Truly a compilation of rare material, this 31-track disc features alternate takes of some of their best known sides («Yakky Doo,» «Rik-A-Tik,» and «Torquay»), as well as many tracks seeing the commercial light of day for the first time. But the real bonus here is the first time issuance of «Blue Fire,» a concept album which was recorded in 1960. Not the place to start listening to The Fireballs, but a great place to visit after you’ve heard the hits. The music of The Fireballs came out of the creative hothouse that was Norman Petty’s Clovis studios (where Buddy Holly cut great music too). ‘Blue Fire’ was finished in 1960 & intended as the follow-up to their second album ‘Vaquero’. It never saw the light of day as the Top Rank label went bankrupt before the album’s release. A superb set in true stereo, it is hard to believe that it’s taken so long for these 12 tracks to see a first release. ‘Rarities’, meanwhile, gathers together 18 previously unissued & 1 issued recordings in a real musical bonus for all die-hard instrumental enthusiasts & hard-core Fireballs fans.
