CD Reviews

What An Injustice!!
Mark Twain | Kent, United Kingdom | 05/10/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have just read the previous review and could not believe what I was reading. You are entitled to your opinion BUT ......... Ronnie Hawkins and The Hawks produced probably the best Rock n Roll of 1958 and 1959. Great, Wild, Pure, and with Great Sound Quality. Of Course by 1960 he was searching for a new direction, along with most others of the day, because American Hard Rock n Roll was dead by then. The charts were full of "Bobby's" doing Government approved "POP SONG". It took the British Invasion to bring to life a lost American art form. Call it what you like 40 years later, (Rockabilly or anything else) but at the time it was just Plain, Hard, Wild, Rock n Roll, the type we (then) teenagers wanted. But it was not what the Authorities wanted. Ronnie Hawkins and his Hawks were as good and wild as it got.......... Do your self a favour and buy this CD. Sure there are a few tracks that you can live without, but what is good is brilliant. If you call yourself a "Rocker" and don't have this CD, then I don't know how you sleep at night. Thank You Sequal Records of London, England, for releasing this CD of Lost American Music."
