Duane Eddy did numerous interviews on national radio and television this spring in London and is returning there to perform at the Albert Hall in October. He will get international attention to remind people of his pioneering role in rock and roll. He remains articulate and thoughtful, the same shy superstar who speaks through his guitar, ready to get out and play and promote the younger artists with whom he performs.
(3-CD set) With 75 tracks on 3 CDs and music and photos never previously released, this is the ultimate collection of Duane Eddy's spectacular career as the original guitar god and pioneering top 40 instrumentalist. Starting with his first Jamie single in 1958, the set covers every single Duane Eddy release on Jamie Records. The releases are supplemented with session outtakes, undubbed alternative takes, studio chat and previously unreleased original music that fill out and bring alive Duane's early career. No less important are the contribution and methods of Duane's producer Lee Hazlewood, himself a legend of rock 'n roll history.
