Product description

Product Description

* 26 original versions of some of the most enduring classics of the 1950s and 1960s.

* These tracks embrace some of the greatest country, soul, pop, rock`n'roll and R&B tunes ever recorded. We may never know why these songs did not become hits first time around, but musical inferiority is certainly not among the reasons why they didn't.

* Some of these originals are well known, others are hardly known at all. Most people with a passion for rock`n'roll will know that Richard Berry wrote and recorded the original `Louie Louie', but hardly anyone will know that the Kingston Trio and Mark James did `Get Together' and `Suspicious Minds' before the Youngbloods and Elvis Presley did.

* Hear how `Rock Around The Clock' sounded three years before Bill Haley and the Comets got to it, or how the Crickets `Fought The Law' almost half a decade before the Bobby Fuller Four and 15 years before the Clash did. Find out where Led Zeppelin acquired the source material for `Whole Lotta Love' and the Animals got `Baby let Me take You Home' from. Marvel at how closely the later hit versions were often modelled on these originals, and wonder how come they weren't hits in their own right.
