• John D LOUDERMILK - The Songs Of... - Sittin' In The Balcony

John D. Loudermilk is widely acknowledged as the most idiosyncratic songwriter of the rock & roll era and this unique 2CD compilation presents his story from two entirely different perspectives.

Disc one comprises his own recordings between 1957-61, including his original hit versions of, 'Sittin' in the Balcony', 'Language Of Love' and 'Blue Train'. Disc two features his songs performed by other artists during the same period such as: Eddie Cochran, Johnny Cash, Brenda Lee, Ricky Nelson, The Everly Brothers. Bobby Vee, Connie Francis and many more.

This is the first time that Loudermilk's repertoire has been compiled this way, and with many tracks on disc two being unavailable elsewhere on CD, this is a real gem!
