THE ROOTS OF PSYCHOBILLY - VARIOUS ARTISTS [Vinyl]

Added to cart! View cart or continue shopping

The history of American pop and rock music is littered with examples of short term genre crazes. Some of them of lesser worth fizzled only briefly and usually died out as quickly as they had arrived. Included here would be space songs, monster records, novelty items and death discs, and we might even be tempted to list Psychobilly were it not for the fact that the retrospectively named genre has proved to have had a huge amount of influence on US groups and artists over the decades. The roots of Psychobilly are found in the Rockabilly strand of Rock 'n' Roll, itself a rich and collectable genre of music. It did however rather tend to push things to the limit with manic vocals, wild instrumentation, and the overall feel of the records. The tracks gathered here span the years 1956 up to 1964, thus lodging them neatly between the original rockers and the sixties rockers.
