Year 1957 on CD

Vinyl 2-LP 10' w/ gatefold sleeve: BAF214005'Eddie Cochran was a teen idol gifted with photogenic good looks and an overabundance of talent! He breathed life into 'Tin Pan Alley' copywriters, composed finger on the pulse songs, he was the consummate performer, an innovative guitarist and entertainer whose recordings have stood the test of time'. Bear Family in the year 2018 make available two projects based upon Eddie Cochran's 1957 sessions for Liberty Records, a compact disc (BCD17554) and for vinyl junkies a double 10' 110 gram vinyl complete with a lavishly decorated gatefold sleeve album (BAF214005). During Eddie's short life only one album was released 'Singing To My Baby', and this collection contains these eighteen songs with a slight variation. The album has been reprogrammed to enhance the listening experience, and two songs differ to those on the original album; version two of hot rockers Completely Sweet and Twenty Flight Rock are substituted, added to the running order is an undubbed version of the jiving Ah, Pretty Girl (take 19) which is a welcome inclusion, and a blistering live version of Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On from the 'Ampol Radio Show'which Eddie never commercially recorded. Bear Family offer the best sound you will hear, and the high quality gatefold sleeve is annotated by Bill Dahl, including a full 1957 session discography. A vast variety of stunning photographs of Eddie in the studio surrounded by girls as he records bring an image to life of poise, and should a criteria for cool be required then surely it was Edward Ray Cochran!Much has been written about the music legacy of Eddie Cochran and Bear Family invite you to sit in a comfortable chair, turn up your hi-fi, listen and absorb the music recorded in 1957 by Eddie Cochran. - Mark Armstrong, March 2018
