Charlie Feathers !

Charlie Feathers was a key engineer of the bridge between country music and rock & roll. No one really knows if he taught the Sun masters all they know, as he often claimed, but his records make that case irrelevant, since they stand very tall on their own merits. Feathers' stubborn insistence on combining elements of country, raw blues, and bluegrass to make his own version of the rockabilly experience showed him to be one of the genre's most original and enduring artists. I’m tellin’ ya, the man was a true hero.

The 2CD on Revenant is so essential. He was the godfather of rockabilly, no doubt.
