Despite his cheesy, homespun image and the ubiquitous, high-kicking "Give Me The Moonlight" routines, Frankie Vaughan turned in a couple of convincingly mean performances in his brief movie career, in These Dangerous Years and The Right Approach, while he memorably shared intimate screen-time with Marilyn Monroe in Let's Make Love. And although he later came across as decidedly non-Rock & Roll, during the 1950s and early 60s he cut a surprising number of Big Beat, Rocking sides. His early hits were all covers of US R&R hits, e. g. 'Tweedlee Dee', 'Seventeen', 'My Boy Flat Top', 'Green Door', 'Garden Of Eden', 'Wanderin' Eyes', and many of his old records are nowadays floor-fillers on the UK's active Rockin'/dance scene. This compilation presents "Frank's Rockin' Years" and is a wholly unique set, several of these sides having never previously been reissued in any format, after appearing on 78rpm singles back in the 50s.
