Eddie Cochran was truly Somethin' Else. He had the look. He had the talent. He had the attitude. He played guitar--really played guitar. He produced his own records. He wrote his own songs. And he died too soon, leaving the tantalizing promise of what might have been. Eddie Cochran was no prefabricated teen idol. He controlled his music in a way that few early rock 'n' rollers could or did. He lived in the studio and explored its potential, and, as rock 'n' roll changed, he changed with it. His death in 1960 was a tragic loss.
This is the most comprehensive Eddie Cochran compilation ever assembled!
