a splendid overview of the career of Jimmy Cavallo and His House Rockers from 1951 to 2006.

It's evident here how Cavallo went from rhythm 'n' blues to the Northern Band sound and later found his way back to his R&B roots. Cavallo's songs never made the charts, he was always overshadowed by the famous style related Bill Haley ‐ but this CD proves the liveliness and danceability of Jimmy Cavallo's music. The album in our renowned 'Rocks' series contains all the recordings from the 1950s, including all the Coral masters and rare live recordings from Alan Freed's 'Rock And Roll Dance Party' shows. The numbers recorded by Cavallo in 1959/'60 for the Sunnyside and Hand labels are among today's sought‐after rarities. The compilation is rounded off with two 'newer' recordings for Blue Wave Records! The 36‐page color booklet includes the Cavallo story written by noted Chicago music journalist Bill Dahl, plus rare photos, illustrations and discographical details.
