Boogie Woogie Country Girl
(Germany - Import)
EU-only collection, the first comprehensive overview of Jo Ann Campbell's rock 'n' roll recordings for Point, Eldorado, Gone, Rori and ABC-Paramount. Jo Ann Campbell had it all - looks, talent, and great records. In just two years she went from a wide-eyed fan at an Alan Freed rock 'n 'roll revue to becoming one of Freed's most popular stars. She performed for thousands of fans, proving that she could rock just as hard as any of her male contemporaries, and she wrote her own songs and recorded numbers by some of the top songwriters of the day. Although she only scored a few national hits, her recordings for Eldorado, Gone, Rori and ABC-Paramount mixed a cute, girl-next-door charm with lusty, growling rock 'n' roll vocals. This release focuses on the original 'Blonde Bombshell' with 37 tracks that comprise a comprehensive overview of the best of her rock 'n' roll recordings from 1956 to '62. The set includes her rare, debut single for Point Records along with several previously unreleased numbers.
