Johnny Burnette together with his Rock´n´Roll Trio turned out to be, without pretending it, one of the fundamental foundations of 50’s rockabilly. The reality is that this trio made up by Johnny, Dorsey and Paul did not last much together and their fame is based only on a dozen of tracks recorded in 1956 which became some of the wildest examples of teenage southern rage.
Great beyond those recordings it is true that Johnny Burnette always had rock’n’roll present in his life until his early death in 1964. In this box set we collect 24 good examples of this fact, from his 1956’s wild rockabilly recordings to the maturity of his sound at the beginning of 1960, stepping over country pop and the duets with his brother, Dorsey. A complete tour in rock’n’roll clef through the career of a one-off and unique artist. TEAR IT UP!
