Man, oh man. Eddie Cochran and Gene Vincent, both absolute top tier early rockers. You know that. I just came across that photo above (high resolution here). Good enough to dig up a few that I haven't posted before. Even if you know these songs, they're likely on an LP or playlist and you're listening to multiple songs in succession. Do yourself a favor. Even if you, like me, have heard them a thousand times over the years, isolate one of them. Just set aside three minutes of your time and pick that shit apart. I've heard Cochran's "Ping Peg Slacks" hundreds of times, but it wasn't until tonight that I really heard him mid-song (at 1:04) with the snotty delivery on "I went to see my ba-behh!". I was cracking up. It sounded like some bratty twenty one year old kid, which it technically was. Catching that for the first time convinced me to pick apart others. Which is where I'm going. Liftoff.
