Rock'n'Roll, Pop Rock | MP3 320 kbps CBR | 151 min | 350 MB
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.

Before the Beatles ushered in the beat revolution, the British pop scene reverberated to a tidal wave of home-grown instrumental music. However the golden age of the instrumental was destined to wither as quickly as it had bloomed, yet British rock owed much to its wordless past. This excellent 3 disc compilation includes tracks such as "Telstar", "F.B.I." and "Sleepwalk" and aptly plays out with At The Sign Of The Swingin Cymbal by Brian Fahey & his Orchestra, the original 1960 version of the chart rundown tune for BBC Radio s Pick Of The Pops. If you ve got that far, we guarantee you ve enjoyed 60 of the greatest instrumentals British popular music has to offer.

Be honest now: what rock fan hasn't fantasized about one day seeing Alice Cooper and the Who's Roger Daltrey on stage together, belting out the Rolling Stones' "Start Me Up" with backing by Pete Townshend's brother, Ringo Starr's son, and the bombast of a full symphony orchestra? Well, OK, so maybe that peculiar pairing is no one's idea of rock & roll heaven. But that didn't stop the producers of this 90-minute outdoor concert from assembling a wildly disparate cast, ranging from Daltrey, Cooper, and Procol Harum's Gary Brooker to Darlene Love (best known as the voice of the Crystals' classic "He's a Rebel") and lesser lights like singers Alvin Fields and Nikki Lamborn, to raise money for the Let Music Live charity and to celebrate the music of the Beatles, the Stones, the Who, Led Zeppelin, and others.
