The song Rock Around The Clock was written and composed in November 1952 by Jimmy De Knight (aka James E. Myers) in collaboration with composer "freelance" , Max C. Freedman . It is likely , as was common at the time a publisher has offered Rock Around The Clock Dave Miller , owner of Essex Records in Chester ( Pennsylvania ) or someone around him but nobody ever wanted . It is finally Sonny Dae (aka Paschal Vennitti ) and His Knights in Chester which record the song in October 1953. Rock Around The Clock comes out ARCADE (45- AR- 123), a small label owned by Jack Howard in March 1954. (*) RATC sells for at least a thousand copies in the Delaware Valley , but it is not distributed nationally ( coast to coast ) lack of interest in a Major. Despite his insistence , "on" denied him the right to record (not even in the demo ) . Finally released from his contract with Essex Records, "Bill Haley and His Comets" will save RATC April 12, 1954 at the Pythian Temple in New York City. Bill Haley was so late ( arriving from the neighboring state , New Jersey ) for the record that he had to be back there twice which cost three hours of studio ( thin! Price to cost one hour. ..) . The disc is distributed by Decca ( ​​the 78s 29124 ) and Decca ( ​​the single 9-29124 ) " coast to coast " simultaneously with another country located in Western Europe : Belgium ! DECCA Label 9.60.961 B side of Pinball Boogie Red Foley ( 10 May 1954 ) . But back about seven months ago : Bill Haley , great musician and multi-instrumentalist ( guitar , slap bass ) has a flair like no other and he believes in this song . At the end of September 53 , he added to his repertoire and playing for the first time in public in the name of the time "Bill Haley With Haley's Comets" in the resort of Wildwood -by-the -Sea Hotel Hofbrau in southern New Jersey ( **) . A few months later , Rock Around The Clock does not take long to rank No. 23 in the Billboard Pop chart of May 29, 1954 (***) ... The following is part of the history of the "Popular Music" . ..

Eddy Mitchell et Bill Haley : adaptations (25/09/2008)

Eddy-les chaussettes noires 1 & 2Eddy- 3 & 4Eddy- 5 & 6Après trois plantages et une version alternative de "Shake, Rattle And Roll" (de Big Joe Turner, Atlantic Records 1026, avril 1954, #1 R'n'B, #22 Pop) enregistrés le 21/01/1962 au Studio Barclay Hoche Paris (Polydor 523095 2, 1994), une version finale des Chaussettes Noires sortira en mars 1962 sur Barclay 80171 "Le 2.000.000eme disque" et en 1990 dans la série CD Le Rock c'est ça ! PolyGram 843021-2.***Bien des années plus tard, Eddy en refera une nouvelle version.***Leur version est inspirée par celle de Bill Haley and His Comets qui sortit aux USA sur le label DECCA le 12/07/1954.***En septembre 1968 (LP "7 Colts Pour Schmoll") figure une autre reprise de Haley qu'il a lui-même empruntée à Dickie Thompson and his orchestra ("Thirteen Women And One Man", Herald 424, 01/1954) "Treizes Filles" [méconnaissable!] (Barclay 60 971) d'après "Thirteen Women (And Only One Man In Town)" que Haley avait enregistré lors de la session de Rock Around The Clock au Pythian Temple à New York City le 12 avril 1954 (sortie DECCA, 10 mai 1954).***En 1976, Eddy sort un très bel album intitulé "Sur La Route De Memphis" (Polydor 843 364.1, 1976/Barclay 900 505, 1978) enregistré à Nashville au Studio Cinderella, entouré de la fine fleur des musiciens country dont e.a. Charlie McCoy, Randy "Boots" Randolph incluant e.a. une reprise de "That's How I Got To Memphis" (de Tom T. Hall, 1968) d'après celle très peu connue que Bill Haley a sortie en 12/1968 ou 01/1969 selon les sources sur le label United Artists Records 50483 qui est incluse dans le CD "Let's All Rock Together".***L'année suivante en octobre 1977 sort un nouvel LP intitulé "La Dernière Séance", Barclay 910 001, qui comprend une autre reprise de Bill Haley (with The Saddlemen, Holiday 113, 01/1952 puis Essex EP-118, 09/1954) "Juke Box Cannon Ball" [sous le titre "Mon flash back"] dont le texte est une réécriture de "Wabash Cannonball" (des Carter Family, RCA, 1927) par Jesse Rogers en 1951.***Bill Haley réenregistrera cette chanson pour un ultime LP "Everyone Can Rock And Roll" ne contenant pratiquement que des nouvelles chansons sorties en septembre 1979.***Comme je l'indiquais plus haut, Eddy réenregistre "Shake, Rattle & Roll" sous le titre "Un Chèque En Bois...C'est Drôle" ! dont il a écrit le texte et qui figure sur le CD "Nashville ou Belleville ?" sorti en 1984 sur le LP Racines, RCA PD 70441/All. (RDA) PL 70441 et ensuite sur le CD EDDY MITCHELL 83/85 (CD 18) en 1994.***"Happy Birthday Rock And Roll" est e.a. un hommage à Bill Haley (1955-1980).***Pour terminer, il est bon de noter que son ami de toujours Johnny Hallyday lui a emprunté "Sur La Route De Memphis" qui figure sur le CD Destination Vegas (live) sorti chez Philips (534493-2) en 1996.
