It matters not which side you drop the stylus on, both sides give up hard hitting Rockers..

Billy Crash Craddock boy-wonder of Greensboro, North Carolina released to 45's at local labels, his reputation gained him a contract with Columbia. This his first release for Columbia's newly launched Date label failed sell. Both sides raw, uncompromising Rockabilly dance tunes, not a commercial note played on either side. Success in his early years eluded Billy in his home country, but in the late 50's he became as Australian teen-idol which kept him going. A string of USA releases through the 60's and a solitary album failed. it was not until 1969 more than a decade after this double-rocker that Billy got his first USA hit, for his perseverance.

This 1958 double-helping of raw Rockabilly today stands as a testament to 19 year old Billy's endurance to make it in the music industry.

Two rebellious rockers - one elusive disc..
