School House Rock Vol. 1: School Is In! (CD)

SKU: BCD17668

$ 18.99


-On two individual CDs, Bear Family Records® explores an important stage of life that we have all gone through: School!
-34 Songs on this first edition describe what went on at school, the having to go, class tests, teachers - but also the exciting sides, pranks, school parties, romances, love and pain.
-The CD provides the soundtrack for our personal journey through time, garage rockabilly like Boppin' High School Baby, Frankie Lymon's Waiting in School, John D. Loudermilk's tearjerker Yearbook, Frankie Avalon's Teacher's Pet or rockabilly bangers like High School Lover, and so on and so forth.
-In his humorous liner notes, head teacher Roland Heinrich Rumtreiber makes sure that nothing unseemly happens ... despite the rock'n'roll.
-Fine re-mastering and plenty of illustrations in the booklet round off part 1 of the school project

School is in - at last! 'I worked and slaved the summer through, doing the things my papa told me to...' Gary U.S. Bonds nails it. But wait a minute ... why be glad? Nagging teachers, getting up early, tedious studying, stuffing your head with stuff you won't be needing on Lovers Lane? But then, you will be seeing that cutie again, the one that made eyes at you at the bake sale last May. You can sleep longer, talk jive talk with the other cats and kittens, play pranks, be in-the-know of where to be and where to go! Sounds like fun, after all. Bear Family Records® honors that most important timespan in all our lives by collecting 2 volumes of songs about high school, starting with 'School House Rock, Vol. 1 - School Is In!'.
And what a fine collection it is - surpassing the obvious shooba-dooba of mentally-sentimantely deranged harmony groups, snarly-lipped teenage wonderboys, and other '50s cliches. Don Willis's deranged echo dripping garage rockabilly romp Boppin' High School Baby rocks side by side with the big city R & B jump of Frankie Lymon's Waiting in School (Look out Ricky!); a.m.o! Don't miss out on all the fun,buy the CD!
