King Rock 'n' Roll Vol 2 Various Artists (King)


Ace Records
Catalogue Id:
CDCHD 1051

The King catalogue is like the gift that keeps on giving no matter how many fantastic compilations result from its vast repertoire, there never seems to be any shortage of ideas, around the Ace A&R brains trust, for more fabulous packages to complement those already in the company catalogue. Our tape copying trips to King's Nashville HQ continue to give us plenty of permutations of the label's great recordings with which to entertain you and this month we have two more goodies that will leave you happy in heart, if a little empty in pocket.

"King Rock'n'Roll" brings to CD some of the best up-tempo rockers'n'jivers released on King, or its subsidiary labels Federal and DeLuxe, during the second half of the 1950s and the (very) early 60s.
