5 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Andrew Rossiter on 14 Feb 2010
Format: Audio CD
Well as the title of this review suggests, I've enjoyed this volume even more than I enjoyed the first. (As of yet I haven't got vol. 2 + 3) I've found it seems to have a slightly more rock 'n' roll feel. The recordings seem to be that little more accomplished with a little bit more RnB in them than the first volume. This, for me, makes it slightly easier to listen to all the way through as there is slightly more variation. Either that or I just prefer the slightly more accomplished sound! Strangely enough even the quality of music (not the recording) sounds better even though there are less big names on here, which may explain why tracks seem superior to the less well known ones on vol 1.

As with the first volume I doubt there are many artists or songs that anybody other than a die hard rockabilly fan will know. But it really does give that sense of hearing "new" music. Also, now that I own two volumes, I'm starting to be able to pick out particular artists like Skeets McDonald, George "Thumper" Jones and Mac Curtis. Also on here though are artists not on volume 1 (though unsure about 2+3) like Larry Donn; whose Honey Bun opens the second disc and the likes of Johnny Cash, Eddie Cochran and Buddy Holly's brilliant songs still don't beat it. Both discs are so good that when you listen to them you forget why you preferred the other disc when you last listened to it.

Just in case you've stumbled across this cd without having seen or heard volumes 1,2 and 3 Rockabilly was a genre of music that grew in the American South and was a early form of Rock 'n' Roll that took more influence from the country "hillbilly" music than the r'n'b or blues music. This means that it is mostly guitar driven music with sometimes country 'n' western sounding voices (especially Janis Martin).

The birth of rock'n'roll. It ain't just good; it's great! (Volume 4) 16 July 2011
By Thomas E. Davis - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
A period of only a few years, beginning around 1954, saw the emergence of a sound that, along with jazz, came to define the 20th century. It was as much an explosion as a revolution. Creativity and cultural change were everywhere as white musicians grafted black jump blues onto country and western music. This 64-track Dutch import captures the zeitgeist perfectly, packed as it is with some of the greatest songs of the era, many of them from Sun Studios in Memphis. Part of a perfectly-mastered five-volume series, the discount two-CD set has a nice mix of classic cuts and rarities. Following is a track listing with artists, among them Carl Perkins, Ricky Nelson, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent, Elvis Presley, Johnny Burnette, Buddy Holly, and many more fantastic founders, in addition to country legends who knew how to rock like Johnny Cash, George Jones, and Wanda Jackson. Call it rockabilly, call it rock 'n' roll, call it rock, call it anything you like -- only call it great!
