Bill Haley And His Comets Rock The Joint on Limited Edition 180g Import 2LP

Bill Haley scored a major worldwide hit with a cover version of Big Joe Turner's "Shake Rattle And Roll," the first ever rock 'n' roll song to enter the British singles charts in December 1954. He retained elements of the original, but threw some country music elements into the song (specifically Western swing) and cleaned up the lyrics. Haley and his band The Comets were integral in launching the music known as "rock and roll" to a wider, mostly white audience after a period of it being considered and underground genre. This double vinyl release from Vinyl Lovers graciously collects 40 original recordings from Bill Haley And His Comets including the aforementioned classic"Shake Rattle And Roll," plus "Rock Around the Clock," "See You Later, Alligator," "A.B.C. Boogie!" and 1952 and 1957 versions of the compilation's title cut.
