Warren Smith was one of the greatest talents signed to Sam Phillips' Sun Records. Possessing one of the label's most heartfelt voices, Smith was equally adapt singing emotional country ballads as he was out-and-out rock 'n' roll.
Rockin' With Mr. Uranium contains Smith's storming debut single for Sun, "Rock 'n' Roll Ruby" (written by Johnny Cash), the Roy Orbison-penned hit single "So Long, I'm Gone", "Ubangi Stomp", the barnstorming "Miss Froggie" and his version of Slim Harpo's "Got Love If You Want It", recognised as a rockabilly classic.
Newly-remastered from the original Sun tapes and pressed on audiophile-quality 10-inch vinyl with definitive career-spanning sleeve notes by Sun Records authority Adam Komorowski, the first 1,000 copies only are on green vinyl.
The Sun Rockabilly Legends Series is personally overseen by Sun Entertainment Corporation president John Singleton in Nashville and Charly Records founder Jean-Luc Young and continues the long relationship between the companies begun by Shelby Singleton and Young almost 50 years ago.
He was probably the best pure singer for country music I ever heard...
