    Gold Star Rockers : Eddie Cochran & Friends (3CD)

    Gold Star Rockers is not just another Eddie Cochran compilation: there are already plenty of those out there, ranging from single disc “Greatest Hits” to exhaustive summaries of his career as a featured musician.
    Instead, Gold Star Rockers is a lavish 3CD Various Artists set rounding up more than 100 tracks by artists associated with that supremely talented musician, whose early death robbed the music world of one of its most multi-faceted exponents.
    This fascinating collection takes its title from the historic Los Angeles studio, where many of the tracks were recorded.
    This set has been compiled to celebrate some fine Rock 'n' Roll recorded by Eddie’s friends; Eddie certainly isn’t featured on all the tracks – some are not recorded at the favoured Gold Star Studios…or even in Los Angeles – but they all feature singers with whom Eddie enjoyed a close personal and professional relationship during the late 1950s.
    He is known to play guitar on many, he is rumoured to play guitar on others, while some selections are included because they are just damned good tracks by the artists he befriended and some are included because they are the commercial results of demos on which he helped out.
    Occasionally his voice will be heard on an early Cochran Brothers track or doo-wopping behind his friend Gene Vincent, and in one or two instances, other artists perform songs that are generally associated with him or are known for backing him or touring with him, but all are relevant to his story.
    And when all is said and done, what you will find is over one hundred Gold Star Rockers with a Cochran connection – take Gene Vincent’s advice and “Git It!”
