Hop on Down the Line 2CD

This double disc set is unusually subtitled "The Almost Complete Recordings of Ralph Willis".
That is because one of his commercially released discs seems to have rarely, if ever, surfaced among collectors.
The two sides have also never appeared on vinyl LP and CD or any other Ralph Willis collection - even those entitled Complete.
This release is an essential purchase for any Ralph Willis fan as it is now the only place to find all of his known recordings
He had a highly distinctive style and sound which makes it difficult to understand why he never had a hit.
This collection contains 47 tracks - so he must have been popular to generate that much repertoire.
His 1953 recording Gonna Hop on Down the Line is probably Willis' best known recording.
For several years now, it has been a huge disc at rock 'n' roll and rockabilly dances across Europe and is a guaranteed floor filler.
Ralph Willis is one of those rare Blues artists whose guitar style and vocal delivery on up tempo numbers seemed to predict the coming of the rockabilly guitar styles.
Accompanying booklet includes detailed liner notes.
