New Hank C Burnette video: Bop, Bop Baby

Hack C Burnette has shared a new video:
Bop, Bop Baby

The rockin' continues...this time I'm strolling down the lane of the world's most important roots music label EVER, the Yellow SUN Label out of Memphis, Tenn. The home and starting place of the most amazing rooster of roots music talent on the face of the planet!!!! Elvis, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Roy Orbison, Jerry Lee, Charlie Rich, Carl Mann, Rufus Thomas Jr., Dr. Ross, Charlie Feathers, Warren Smith, Billy Riley, Ray Smith, Bill Justis...the list goes on and on!! Not to mention the truckload of blues greats that Sam Phillips recorded (such as Howlin' Wolf, Sleepy John Estes, B.B. King, Walter Horton, Honeyboy Edwards, Little Walter, Earl Hooker, etc) and icenced to independent labels like 4 Star, Modern, RPM, Chess, Gilt-Edge, Trumpet, Duke, Checker, J-B, etc. Not bad for a small independent one man operation that once was described as (quote): "A hole in the wall completely surrounded by Cadillacs"!!
The track I've pulled out of my tape library for this upload is yet another little toe-tapper that I recorded in (you guessed it!) the '70s, the College Kids' (Wade Moore & Dick Penner) SUN rockabilly jumper, "Bop, Bop Baby"! Straight ahead one take only (on all accounts) and a fun one to stick your teeths into! Hope you get as much pleasure out of it as I did recording it! Get with it...
