Freddie Vett and The Flames play nothing but the music of the late 50s and early 60s, but it's still energizing and fun. We may be getting older, but the classic rock of yesterday certainly keeps us with a youthful attitude.
Of course, the group played a great deal of heavy rock from the first decade which included "Rock Around The Clock", "Oh Boy" "Hound Dog" and "Great Balls of Fire". The girls sang numbers like "Mister Postman", "He's a Rebel" and "My Boyfriend's Back".
Added to the above were songs that you rarely hear anymore like The Monotone's, "Book of Love"(A dowop classic), The Coaster's "Charlie Brown"(A novelty song) and Santo and Johnny's "Sleepwalk"(an instrumental classic). Incredibly, the lead singer Freddie Vett was able to play Sleepwalk in the same way it was recorded.
There's a great deal of youthful teenage energy and feeling in these songs. I've tried to make my own classic R & R collection on this Youtube website.
Rock and Roll is a very diversified music genre. It didn't take the Beatles to prove this to me.
Back in the good old days, if I listened to a song once or twice and if it left an impression, I would remember it many years later. This happened with Cliff Richard's "Please Don't Tease" and Eddie Holland's "Jamie".
There's something about the timelessness of a song that can stick with you. It's like it came from another world where time stands still and no one ages.
