Bill Haley and his Comets – Rockin’ the “Oldies”!

I wonder if Bill Haley and his Comets put the quotes around “oldies” on their fifth album because they knew that one day their own original music would be labeled the same.

Released in 1957, this album was a collection of he and his band, famous for issuing in the era of rock and roll with their hits “Rock Around the Clock” and “See You Later, Alligator,” covering popular song’s from the three decades prior to their own success.  Unfortunately, it gained them no more popular hits. 

Still a great record though.
