It's not only rock'n'roll, but I like it all! Probably, ever since the mid-1950s, music fans have argued long into the night, about which was the first rock'n'roll record. Popularly, it is considered generally to be 'Rock Around the Clock' by Bill Haley and His Comets. This excellent three-CD set includes two different versions of Rock Around the Clock, curiously one credited to two or three writers, while the other version is considered to be 'anonymous'. It must be the old payola roll blues... I set each of the three CDs playing in different rooms around the house on random and shuffle and left them playing for days on end, a worthy testament to this excellent set. It includes tracks going as far back as, believe it or not, 1916 and, right up to the early- and mid-fifties. 80-odd tracks, vying to be the first rock'n'roll record! I don't think it answers the question, 'Which was the first rock'n'roll record?', but it certainly generates a lot of discussion. Rock'n'roll was a fortuitous mix of many different musical styles coming together, and, 50 to 60 years on I don't think we can ever answer the question but it is interesting to discuss it. Here we have blues, jazz, rhythm-and-blues, Western swing and country music, Honky Tonk, Boogie, and even a little bit of Woogie! You could spend hours arguing about the difference between honky tonk, barrel house, and juke joint blues, nearly as long as discussing the different purposes of these mysterious and alluring buildings. I have memories from the late seventies talking about music, with an old man, who could remember being chastised by his mother in the mid-1930s for listening to rhythm music or as she put it '...that rock'n'roll music...' so even the phrase is hard to date. Alan Freed may have popularised it, but I doubt he named it.Read more ›

The material on these cd's is incredible and thanks to the present availability in the public domain ,a bargain price. Of course , in common with most cd booklets, you need A1 vision to read the content.
