  • Digitally remastered by Peter Rynston at Charly Studios, London, England.
  • Shake Around collects 21 of Smith's Sun recordings and two sides of a single on Veejay. His hit "Rockin' Little Angel" on Judd, a label run by Sam Phillips' brother, isn't included, but several revered rockabilly tracks are present ("Shake Around," "Willing and Ready"). Smith vacillated between teen-oriented pop and Elvis-influenced rock & roll and was sometimes artistically successful with both. Many Charlie Rich compositions are featured, as are a handful of recordings by Ray Rockin' Smyth & the Rockin' Rockers, who may or may not be Ray Smith. Anyone hungry for vintage Sun recordings will enjoy at least some of this package, as will rockabilly collectors. ~ Greg Adams
