By Victor HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Being a teen idol rockabilly artist in the late fifties seems to have been a dangerous profession, as many of the best known names died young (Buddy Holly, Gene Vincent and of course Cochran). Luckily they all left plenty of recorded material behind them.

Cochran's work was pretty classic, and many of his songs have really stood the test of time. Summertime Blues, which struck such a chord with the angst of the teenage market of the late fifties, has dated a little, but tracks such as `Three Steps to Heaven', `C'mmon Everybody' and `20 flight rock' still work well today, 50 years after they were recorded.

Cochran's music is deceptive, it sounds simple to today's ears, but was groundbreaking at the time. As well as developing the relatively new rockabilly and rock'n'roll styles, he was an innovator in recording technique, pioneering the art of multilayered tracks and studio tricks that would so influence people like the Beatles. The genius of it is that you don't notice the use of fancy technique, it all sounds perfectly natural. The end result is track after track of truly classic rock'n'roll, an essential addition to any music collection. This two disc collection is an excellent way of getting all of his essential recordings in one place, and being a two discs it has room for a few lesser known gems that don't often find their way on to single disc compilations. An excellent purchase.

4.0 out of 5 stars Good value for money 24 Jun 2011
Format:MP3 Download|Verified Purchase
This is a good value for money collection from one of the late 50's rockers. In my opinion Cochran did not get the credit he deserved for some of pop music's all time greats such as 'Summertime Blues 'and 'Come on Everbody'.The sound of the album is good but noticeable ommissions are the classics 'Something Else' and 'Three Steps To Heaven'. Some of the material is weak because Cochran does not have an extensive catalogue of songs having died so young. However, there is plenty here to interest even the most casual fan.

songs on the back cover do not match whats on the 2 cds. Summertime blues song not on the disc at all!. Some songs on disc 2 not even noted on the cover and others did not match the order on the back cover.
Disappointed as my fav song is summertime blues. Had no choice but to return it to amazon.
