Rockin' and Boppin' CD
Lorrie and Larry Collins - The Collins Kids - were teenage Rockabilly royalty.
They were stars of the prestigious 1950s US TV show ‘Town Hall Party’.
Larry was already a red hot guitarist at the age of 11, famous for playing a twin-necked Mosrite guitar which was nearly as big as him, while elder sister Lorrie handled lead vocals and accompanied him on rhythm guitar.
They recorded prolifically for the Columbia label between 1955 and 1961.
This collection features their best-known songs including The Rockaway Rock, I’m In My Teens, Hop Skip and Jump, Party, Hoy Hoy, Just Because, Mercy, Rock Boppin’ Baby and Whistle Bait.
Then there are collectors’ rarities like Hot Rod, Soda Poppin’ Around, What’cha Gonna Do Now? and Ain’t You Ever?.
Also included as a bonus track is Just Because, a previously unreleased version where Lorrie Collins duet with Ricky Nelson, featured on the Ozzie & Harriett TV show in January 1958.
