Rockin' At Hollywood & Vine CD

A Decade Of Rockin' Tracks From The Capitol Records Tower, 1953-1962!
27 tracks of rockabilly and rock ‘n’ roll from the Capitol Records vaults covering the decade that witnessed the birth and high watermark of the music which has excited and influenced musicians and record buyers ever since.
From Merrill Moore’s classic House of Blue Lights from 1953 to Jack Scott and The Cadillacs in the early sixties, this collection traces Capitol’s much underrated rockabilly and rock 'n' roll offerings.
Listen to the best the label had to offer by Ella Mae Morse, The Jodimars, Gene Vincent, Tommy Sands, Johnny Otis, Bob Luman, Faron Young, Wanda Jackson and Ivory Joe Hunter and catch up again with Sam Butera & The Witnesses' Bim Bam.
Several tracks were never released as singles in Britain back in the day and others are making their first appearance on CD here.
The CD comes with a six page booklet that includes notes on every track in the collection along with label scans and other visuals.
