With American rockers Elvis Presley, Carl Perkins, Eddie Cochran, Gene Vincent and even some R&B acts like Little Richard and Fats Domino gaining popularity in the 1950s, it was obvious that Britain could no longer rely on ageing pop singers to service the young rock 'n' roll audience and the search for home grown talent began. This excellent 2CD set turns the spotlight onto some of the lesser known Rock 'n' Roll acts that surfaced on our shores. Although Tommy Steele can't quite be labelled as unsung, he was the first British teenage star to perform Rock 'n' Roll and scored the first home grown hit with the original song Rock With The Caveman. The journey rocks on with 50 tracks including Terry Dene's cracking Baby She's Gone, Wee Willie Harris' Riot in Cell Block No.9, Dickie Pride's Slippin 'n' Slidin' and Vince Taylor's Brand New Cadillac - perhaps the UK's greatest rock and roll record. This is a remarkable trip down memory lane which will no doubt remind the fans and jukebox junkies of the era's underrated or forgotten gems.
