Boppin By the Bayou / Various [Import]
Louisiana’s French heritage was a big factor in giving the rock’n’roll music that developed there its own flavor. Here are 28 tracks culled from the cream of the ’50s Louisiana labels that originated in the wake of Elvis Presley’s success: two versions of Tag Along by Tommy Todd and Rocket Morgan; Wild Man Rock by Hunter Watts & His Southern Pals; Keep Your Hands Off of It by Lawrence Walker; Kansas City by Warren Storm, and more, including 9 previously unreleased tracks from the Jay D Miller and Goldband labels. Compiled by researcher Ian Saddler, who also wrote the notes! Ace Records.
