Who was Roy Hall? Was he the man who discovered Skeeter Davis, Elvis, Jerry Lee Lewis, and co-wrote "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" in a Florida swamp? Or was he a bullshit artist who made a handful of very obscure but very wonderful records a half-century ago? Listen to the music, read the text and make up your own mind. The full story of Hall's contribution to rock music is finally all in one place on this 27 track collection, from the primitive delights of "Dirty Boogie" to the Cat Music of '55 and '56 ("All By Myself," "Blue Suede Shoes," etc.) to the later Sun recordings. Along the way, there are incredible rarities, like the single for Webb Pierce's hortlived label - which almost no one has ever seen, much less heard.
