    Description

    "Johnny Burnette and the Rock 'n Roll Trio" LP (Coral 57080, 1956). One of the most sought-after collectible records from Rock and Roll's early days featured the raw, energetic sounds of a trio from Memphis, whose band name, The Rock and Roll Trio, was as stark as their music. This is truly Rock and Roll without frills, performed with an abandon and style that has influenced the genre to this day. Elvis was listening (he grew up in the same housing project as the Burnette brothers). Ricky Nelson later recorded Burnette Brothers-penned rockers, as did later generation bands, the Yardbirds and Aerosmith. Although recorded on a major label, this is a rare album. It didn't have much commercial success, and nice copies are close to impossible to find. Well, here's one! The cover has a 2" seam split repaired at top right, and a 3/4" split at the bottom right. The front cover is clean, but on the back there is a price stamped ($2.50), a stamped "PAID", and a small, wayward blue dot from a marker. But, face it -- you will have a hard time finding a nicer copy overall. Condition: EX 7/ EX 7.
