Rock-A-Billy Record Company

Willie Lewis originally formed the Denver-based Rock-A-Billy Record Company to release a possible one-off 45 by his homemade rockabilly outfit, Willie & The String Poppers.

Since then, Rock-A-Billy Record Company has become a world-famous, highly-collectable record label that has released many 7″ 45s, 10″ LPs & 12″ LP records in a wide variety of colors!


The Spuddnicks

The Rock-A-Billy Record Company has not only released Willie Lewis‘ recordings under names like The String Poppers, Billy & The Bop Cats, King Cat & The Pharoahs, Delmer Spudd & The Spuddnicks, Willie & The Original Stablemen, The Bop-A-Whiles and Willie & The Rhythm Razors, but the label has also released records by rockabilly heavy hitters like High Noon, Go Cat Go, Ronnie Dawson, Carl Sonny Leyland and many, many others. The best rockabilly bands of the day recorded for Denver’s Rock-A-Billy Records.

There are still great Denver Rock-A-Billy Record Company bands playing and releasing records today, like the The Redline RocketsJonny Barber, The Bop-A-Whiles and Willie & The Rhythm Razors.

Great site. Was wondering though what years all the records were released? Thanks

Thanks! Rock-A-Billy Record Company recordings were timeless. We won’t be putting dates, listing band members and what they play on each recording until much later. It’s a lot of work and was best compiled in the book on Rock-A-Billy Record Company put out about 10 or 15 years ago by Sven Bergman (http://www.rockabillywillie.com/willie-the-stablemen/)

Sven bergmann took out in 1994 a fanzine of 75 pages ” Rockin with Willie ” which describes every record of the label (musician, quantity, color and more…) it was printed in 365 copies but unfortunately is written in German.

Yes, we will be posting that and many other foreign language reviews on their own “tabs” very soon
