It is time to get the motor running once more for another trip to Rockin’ Rollin’ USA. The latest ride from the Pan American label takes in another journey through Canada with rockabilly and rock ‘n’ roll performers who either made a name for themselves during the 50s and early 60s, or left behind a recorded work or two that went unnoticed only for the likes of Pan American to discover and give life to in the present. That’s the kind of album to expect with Rockin’ Rollin’ USA Volume 3 Canada and with the previous two excursions proving a success, there’s high hopes for this current volume. No connection whatsoever, Jim Morrison gets Volume 3 Canada off to a flying start with terrific ‘Ready To Rock’. The next few pitstops continue the rockin’ feel and with slight variations in tempo and styles with excellent Barry Boyd ‘You’re For Me’, The Showmen ‘Country Fool’, and vocal group The Willows and ‘Church Bells May Ring’. There’s rockabilly to rival many of the established names of the period with two sublime tracks in the shape of Dick Damron’s ‘Gonna Have A Party’, and The Rock-A-Tunes’ ‘You’re Some Kind of Nice’. During other stages of this car journey expect to hear some of the cutest country around with the Hachey Brothers and Mary Lou ‘Button Your Lip’, to an instrumental via Ken Davidson ‘Scotch Boogie’. Names of the time, and having appeared on other compilations include George Hamilton IV (‘If You Don’t Know’), Stoltz Brothers (‘Rock And Roll Riot’), Bernie Early (‘Your Kisses Kill Me’), and Janis Martin (‘Ooby Dooby’) making Rockin’ Rollin USA Volume 3 Canada more than a worthwhile acquisition for your record collection.
