Eddie Cochran: The Year 1957 (CD)

1-CD Digipak (4-sided) with 52-page booklet. 30 tracks. Playing time approx. 72:14 mns. 
  • His 1957 Liberty sessions, re-issued in two different formats.
  • The CD version comes with a comprehensive booklet along with a Digipak.
  • Based on the original ‘Singing To My Baby’ album with different running order and two songs substituted for enhanced listening pleasure.
  • Liner notes by Bill Dahl, a full 1957 discography and a whole lot of great shots made during the recording sessions.
  • 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.

"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.

Press Archive- Eddie Cochran - The Year 1957 - AllMusic
Press Archive- Eddie Cochran - The Year 1957 - AllMusic AllMusic Review by Stephen Thomas Erlewine [-] The title The Year 1957 carries an air of documentary to it, so it's no surprise that this 2018 Bear Family collection does play a bit like a history lesson, telling the story of a pivotal 12 months in Eddie Cochran's career. During this year, Cochran scored his first Top 40 hit with the sultry slow-burner "Sittin' in the Balcony" and cut the swinging rock & roll standard "Twenty Flight Rock," along with several other fine sides for Liberty, many of which were issued on the album Singing to My Baby. Nearly all of that album is featured on The Year 1957, with the notable exceptions of substituting alternate takes for "Completely Sweet" and "Twenty Flight Rock," along with the undubbed take of "Ah, Pretty Girl." Added to the mix are a host of radio interviews and promos, plus three live tracks, including a version of Jerry Lee Lewis' "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On." For most Cochran fanatics -- and it's hard not to argue that this is targeted at them -- it's this back section that will provide the most revelations, and for those who know the hits and want to dig a bit deeper, the interviews do push this collection of tremendously entertaining music toward the educational.
