Mid-Century Sounds: Deep Cuts From the Desert


 

 

Floyd Ramsey was the unsung hero, and unassuming man behind the scenes who dramatically impacted the emerging sound of Pop music starting in the mid 1950s. His empire included the record labels Liberty Bell, REV, MCI, and Ramco Records, several publishing entities, and the legendary recording studio Audio Recorders of Arizona.

Ramsey’s innovative ideas, recording techniques, and keen eye for talent helped catapult singer Sanford Clark to the top of the Billboard Charts in 1956, then took Rock n’ Roll icon Duane Eddy into the mainstream conscious in 1958. Eddy’s distinctive “Twang Heard Round the World” gave rise to the 1960s Surf movement.

Ramsey had a remarkable ability to spot and nurture talent on all sides of the biz including recording engineer Jack Miller (The Rolling Stones, Henry Mancini, The Monkees, Herman and the Hermits, The Animals), musician/songwriter/producer Connie Conway (Sanford Clark), songwriter/producer/artist Lee Hazlewood (Duane Eddy, Nancy Sinatra, Dean Martin), and launch the careers of music icons including Waylon Jennings, Wayne Newton, Donna Fargo, Duane Eddy, Lee Hazlewood, and famed Wrecking Crew guitarist and Billboard Chart topper Al Casey to name just a few.
