SUMMERTIME BLUES * EDDIE COCHRAN * LONDON 8702 * UK
It might come as a surprise to students and fans of the 1960s Mod movement that this rocking record was played down that highest of high temples of Mod (as the place for style and dance): 'The Scene', No surprise really as Guy Stevens, the DJ was a bit of an old rocker himself.
Rock and Roll at its most subversive, on this ageless track. Eddie Cochran, who died at 21, is reaching out to the youth with a voice that can be understood and identified with, that same voice was heard again with the advent of Punk.
