When rockabilly emerged from the American South in the mid-1950s it was a shot heard ‘round the world, born of a marriage of country & western and the proto-rock of early r&b.

The 100 tracks on this 4 CD essential collection include the crème de la crème of rockabilly classics by artists such as Link Wray, Charlie Feathers, Jerry Lee Lewis and Gene Vincent, as well as more obscure rocking gems which are much sought after by aficionados.

Includes an extensive essay about rockabilly by Max Décharné, author of A Rocket In My Pocket.


Reviews:

’A humdinger of a four disc set chronicling the ’50s musical phenomenon that was rockabilly... (featuring) 100 fantastic tracks (and) a great booklet’ --***** (five stars) Scottish Daily Express

’No quiff is left un-combed on this 4CD box of twangin’ ’50s magic... never flags’ --***** (five stars) Mojo Magazine
