Another nice 2 CD set from One Day Music in the Essential Rockabilly series. Contains the inevitable couple of tracks by Ricky Nelson but also some nice tracks by Bob Luman including his version of "Red Cadillac and a black moustache" also a couple of nice tracks from Laura Lee Perkins. Worth a listen.
I for one am very excited about the new releases that One Day Music are producing. This 2 cd album includes all the major Imperial records rockabilly tracks and I've noticed there is also a Decca compilation available too which will no doubt be just as good. Collectors will love this as there are some Billy gems that are not included on other compilations. The artists featured are Bob Luman, The Strikes, Laura Lee Perkins, Weldon Rogers, Billy Eldridge amongst others. In spite of this being a brand new compilation, the artwork which is based on the original imperial covers and the remastering (which greatly improves the sound from the vinyl I've got) will almost make you feel as if it's the 50s again and you're buying these recordings for the first time. A great piece of nostalgia and naturally great VALUE. 5 stars.
