Classic Rockabilly

March 23, 2007 | Music
Due for release on April 6, 2007 on the Proper label is the 4 CD compilation "Classic Rockabilly". Although it is sold using Elvis' image and name, he is only featured twice on the 120 tracks compilation with "Good Rockin' Tonight" and "My Baby Left Me".


Hearing Elvis Presley perform his brand of rockabilly on record influenced a whole host of other artists who would soon emulate him, many are included here. It features 120 classic rockabilly tracks, performed by artists ranging from its leading exponents to the most obscure performers of the genre in all its glory and formats. This set is compiled and annotated by acknowledged expert Adam Komorowski.

Yet another stupid release folks! Who will buy this junk in England? And yet, the British are usually innovative when it comes to releasing creative new packages of CDs etc. But this one is a mishap! Let's try something else BMG UK/London. And Chris & Roger should support this: Let's release Triple Albums on one CD (without country or gospel songs on it) like TTWII plus Now plus Fool; and another one with RonRocks, Good Times and Love Letters and the third one: MBlue, Today and EPBlvd. ALL should carry bonus songs like full 6 min version of D't think twice or Xrated PromLand, Hurt, Only strong survive etc....And if BMG England does not believe in it, let's give the project in hands of BMG in Holland! They do a superb job with this. Ernst and Roger do not enough and obviously don't have any power to do so.....so let's turn it out to the Dutch !

Not a stupid release, actually. The Proper series of boxed sets are first class and with first class sound. I don't see anywhere where this says it has Elvis name on the front!.

Anton, how long are CDs where you live? Three albums on one cd plus bonus tracks??? And I don't think somehow the X-rated versions of the songs you mention are ever going to be released officially. I think you're on a different planet, bud.

LOL. Yeah, actually it's a very interesting release... many obscure unknown songs that Elvis used to listen to. I'm sure I'm gonna like a whole lot of those songs ;)

Everybody is entitled to his or his opinion, but I gotta tell you, Anton you are waaaaaay out there. 3 albums on a CD?? As I recall the original That's The Way It Is runs around 40 minutes. Now and Fool each run around 25 minutes (more or less). That's around 90 minutes anyway you slice it. You can't fit more than 80 minutes on a CD. As for the Rockabilly release, I think it sounds interesting. Does anyone have the tracklisting or Know where this can be purchased?

Anton, do you realize that your continious rambling bores everyone? People stop reading your contributions. In the unexpected condition that you have something useful to say... you'll guess.
