Bill Haley & The Comets - Rock Around The Clock (1968) - Lp

Bill Haley & His Comets were an American rock and roll band, founded in 1952 and continued until Haley's death in 1981. The band, also known as Bill Haley and the Comets and Bill Haley's Comets (and variations thereof), was the earliest group of white musicians to bring rock and roll to the attention of America and the rest of the world. From late 1954 to late 1956, the group placed nine singles in the Top 20, one of those a number one and three more in the Top Ten.
Bandleader Bill Haley had previously been a country music performer; after recording a country and western-styled version of "Rocket 88", a rhythm and blues song, he changed musical direction to a new sound which came to be called rock and roll.

Although several members of the Comets became famous, Bill Haley remained the star. With his spit curl and the band's matching plaid dinner jackets and energetic stage behavior, many fans consider them to be as revolutionary in their time as the Beatles or the Rolling Stones were a decade later.

Haley and his group began playing rock in 1952 and two years later came up with their First million-seling single “Shake, Rattle And Roll”, which was closely followed by “Rock Around The Clock”. This collection of his greatest songs serves as a souvenir of a pop era that came and went with a tumultuous band and all who lived through the fifties remember it with nostalgia and affection.
