Actor-singer Eddie Fontaine enjoyed a career that started before the arrival of Elvis Presley and that he still pursued long after The King's demise in 1977. A jack of all trades when it came to music, Eddie was never short of a record deal in the 1950s and this new 2CD Jasmine set collects up everything he recorded between 1955 and 1962, when demand for his services as an actor gradually sidelined he would return to the singing career in the second half of the 1970s.

He was covered by the Beatles and Billy Fury (among others), he appeared in inarguably the greatest rock 'n' roll film musical of all time and though he never really enjoyed a huge amount of chart success he's highly regarded in the realms of the rock 'n' roll community.

Actor-singer Eddie Fontaine enjoyed a career that started before the arrival of Elvis Presley and that he still pursued long after The King's demise in 1977. A jack of all trades when it came to music, Eddie was never short of a record deal in the 1950s and this new 2CD Jasmine set collects up everything he recorded between 1955 and 1962, when demand for his services as an actor gradually sidelined he would return to the singing career in the second half of the 1970s.

Eddie's biggest two records were 'Cool It Baby' (as featured in 'The Girl Can't Help It') and 'Nothin' Shakin' (a 45 for Billy Fury and a regular feature of the Beatles in their Hamburg sets). But there's so much more to enjoy in his discography, as you will hear here in this chronologically arranged, superbly remastered package.

There have been other compilations on Eddie in the CD era, but this is the only one that brings together every single track he recorded in the peak years of his singing career. As such it's definitive and will be a welcome addition to the collection of any and every fan of the great rockin' music of the 1950s!
