Blue Fire & Rarities [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
The music of The Fireballs came out of the creative hothouse that was Norman Petty's Clovis studios (where Buddy Holly cut great music too). 'Blue Fire' was finished in 1960 & intended as the follow-up to their second album 'Vaquero'. It never saw the light of day as the Top Rank label went bankrupt before the album's release. A superb set in true stereo, it is hard to believe that it's taken so long for these 12 tracks to see a first release. 'Rarities', meanwhile, gathers together 18 previously unissued & 1 issued recordings in a real musical bonus for all die-hard instrumental enthusiasts & hard-core Fireballs fans. 31 tracks in all plus a 12-page booklet with extensive liner notes & B&W photos. Ace. 1993.
