Eddie Cochran – The Early Years (1956)
Mp3 @ 256 k

Some fascinating early stuff from the wonderful EC!

THE EARLY YEARS contains Eddie Cochran’s early recordings under his own name along with his appearances on tracks by Jerry Capehart, Derry Weaver and as a member of The Cochran Brothers.

THE EARLY YEARS is an entertaining, if not exactly indispensable, collection of Cochran’s pre-stardom material, including some tracks where he works as a sideman for other artists (Cochran was, as many have remarked, among the most studio-oriented of the first generation rockers). In any case, the songs here–recorded in 1956 and ’57–mostly showcase him as a teenage rockabilly guitar prodigy, with a couple of exceptions.

“Guybo” (named after his bass player) is a three-chord instrumental featuring twelve-string guitar, twangy bass, and echoed handclaps. The whole thing sounds like a template for his breakthrough hit “Summertime Blues.” Cochran also does a convincing Elvis on the suspiciously “Heartbreak Hotel”-ish “Dark Lonely Street,” complete with hushed, echoed vocal.

Personnel includes: Eddie Cochran (vocals, guitar); Hank Cochran, Jerry Capehart, Derry Weaver.

2 great Eddie collections for the price of 1!

Cochran was one of the 1950s’ most talented rockers, so it’s pretty hard to go wrong with anything called Eddie Cochran’s Greatest Hits.

Amongst the classics in here are his four most famous compositions–“Twenty Flight Rock” (the song that literally attracted Lennon to McCartney), “Summertime Blues” (which provided hits for both the Who and Blue Cheer), “Somethin’ Else” (the Sex Pistols), and “C’mon Everybody” (ditto)–are here.
