The first of two Bear Family retrospectives devoted to the music of Eddie Noack, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes spans the early recordings, 1948 to 1961. Collecting all of his 1950s singles, plus 13 unissued masters and alternate takes, along with 27 acoustic demos, it gives the fullest overview yet of the most vital years of Noack's career. Only one of these records, 1958s Have Blues - Will Travel, was a hit for Noack himself, and most people never heard these records when they were current. When he died in 1978, it was as 'songwriter' Eddie Noack rather than singer-songwriter. This collection (and the forthcoming disc of his 1960s material) corrects this, and redefines the artist as he should have been known in life, and wanted to be known to posterity - not simply as a 'songwriter,' but as a singer, songwriter, and defender of 'pure country' music. This deluxe 3-CD package is accompanied by a revelatory, newly researched 73-page biography of Noack by country music historian Andrew Brown.
