Format: Audio CD
A highly recommended collection of obscure and not-so-obscure US Rock n Roll and Rockabilly from the 50's which really showcases the wild, raw and downright raucous music coming out of small backwater studios that suddenly got the nations moral guardians reaching for the valium...

It was an incredibly fertile period for music. A whole generation disillusioned with the Big Band ballads of their parents, but infused with spirit of black RnB, slicked back their hair, picked up guitars and began to howl at the moon...Tens of thousands of fantastic Rock n Roll records were released between the years of '56 and '59, and as such a single CD can only ever be a scratch at the surface. But it's a mighty fine scratch at that. Reaching over the legendary indie labels (Billy Lee Riley and Jack Earls at Sun, Al Ferrier at Starday) to some real obscurities (Curley Jim anyone?), right through to those plouging their own furrow on the majors (Carl Perkins and Ronnie Self at Columbia).

Highlights? - `Lonesome Baby Blues' by Danny Ray is a must for any Rockabilly collector. The small number of recordings made by Pat Cupp in 1956 have been long been legendary in Rock n Roll circles. The selection here of `That Girl of Mine' demonstrates just why.

A great starter CD for those wanting an entry point into what can, admittedly, be an overwhelming selection of reissues on the market; there is also enough here from off the beaten track to interest more seasoned fans. As usual, Ace Records bring you their highest standards of sound quality, taken from the best available original sources.

The records on show here may not have sold many copies (or any copies in some cases), but what they lacked in commercial success, they more than make up with sheer raw energy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ace does it again 29 Dec. 2007

An excellent selection of mainstream rockabilly. Lots of cuts not available elsewhere, and not many repeats of easily available cuts.
