Eddie Cochran: My Way (LP, 180g Vinyl, Ltd.)

(Vinyl Lovers) 16 tracks

A raw and exciting rocker with a cocky, rebellious image, Eddie Cochran was very different from the polished and packaged idols being heavily marketed to American teenagers in the years between the rise of Elvis Presley and the arrival of The Beatles. And while he may have faded from popular memory in the years since his tragic and early death. his biggest hits left an indelible mark on rock & roll.

More than 57 years after the tragic car crash that killed him. Eddie Cochran remains one of rock & roll's most lamented what ifs. A trailblazing guitarist, gifted vocalist, hit-making composer and arranger, and budding whiz-kid producer, he quickly ascended from Midwestern obscurity in the late `50s to become one of nascent genre's leading lights. He penned or recorded many of the most recognized songs in rock history-'Summertime Blues.' 'Nervous Breakdown,' 'Somethin' Else,' 'C'mon Everybody,' 'Twenty Flight Rock,' 'Sittin* in the Balcony'-songs whose distinctive sound and defiant, often wryly humorous lyrics have been eagerly digested. analyzed. and lovingly reinterpreted by generations of rockers who followed him, including The Beatles, The Sex Pistols, The Who. and U2, to name a few.

Cochran was on a triumphant concert tour of Britain in the spring of 1960-a tour that had been extended 10 weeks beyond its scheduled run due to intense demand for tickets. In America, a tamer brand of pop was in fashion, exemplified by the likes of Frankie Avalon, Paul Anka and Bobby Darin. In England, however, harder-edged rhythm-and-blues artists and rock-and-rollers like Eddie Cochran and his tour-mate Gene Vincent (of 'Be Bop a Lula' fame) were far more popular. Theirs was the kind of music that the future members of the British Invasion were listening to in the late '50s and early '60s. It was 'Be Bop a Lula.' in fact, that John Lennon was playing at the 1957 garden party where he first met Paul McCartney, and it was Cochran's 'Twenty Flight Rock' that Paul taught John to play that same afternoon, shortly after being invited to jr)in Lennon's Quarrymen. At least one Beatle, George Harrison, saw Eddie Cochran in Liverpool during his final tour, and both his guitar-playing and his stage persona made a strong impression. 'He was standing at the microphone and as he started to talk he put his two hands through his hair, pushing it back,' Harrison later recalled. 'And a girl. one lone voice, screamed out, 'Oh, Eddie!' and he coolly murmured into the mike, Hi honey: I thought, 'Yes! That's it-rock and roll!'

Gene Vincent was traveling alongside Eddie Cochran in the cab to London after what would prove to be Cochran's final performance. Tour manager Patrick Thompkins and Eddie's fiancee. songwriter Sharon Seeley were also in the Ford Consul that was later estimated to have been traveling in excess of 60 mph through a dark and winding section of the two-lane A4 in the village of Chippenharn. Gene Vincent would break a leg and walk with a limp for the rest of his life, but beyond that, the only serious injuries among the passengers were Eddie Cochran's. Having been thrown from the vehicle when it smashed into a light post, Cochran sustained a serious head injury. He died at a hospital in Bath in the early hours of April 17, 1960.
Though his best-known tracks were released during his lifetime, much of Cochran's work appeared after his death. Such is the case with My Way, one of Cochran's least known LPs, presented in its entirety on this Vinyl Lovers edition. A compilation album comprising material from various sessions, My Way was released by the Liberty label in the '60s solely in the UK, where the singer enjoyed tremendous success. The LP. which never appeared in this format in the United States, includes seven tracks isued after Cochran's death: 'My Way' and 'Lonely' (first released in the UK as singles before being compiled on My Way), 'Little Lou' from a 1958 date), and four instrumentals cut during Cochran's final sessions: 'Eddie's Blues', 'Jam Sandwich', 'Hammy Blues' and 'Guybo'. The latter four tracks first saw light on My Way.

