UK collection. This compilation anthologizes Billy "Crash" Craddock's early rock 'n' roll career between 1957-61, including all his Australian hits, a couple of which were never released in the US. Also includes a handful of other collectors' rarities, which have never previously appeared on CD. Long before his 1970s/80s career as "Mr Country-Rock", with forty hits on the US Country charts, Billy "Crash" Craddock was a teenage rockabilly/rock 'n' roller. Between 1957-61 he cut a dozen or so 45s for a variety of labels, which have long since become sought-after collectors' rarities. Several of these were US regional hits, and covered internationally, e.g. 'Ah, Poor Little Baby' (Adam Faith) and 'I Want That' (Johnny Kidd). In an unlikely turn of events he became a massive star in Australia during 1960-61, registering two #1 records - 'Boom Boom Baby' and 'One Last Kiss' - plus a further half-dozen Aussie hits.
