Rockin' Chick's RockaBilly Pop

Well. Rockabilly Pop was the best tag I could make up for this set of tunes. In fact, it’s between Rockabilly (tho’ not the usual stripped to the bone versions of RnR standards) and Pop (tho’ not like 16 Candles or California Dreamin’). Time range is 1958 to 1966, so you have to set your mind back some years before the British Invasion swept America, and you will find out, there was a fertile ground and many kickin’ sounds were already around indeed. Half of it played and sung by black musicians, the other ones by whities. No big differences I reckon, and I love it just like that .
All tracks were posted on Rockin’ Chick’s youtube channel, and I picked the ones I liked the most. I hope you’ll dig the Popabilly Rock sounds!
