Johnny Burnette had two distinct phases in his career. Many will remember his Liberty years, the teen idol performing polished pop such as Dreamin', You're Sixteen and Little Boy Sad. Before this transformation though, he was Rockabilly through and through. With his visceral vocals and the driving rhythms of his brother Dorsey and his Rock 'n' Roll Trio, Johnny Burnette laid down some of the finest rockabilly tracks of all time. This collection concentrates on that era. It is not about conquering charts or sales successes, but highlights the pure power, energy and spirit of the music that helped form rock 'n' roll. We feature the best of Burnette's recorded singles up to his commercial breakthrough in 1960 including the immortal Tear It Up, the distorted chugging's of The Train Kept A-Rollin' and Honey Hush, through to the distinctly mad Gumbo.
