Product Notes

TRACKS: 1. SWEET PERFUME 2. THE PARTING DANCE 3. WHAT'LL YOU HAVE 4. LONG TIME WITH THE WINE 5. CALL ME LUCKY / ROCK-OLA RUBY (Medley) 6. HIDE AND WATCH 7. WE PASSED BY HERE (EL MORRO) West's writings of tracks number 3 and 4 began in 1958 for the purpose of making a demo for Buddy Holly. (Buddy had previously requested that West send him any new material for his consideration due to the phenomenal success of 'Rave On' and 'Oh Boy!') But when West learned of Holly's tragic aircraft accident that took his life, West temporarily shelved these two songs. It wasn't until recently that he finished and recorded them. Sonny West made his debut as a singer-songwriter with his recording of 'Rock-Ola Ruby' in 1956, released on the late Norman Petty's Nor-Va-Jak label. Later West wrote, recorded, and released 'Oh Boy!' and 'Rave On' in the 1950's, which were ultimately transformed into Rock-and-Roll classics by his friend and contemporary, Buddy Holly. West is one of the original inductees into the Rockabilly Hall of Fame.
