CD Reviews

THE START OF ROCK-A-BILLY
Ken Rogers | Easley, SC USA | 03/03/1999
(4 out of 5 stars)

"The one thing this CD from the folks at ACE has is really great quality. Dale Hawkins recorded most of his music under rather primitive conditions. ACE took the old masters and cleaned them up. Dale Hawkins had lots of great ideas in the 50's and paved the way for folks like John Fogerty of CCR. This package has all of his great material but does not have "A House, A Car And A Wedding Ring". For Rock-a-billy fans this one should be on your list."
Great Rock-A-Billy
The Mean Eyed Cat | KNON Dallas, Texas | 02/06/2007
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Dale Hawkins's Rock'n'Roll Tornado is a great cd and an excellent addition to any Rock-A-Billy music fans collection. Every song is good and something you'll want to play over and over.
