INFORMATION Duane Eddy is enjoying a late-career resurgence with a Mojo Icon Award, an appearance at the Glastonbury Festival and a critically acclaimed new album. But Eddy has always been a household name on the strength of the eternally enduring records he made for the JAMIE label between 1958 and 1961. This collection features 30 of the very best rock 'n' roll tracks adding the best-selling Because They're Young as a bonus ballad, and Pepe because it was a huge international hit. Nothing sounds quite as BIG as Rebel Rouser, Cannonball, Forty Miles Of Bad Road, Peter Gunn, Some Kinda Earthquake, Bonnie Came Back and Shazam! They're all here along with many more. This non-stop tidal wave of twang not only inspired tens of thousands of kids to pick up a guitar, it also demonstrated the sonic capabilities of the studio in terms of rock 'n' roll production in the '60s and beyond. These are the undisputed top-of-the-heap rock'n'roll instrumentals in all their dazzling, reverb-laden, tremolo-fattened glory.
