Hayden Thompson was one of the big names in the European rockabilly revival of the 1970's, due to the discovery of his unreleased tracks on Sun Records. The fact is that his only single with Phillips International left behind a bunch of classics like Mama Mama, Fairline Rock or Rockabilly Gal, which had to wait 20 long years to come out of the can. But Hayden had continued his musical activity since his early days, and in 1961 he worked again with his old Sun Records friends Roland Janes, at his new Sonic Studio, while he was working on launching his own label, Rolando.
Hayden recorded three songs there, but nothing happened, waiting more than 25 years to be released on Bear Family Records great LP - Fairline Rock LP in 1988, collecting some of the rarest and unreleased Hayden's early sides.
THIS IS COUNTRY and I WANNA GET HOME are great country rockers with strong early 60's feelin' and some boom-chicka-boom too, both written by Hayden himself.
On the other hand, Hayden's cover of Leiber and Stoller's classics KANSAS CITY, rocks on its own, with the help of Travis Wammack's super -stinging guitar.
Three songs collected in the same session now released for the first time all together, in the sacred form a 7inch vinyl record, cut a 45RPM
