Product Description

Product Description

At the beginning of April 1960 Liberty Records released the second Eddie Cochran album, 12 Of His Biggest Hits. Less than two weeks after release, Eddie was killed in a road crash whilst on his UK tour, prompting the immediate recall of the album. Less than a month later, the album was issued with the same catalogue number but with a new title and cover as The Eddie Cochran Memorial Album. Eight of the tracks were issued as singles, including the chart topper three Steps To Heaven. For this edition, we have added a further two bonus tracks.

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 collection was originally a collection of 12 tracks released as '12 of his biggest hits' just before Cochran's death. Following his demise it was repackaged and rereleased as `The Memorial Album'. As such it contains his smash hit singles of the time and is an interesting single disc collection of his best work. However, a single disc cannot do the man justice, and I would recommend The Best Of Eddie Cochran or The Eddie Cochran Story as more comprehensive and better value compilations.
