy Lee Riley's Sun material. I have the Sun Discography, and I need to look at the session info for this to see who's playing guitar and piano.

    This is classic Sun rockabilly.

    I emailed them and they told me it would be back in stock in around 10 days, so I placed an order. I’m sure your ok, you would have seen the backorder notification when you placed your order.

    Yeah, I got an email today saying the same. It would be in stock in a week to 10 days. Glad I'm finally getting this and for a good price!

    Memphis Belles was a birthday present to myself a couple years ago. Ernie B had it for about half price the original cost. Love it!

    Non-Bear alert! This is a CD I've been after for years, you just have to keep checking because everything becomes available for a decent price eventually.

    Neat! Glad to see Omni are still active as a label. They've done some interesting artist-focused releases which have helped to fill some gaps.

    The label has no real web presence to speak of. It's supposedly owned by Australian ambient/industrial musician David Thrussell. Guess he likes the label's projects being a complete surprise.
    Very true. Most of their releases seem to go out of print very quickly, so they're a get-it-or-regret-it kind of thing. I recently managed to find one such compilation of theirs called The World is a Monster. As always with Omni, the title and cover photo are rather ostentatious for a collection of hardcore 50's hillbilly music from Columbia Records, but there are a bunch of great rarities to be heard. Apologies if I've linked to this delightfully sparse bit of boppin' gospel before:

    The First time I ever saw that was in a review in "Country Music Magazine." I looked for it for years and years as it was like the only cd that had Mac's classic songs on it. One day I was on ebay and found a listing that was titled "Big CD Boxed set." It was Mac Wiseman "Tis Sweet to Be Remembered" and was buy it now for $7.00. Ha!!!!!!!!
