Jack Scott - Rockin' Scott



You could get Jack's 5 CD Bear Family box set but that has lots of ballads and Gospel songs. I've trawled through the set and extracted the cream of his rockin' sides 40 tracks of pure gold.

The canuck rocker is renowned as a rock-a-billy star but to my ears he's more a country balladeer and if I may say so a slightly off key one. His rock sides are way better not really rock-a-billy more country rock but the more up tempo the better he sounds.

His later tracks for mine are his better work and he got more rockin the more into the sixties he got. My favourite track is no 27 where he takes Dylan's Rainy Day Women and turns it into a fine country rocker.

Great music but low quality...320 bit rate would sound so much better.

Nice collection but the low bitrate doesn't do the songs justice. 320 would have been so much better.
