    Description

    Bill Haley and His Comets "Shake Rattle and Roll" Mono LP Decca 5560 (1955). Haley had been performing since the late forties, but really came into his own with the Comets in 1953 when the early Rock tune "Crazy Man, Crazy" on the Essex label hit #12 on the Pop charts. The next year he signed with Decca, and charted twice in '54, seven times in '55, and ten times in '56 to secure his place in Rock and Roll history. Two songs included here, the title song, and, arguably the song that kicked off the Rock and Roll era, "Rock Around The Clock" probably would have guaranteed that had he never released another single! Including those two, this 10" LP contained Haley's first five charting hits for Decca. The cover has a 4" seam split at upper right corner. The record looks EX 7 but does have some surface noise. Condition: VG-EX 6 (cover)/ VG 5 (record). From the GRT Collection
