The tragic loss of Eddie Cochran in April 1960, at the age of only twenty-one (even younger than Buddy Holly), robbed Rock & Roll of one of it's most precocious talents. Despite his youth he'd already cut a couple of R&R's iconic, touchstone records, was the first Rock & Roller to experiment extensively with overdubbing and other studio techniques, and had already played on countless sessions for other artists. This unique compilation presents three dozen examples of Eddie's extra-curricular activities, with artists like Gene Vincent, Mamie Van Doren, Baker Knight, Johnny Burnette, Wynn Stewart, Skeets McDonald, Al Casey, etc. In most cases he plays guitar, although he also features as a vocalist and arranger. Several of these sides are serious collectors' items, known to R&R aficionados and Cochran fans alike, whereas others are way off the regular radar and fall squarely into "rare as unicorns' manure" territory.
