Reissued for the First Time on LP Direct from the Master Tapes; Exclusive Liner Notes by Alvin Lucia and Unpublished Original Photos

Direct from the master tapes for the first time on LP, come the original, earthshaking rockabilly/proto-gothabilly/country-noir-pop 45s of Jody Reynolds. A seminal and influential figure, without Jody Reynolds there would be no Cramps, no Gun Club and no Bad Seeds. His first (and massive) 1958 hit "Endless Sleep" spawned an entire genre/generation of Death Discs or Splatter Platters ("Teen Angel," "Leader Of The Pack"). Featured here are Reynolds' most notable and sultry sides, pulled from painfully rare 45s like "Don't Jump" (a teen-suicide/cautionary tale produced by pop-svengali Lee Hazlewood), two rare duets with a pre-"Ode To Billie Joe" Bobbie Gentry and a brilliant and previously unreleased mournful murder-ballad. Unjustly neglected, Jody Reynolds was a sublime and moody songsmith and performer, crafting etheric ballads ("The Girl With The Raven Hair"), smoldering rockers ("Fire Of Love") and twanging instrumentals ("Thunder") alike.
