Teenage Rock 'n' Roll Party Various Artists (Challenge Records)


Ace Records
Catalogue Id:

A step back into the rock'n'roll past when compilations were compilations, singles were singles and a record collector could roam the plains of Camden Town (I feel a Ted Carroll reference corning on-Ed) certain in the knowledge that take 25 of his or her favourite hit was NOT lurking just around the corner. Seriously folks, "Teenage Rock'n'Roll Party" is that now-rare breed of disc - a personal selection of some great music (Ted Carroll's perhaps? - Ed), meant to be savoured, danced to and enjoyed, rather than subjected to analysis. Rockin' Ted Carroll (see, I was right! - big'Ed) has pop-picked 30 great party records including The Jive Five's These Golden Rings, Larry Williams' frantic rocker Slow Down (an influence on British bands from The Beatles to The Jam), the New York doowop of The Symbols' Crying My Eyes Out, the original undubbed version of Al Ferrier's Let's Go Boppin' Tonight and Al Simmons' Old Folks Boogie. Simmons was drummer with the totally obscure Cats From Fresno who recorded for Johnny Otis's Dig label and Old Folks Boogie is Al's only recorded vocal outing. So roll back the carpet, jump on the dance floor and party on to a selection of the very best blues, rockabilly, doo wop, R&B and swamp pop - all Teenage Rock'n'Roll style.
