In 1956 Sonny West bought a new Martin guitar and decided to have his name painted on it. Trying to make his name different from the numerous jazz and blues artists named Sonny, the idea of finding a different spelling sounded okay and that´s how the painter put the name as Sonee West. When the time came for ´´Rock-Ola Ruby´´/´´Sweet Rockin´ Baby´´ to be released as West´s first record, the novelty spelling was kept, although it was Norman Petty who suggested the change back to the usual spelling for future releases. Now you have the change to own a cool repro credited to the right name for the very first time!! Fifty-four years after the legendary piece of wax come out, this is our way of paying homage to the man. Finally, SONNY WEST. Play it loud and enjoy it!! 7´´ Gatefold Sleeve with 45s repro .CD inside.
