(5-CD box set with hardcover book) Here are absolutely all of Haley’s pre-Decca recordings. These recordings are where rock ‘n’ roll really began. They predate Rock Around The Clock, and reveal Bill and the Comets at work on their own unique blend of boogie woogie, hillbilly, pop, blues and jazz, years before anyone else. We hear him invent the as-yet unnamed music that came to be called rock ‘n’ roll that eventually changed the world. In addition to all of his recordings for those labels, this set also includes rare ‘live’ recordings, transcriptions, demonstration discs, and alternate takes. It’s all here, including the first true rock ‘n’ roll hits: Rock The Joint, Real Rock Drive, Crazy Man Crazy, Fractured and Rocket 88.
