Greatest Grooves

Greatest Grooves

by Joe Poovey



Greatest Grooves follows the career of Joe Poovey from his early country and rockabilly recordings from the '50s to some of his later efforts ('70s through the '90s), which range from straight country to retro-rockabilly made for European labels. The collection entirely bypasses the '60s, during which Poovey made some of his most commercially successful records, but most listeners will be primarily interested in the '50s material, which makes up over half the disc. "Move Around" and "Ten Long Fingers" are minor masterpieces of the original rockabilly era, and are the primary reasons why Poovey is remembered today. An interesting bonus is two Christmas recordings from a 78 made by Poovey as a young teen.
