There have been countless Chuck Berry compilations but never one like Bear Family’s Rock and Roll Music: Any Old Way You Choose It, a mammoth 16-disc box containing his complete recorded works for Chess, Mercury, and Atco. Only the soundtrack to Taylor Hackford’s star-studded 1987 documentary Hail! Hail! Rock ‘n’ Roll is missing and it isn’t missed much, not in the face of this abundance.Read More

Bruce Springsteen’s make-or-break third album represented a sonic leap from his first two, which had been made for modest sums at a suburban studio; Born to Run was cut on a superstar budget, mostly at the Record Plant in New York. Springsteen’s backup band had changed, with his two virtuoso players, keyboardist David Sancious and drummer Vini Lopez, replaced by the professional but less flashy Roy Bittan and Max WeinbergRead More

King Creole was the last movie that Elvis Presley made before he entered the army in the spring of 1958 — it was also his last film in black-and-white, as well as his final effort directed by a serious old-time filmmaker (Michael Curtiz); and, apart from a few isolated, quirky efforts like Flaming Star, Change of Habit, and Charro, this was the last of his serious movies, in which Presley was trying hard, pushing himself as an actor and, really, all through the score, as a musicianRead More

Six CDs containing the complete Capitol and EMI-Columbia recordings by Vincent, from 1956 through 1964. The 151 tracks may seem excessive, but the sound glitters, and since most of the post-1962 material was never issued in the United States, this stuff could be revelatory to serious fans. And the booklet is filled with detailed notes, sessionographies, and great photos.Read More

When rock ‘n’ roll exploded across America in 1956, there was an immediate demand for young white rockers cast in the mould of rock’s great progenitor, Elvis Presley, whose dynamic fusion of hillbilly and R&B had revolutionised post-war music within the space of a few months. Eddie Cochran had Read More

There’s a different feel to 2014’s Rock & Roll Time, the third album Jerry Lee Lewis has made with benefactor and producer Steve Bing. Once again, superstar drummer Jim Keltner co-produces (he sat out 2010’s Mean Old Man), and the pair bring the Killer back where he belongs right at Sun Studios. In case anybody missed the point, Jerry Lee is placed directly in front of the old Sun building itself on the cover of Rock & Roll Time, underscoring a point the music makes perfectly plain: Jerry Lee is once again singing some of that old-time rock & rollRead More

The London record label was founded in 1947 as an offshoot of the Decca Label. two years later it began buying the UK distribution rights to American independent labels such as Imperial, Chess, Dot, Atlantic, Specialty and Sun as well as (much later) the first releases from Motown. Coincidentally, the 45rpm seven-inch single format was first introduced in 1949 by RCA Victor.Read More

Of all the original 50s rock ‘n’ roll stars, none was more flamboyant than Richard Wayne Penniman. Now a game octogenarian still intermittently performing (he headlined a Las Vegas weekender in March 2013), Richard has had a chequered career peppered with retirements and comebacks, fluctuations between God and Mammon and many a misjudged recording; his latter years dogged by a dodgy hip. At his peak he was the most dynamic rock ‘n’ roll extrovert on record and stage, which obscures the fact he was also the most mellifluous vocalist of the pack when he calmed down enough to sing a blues, gospel or soul balladRead More

Many key radio stations across the United States have panicked and changed their formats from rock & roll to “quality music”, causing both listeners and advertisers to drop away fastRead More
