From 1958 tapes that lay undiscovered for over 40 years, Tommy Hill shows his rock 'n' roll soul. Born in Texas in 1929, he worked with Hank Williams, Webb Pierce (for whom he wrote the big hit Slowly) and Ray Price. He also helped bring Buddy Holly to Nashville. When the music changed, Tommy was ready. "I was raised on that Billy-Rock," he said. "So I got me a fifth of whiskey, got me some pickers together, and went over and cut sides. Had a big time doing it. We cut one night when Presley was in town, and I brought D.J. Fontana down 'cause I knew him from the Louisiana Hayride. I just said, 'Hey boys, get you a drink, grab a hold of it and here we go'. We didn't do a lot of rehearsing." Tommy was disappointed that these songs weren't released back in ’58, but now, twelve years after his death, his two best and rockin’est songs finally have made it to 45 RPM.
