Rock Around The Clock…

9. februar 2011

In his mythic moment of marketability, his mix of jump blues and Western swing was good for a small body of work that’s unique in its efficient drive if only because nobody’s been square enough to imitate it, though Brian Setzer is due to try. Most of it’s here–12 songs, 32 minutes, 10 bucks. Give it some time and you may yet feel in your bones how “Rock Around the Clock” could change the world.

(Robert Christgau)

Torben mindes Bill Haley i anledningen af 30-Ã¥rsdagen for mandens død. Og jeg er sikker pÃ¥, at John Lennon ville bifalde hyldesten, hvis han ellers havde kunnet. Det kan godt være, at rock’n roll ikke blev født med b-siden “Rock Around The Clock”, men den mÃ¥ for min skyld gerne fÃ¥ æren. For den holder stadigvæk…
