DESCRIPTION

                                 50 OF THE MOST OBSCURE SONGS FROM THE GOLDEN AGE OF ROCKABILLY

The earliest known form of what has become Rock music, Rockabilly was around as early as 1951, and throughout that decade was a hugely popular genre. The style waned somewhat during the 1960s, but by the late 70s a revival of epic proportions was in evidence. The style has remained enormously influential ever since, and artists as diverse as Stray Cats, The Cramps, Chris Isaak, Reverend Horton Heat and Brian Setzer’s Big Band have kept the flag flying commercially for what has become a sub-culture all of its own, with a cult-following equal to those of Punk, Ska and Mod.

The ongoing popularity of this enduring style of music has bought with it the customary collector’s scene, and although there remains a wealth of obscure 45s from the 1950s just waiting to be discovered by both the aging fan inspired by the form’s first wave and the alternative young rocker, the vast majority of these records, largely released on tiny American labels, remain enormously hard to locate and, when discoveries are made, hugely expensive to purchase. This collection brings together fifty such Rockabilly gems, many of which have never before been released on CD.
