I couldn't believe it when my prayers were answered for EMI to release 101 Rock 'N' Roll Hits in their "101" series of CD sets.
I am a huge fan of the Elvis era (and Elvis himself amongst others) and I was chuffed to receive this 4 CD Set as a birthday gift. It contains well known classics such as Jailhouse Rock, Summertime Blues, (We're Gonna) Rock Around The Clock, At The Hop, Whole Lotta Shakin & C'mon Everybody sung by Elvis, Eddie Cochran, Bill Haley & Jerry Lee Lewis etc.
While you have some rarities & obscurities such as Jim Dandy, Do You Wanna Dance, Let The Good Times Roll, Raunchy, Brand New Cadillac, Pretty Little Angel Eyes, Cincinnati Fireball, Just Like Eddie, The Cruel Sea & A Shot of Rhythm & Blues sung by LaVern Baker, Bobby Freeman, Shirley & Lee, Vince Taylor, Curtis Lee, Johnny Burnette, Heinz & Johnny Kidd etc.
And then you have the odd Doo-Wop selection with artists such as Little Anthony & The Imeperials, The Flamingos, The Five Satins, Maurice Williams & The Zodiacs, The Showmen etc.
So you get a mixed bag of stuff on this CD set and i'd recommend this for any Rock 'n' Roll fan, it is a must have!
