1-CD-Album DigiPac with 48-page booklet, 34 tracks, playing time: 77:17 minutes.
Second best-selling artist of the 1950s...Second only to Elvis!
A unique collection of his rock 'n' roll songs! Includes rarities and obscurities!
The latest volume in the Bear Family 'Rocks' series is a collection of surprisingly fine rock'n'roll by Pat Boone. Much criticised and unfairly maligned by rock'n'roll 'authorities' over the years, Pat Boone's rock'n'roll catalogue was supremely popular in the U.S., the U.K., Germany and the rest of the world at the height of the rock 'n' roll era! In 1955 and '56, Pat Boone visited the charts on both sides of the Atlantic regularly with a treasure trove of rockin' titles. His critics shout 'But they were nearly all cover versions!' Indeed they were, but they were very well sung, very well recorded, AND they were extremely successful!
This new compilation features 34 Pat Boone recordings from the period 1955 through to 1962. Here are classic covers and revivals of Fats Domino's Ain't That A Shame, I'm In Love Again and The Fat Man, Little Richard's Long Tall Sally and Tutti Frutti, Big Joe's Honey Hush, Tennessee Ernie's Shotgun Boogie, and Red Foley's Chattanooga Shoe Shine Boy.
Listen and enjoy once again the rockin' Pat Boone, the artist who was second only to Elvis Presley in the charts of the Fifties, the decade when rock 'n' roll ruled the world!
The set is rounded off by a generously full booklet featuring period photographs and detailed in-person recollections from the man himself!
