VA - The Grill Can't Help It (A Summer Smorgasbord Of 50 Rock 'n' Roll Treats) [2011]

 

50's ROCK 'N' ROLL

VA - The Grill Can't Help It (A Summer Smorgasbord Of 50 Rock 'n' Roll Treats) [2011]

Another solid collection of Summer themed songs from the Fantastic Voyage label. The CD includes Rock n Roll, Rhythm and Blues, Blues, Honkytonk and Pop. From the years, 1951 (the excellent 'It Aint The Meat' by the Swallows) to 1960 (Dudley's(H.B Barnum) novelty answer to Marty Robbins 'El Paso', El Pizza).  A good solid collection of fairly obscure tracks from some well known recording artists of the time, plus some not so well known.
