The guy blows me away, personally.


Actually, I'm not a fan of Link. I understand why you are though, as he laid the groundwork for later music that you love, but since I don't like that later music much, Link's records don't do much for me personally. I prefer the guitar sounds of Carl Perkins, Chuck Berry, Bo Diddley, Scotty Moore, etc....

Well you prefer the 'cleaner' sound of guitar, which is totally understandable. I friggin love Scotty Moore and Bo Diddley as well.

And let's not forget James Burton...

If you like Link Wray...perhaps you'd agree that Duane Eddy was just as, if not more influential in 50's early Rock&Roll guitar???


I do like Duane, he's got a few songs that are favorites for me.

Rebel Rouser
Forty Miles Of Bad Road
Because They're Young
Moovin' And Groovin'

I just realized, Duane's second album, Especially For You, should be on the list. Let me figure out how to do that.

Okay, I sent it in to Lew. The Duane Eddy goes in at #71 and everything else moves down one, and the Bobby Day is out. I'd like to keep the Piano Red in because it seems to be the first ever live rock album, although only one side of the album was live. If I need another slot the Jacks may go, as it's mostly older singles compiled on an album, with one or two insignificant tracks that had not been out before I think.

71. Especially For You - Duane Eddy
72. Fever - Little Willie John
73. Rockin' The Joint - Bill Haley and His Comets
74. LaVern Baker Sings Bessie Smith - LaVern Baker
75. Big Jay In 3-D - Big Jay McNeely
76. Conway Twitty Sings - Conway Twitty
77. Bobby Darin - Bobby Darin
78. Lonely Teardrops - Jackie Wilson
79. Yours Forever - Billy Ward and the Dominoes
80. Love Ballads - Clyde McPhatter
81. Whole Lotta Shakin' - Carl Perkins
82. Joe Houston Blows All Nite Long - Joe Houston
83. Let's Play Fats Domino - Fats Domino
84. Singin' To My Baby - Eddie Cochran
85. Try Me - James Brown
86. That'll Be The Day - Buddy Holly
87. Cliff - Cliff Richard
88. The Blues - B.B. King
89. Ray Charles At Newport - Ray Charles
90. Come Go With The Del-Vikings - Del-Vikings
91. Rock And Roll Dance Party - Alan Freed
92. Sam Cooke - Sam Cooke
93. Shout! - Isley Brothers
94. Walkin' With Mr. Lee - Lee Allen
95. Buddy Knox - Buddy Knox
96. Jumpin' With The Jacks - Jacks
97. New Sounds - Mickey and Sylvia
98. On Stage - Five Keys
99. Frankie Lymon at the London Paladium - Frankie Lymon
100. In Concert - Piano Red

I really love your taste in music, despite our somewhat heated encounters on the Elvis vs. Beatles thing a while back.

Are you into the Platters at all? Tony Williams is incredible....

Yes, I like the Platters a lot. Tony gets ignored some by the Doo Wop collectors because the Platters records were more pop than R&B, but he was among the best lead singers from any of those groups. Tremendous power, great range and tone. "My Prayer" is a masterpiece, and "The Great Pretender" is an essential part of early rock and roll. Their more lush things later like "Twilight Time" and "Smoke" are fantastic too.

I absolutely fell in love with Moonlight Memories, and his version of Over The Rainbow was unbelievable, maybe even better than Jackie Wilson's....

Love the avatar! Never would've imagined you as a Doors fan. My all-time favorite group.

I knew what the top two would be as soon as I saw this list. There are no other choices.

Bruce,
We've needed a 50's album list for a long time. Excellent job here.
I tried to think of some nominations that you might have forgotten, but seems like you nailed them all, and with pretty good ordering too.
Sucks that this era is kind of under-appreciated by other young people my age.

I agree with Clash, those top 2 should never change. They personified rock & roll.

Did you not notice the "Rock & Roll" in the title? Clearly this isn't a cross-genre list, or there are a lot of other things that would be missing besides Ol' Blue Eyes. (Like, Nat King Cole, Harry Belafonte, tons of jazz, Broadway cast albums, etc.)
