Barbara Clifford - Introducing - BLR-CD 26
Compact Disc - Digipack

Born and bred in Chicago, Barbara Clifford is mostly known for being one of the two singers in the band the Honeybees, a major exponent of Chicago Roots-Americana music.
Her passion led her to more musical adventures, most notably as in a backup vocalist for the Del Moroccoes or backup vocals for Nick Curran´s song «Reform School Girl».

Now her time as a solo artist has come and her first album is being released on Blue Lake Records. In digipack format, it features 15 songs. Among them are 10 originals from the pen of Barbara and Ken Mottet, the Chicago´s "Mayor of Rockabilly".

The songs are a blend of 50´s/60´s Rock´n´Roll, Rhythm & Blues with a touch of Soul. Many stand out for their melodic approach, something rare nowadays.

John Guster - Bits And Pieces - BLR-CD 25
Compact Disc - Digipack

Remember the Thunder Jets ? Scroll down this page for the EP which is at the start of the JCR Recording Service and led to Blue Lake Records !
A few years after the band broke up, Juan, the singer/guitar player, was back on stage under the name of John Guster with a crew of different great musicians.

Many of them play on these recordings, providing the great raw rockabilly sounds of this album and are known from bands like Mars Attacks, King Louie Combo, The Noisy Boys, The Grizzly Family, etc....there's even a duo with us singer Barbara Clifford !
Great combinations to the biting guitar of John Guster, who also presents three of his original compositions.

Los Hound Dogs - Ready to Bark ! - BLR-CD 24
Compact Disc - Digipack

This is the first album of Los Hound Dogs, a band from La Coruña in the north of Spain. However they are far from newcomers. The current line up is together since 2004 and counts among its credentials to have share the stage with legends like Wanda Jackson.

Their music can be discribed as wild 'n' greasy delinquent Rock 'n' Roll and Rockabilly. They mix up blasting originals, half of the tracks (Boneless Chicken, Toodaloo, etc...), with rockin' 50s covers and even succeed in paying tribute to Ronnie Dawson with Up Jumped The Devil.

Truly one of the greatest of todays spanish rockabilly bands !

King Louie Combo - Big Train - BLR-CD 22
Compact Disc - Digipack

We have been waiting a very long time for the King Louie Combo to release their second album. Actually the first one is the best selling Blue Lake Records album ! We believe the second one will follow the same path, considering the quality level of the music it includes !

This time the band invited some guest musicians and you will hear saxophon, piano, steel guitar and harmonica as well as the now classic trio sound. Six songs are originals from the band. Great rockabilly stuff like "Squeeze Don't Tease", reminiscent from there hit Honey Bee, more black oriented things like Jimmy Mc Cracklin' s "Reelin' & Rockin'" or the truly amazing cover of "Whole Lotta Shaking Going On".
All the material is glued together by an unbeatable swing, check "Smoking Chesterfields....", with it's warm and clear sound...these guys don't need to hide anything...
Did I tell you the liner notes are from Jimmy Sutton ?...there must be a reason....

Ella & The Roosters - BLR-CD 20
Compact Disc - Digipack

Many were thinking that it was not real...some said it was just a urban legend....but no it's finally here ! The debut album of Ella & The Roosters will hit you like an A-Bomb....! Ella's powerfull voice is backed by the Roosters, a trio of the best musicians from the Barcelona area, for a fantastic rock'n'roll / Rhythm'n'Blues sound.

8 from the 13 songs are written by the guitar player and define the rough style of this CD, based around a guitar sound reminiscing of Mickey Baker.
There is no doubt that this is different from any other female rhythm & blues album of the modern times and is soon going to be a classic.

Phil Trigwell - The Truth Became A Lie, BLR-CD 14
Compact Disc - Digipack + 8 pages colour booklet + video clip.

Following the more 50's pop oriented album "Del Rio Dan", and the country sounds of the CD release "Boogie Woogie Cowboy", Phil Trigwell is now back in true rockin' style ! Half of the tracks are great covers of 50's rockabilly numbers, while the other half are new compositions perfectly reflecting Phil's own distinctive style.

Very few people can claim to be able to write great original songs, but although Phil himself doesn't claim anything, we can vouch that he is a true master at original own compositions. What's more, his deep vocals prove that he is top ranking as one of the best singers in the scene.
Not forgetting that Phil's still out and about having great fun singing and playing (just listen to the last track) !

