Album Notes
The Fireballs first success was charting guitar instrumentals "Fireball", "Torquay", "Bulldog", "Vaquero" and "Quite A Party". In 1960 Jimmy Gilmer filled in the slot opened by the then departing original vocalist Chuck Tharp. Three years later, Gilmer & the Fireballs had the largest selling 45 rpm single of the year in with their #1 for 5 weeks "Sugar Shack". After decades, Tharp is back and very present in several of these music tracks.
The Fireballs music roots was in the learning and playing of 'western' music', as it was called at the time, and progressed to be called 'country'. Their style reflects additional influences in mexican music heard in the southwest with a flair of early rock 'n roll present. Hence the Fireballs style may be termed more accurately as "southwest rock & roll" This Cd reflects some of all of the above musical stew. Original Fireball vocalist, Chuck Tharp, later came to be a co-writer of Johnny Duncan's "Sweet Country Woman". George and Barbara Tomsco were co-writers of "Goin' Away" recorded by Ray Price. Also included here on track #11 is the Fireballs own Country version along with another boot-scooter "Sweet Lucy" track #8, and a marriage made in heaven between country and 50's rock 'n roll with "Cowboys Still Like To Rock & Roll". And never to depart to far from their original guitar instrumentals, four are included in this lineup. On occasion, support musicians were called upon:
John Sage & Johnny Mulhair-bass;
Bryan Caldwell,Pat Rabich, Brad Billingsley-drums;
Roger Workman-steel guitar;
Leonard (Len) Anderson, Gay Gerhart and Buddy Martin-backup vocals;
Dan Doran, Len Anderson and Roger Snyder-piano;
Pat Ireland-fiddle;
Ed Korte-Sax.
Dance, listen, smile and enjoy like...everybody's watching!
