5.0 out of 5 stars "Well 'ard"
I do not see how anyone who can call himself a music lover, can only give this collection one star. It is a fine collection of r and r/rockabilly (I don't know where the fine line starts and finishes)and by any criteria, it deserves five stars. Ignore the neighbours, turn up the volume and ROCK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars A true rarity, 16 Nov. 2010
This review is from: Rarest Rockabilly Album In The World Ever! (Audio CD)
Over the past few years, there has been such a glut of rockabilly compilations released that most of the supposed 'rarities' they contain are now in fact any thing but! This 2 CD album, however bucks the trend with many songs that will interest the true collector, notably, those by Dinky Harris and Walter Brown. There are a few on here that have featured on other collections, but on the whole this is a well put together and researched selection with some great sleevenotes giving info on every artist included.
While this will be of interest to the serious collector, it should also be noted that the broad range of songs on here would serve as a great introduction to the genre, highly recommended for all Rockabilly fans!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great compilation, shame about........, 2 Mar. 2011

This review is from: Rarest Rockabilly Album In The World Ever! (Audio CD)
Love this compilation, not always the rarest of rockabilly but it's quality stuff anyway, I'll be boppin' till I'm breathless (not a euphemism) when this is delivered. My only criticism is the cover, Teds and rockabilly are not synonymous, they're rock 'n rollers to be sure, but rockabilly is something different. It's like having a Northern Soul CD illustrated with pictures of Goths or a Rap album with a photo of someone with half a brain on the cover. It's incongruous. (well not quite, but you know what I mean, or do you?)

3.0 out of 5 stars I don't think so, 13 Aug. 2012
This review is from: Rarest Rockabilly Album In The World Ever! (Audio CD)
The title is absurd and loses a star.The other loss is because of the sleeve-photos of Teddy Boys which turn the music into comedy.It ought to have shown labels of some of these singles.
If you use as a yardstick the number of times some of these titles have been anthologised then you begin to realise its hardly even the 10th rarest rockabilly comp.Thus the title would only have made sense if this had been issued in the 90s
You get the impression that by using the name "rockabilly" is because it makes money and is actually short on what has been defined as rockabilly.
Charles Senns for example was from 1962
However anyone new to rockabilly would find this super rare and Chrome Dreams are to be congratulated for making this available

Not the rarest rockabilly album, got 80% of the tracks already. Still to top up your collection no bad.
