Mac Curtis
Singles Collection 1956-1965 CD

A massive 33 track collection which covers all of Mac Curtis' singles released between 1956 and 1965.
Mac Curtis (1939-2015) began his career in the mid 1950s with a sequence of singles that later became top rockabilly classics, such as Grandaddy's Rockin', If I Had Me a Woman and You Ain't Treatin' Me Right.
In the 1960s he started a career as a radio DJ and became a respected and nationally known figure in the country music industry.
While spinning other singers' hits on the airwaves Mac released many singles on almost as many record labels through the early and mid 1960s.
In the late '60s his stints on the Epic and GRT labels produced two excellent LPs Sunshine Man and Early In the Morning, plus a string of singles.
The following decade's rockabilly revival led to a steady stream of Mac Curtis singles and albums on the legendary Rollin' Rock label.
Although best known for his 1950s rockabilly recordings - the frenziest of the era - Mac Curtis' country recordings are equally as good.
His very last album, released in 2011, Songs I Wish I Wrote, was a return to his roots and a beautiful set of country songs carefully chosen by the artist himself.
Now for the very first time all early Mac Curtis singles from various record labels are combined on one Compact Disc.
These thirty-three tracks represent in a chronological order all the songs originally released on Mac Curtis singles from 1956 to 1965 plus two early demos and an alternative take, which has been previously available only on a 78 rpm single.
