The Early Jin Singles: Southland Rock n’ Roll – various artists CD


SKU ACE878 Categories , ,

Southland Rock n’ Roll is scorching rock n’ roll and swamp pop from the bayous and prairies of South Louisiana and East Texas recorded for our Floyd Soileau’s (owner of Floyd’s Record Shop) record labels between 1958-’61. This is the music of the young, hopeful artists and bands of South Louisiana and East Texas who were creating a cultural revolution by usurping their old-fashioned native Cajun music with a brand new Southland Rock ‘n’ Roll. It seemed there would always be another Saturday night until the Beatles launched the British Invasion. But out of the debris there has been a reawakening of this music through the swamp pop phenomenon of the past two decades. Released in 2003, 30 tracks.
