Al Casey (USA)
I'm A Guitar Man
(Double CD)

© El Toro Records 2011

Having unearthed the recordings of talented Texas session-guitarist Hal Harris (ETCD 1033), El Toro Records now turns the spotlight to the North West to highlight the magic of Phoenix-based session-man, Al Casey. A big fish in a relatively small pond, Al Casey was already a local radio and TV celebrity when his friend Lee Hazlewood began using him and his band on sessions for the latter's Viv Records in 1955; so much so that Casey invariably received a credit on each label - an accolade that session musicians rarely received in those days. The following year, Lee Hazlewood and Al Casey hit paydirt with Sanford Clark's huge hit, "The Fool" and many hits followed for Casey throughout the '50s with collaborations on hits by Jody Reynolds and Duane Eddy, amongst others. Here are those early collaborations, both big and small, peppered with Al's own attempts at being a rock 'n' roll record star in Phoenix and afterwards, following his relocation to Los Angeles, where he became one of the founders of the renowned group of session musicians known as The Wrecking Crew...
