1985 Sessions [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
This is a fantastic 1985 comeback album from one of the legendary names in rockabilly, making it's CD debut after nearly 20 years. Backed by the UK's own Johnny and the Roccos - whose own 1985 album was recorded at just about the same time, forming the second half of this CD - Cochran was still in fantastic vocal form when Mike Vernon took him into the studio to record these cuts - all of which were specially composed for the session. The original two albums featured here are augmented by both sides of a rare Roccos 45 and the band's storming, previously-unissued take on 'Matchbox', recorded for, but omitted from, the Tearin' Up the Border album. ACE. 2005.
