Dancin' To The Jailhouse Rock!,
By A Customer
This review is from: Jailhouse Rock (Audio CD)Jailhouse Rock is the definitive rock n roll movie, and at last 40 years later an album is finally released.
The song Jailhouse Rock was groundbreaking in its rawness and really took rock n roll to new places.
The film was released in 1957, and the EP Jailhouse Rock was a massive seller; almost 2 million copies sold in America alone, this was an unpresidented amount as it sat atop the EP chart for 28 weeks.
The single Jailhouse Rock sold close to 3 million in America, was #1 on Billboard for 6 weeks whilst also topping the country and r&b charts.
In Britain Jailhouse Rock was the first single ever to go straight to #1, in fact Elvis had the first 2 songs ever to debut at #1 in Britain, he done it again with Its Now Or Never in 1960.
Without promotion this CD has reached platinum statues in America, its a fantastic CD, buy this and the movie
