Woah Dad! What we got here? Another super ultra rockin’n’rollin’ Surfadelic comp. And I can tell you it’s pretty big fat ”project” cause I have to select some 93 trax for three volumes of 50’s & 60’s Michigan rock’n’roll rumble. As you know I’ve recently have posted some obcure Michigan rockers as intro for this big collection of some rare, unissued and underground stuff. Here you gotta deal mostly with raw R-Billy, Rock’n’Roll, Instrumentals and few 60’s garage cuts. Some of this tunes already can be heard on various comps but some not, so if you are curious to know what is all about, don’t miss it. It’s Michigan Rumble ok! Dig !!!
“Mike Waggoner and the Bops were the originators of Minnesota stomp, well before the Trashmen unleashed Surfin Bird on America.
In fact, the Trashmen claim that the Bops were, “the biggest thing around” when they themselves were teenagers getting hooked on the big beat. Mike was only sixteen when he put the group together in the Minneapolis suburb of Richfield with his little brother Colly on lead guitar and man, do they sizzle!”
Already could be heard on various R-Billy comps as Nasty Rockabilly, Rock ‘N Roll Orgy, Rockabilly Gold, Rockabilly This Rockabilly That… well alright! Mr.Eliminator collect this solid early 60’s r-billy boppers on this little compilation just for your rockin’ pleasure. Bop!
More real fine R-billy from Rhythm Bomb Records. This time we have Sicilian rockers Dale Rocka & The Volcanoes and their ”The Midnight Ball” 2014. album vs SPO-DEE-O-DEE from Germany with their 2006. slab ”The Many Sides Of”. It’s gonna be a real rockabilly showdown ain’t it ? All wild 50s style Rockabilly , greasy Rhythm & Blues Boppers and jivin´Rockers… Dig!!!
Are you in need for some Rockabilly? I mean REAL Rockabilly, the one that grabs you, moves you and sends shivers down your spine, the one that was played back in the fifties. Don’t look no further…
Here are two bands on Rhythm Bomb Records [COOL label specialized in 1950s music, Rockabilly, Rhythm and Blues, Hillbilly, Country, Western Swing] The Rockets from Switzerland and The Bird Doggin’ Daddies from the south of Germany with their 2013. slabs full of r-billy tunes [recorded analogue] as they came from some lost 50’s Sun studios sessions. No shit! These guys sound as they have shared stages with Johnny Burnette, Elvis, Carl Perkins or Charlie Feathers in their heydays.
”They got the bug but it’s just a question of time for you to get it too.
Now guys, about this time machine, could we find an arrangement? I’d really like to see Buddy Holly on stage…” [Fred “Virgil” Turgis]
The Fireballs revive the sound of late 50’s/early 60’s British Rock ‘n’ Roll. Mostly covers of classics but nothing less it’s fun fun fun!
For fans of Billy Fury, Johnny Kidd, Shane Fenton, The Shadows and Vince Taylor. And remember! This is contemporary UK group NOT the 60’s US instro band The Fireballs I’ve posted before. Dig!

You’re pretty much familiar with Jackie Lee Cochran’s 50’s tune “Georgia Lee Brown” [covered by The Cramps] from BORN BAD comp. but his best years were 70’s, when he began recording for Rollin’ Rock label, for which he delivered two fine r-billy slabs, “Swamp Fox” (1978) and “Rockabilly Legend” (1980).
Here you gotta deal with his cool original rockers as Swamp Fox, Riverside Jump, C’mon Over In The Clover, Hip Shakin’ Mama and tearjerker ballad Drugstore Valentine as well as interesting cover of Hoochie Koochie Man. With Ray Campi on bass & drums and Jimmie Lee Maslon on piano. Rare stuff, Dig!!!
