Format: Audio CD
This is just a great album to have on the shelf - and all for just over a pound a disc - what are you waiting for? The recordings sound fine to me and the selection is impeccable. The downside is...this is a budget release so don't expect any fancy booklets or artist info. What you get is three hot discs chock full of the best rock 'n roll music ever!

If you don't know much Rockabilly this is a great place to start as it gives you lots of names to follow up: Buddy Holly (of course), Johnny Burnette (of course), Gene Vincent, Roy Orbison, Carl Perkins, Johnny Cash, Bill Haley, Eddie Cochran, Elvis Presley, Dale Hawkins, Jerry Lee Lewis and the rest but also some others perhaps not so familar: Mac Curtis, Warren Smith, Ronnie Self, Billy Lee Riley, Sonny Burgess, Skeets MacDonald, Charlie Feathers, Webb Pierce, Wanda Jackson and a dozen others.

If you know lots about Rockabilly then this is a great album too as it provides an almost perfect Rockabilly Party Album or very good alternative to that mix tape you always meant to put together!

Although Rockabilly as a genre didn't last too long it was the best, the most exciting music of it's generation, and these discs prove it!

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
As music from the 1950s has now fallen out of copyright, it has become much easier both for record labels to release decent compilations like this, and for collectors to find these old tracks which may not have been available for many years.

This is an excellent collection, including many classic Rockabilly hits from well known singers such as Elvis, Roy Orbison, Eddie Cochran, Bill Haley, Johnny Cash and Gene Vincent, alongside acknowledged classics of the genre, for example, Billy Lee Riley's "Red Hot", Don Woody's "Barking Up The Wrong Tree" and Webb Pierce's "Teenage Boogie".

There are a few tracks which aren't true rockabilly (Marty Robbins and Red Foley for starters!!); and the compilers have possibly fallen into the trap of including too many tracks by the "name" artists, probably to try and sell more copies (the ready availability of these out-of-copyright tracks rather defeats this purpose - if you want Elvis, or the Big O, their tracks are available on many other cheap compilations).

So while it may have been preferable to have a few more rockabilly gems and a few less mainstream hits, this is still a great compilation, and well worth adding to your collection, especially if you're unfamiliar with the genre.

I bought this as a present for a friend who listens to a lot of current artists that produce 1940s and 50s type music. However, she had never listened to original artists. My friend loved the music! On reading the sleeve to see what songs & artists were included (I was a huge rock n roll/rockabilly fan) I promised myself a copy too. A fab purchase, and with 3 CDs enough for long car journeys and london traffic jams...

Good quality reproduction but it doesn't lose that raw rockabilly sound. Lets me go back in time to happy teen evenings spent at The Hop amongst other venues, lovely to listen to.
