Description

Ralph Gean has been writing, performing and recording his own unique variety of off-beat Rock, Rockabilly, and Country songs
since the late 1950s. As an early ‘60s contemporary of first-wave Rock n’Roll acts like Roy Orbison and Glenn Campbell, Gean
achieved a measure of regional success in Texas, cutting several 45s and receiving vigorous support from local radio. During the
‘70s Ralph then fell on hard times and fell out of the music business, with a stint of homelessness the ‘80s in – but he never stopped performing and recording music. In the mid-‘90s Gean was “discovered” by noted countercultural figures such as Jello Biafra (Dead Kennedys), Eric Allen (Apples In Stereo), and Boyd Rice (NON); all of whom would become involved in his career in one way or another. This lead to a comeback for Gean and the first CD release of his music. This two-disc set represents the very best of over 40 years of Ralph Gean’s music. Disc one is a collection of Ralph’s wackier songs from the early ‘60s to the late ‘90s; disc two is a “best of” collection of tracks recorded during Gean’s eight trips to Memphis’ Sun Studio. This release, with its photo-packed 24- page liner-notes comprises the definitive, comprehensive collection of Ralph Gean’s entire lengthy and multifaceted career. Gean has been interviewed and performed live on various radio shows and podcasts, as well as given interviews to websites and periodicals, in support of this double disc collection – most of which are available on his website at RalphGean.com.
