Various - Unsung Heroes of British Rock and Roll 2CD (CD)€15,00
With Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent and even some R&B acts like Little Richard and Fats Domino gaining popularity it was obvious that Britain could no longer rely on ageing pop singers to service the rock and roll audience and the search for home grown talent began.
This excellent 2CD set from Jasmine turns the spotlight onto some of the lesser known rock and roll acts that surfaced on our shores. Although Tommy Steele can’t quite be labelled as unsung, he was the first teenage star to perform rock and roll and scored the first home grown hit with the original song ’Rock With The Caveman’. The journey rocks on with, Terry Dene’s cracking ’Baby She’s Gone’, Wee Willie Harris’s ’Riot in Cell Block No 9’, Dickie Pride’s ’Slippin N Slidin’ and Vince Taylor’s ’Brand New Cadillac’ which is a candidate for the UK’s greatest rock and roll record.
This is a remarkable trip down memory lane which will no doubt remind the fans and jukebox junkies of the era of some underrated or forgotten gems that would’ve had you twitching and gyrating with a flip of your long gone quiffs.
