- Friction Heat (1953-1958)
Swinging Country Rhythm - Bonnie Lou’s recorded output in the 1950s occupied that small niche of early country rockers that eschewed the backwoods hillbilly boogie style and, instead, created something more unique. Featuring a swinging country rhythm overlaid with horn solos and King’s trademark handclap boosted offbeat, Bonnie’s sound was often closer to Bill Haley than that of the other mid-west rockabillies. Up until now, Bonnie Lou’s classic King and Fraternity tracks from the 1950s have not been well-served by the reissue labels. This compilation finally re-releases the very best of her best material, so if you like a steady diet of good 1950s country, pop, rockabilly, doowop and rock ‘n’ roll – or a pleasing mixture of all those elements - you’re in for a treat.
