CD Reviews

Excellent CD for the price!!

"However, You can get everything on this CD plus 8 more early gems on Varese Sarabande label's "Best of 1951-1954"(vintage varese series). Now, if you love this music and Country Boogie and Rockabilly music , you may want to get this just as a collectible. I had looked for it for a long time not knowing where else to get Haley's early stuff. The 51-54 collection has 3 tunes done when Haley's group was the Saddlemen, including a cover Jackie Brentson's Sun Records smash Rocket 88!!!"
"Rock the Joint!" is better

"Now, this was a complete thrill to have for me back when I first started buying Bill Haley CDs in October 2002, but when I heard about "Rock the Joint!" I thought this CD was extremely skimpy. It doesn't have the classic "Rocket 88." It doesn't have great tunes like "Green Tree Boogie" and "Sundown Boogie." This is very ... Doesn't even have a booklet, really. Sure, the old recordings at the beginning of his career in 1952 and 1953, but I would rather go with "Rock the Joint!" ... This CD includes classics like "Rock the Joint," "Rocking Chair On the Moon," "Fractured," "Crazy Man, Crazy" and "Real Rock Drive," though."
Bill's early recordings, but not all of them.

"These are Bill's recordings from the early 50s before he became immensely popular with "Shake Rattle And Roll" or "Rock Around The Clock". Sadly you don't find all of his great early stuff on this CD, but this is a good starter as the price is really low."
