Label: Just About As Good As It Gets | Rel: 2009

Volume 3 in the highly acclaimed “Just about as good as it gets!” series. Includes early Cliff Richards and Shadows (The Drifters) recordings. British rock ‘n’ roll still has some harsh critics, despite the huge improvement in sound mastering and the discovery of so many genuine gems included on this compilation. Yet, on the other side, interest continues to grow in this hybrid of the original. Rock ‘n’ roll and Jive clubs now often pulsate to the sounds of the Southlanders, Ray Ellington, Tony Crombie and Wee Willie Harris and many others, bringing home to so many that quite a large chunk of those 50’s British rockers were really good. So enjoy some of the best one more time.

When rock 'n' roll hit the stores of Britain with Bill Haley, Elvis, Gene, Fats & Little Richard, the backlash from the British music press was by way of incredible condescension towards the music. The strange thing about the attitude of those journalists is that rock 'n' roll had existed in Britain before 1956 and the coming of Presley, albeit in a slightly more relaxed form. This fascinating collection sets out to show something of what was going on in Britain between 1954 and 1957.

This double-CD set lives up to its title, at least as a representative compilation of the period it covers – no vinyl compilation ever aspired to offer anything like the 64 tracks presented here, all dug out of the EMI vaults. Conceptually this is a killer collection, representing early dawning years of British rock, when acts like Vince Taylor & the Playboys, jazz trombonist Don Lang, and be-bop drummer Tony Crombie and his group the Rockets all competed for the public's attention, and the book was still being written on how to make (or succeed in) Rock & Roll.
