One will especially pick up him at home in a limousine to play lead guitar on the forthcoming album. Sticks Evans (aka Willie Davis???), African drums, is recruited because the content of the LP is supposed to be very "twist" and, as Evans plays with The Starliters of Joey Dee (Roulette star-house, a firm directed successively by Levy and Goldner), he is thus regarded as THE specialist in the dance craze/rhythm à la mode.***UK Ember [An Ember Records Release (distributed by Pye Records (Sales) Ltd.)/Suite 4 - Carlton Tower Place, Sloane Street - London S.W.I.] EMB 3396, "P.1969": LP "The King of Rock Bill Haley plays", June 1968 : originally Whisky A Go Go released in Mexico on the Orfeón/DIMSA label (12478) in 1966.***Like all true professionals, Haley's greatest asset is his ability to take his music out of the recording studio and perform it LIVE.***Mainly the accent is on the kind of rock'n'Roll that Bill Haley and the Comets have made their own since April 1954.***"When you will have heard this album you will know why Bill Haley wore the crowns!***At that time, Mexico, 1966, the Bill Haley legend started nearly 15 years ago...There followed a series of int'l smash-hits which included Shake, Rattle and Roll, RATC and many others. In fact, the list of Bill's record successes went on to read like a one-man chart took-over bid.***Mariachi Vargas were formed by Don Gaspar Vargas in Tecatlitán, Jalisco, Mexico back in 1898.***CD : from the LP "Twistin' Knights At The Roundtable - Roulette R-25174, ca.

THE BEATLES 1962-1970 (2 DVD's - 2005) 1/12/2007

Ce double DVD est un survol critique de l'oeuvre musicale, cinématographique et scénique des Beatles.***Ce coffret contient l'analyse et l'origine (pour les reprises) de leurs chansons enregistrées entre 1962 et 1970.***A mon avis, l'une de leurs meilleures reprises est celle de Rock And Roll Music de (mon ami MySpace) Chuck Berry.
