ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
There are some names you never forget. Names like Elvis Presley, Duane Allman, Ronnie Van Zandt...Good Southern names for self-styled boys that made some of rock-n-roll’s great wild records. Such a name and such a man is Travis Wammack.

Born in Walnut, Mississippi, he began his professional music career when he wrote and recorded his first record at the tender age of eleven, and also became the youngest member ever voted into the musicians union. After moving to Memphis, Tennesse, the young guitarist made his mark on the music world at the age of sixteen with his 1963 number one hit “Scratchy”.. By 1969, Wammack’s skills landed him in Muscle Shoals, Alabama where he teamed with legendary producer Rick Hall at Hall’s FAME Records. Travis’ guitar licks can be heard on hit records recorded by artists such as Aretha Franklin, Wilson Pickett, Little Richard, Mac Davis, Clarence Carter, the Osmond Brothers, Bobbie Gentry, Candi Staton, Delbert McClinton, Liza Minnelli, Narvel Felts and many more. Wammack’s solo artist career (produced by Hall) also sky rocketed with the release of albums in 1971 and 1975. He traveled the world as Little Richard’s band leader from 1984 until 1995, performing on several nationally syndicated television programs as well as President Bill Clinton’s inauguration party. Wammack became known as the “fastest guitar player in the South”, where he was described by Rolling Stone’s Greg Shaw as “the fastest guitar player I have ever heard in my life, and not just fast but good. Brilliant, even. His stage show is flamboyant and exciting.” In 1998, Wammack released his Still Rockin’ CD. It contains a collection of rock and soul classics from the 1960's and ‘70's. In 2000, his “Snake, Rattle & Roll in Muscle Shoals” CD was released. This release contains a collection of Travis’ best original material and is sure to rock you with a touch of soul. In 2002 Wammack released his latest live CD “Rock-N-Roll Party, which showcases everything from his soul vocals on ‘Dreams To Remember’, his dazzling guitar work and voice-box on ‘Rocky Mountain Way’, to the swampy slide work on his original ‘Rock-N-Roll Shoes’. Travis now works with Muscle Shoals Music Marketing, and has added “Producer” to his already impressive resume. He is a member of the ‘Memphis Music Hall of Fame’, and in 1999 Wammack received the Professional Musician Award from the Alabama Music Hall of Fame. In 2005 he was inducted into The Southern Legends Entertainment And Performing Arts Hall Of Fame. In May 2006, Gibson Guitars presented Travis with a new Gibson ES-335 guitar as part of their documentary honoring legendary Gibson ES series players.
