The Nashville Teens: Tobacco Road (UK, 1964)

The Nashville Teens were a truly kick-ass rock & roll band from London. Their main claim to fame was providing the kamikaze backup behind Jerry Lee Lewis on his Live at the Star Club LP and recording the massive hit "Tobacco Road." This disc reissues that entire 1964 album and adds another 14 bonus tracks to it, getting us all the way to 1971 in the group's recorded output. Hot versions Of "Mona," "I Like It Like That," "La Bamba," and "Too Much" are the album's high points, and while the later tracks are a nice touch, they don't quite measure to the group's halcyon days.
I know..this is not the comp that you are looking Roadrunner...but still more stuff to the collection ah? Pay attention to this one. (with bonus tracks & all...almost 30 songs!)

Me encanta este disco, muchas veces estuve por subirlo,hay uno de rarezas que me gustaria conseguir,alguna vez escuche que es mejor que este pero no se.La priméra parte del disco es excelente y luego se mantiene . El Baterista de esta banda;luego con The Animals,tuvo un accidente junto con el bajista de The Rolling Stones y parte de la banda de Bo Diddley,viniendo de una gira que se hizo en 1964.B.Jenkins sufrio geaves heridas en su cara miéntras que el miembro de La banda de B.Diddley falleció.Pero bien este es un excelente post!!
