Vinyl LP pressing. Eddie Cochran was one of the most iconic figures of the rock 'n' roll era, his mystique and legendary status heightened by his tragic death in a road accident in 1960 when he was only 22. With heartthrob good looks and stylish image, he featured in the movie "The Girl Can't Help It" even before he had a hit record. He came readily to stardom as the rock 'n' roll explosion of the mid-50s reached it's height, his records epitomising the teenage aspirations and angst of the times. This 20 track LP celebrates Cochran's legacy by bringing together all his hits, his most memorable tracks and glories in the young man's tenacious talent. It naturally includes the landmark records C'MonEverybody, Twenty Flight Rock, Summertime Blues, Somethin' Else, Three Steps To Heaven and Jeannie Jeannie Jeannie, alongside many more classics, ending with the incredibly intimate, stripped back rendition of Pink-Pegged Slacks. All in all, it provides an in depth overview of his glittering career and is a must for any rock n roller.
