The Ballads Of Eddie Cochran CD
This is the first collection of its kind - gathering all of Rock 'n' Roll legend Eddie Cochran's slower songs onto one album.
These moody, sometimes Elvis-styled ballads
are perfect for any lonesome greaser's cruising soundtrack.
There are ballads from Eddie's early Cochran Brothers era, (My Love To Remember, Dark Lonely Street, Half Loved), along with his first Liberty Records single Sittin' In The Balcony, which became a Top Twenty hit in the
You'll hear the often overlooked ballads from his sole Liberty Records album Singin' To My Baby as well as all the great ones from his later career
such as Teresa, Lonely, Hallelujah I Love Her So and I Remember.
Then, of course, there are ballads penned by Eddie's
girlfriend, the talented songwriter Sharon Sheeley: Lonely, Love Again, Think Of Me and Cherished Memories.
Also included here are some of the last tracks Eddie ever laid down, that eerily foreshadowed his own tragic death - Three Stars (a tribute to Buddy Holly,
Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper) and his posthumous #1 UK hit Three Steps To Heaven with backing from the Crickets.
A musthave collection for Cochran fans!
