Various - Bear Family Records: The Bill Haley Connection (CD)

1 CD with 52-page booklet, 29 tracks. Total playing time c. 74 mns.
 
  • A smart compilation with those songs that inspired Bill Haley.
  • In addition the most important cover versions of his classics!
  • Cross-genre, from Rock 'n' Roll and R&B to Pop songs, recordings from 1938 - 1959.
  • Comprehensive illustrated booklet with artist CVs and discographic information by Chris Gardner, carefully remastered.

Bill Haley was the first boss of Rock'n' Roll. Bear Family presents with this compilation the music that has influenced Haley and - in addition - a cross-genre collection of the best cover versions of his classic songs. The CD album covers two decades with recordings from 1938 - 1959! 

Sound influences of the early years

When Haley along with his Saddlemen turned to Boogie themes and R&B tracks during the late 1940s, Bill - coming from Western Swing - mixed the styles almost automatically and developed an early form of Rock 'n' Roll music. Most of the black Rhythm & Blues originals, which reach as far back as early Jazz, are included here and range from Count Basie (1938) and Jimmy Preston to Danny Overbea (1953).

Bill Haley's cover songs

Everybody did it back then. Everybody covered extensively black originals, Pat Boone and Elvis Presley, and Bill Haley. Some of the most beautiful originals can be found here, such as the early original version of Rock Around The Clock by Sonny Dae & His Knights, the danceable Corrine, Corrina by Big Joe Turner, the massive I'll Be True To You by Faye Adams, plus Little Richard, Sally Starr, Dickie Thompson and many more.

Bill's songs in versions of other artists and obscure material

Press Archive - Various - The Bill Haley Connection (CD) - AllMusic
Press Archive - Various - The Bill Haley Connection (CD) - AllMusic Bill Haley is a pivotal figure in rock & roll and not only because he had one of the first rock & roll hits in "Rock Around the Clock," a jumping little number that went to number one in 1954. Haley didn't write the song, nor did anybody in his Comets. It was written by Max Freedman and Jimmy DeKnight, who shopped it around to a number of groups before Haley cut the song. Sonny Dae & His Knights, a jump blues band from Indianapolis, was the first to record "Rock Around the Clock," playing it as a standard jump blues, which was good enough to catch the ear of Haley, who cut it with a harder, swinging backbeat, and the rest is history.

Press Archive - Various - The Bill Haley Connection (CD) - Mojo 29 Roots And Covers Of Bill Haley & His Comets BEAR FAMILY. CD Entertaining selection of tunes by people Bill covered and those who covered Bill. People sometimes forget, but in 1956 Bill Haley's songs were the sound of revolution. After showings of the film Rock Around The Clock, the Manchester Guardian sniffed that "a youth danced on the roof of a parked car, another performed a 'snake dance' in a dazed, hypnotised fashion." Who wouldn't? Bill had excellent taste in covers: vocal group sides (Burn That Candle by The Cues), R&B belters (Jimmy Preston's Rock The Joint) or Count Basie's 1938 big band workout Stop Beatin' Around The Mulberry Bush.
