Six-Five Special! & Jack Good’s Oh Boy! - Early British Televised Rock N Roll
SIX-FIVE SPECIAL & JACK GOODS 'OH BOY!'
Towards the end of the 1950s when television and rock and roll were in their infancy the BBC launched what was to be it's first attempt at a rock and roll programme. It was noisy. It was brash. It was chaotic. The high brow press hated it but the young people took it to their hearts. Six-Five Special was born! Almost a year later 'Oh Boy!' was launched on ITV by the same producer who created Six-Five Special, Jack Good. Unlike it's predecessor it was an all out blast of streamlined rock and roll akin to a rocket launch!
This fantastic CD has a whopping 39 tracks that cover both the Six-Five Special and 'Oh Boy!' albums in their entirety! Featuring big names Don Lang, Jim Dale and an artist who went on to be one of the UK biggest rock n roll stars Cliff Richard.
If you are after some real corkers then check out Jim Dales 'Party Time' and Don Lang's 'Ramshackle Daddy' which rock by like an avalanche! Quite simply if you were around for these shows you will already know how good they were and if you missed them then now is your chance to grab hold of this sizzling hot rock platter and tear up the rug in your front room!
