Brilliant 1957 Arizona Gem Makes Mad Men Soundtrack This Weekend

Mad Men


Phoenix-based REV Records recorded many Arizona artists in the late 1950’s, from Teen Idol tunes to ‘White Doo-Wop’ to Country Western Pop.

Most of the catalog has faded to obscurity over the decades, but modern indie label Fervor Records has managed to uncover a few gems that are soon to be re-released, and are already making their way into the fabric of today’s popular period piece tv shows, namely AMC’s Mad Men.

Charismatic crooner George Peck released a 45 with REV in 1957, showcasing his velvety vocal delivery and lush backing vocals a la Elvis Presley’s singers, The Jordanaires.

His acoustic guitar-driven track I Ask Of Heaven, which appeared on the flipside of You’re The One, made it into the soundtrack of this week’s Mad Men episode, “Christmas Waltz” (airdate 5/20/12).

Tune in this Sunday, May 20th at 10/9 central to hear George Peck’s I Ask Of Heaven, before it emerges from the Fervor Records archives.

Hear the song in it’s entirety right now on the Fervor Records YouTube channel
