Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: 200 Rare Highschool Rock Originals - Teenage Bop (Audio CD)
If you are a fan of 50's pop and rockabilly this is a must! it is obscure city
Now I know a bit about this type of music (former RnR DJ) and am owner of 2000+ cds (did have 2000+ LP's and 8000 singles) mostly of this genre, most of these artists are unknown to me, even those that are, many of the tracks are very obscure.
great tracks from Charlie Gracie, Colin Hicks, Johnny Gentle etc. a strange mixture of Uk and mostly US tracks of 1957 to 1960 (think this covers the span)...
if you think Bob Luman type stuff with some 50's pop thrown in that will be the theme, up tempo and very obscure and it's GREAT!
having checked out most of the artists on the interweb many still remain unknown!!!!! (took ages)
a couple of strange novelty records but mostly very good uptempo 50's "pop" type stuff (not in the "popular" sense of the word as there are NO hits here) and rockabilly, throw in a couple of "everly" type duets with some vocal groups, you have it all...
someone spent a long time trawling back catalogues for this stuff turned over a few stones too, thank god they did, for £10 great value.
