The Hickory Records Story, Vol. 1

All Music Guide - Steve Leggett
Started by country legend Roy Acuff and songwriter Fred Rose as the recording, and retail, arms of their Acuff-Rose Publishing Company, Hickory Records was primarily a country label, but did branch out into pop and rock on occasion. And thanks to an unerring ability to spot odd crossover material, the label actually enjoyed a surprising success on the pop charts in the early- to mid- '60s. The songs on this collection range from the ragged Cajun anthem "Louisiana Man" by brothers Rusty and Doug Kershaw, to the impossibly sappy "Morning Girl" by the Neon Philharmonic. Also included here is the one of a kind classic "Bread and Butter," by the Newbeats, which is as catchy as...

Also included here is the one of a kind classic "Bread and Butter," by the Newbeats, which is as catchy as it is stupid. In all, the label seems to have followed the advice set out in another Hickory hit, "Don't Worry 'Bout the Mule," by Glenn Barber, which implores "don't worry about the mule/just load the wagon." A willingness to take chances and step outside the lines has made Hickory Records an interesting label, but this collection is a little hard to endure at times.

    Intro to long-standing Nashville indie

    Founded in the mid-¿50s, and run by Wesley Rose, son of Acuff-Rose co-founder, Fred Rose, Hickory was a prime outlet for the publishing company¿s song catalog. The label scored country hits by Roy Acuff, Don Gibson and others, and rounded the bend into the ¿60s by taking on pop acts such as The Newbeats (''Bread and Butter''), Sue Thompson (''James Hold the Ladder Steady''), and British troubadour, Donovan. <br><br> The eighteen tracks of volume one combine country and pop, ranging from Doug Kershaw¿s cajun-flavored ''Louisiana Man'' to Neon Philharmonic¿s baroque rock ''Morning Girl.'' Additional highlights include Bill Carlisle¿s hand-clapping ''No Help Wanted,'' Gibson¿s 1971 comeback (and Eddy Raven¿s first songwriting hit) ''Country Green,'' and a quintet of John D. Loudermilk tunes that include Kris Jensen¿s pre-Everly¿s recording of ''Torture'' and Ernie Ashworth¿s crossover hit, ''Talk Back Trembling Lips.'' <br><br> Absent are tracks from Acuff (recently anthologized by Varese Sarabande), as well as early hits scored by Donovan (which, to be fair, were Pye UK recordings rather than Hickory originals). The liner notes focus more on Acuff-Rose than Hickory itself, and with no real background on the songs and singers, the tracks are left to speak for themselves. But speak they do, in surprising variety and vitality. As one of a handful of long-lived Nashville indies, Hickory¿s catalog of memorable gems makes for great listening.