On some of the compilation's remaining songs, producer Snuff Garrett overdubbed either piano. guitar, chorus or orchestra tracks onto the original 1956 masters. In addition to the original masterpiece, this collector's edition contains 2 bonus tracks from the same sessions, which were not included on the original LP.

"Eddie Cochran"

Eddie Cochran

Along with Buddy Holly, he is one of the legendary figures of rock'n'roll. Born on 3.10.1938 in Oklahoma, he embodies the type of the somewhat disadvantaged middle-class rocker all his life. Externally he resembled James Dean and his songs also had this trace of revolt and resignation that had made James Dean famous. His "Summer Time Blues" and "C'mon everybody" are probably still the best known. They were also his most successful hits.

Eddie Cochran made his breakthrough at the end of 1958, not even two years later he died on 17. 4.1960 near London. He was on tour in England, trying to get to the airport in a cab. Today he is still a role model for many groups and musicians and his songs are being recorded again and again, the Who were the ones who recorded his "Summertime Blues" and in 1975 the English group Showaddywaddy was successful with his "Three Steps to Heaven".



Original Presse-Info: United Artists Records GmbH

 

Eddie Cochran needs no introduction to any true rock 'n' roll fan. Despite his short life and even shorter recording career, Eddie Cochran still casts a long shadow over almost any rocker who straps on an electric guitar. Who doesn't know Summertime Blues, Nervous Breakdown, Twenty Flight Rock, or any of the other great rock 'n' roll anthems that Eddie left behind?

 

Eddie Cochran

Eddie Cochran's music has been reissued extensively, from cheap budget compilations to Bear Family's lavish and exhaustive 'Somethin' Else—The Ultimate Collection' box set (BCD 15989). This compilation is the first of its kind, covering only Eddie's most rocking tracks as a solo performer, for a solid rock 'n' roll blast from start to finish. Unlike most single-CD compilations of Eddie Cochran, this has none of the early hillbilly tracks, instrumentals or ballads. This 'Eddie Cochran Rocks' disc truly rocks!

 

Ray Edward Cochran was born October 3, 1938, in the small southern Minnesota town of Albert Lea. His parents, Frank and Alice, were transplanted 'Okies' from Oklahoma City, and though Eddie was born and raised in Minnesota, he always considered himself an Okie, too. Eddie's eldest brother Bill went into the Marines, and left the adolescent boy with his Gibson guitar. Eddie took to the instrument right away, and by the time he was 13 he was obsessed with the guitar and music in general.

Once Elvis Presley came on the scene, all bets were off in the music business, and fortunes were being won and lost overnight. Eddie and Hank joined forces with yet another transplant, Missouri native Jerry Capehart, who stepped in to produce the boys and mold their sound into the new sound. The results were some of the best rockabilly duets ever recorded—Tired & Sleepy, Fool's Paradise, Open The Door, and Slow Down, great ones all. During the same time, demos were cut with only Eddie singing, some of which have stood the test of time as solid Eddie Cochran classics. An initial stab at Pink Peg Slacks was a good one, as were covers of Carl Perkins' Blue Suede Shoes and Little Richard's Long Tall Sally, all included here in their original, undubbed versions.

All signs in the music business were pointing to rock 'n' roll, and Eddie's youthful good looks soon became the object of Presley-styled mania from female audience members. Soon thereafter, the Cochran Brothers went their separate ways, leaving behind Eddie as a new solo artist. Hank Cochran would go on to great fame and fortune as a songwriter in Nashville. Eddie's star, on the other hand, was locked and loaded, ready at the right time and the right place for something truly big. Meantime, he kept busy with local appearances and as a session guitarist on many country and rock 'n' roll sessions around Los Angeles. Eddie's guitar work graced discs by Skeets McDonald (You Ought To See Grandma Rock), Lee Denson (New Shoes), and dozens of others. Not only did this introduce Eddie to the way top studios made professional recordings, but he got to rub shoulders with some of the hottest players in the business, including Joe Maphis and steel guitarist Ralph Mooney. The session work experience brought Eddie's talent to a new professional level.
