Founded in 1945, Chicago's Mercury Records rapidly accrued major label status and grew into a full-service label, its massive roster encompassing everything from blues and R&B to country and jazz and a wealth of pop (the logo was a leader in covering R&B hits for the pop market).

Mercury also signed a small army of quality rockabilly and rock and roll artists during the mid-to-late 1950s, and they're the focus of this bountiful collection. Blistering classics by a pre-fame Conway Twitty, Memphis mainstay Eddie Bond, and the still-active Narvel Felts are on board, along with rare gems by Curtis Gordon (his torrid Draggin' appears without the usual startling reverb effects), VARIOUS ARTISTS That’ll Flat Git It!
