Dave Appell and the Applejacks
Mexican Hat Rock CD


A Philadelphia-born guitarist whose career as a professional musician stretched back to the late 1930s, Dave Appell carved out an unlikely career in Rock‘n’Roll in the 1950s.
His name remains synonymous with the Cameo-Parkway group of labels, for whom he wrote, arranged and produced countless hit records for other artists.
However, several of his own 45s, on which he was billed in various guises of The Applejacks, enjoyed success in their own right.
This mammoth 33 track collection of original recordings presents the very best of Dave Appell’s own releases between 1954-1962 and includes all his significant hits, most notably the million-selling Mexican Hat Rock and its follow-ups, Rocka-Conga and Bunny Hop.
Many of the tracks here are virtually impossible to find elsewhere on CD.