Compact Disc - Digipack + 8 pages colour booklet + video clip.

After her hit "Stressed Up" from the sampler "Lake Rattle & Roll, vol. 1" many have asked for a full studio album of Kick'em Jenny. So here it is at last!
Three years after the "Stressed Up" session, we managed to get the explosive blonde back a second time in the studio together with quality musicians to complete this CD, which include 5 of Jenny's own compositions.

Kick'em Jenny is no doubt the wildest female singer out there and none of that craziness is missing from these recordings, although they include two more softer songs. Take a look at the picture on the cover and check out the video clip ….and you'll know what we mean!

Althought they have been active for more then 10 years, this french band had only a "10 inch" out up to now.
Justice has been done and here is their first full length CD.

Influenced by the sounds of the late 50's and early 60's, this band has a particular place in the vintage scene.These recordings prove it with some rough rock'n'roll in the style of that era, that some call "white-rock". The CD is highlighted by 5 original compositions that fit perfectly among the covers of lesser known songs that fill this album.
If you like powerful rock'n'roll with high energy and screaming guitars, you can't go wrong with this one !
As a standard by now at Blue Lake Records, the Cd is packaged in a high quality Compact Disc - Digipack, featuring an 8 page color booklet + the usual video clip !

This is called a concept album, really uncommon for this kind of music ! Althought texts follow themselves in the "logic of the circle", we have here a great diversity of songs, fast rockabilly, bopper with trumpet, ballads...skilfully played in their own style with a full and powerful sound... Quality is present at every level, the cover is in a Compact Disc - Digipack format with a booklet and makes you think it's a jazz album from the late 50's, really a splendid item... ! ...and if you think that this must have been done by great serious mature musicians, just check the included video...!

Little Boy Arnold - Pretty Baby Blues - BLR-CD 05
Jewel case + 4 pages colour booklet + video clip.

Little Boy Arnold is a well known figure of the spanish rockabilly scene. He played and recorded for the last ten years in different line ups. But this is his first full lenght album, with 10 self penned songs.

Playing mostly as a trio without drums, a drummer have been added on some songs for more power on the rockin' numbers like "Rock Bop Tonight" or to add some indian feel to "Travellin' To Nowhere". As a total opposite, tracks like "Boxcar Boogie" are recorded fully accustically with no drums in a country boogie vain. On the black side, the dirty guitar work of "Beale Street Boogie" seems to jump out of the Memphis early 50's. A special mention to the guitar player who ventures in jazz instrumentals (Bye Bye Blues) and even throws some spanish touch in his style (Broken Heart).
So it's hard to describe the sound of this band apart from saying it's new ! Check for yourself !

Coming from the well known band the Wild Goners, the musicians of Earl & The Overtones have managed to lay down their own personality. Their first record shows it more than perfectly.

Their sound moves fortunately between wild, overdriven rockabilly (Leave My Woman Alone, She's a Sweetie, ...) et more subtle interpretations (Don't Be Square). These songs being own compositions as the album title (Dreamin' Love Affair). You will find the same plot in the well choosen covers with, among others, fantastic boppers (Nancy, Big Bad Wolf,...). Earl's vocals are hot and superb, just listen to the fantastic covers of "Best Dressed Beggar In Town" or "Kathleen" to be convinced. The musicians are also top class. Listen to the Train rhythm on "Run, Baby, Run" or the mad guitar solo on "I'm Gonna Move".
Success is guaranteed for this new band that you sure will find soon on the big european festivals.

Jewel case + 4 pages colour booklet + video clip.

We have been waiting for a long time for this one, it's here !
Consisting of experienced musicians, likely from the best you can find in this style in Switzerland, you would have expected an excellent debut album from the King Louie Combo. It's much more, these recordings are just fantastic ! It sure is a new reference...

In a well mixed choice of covers and own compositions, we find original and powerfull rockabilly ("Let's Go", "Honey Bee", etc...), a demented instrumental ("Hot Rod Rumble"), more jazzy sides where all the musical subtlety of the band comes alive ("Cattin' Around", "Two Of A Kind", etc...), with a visit to Johnny Horton ("One Woman Man") and on the other side to Rosco Gordon ("T-Model Boogie").
All wrapped in a hot quality sound that will please anyone !

Johnny Loda - That's Me !!, BLR-CD 02
Jewel case + 8 pages colour booklet + video clip.

