Two CD set with 53 tracks. Bill Haley exploded onto the scene in 1954, but the original king of rock & roll had been a character in the Western swing world for nearly a decade. JSP`s elegantly annotated box set, This two CD set chronicles his rise, from the cowboy balladry of Tennessee Border, to his 1951 cover of Jackie Brenston's R&B classic Rocket 88 through to his classic Essex recordings where he started to define his rock 'n' roll style with tracks like Rock The Joint and Crazy Man Crazy.

VARIOUS ARTISTS JSP JSPCD 6201 Virginia Rocks ● CD $23.98
2 CDs, 61 tracks, 142 mins, very highly recommended
Although it may be news to some, Virginia was an early hot-bed of Rock 'n' Roll and when it came to Rockabilly, the great state of Virginia held up the torch higher and longer than most of the other 49. This fantastic collection features a whole mess of great acts from the "Cavalier state," from proto-Rockabilly-Country and Western through Rock 'n' Roll and beyond. The R&R legends like Gene Vincent, Link Wray, Janis Martin, and The Rock A Teens are all here with known and rare tracks as well. You also get hot numbers from less likely sources like Patsy Cline with Stop Look and Listen, and a fiery young Roy Clark with Please Mister Mayor, and Puddin'. Most importantly, though, are probably the great acts that most haven't heard of, with drop dead killer tracks from the likes of The Dazzlers, Robert Williams & The Groovers (the awesome Loud Mufflers) Darnell Miller, The Downbeats, The Hi-Tombs, The Lancers, Carl Tyndale, Gene Criss & The Hep Cats, and many, many, more. You also not only get Link with his Ray Men, but also with his brothers Lucky and Doug Wray on Teenage Cutie. Unlike a lot of JSP sets, this one comes with an outstanding 72 page booklet full of all kinds of rare pictures and lengthy info on the artists and the scenes throughout the state that fostered all of this talent. This is easily one of my favorite collections of the year so far and I know that Rock & Roll/ Rockabilly fans will love it as well and also discover some killer cuts that they never knew about before.
