Does anyone know of any good (remastered) 50s rock and roll CD compilations or collections. I don’t love each artist enough to go track down their CDs besides Buddy Holly which I’ve done and maybe Elvis?
Tony Iommi's Auntie
Cliff Gallup with Gene Vincent.
Glen was the 60' s.
Don't get me started on the blues...
Thanks for posting this about Link Ray. This finally clears up where this song comes from! I’ve had the pleasure of working with The Kingsmen (Louie Louie fame) a bunch of times. Their last song (or encore) was always Rumble. It was my favorite song of the night. Those guys KILLED that song. Live, loud and 3 guitars doing it was/is unbelievable. It’s featured as their last song on their 1995 The Kingsmen Plugged CD (self produced). I never knew what artist did the song originally. Hearing the original version is pretty uh..raw..to say the least but The Kingsmen really polished it into a diamond.
And a note, The Kingsmen were probably the best bunch of old school guys I’ve ever had a chance to work for, really fun time.
Peter Gunn by Duane Eddie was the first 7" 45rpm that I purchased, I used to play it on a wind up player.
Jimmy likes it, too.....as John Fogerty would say "Toyn it up." )
A medley of Eddies tunes.
The tune that...IMO...changed everything. Page seems to think so too.
Link Wray and the ray men "Rumble" is an instrumental by American group Link Wray & His Ray Men. Released in the United States on March 31, 1958, as a single (with "The Swag" as a B-side), "Rumble" utilized the techniques of distortion and feedback, then largely unexplored in rock and roll. The single is the only instrumental ever banned from radio in the United States. It is also one of the first tunes to use the power chord, the "major modus operandi of the modern rock guitarist".
The very best was Link Wray. You also had Carl Perkins, Gene Vincent, Duane Eddy, and that doesn’t begin to cover Elmore James, Muddy, Freddie King, etc....
Another wow moment! Thanks for sharing that, I have never heard that before...had to look that one up and get all the particulars. I read that New York and Boston were the ones that banned it, which of course just made people buy it more .
I did not know it was banned in the U.S. I was going to High School in N. Vancouver B.C. at the time. Loved this record as I listened to it on my little Zenith transistor radio (collar up, radio held next to my ear).
Can someone tell me what the first song is in that video?
Question was in THE 50s... not in THEIR 50s
