Duane Eddy is enjoying a late-career resurgence with a Mojo Icon Award, an appearance at the Glastonbury Festival and a critically acclaimed new album. But Duane Eddy has always been a household name on the strength of the eternally enduring records he made for the Jamie label between 1958 and 1961. This collection features 30 of the very best rock 'n' roll tracks adding the best-selling 'Because They're Young' as a bonus ballad, and' Pepe' because it was a huge international hit.
Nothing sounds quite as BIG as Rebel Rouser, Cannonball, Forty Miles Of Bad Road, Peter Gunn, Some Kinda Earthquake, Bonnie Came Back and Shazam! They're all here along with many more. These are the undisputed top-of-the-heap rock'n'roll instrumentals in all their dazzling, reverb-laden, tremolo-fattened glory.
