Bill Haley and the Comets were, I think, the best R&R band consistently producing some of the best get up and jive music of the late 50s and early 60s. Almost 60 years on (who said R&R was just a passing phase!) the vibrancy and energy of the music on sides 1, 2, and 3 provides a full taste of why we, as teenagers, got up and danced wherever Bill's music was played. Side 4 is less typical with some tracks having something akin to a Country and Western style about them as well other musical flavours - such as Spanish Twist. But, still very interesting to listen too.
Side 1 ...opening with the instrumental 'Calling all Comets' followed on track 3 by another instrumental 'Rockin little tune' cleary demonstrates the musical quality and skill of the Comets .....virtually impossible to listen to without involuntarily tapping one's foot!
Considering that these recordings are in some cases almost 60 years old the remastering has achieved a superb sound that will not disappoint .....and as for the 'Goofin around' track just get up and dance!
