2010 collection from the cult Rockabilly hero (not to be confused with the spandex-clad bass player from Kiss). Tupelo-born Gene Simmons was responsible for some of the best Rockabilly cuts never to emerge on the Sun label! A gifted tunesmith, Simmons' self-penned gems such as 'Juicy Fruit' and 'Crazy Woman' languished unissued for years, whilst his only Sun release, 'Drinkin' Wine' b/w 'I Done Told You', was held back by label boss Sam Phillips for eighteen months, by which point the Rockabilly craze had peaked nixing his chances of a hit. Covering the period 1955-58, this collection gathers together all of Simmons' Sun recordings including alternate takes and unreleased masters.
