Eddie Cochran needs no introduction to rock 'n' roll fans - Eddie Cochran was one of the original architects of rock 'n' roll, and he has been reissued extensively since his tragic death in April 1960. This compilation, however, is the first to compile all of Eddie Cochran's solo 'rockin' tracks in one place - without the usual mishmash of hillbilly tunes, instrumentals, and ballads. Quite simply, this CD rocks from start to finish!
From Eddie Cochran's first rock 'n' roll solo recordings in early 1956 to his last recording session in January 1960, you'll hear such treasures as the original, undubbed versions of Skinny Jim, Twenty Flight Rock, Blue Suede Shoes, and Long Tall Sally. This compilation also includes all of the rocking tracks from Eddie Cochran's 1957 LP Album 'Singin' To My Baby' such as the less familiar Completely Sweet and
Stockings And Shoes.The pounding hits from Summertime Blues and C'mon Everybody to Somethin' Else are all here too. Of course you will hear posthumously released classics such as Nervous Breakdown,
Let'sGet Together, My Way, Teenage Heaven and Ah, Pretty Girl which is the rarer version with Eddie Cochran providing the guitar overdub. The closing number is the classic Cut Across Shorty, heard here at its original speed instead of the oft heard released speeded up recording.
All in all even if you've heard these tracks before, this compilation is worth having to blast at your next backyard party. And if this is your introduction to the great music of Eddie Cochran, prepare to have your mind blown - Eddie Cochran rocks!
