ROY MOSS AND FRIENDS - ARKANSAS ROCKERS
Release Date: 10/01/2014
Catalogue No.: ETCD1046
Record Label: EL TORO
Format: CD

Well placed for picking up the first rumblings of rockabilly from both Tennessee and Texas, Arkansas artists were responsible for some of the earliest examples of hillbilly rock 'n' roll, even though they usually needed to travel to Memphis, Nashville, Cincinnati or, even, Chicago to record at first. Our leading man on this trawl through Arkansas' finest rockers is'Mr Action' - Roy Moss..."
