• Bill HALEY & His Comets - Rock, Clocks & Alligators - All The Hits & More, 1953-1961

BILL HALEY & HIS COMETS were, of course, the most important, catalytic artists in the arrival of Rock & Roll.

Their million-selling 'Crazy Man, Crazy', issued in 1953, is generally perceived as having been R&R's first major hit record, although their 'calling card' is of course 'Rock Around The Clock', the multi-million-selling worldwide hit that established R&R's arrival on an international stage.

Their other notable million-sellers include 'Shake, Rattle & Roll', 'Dim, Dim The Lights', 'Burn That Candle' and 'See You Later, Alligator'.

All are included on this unique compilation, which comprises all their twenty-six U.S. and U.K. hits between 1953 and 1960, plus a handful of subsequent, 1960-1961 follow-up singles.

Although it seems unlikely, their later, non-hit 45s are notoriously hard to find on CD, and sides like 'Chick Safari', 'Hawk', 'Let The Good Times Roll, Creole', 'Spanish Twist' and 'Warpaint' are invariably omitted from other Haley compilations.
