A favourite of Delbert McClinton and Doug Sahm, Ray Sharpe is one of the few black musicians who successfully blended rock and roll, blues and country music. Sharpe has been called a “black rockabilly” musician and has actually been praised for sounding “white”, a role reversal of normal racial relations involving rock and roll/RandB vocal performances.

His Texan style encompasses all of the best elements of early rock. As a singer-songwriter, he has mined Chuck Berry-type humour from the situations and wordplay in his songs. As a guitarist, he alternates snarling single note Albert King guitar bends with twangy, free-flowing rockabilly. Some of Sharpe’s most important recordings were co-produced by the always fascinating Lee Hazlewood in 1959, which goes a long way to explaining why they sound so cool.

Ray Sharpe’s songs have been recorded by acts ranging from Neil Young to swamp guitarist Danny James and bottleneck master J.B. Hutto, and his entire approach was a huge influence on Southwest rocker Bobby Fuller. These recordings also feature a virtual who’s who of fabulous musicians, including Duane Eddy, Al Casey, Buddy Wheeler and Larry Knechtel, among others.
