Rock on CD

No early 1950s band swung harder than the Treniers; this disc is a non-stop musical riot! The Treniers were a direct influence on '50s rock 'n' roll pioneers Bill Haley & His Comets, Freddie Bell & the Bellboys, Jimmy Cavallo, and many more! They starred in some of the early rock movies! First cross-licensed compilation that includes all of the Treniers' classic rockers for London, OKeh, Epic, Vik, and Brunswick, as well as Milt Trenier's hottest solo sides. Includes two versions of their biggest seller, Go! Go! Go! - one with small combo and the other with big band. Bill Dahl's extensive liner notes include an in-depth interview with Milt Trenier. Long before anyone ever coined the phrase rock 'n' roll, the Treniers were rocking and rolling. They were also jumping, jiving, and tearing up gin joints and lounges from Vegas to Wildwood. A crazier onstage outfit has yet to be minted; the Treniers entertained inebriated high rollers in Vegas lounges with the same non-stop hijinks they displayed in the groundbreaking rock 'n' roll movies 'The Girl Can't Help It' and 'Don't Knock The Rock. ' Identical twins Claude and Cliff Trenier were the ringleaders, though this family affair soon expanded to encompass younger brother Milt, who tore it up on his own before he joined the act. Supersonic alto saxist Don Hill was a charter member whose stratospheric wails were as integral to the Treniers' attack as Claude and Cliff's infinitely swinging vocals, while pianist/bandleader Gene Gilbeaux provided the glue that kept it all from spinning out of control.
