Billy Adams became well known in the United States through many of his singles in the rockabilly scene in the 1950s and early 1960s. He was a musical contemporary of Bill Yates with whom he recorded some songs. On this CD we find a compilation from this era, some of which have never been published before. Some of it in different versions. Mostly very rocking (e.g. track 1, 6, 8, 14, 16, 18) then again bluesy and sappy (e.g. track 19-24). I like the duet on track 5 very much. In any case, the music is really good. For rockabilly and rock’n roll fans a must have CD, a reflection of the music scene in Memphis at the time.
