EDDIE COCHRAN Bear Family DVD 20002 At Town Hall Party ● CD $29.98
DVD Black & white, 8 songs, 30 mins, highly recommended Thanks to companies like Bear Family we are now able to hear some more great and long forgotton moments in rock 'n roll history. This set features rock 'n' roll pioneer Eddie Cochran live on the legendary Southern California based TV show "Town Hall Party" in February 1959. Best known as an outlet for country performers the show, on the air from 1953 and 1960, also featured many great rock 'n' roll and rockabilly performers. Fortunately kinescopes of a number of the original shows are preserved at the Country Music Foundation which is the source of these priceless recording. Eddie is accompanied by the excellent Dick D'Agostin & The Swingers. He does eight songs including his most recent hit C'Mon Everybody (twice!), Summertime Blues and several covers including great versions of Fats Domino's Don't Blame It On Me and Chuck Berry's School Days both of which he had not recorded elsewhere. Lots of great singing and guitar playing from Eddie. There is also and interesting interview of Eddie by Johnny Bond which is several cuts above most interviews of rock 'n roll performers. (FS)

DVD 14 tracks, black & white, highly recommended Gene is featured on three shows - from October, 1958 with The Bluecaps and from July and November, 1959 with Town Hall Party musicians. The first show includes the expected Be-Bop-A-Lula plus High Blood Pressure/ Dance To The Bop and others including two not recorded elsewhere - Hank Williams' You Win Again and Jerry Butler & The Impressions' For Your Precious Love and Gene does a splendid job on them reminding us what a superb and versatile singer he was. The Bluecaps are also in great form with some hot guitar from Johnny Meeks.

FREDDY FENDER Arhoolie 9038 Rock 'n Roll ● CD $9.98
12 tracks, 29 min, recommended Before he settled on being Freddy Fender, Baldemar Huerta tried a few names including Eddie Medina. This LP of Spanish-language rock 'n' roll was done as Eddie con Los Shades, as he was still under contract to Falcon under his real name. This reissues Ideal 109 from '61 with original artwork (that's a silhouette of Archie & Veronica dancing!) These tunes are all listed as originals (though there's a few "familiar" sounding tunes - (Desde Que Consoco = Since I Met You Baby) & includes two early hits, Acapulco Rock & Que Mala. (GM)

 
FREDDY FENDER Arhoolie 9039 Interpreta El Rock! ● CD $9.98
12 tracks, 25 min, recommended Long before there was Rock En Espaniol, there was Freddy Fender, cutting the 1st Spanish language rock 'n' roll. This is a reissue of Ideal 136 with a dozen rockers done for Ideal Records approx '61. Includes Si Si Rider/ Corina-Corina, as well as versions of What'd I Say (Vamos A Bailar)/ Slippin' & Slidin' (El Borracho)/ You Better Move On (Tuve Un Amor)/ I Know (Ya No)/ Rip It Up (Bailindo El Rock & Roll), even an instrumental (Rock No. 5).
