Product Description

Legendary British rock n roll dynamo Stuart Colman revisits Texas in the latest instalment of his spectacular Sugar series. Along with the recent Fantastic Voyage compilations Texas Tornados and It s Saturday Night!, Snazzy Sugar continues highlighting the Lone Star State s pivotal role in the birth of rock n roll, its 75 incendiary tracks demonstrating how, when the music was in its multi-hued infancy across the US, West Texas was rearing up with the real call of the wild. The eruptions which burst out of Memphis, Cleveland and New York in the fifties are well-documented but, over three CDs, Colman has excelled himself with this astutely-picked and exhaustively annotated selection, showing the crucial role of western swing in rock n roll s development, timeless rebel yell energy, uniquely idiosyncratic personality and a dash of Southern romance. Disc 1 (Right To Rock) gets the vibrant mix of future stars and intriguing obscurities under way with immortal Fender Stratocaster-toting pioneer Buddy Holly s I m Gonna Love You Too and the young Roy Orbison s Ooby Dooby before traversing gems by the likes of Link Davis, Trini Lopez, Waylon Jennings, Sonny Curtis, the Crickets, Lelan Rogers, the Fireballs, the Five Bops, the Click-Clacks and the Leen Teens. The good rocking continues through CD2 (Play it Cool), thrusting forth such names as Chuck Tharp, Sid King, Ray Campi, Link Davis, Mickey Gilley, Buddy Knox, the Tu-Tones, the Champs and Dean Beard with the Crew Cuts. The Cowtown heavy-hitters continue their rampage on Disc 3 (aptly-titled Turn Me Loose), corralling names including Jimmy Dee & the Offbeats, Joe Clay, Sleepy La Beef, Al Urban, Hal Goodson & the Raiders, Teen Kings, Alvis Wayne, Tooter Boatman & the Chaparrals, the String-a-Lings, the Fireballs, Earl Henry and an early Kenny Rogers outing called That Crazy Feeling , before Buddy Holly returns with Well...Alright , winding up this glorious new artefact for the rock n roll hall of fame.

Apart from one or two top draw titles which have been released many times before, the rest included on this cd are simply the dregs of whatever is left out there unrecorded.It comprises many country orientated tunes, many bland recordings without any originality of their own, sounding like many heard before. I'm sorry I purchased this set as it will simply add to the bottom shelf of my cd collection with others of similar ilk never to see the light of day again.

They do say that taste is a matter of taste, but I thought this is the best one so far. Some of the other sets are festooned with old-style country that doesn't really swing, but this set just gets better and better.

Just brilliant, with some real gems and obscurities, seventy five tracks spread over three CDs at a bargain price with great mastering from top to bottom and with some really informative sleeve notes from Stuart Colman detailing the circumstances of each song! What more could you ask, anyone who loves excellent rock'n'roll from West Texas or anywhere for that matter should own this!

i have got all of these comps in the sugar series. This by a mile is the worst. Whats that odd sound i hear on all 3 discs ? oh yes i know, its the very bottom of a barrel being scraped. Only 3 tracks by joe clay and one or two others are any good. These compilations need to get better or just stop
