Editorial Reviews

Bill's 1960 debut album for Warner Bros. might be the first "oldies" album ever cut by an established rock 'n' roll act, and it was a honey, with ripsnortin' versions of Blue Suede Shoes; Kansas City; Shake Rattle & Roll; Stagger Lee; My Special Angel , and more.

4.0 out of 5 stars 1960 Warner Bros stereo release of 50s hits December 17, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Purists may not like this because this cd contains covers of 50s hits including Haley's own. On the plus side, the album is in stereo and includes Comets Billy Williamson, Johnny Grande, Rudy Pompilli, Ralph Jones, Franny Beecher, Al Rappa and Haley. Danny Cedrone played the instrument guitar break on the original "Rock Around The Clock" (dying a few days later). This time it's Franny Beecher who had played with the Comets off and on. Beecher had also played with Benny Goodman before the Comets.

The sound of the covers by other artists is not up to the originals, still in listening to the songs one could easily argue that had Haley's versions been first, they would have been the hits.

Ballads are tackled here with mixed results. "Love Letters In The Sand" is a favorite of mine of all the versions I've heard and "My Special Angel" is pretty good.

This is not the place to start for a Haley/Comets compilation, but for his fans, it's a fine album with Bill Haley & his Comets.

5.0 out of 5 stars bill haley and the comets. April 18, 2013
By syd2052
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Although this is not an original haley album it has some incredible songs on it. On this album the liner notes quote haley as to who his influences were and there songs he likes best. His recording of" Whole lot a shaking going on" is incredible with the best guitar solo I have heard in a long time. That guitar player whose name escapes me at the moment is one of the greatest guitarist i hsve ever heard. This album is a must just for the joy of hearing the group playing what they really love.
