Overview

Culled from the vaults of MGM Records, That'll Flat Git It, Vol. 7 is very similar to the Decca volumes in Bear Family's arcane rockabilly series. The disc is divided between rock & rollers who sound like weirder versions of Elvis Presley and country artists trying to hitch their wagons to the rockabilly bandwagon. By and large, the MGM artists aren't as strong as those on Decca, although Marvin Rainwater handled rockabilly better than many of his country counterparts. For fetishists, the bizarre backwoods boogie of Jimmy Swan ("Country Cattin'"), Bernie Early ("Your Kisses Kill Me"), the Berry Kids ("You're My Teen Age Baby"), Ron Hargrave ("Drive-In Movie"), Bob Gallion's "My Square Dancin' Mama," Buck Griffin ("Stutterin' Papa") and Carson Robison ("Rockin' and Rollin' With Grandmaw") is prime material, but the best music on the collection arguably comes from Rainwater and Conway Twitty, who have stronger voices and material than most of their peers on this collection.
