He’s the #1 rock and roll instrumentalist of all time, a Rock and Roll Hall of Famer of long standing, and the sound of his Gretsch 6120 brought the word “twang” into the pop music vocabulary. He’s Duane Eddy, and here, for the first time ever, is a collection devoted to the classic single sides he recorded for the RCA label during the ‘60s. Those familiar with Duane’s discography know that it had two distinct periods: one, the late-‘50s/early-‘60s recordings for the Jamie label, and, two, the early-to-mid-‘60s sides for RCA Victor. Strangely, though he had seven chart hits for the label, the RCA Victor material has never really seen a good compilation come out in the U.S.; now, in true Real Gone fashion, they have assembled the A and B-sides of all 11 original mono singles he recorded for RCA, remastered from the original tapes by Vic Anesini at Battery Studios and painstakingly compared to the original 45’s to ensure maximum fidelity to that original sound that Duane perfected with Lee Hazlewood among others during his stay at RCA. The booklet includes detailed liner notes by Ed Osborne drawn from a new interview with Duane, festooned with rare European picture sleeves and photos from the RCA archives. Features such classics as “(Dance with the) Guitar Man,” “The Ballad of Paladin,” “Boss Guitar,” and “The Son of Rebel Rouser”…22 tracks of twang!
