3.0 out of 5 stars Rock on Eddie! 23 Aug 2008
By Matt182
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this album after purchasing the amazing 2cd 30 track album, `The best of Eddie Cochran'. It is an amazing album and the best collection of Eddie Cochran songs out there. It was well worth the money. So as I realized that I really liked Eddie Cochran, and he is the next best thing to Elvis Presley, I decided to discover more material from this guy. I purchased this album knowing that I already had some of the songs, but luckily the only song that is exactly the same as on The best of is Skinny Jim. I have 3 Cochran collection CD's with the exact same song on it. There must have only been one version of this song, and it was Eddie's first solo release.

There are many good songs on here, and they are as the title suggests, `Rock n roll gems'. I enjoyed this album and it was a good listen. If you want to purchase a first time Eddie Cochran album though, don't buy this. Buy the album I bought or one of his other best of collections first, to hear the best sounding recordings. If you want clean sounding music then this definitely isn't the album for you. Most of the songs on the album are early recordings and are not the same as the finished version. Although it's nice to hear what they originally sounded like before they were polished up to their best. Many of the songs are recordings from 1956-1957. There are 6 instrumental songs on this album. They are diverse and most sound country style. Guybo is a song that later formed the nickname of Eddie's bass player. The other instrumentals are Meet Mr Tweedy, Chicken shot blues; which is an early version of the amazing 'Eddie's blues'. You can actually hear the studio recorder saying `take 1' and `take 2'.

3.0 out of 5 stars Bit of a mixed bag 13 Sep 2011
By Dangerous Dave TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This one used to be a good buy but now it's less so. Let me explain. EMI used to have a single CD best-of set out on Eddie which contained 20 tracks. In 2005 EMI replaced their offering by a two CD 40 tracker best-of (still at a very decent price). The extra tracks to make up the two CD set came, in part, from tracks that make up this album - and they're the better ones on this album (of course!).

So if you have the new (2005 and 2 CD's that is) version of "The Best of Eddie Cochran" then it probably doesn't make a lot of sense to get this one unless you're a completist. On the other hand if you only have the old version of "Best of EC" then this one might be a pretty good buy.

So what is here?

* Plenty of tracks recorded while our man was at Liberty, excluding the more well known ones but including a variety of flip sides, album tracks and unreleased material. It's generally pretty good but it is in this section that the overlap occurs - for six tracks ("Dark Lonely Street", Little Angel", "Pink Peg Slacks", "Milk Cow Blues", "Nervous Breakdown" and "Skinny Jim" - to confuse things further, the last two were on the single CD "Best of"!).

* Six instrumentals recorded at Liberty. The Notes suggest that these were all purely Eddie with overdubs and it sounds as if that's true. They're a bit of a mixture but I like "Guybo", "Jungle Jingle" (a Diddley beat number) and "Nice'n'Easy".

* Four pre-Liberty recordings from the time at Ekko with our hero plus a gent called Hank Garland, with the pair known as the Cochran Brothers. Three of these are decent rockabilly efforts but the fourth falls more in the novelty vein.

3.0 out of 5 stars indifferent collection 28 May 2009
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is an album i originally listened to after borrowing from the local library some years ago, although there are some good tracks there are also some poor sounding recordings, but for a lover of original rock n roll recordings it is great. If you want to listen to more polished tracks it may be better to buy a greatest hits of Eddie Cochran cd. Having said this i had to eventually purchase this album because i could not do without it in my collection.

A collection of instrumentals as well as live, and not so well known tracks from Eddie and Hank Garland. Superb stuff, well worth the money
