(2011/Fantastic Voyage) 30 tracks Country music icon, businessman, theme-park owner and fast-food chain founder, Conway Twitty, also happened to be a rock & roll singer. For some reason, this latter talent has tended to lag behind in the man´s career overviews, which is nothing short of a travesty. Good that Conway´s country sides from the late sixties onwards are, they don´t have the testosterone and the kinetic energy of his MGM recordings from the late fifties. During this shoulder-shakin´ stage of his career, the man had fire in his belly, ambition in his eyes, and hope in his heart. He could roar like the lion on the MGM crest head, and he couldn´t get enough of the rock & roll stuff that drove his desires. What follows is the cream of Conway Twitty´s Metro Goldwyn crop, all of which was captured on tape at the Owen Bradley studio in Nashville twenty-eight month period beginning in May 1958. 01. Tell Me One More Time (Conway Twitty, Jack Nance) Warner Chappell Music Ltd. MGM K12918 (August 1960) Conway was one busy guy right from the outset. As a case in point, ´Tell Me One More Time´ had to be recorded in between trips to Hollywood. Following a crash course in a New York drama school, the rookie rock & roller was cast in Platinum High School followed by the analogous College Confidential. However, his role as a would-be matinee idol was short-lived and he concentrated instead on developing his career as an album and singles artist. `Tell Me´, with its 2/4 time signature, featured the twin lead guitars of Hank Garland and Al Bruno. 02. Hallelujah, I Love Her So (Ray Charles) Carlin Music Corp. MGM 5E3744, MGM X 1640 (March 1959) It didn´t take long before the rock & roll fraternity began investigating the works of Ray Charles. Elvis Presley was quick off the mark with his version of Got a Woman´ and the Everly Brothers gave a new lease of life to `Leave My Woman Alone´. Conway was clearly at home with `Hallelujah, I Love Her So´, and his arrangement threw the spotlight on two key members of the Jordanaires. Gordon Stoker enforced each hook line with a florid ´Halleluh!´, and bass singer Ray Walker intro-ed the outro with an impassioned `Man, I gotta hear that again. 03. I Vibrate (From My Head to My Feet) ´I Vibrate´ ranks as one of the toughest rockers Conway cut during his MGM tenure. The song unashamedly took license from ´Great Balls of Fire´ which happened to be top of the charts when Conway and Jack Nance proffered their pens. Cut at Conway´s first session for the label, the track featured the unmistakable sound of Joe E Lewis´s Gretsch Duo Jet. Joe was a seasoned road player (he´d previously worked with Sonny Burgess) and, as can be heard here, he employed a thrashing rhythm style built around a 9th bar-chord. 04. You Win Again Wishing (UK) Ltd. MGM SE3786, MGMX 1679 (September 1959) If Conway owned a copy of Jerry Lee´s ´GBOF´, then it´s fair to say he was inspired to cut `You Win Again´ - the song that dwelt on the flipside of the record. He did though raise the key, and he allotted no less than sixteen measures for a double-length solo from Al Bruno. One of eight siblings, this pint-sized fret-boarder hailed from Ontario, Canada, where he was born Albert V. Bruneau. His arrival in the Twitty band was marked by his boss purchasing a pair of matching Gibson ES-335´s. In due course Al went on to work with Buck Owens, Duane Eddy, T. G. Sheppard and, most recently, Dale Watson. 05. Hey Little Lucy! (Don´tcha Put No Lipstick On) Chappell Music Ltd. MGM K12785 (April 1959) Jim Vienneau, the A&R head at MGM´s pop and country department, was often spoiled for choice when it came to scoping out material for the Twitty sessions. Conway happened to be an extremely inventive composer, particularly in the songs he crafted with his drummer Jack Nance. But after ´It´s Only Make Believe´ topped the charts, producer Vienneau found himself inundated with demos arriving on a daily basis from the publishing houses of New York. The delightful ´Hey Little Lucy!´ was dispatched from Aaron Schroeder with a lyric by Sharon Silbert, a writer who´d recently scored with `Schoolboy Crush´. 06. Easy To Fall In Love (Conway Twitty, Jack Nance) Warner Chappell Music Ltd. MGM SE3818 (February 1960) To his eternal credit, Conway Twitty was the recognized inventor of the ´beat ballad´. With a solid backbeat and a growled vocal to convey the message, the format stood apart from the heart-on-sleeve ballads that so often sank in a sea of
