Product Notes

2008 collection containing 26 original versions of some of the most enduring classics of the '50s and '60s. These tracks embrace some of the greatest Country, Soul, Pop, Rock 'N' Roll and R&B tunes ever recorded. Some of these originals are well known, others are hardly known at all. Most people with a passion for Rock 'N' Roll will know that Richard Berry wrote and recorded the original 'Louie Louie', but hardly anyone will know that the Kingston Trio and Mark James did 'Get Together' and 'Suspicious Minds' before the Youngbloods and Elvis Presley did. Hear how 'Rock Around the Clock' sounded three years before Bill Haley and the Comets got to it, or how the Crickets 'I Fought the Law' almost half a decade before the Bobby Fuller Four and 15 years before the Clash did. Find out where Led Zeppelin acquired the source material for 'Whole Lotta Love' and the Animals got 'Baby Let Me Take You Home' from. Marvel at how closely the later hit versions were often modeled on these originals, and wonder how come they weren't hits in their own right. Ace Records. 2008.
