• Freddy CANNON - Tallahassee Lassie

Freddy 'Boom-Boom' Cannon was the last of the '50s-styled rockers.

This compilation features all his singles between 1959-1961, including the million-selling 'Tallahassee Lassie' (both the original single version and the LP re-cut) and 'Way Down Yonder In New Orleans', plus his first two LPs, 'The Explosive Freddy Cannon!' and 'Happy Shades of Blue'.

Also included are the rare Doo Wop singles he recorded as the lead singer of The Spindrifts, plus a radio jingle he wrote and recorded for Arnie Ginsberg.

Cannon was particularly popular in Britain - 'The Explosive Freddy Cannon!' was the first R&R LP to top the UK's album charts.

Many other re-issues of this material which have notoriously suffered with poor sound quality, but Jasmine has done a fantastic job for much of this material, making this the only Freddy Cannon compilation worth owning!
