Sandy Nelson
Drums Are My Beat 1962 2CD

Sandy Nelson was not merely the biggest, but just about the only major drum star of the Golden Era of Rock 'n' Roll Instrumentals.
This 58 track double-disc set, which anthologises his 1962 releases, is complementary to the previously collection Teen Beat 1959-61.
1962 was a watershed year in Sandy Nelson’s early career, in that he released an astonishing six LPs, four of which (Drums Are My Beat, Drummin’ Up A Storm, Golden Hits and Compelling Percussion) made the US album charts.
He also issued six singles that year, of which five (Drums Are My Beat, The Birth Of The Beat, Drummin’ Up A Storm, All Night Long and And Then There Were Drums) made the US singles chart.
This is as comprehensive a collection of his 1962 recordings as is physically possible to present on a 2-CD set.