Playing in Italy for more than 20 years in different bands where he proved to be one of the best guitar players in the land, Johnny Loda brings out at last his first album as a solo artist.

Far away from all the sterile discussion about the matter, his song list dips as well out of old traditionnal country like the cover of Carl Smith "Go, Boy, Bo", as out of newer rockabilly bands like the Velvetones "Back In The Cruel World". Of course he stops by great rockabilly classics like Jimmy Lloyd's "Where The Rio De Rosa Flows". He also has an open mind for his own compositions, where he can switch from a sweet country ballad as in "Sweet 50's Girl", to winking at the rockabilly authentic trend with the wild "I Don't Need".
Johnny Loda...That's him...! A great musician with an italian flavour and a great CD with a vintage sound ! Also features a 12 minutes video.

Jewel case + 4 pages colour booklet + video clip.

After having been the revelation of the Rockabilly Rave 2003, the "Rough Rockbilly Combo" is back with a new album ! In the steps of their first CD, the Noisy Boys give us this time a little more with 4 original songs. No doubt that the fast stroller "Dance The Stroll" or the title track "What's Damn' Wrong ?" will be hits. The boys also boaden their repertoire with lesser rough songs like "I've Got Living On My Mind" or by inviting a pianist like on "Johnny Valentine". But "Hep Cat" or "Dateless Night", close to a volcanic eruption, will demonstrate that they stayed true to themselves ! And what to say about "Do The Bop, Bop, Bop", a song that seems to have been written specially for the band. Also don't miss the 15 minutes video file that's on the CD !

All the way from the heart of Switzerland, the Reptiles play only original songs on their first album. Their music goes in a neo-rockabilly direction and runs like an express train at full speed. This CD, recorded with a vintage sound, will please any fan of the genre. The songs lyrics are excellent ! For example, you'll find great stories from the life of Teddy Boys or other rockers. Many will recognize themselves in songs like "Sworn To Fun" or "Rockabilly Kelly". If you like comics don't miss the story of the "Silver Surfer" or be afraid with the fearful "Screaming Psychedelic Werewolf. Also, for their german speaking friends, the Reptiles haven't hesitate to sing 4 songs in german !

Again a first album ! Rhythm 55 offer here no less than 17 tracks. Apart from their qualities, these musicians show an originality that's scarce in the 50's music today! They perfectly mix different styles from country to rhythm and Blues. With 5 compositions, the band proves his skills to write his own songs, like "Don't Let Me Stand", a fast bopper, or "Sweet Sour Melody", a hot sound rockin' ballad. Great covers like, "Mess Around" from Ray Charles, turned into a stroller, "I'm Left, You're Right, She's Gone", transformed into a saturated blues, the country ballad "Hearts Of Stone" seems just out of a Sun session, or "Milkcow Blues", a perfect vintage rockabilly. There is something to please everyone !

The first recordings of this band are really a blast in the face. This is rough and powerful rockabilly with a hot sound. This first try is undoubtedly a masterpiece from the rough boys, who got together just about a year ago. Althought the band perfectly fits in the "authentic" trend, the music on this CD will attract a much more broader audience.Any lover of wild rockabilly will find satisfaction here.The opening track "If you love my woman" is just the example of that ! Also listen how they turned "Eager Boy" into a perfect groovy stroller, or the monstruous sound of "Coffee Baby". No doubt, you'll be convinced...!

Vinyl EP

Veteran singer Phil Trigwell demonstrates again that he is a master when it comes to rockabilly. Not only is he a talented composer (his melodies and lyrics are from a level seldom found in the genre nowadays), but his also a fantastic singer.
The original country rock "Night Time" starts with a low voice that rises with intensity during the refrain. The wild cover of "You're My Baby" is loaded with energy. "One Kiss", another original, is a great melodic rockabilly and Johnny Cash's classic "Big River" is outstanding ! This vinyl edition is limited to 500 copies.
Only a few copies left !

"My Time Ain't Long" is an original composition with rough sound and supercharged guitar solos. The cover of "Long Blond Hair", mellower than the original, is a perfect swinger. "A Little More Wise", another composition, is built up on a catchy guitar riff, that you won't forget. The classic "Domino" is savagely covered with an irrestible beat.
A must have !

Their new album is simply extraordinary. You'll find on it a majority of own compositions of an exceptional quality. The recordings are done in a vintage way, although they are of better quality than on the first album. This brings out the fantastic voice of the singer, relly perfect for this music.
