Tommy Sands: The Drugstore's Rockin' - A Big Date With Tommy Sands (CD)

1-CD (Digipak) with 36-page booklet, 36 individual tracks, total playing time approx. 79 minutes.

  • As a seven-year-old, Tommy Sands, born in 1937, appeared on the legendary country show 'The Louisiana Hayride'. 
  • At age 20, he starred in the NBC television show 'The Singing Idol' in Hollywood, based on Elvis' life story - and landed a huge hit with Teen-Age Crush.
  • Bear Family Records® collects on this CD all the great rockers and teen rockers he recorded for Capitol . 
  • With The Raiders (later to become The Sharks) and outstanding lead guitarist Scotty Turner, he recorded some of the best West Coast-produced rockers like Blue Ribbon Baby, The Worrying Kind and Wicked, Wicked Woman!
  • Extensive liner notes by Bill Dahl; comprehensive booklet with lots of pictures and illustrations and a discography on the recordings.
  • Carefully remastered from the best accessible sources.

Capitol Records was in the enviable position of having two challengers to Elvis’ regal status in 1957: Gene Vincent, who may have appeared just a little too threatening for full-on mainstream embrace in the states, and the more clean-cut Tommy Sands. He was no mere teenage idol; Tommy really did possess the vocal chops to convincingly rock, as he proves throughout this jam-packed compilation. 

Although it seemed that Sands burst upon the scene like a hydrogen bomb with his early 1957 smash Teen-Age Crush, he’d actually been recording since 1951, initially as a pubescent country singer in Houston, before he and his mom moved to Los Angeles to properly break into show biz. Tommy’s records actually got tougher as time went on; his incredible ’58 album ‘Sands Storm!’ rocked like crazy (his cover of The Clovers’ Hey, Miss Fanny sported a jaw-dropping guitar solo that was likely the work of Joe Maphis). 

Once he hooked up with The Raiders who later became The Sharks and led by guitarist Scotty Turner, Sands really got down to rocking business on Blue Ribbon Baby, The Worrying Kind, and Wicked, Wicked Woman. You won’t find any of Sands’ sedate pop crooning on this collection—it’s non-stop rocking from first track to last with the exception of Teen-Age Crush and three great mid-tempo songs!

Tommy Sands

Thanks to his 1955 friendship with the pre-international superstardom Elvis, Tommy Sands was recommended by Col. Tom Parker for the starring part in a major television show called 'The Singing Idol' (loosely featured on Presley's meteoric rise). Sands  had knocked around for a while as a young country singer, recording eight singles for RCA, but Capitol's Teenage Crush – featured in 'The Singing Idol' -  became one of the fastest breaking discs of the period: eventually reaching number two in early 1957.

 

The song is somewhat identikit Elvis, with a low vocal and a slow tempo, but it is enlivened by some tough guitar back-up and a lyric that restates the same old teenage problem – this time somewhat pointedly aimed at parents in an early rumble of inter-generational dissent: "They call it a teen-age crush/ They don't know how I feel/ They call it a teen-age crush/ They can't believe this is real/ They've forgotten when they were young/ And the way tried to be free/ All they say is 'This young generation/ Is just not the way it used to be'".
