TOP 20 ROCKABILLY SONGS I love Rockabilly and all the old school styles of the Shak’n, Rattl’n and Roll’n. If there is old vinyl you are searching for, Third Man Records (Jack White of the White Stripes’ label) has recently joined with Sun Records and is reproducing the oldies on vinyl for our listening pleasures. Here are the top 45s releases of the 1950s Rockabilly oldies:

The song that started it all: That’s All Right by Elvis Presley,Scotty Moore & Bill Black (the Blue Moon Boys) on Sun Records 1954

And these other legendary tunes: Blues Suede Shoes, by Carl Perkins on Sun records. 1955 Baby Let’s Play House, by Elvis Presley,Scotty and Bill on Sun records 1955 One Hand Loose, by Charlies Feathers w/Jody and Jerry on King Records 1957 Good Rockin’ Tonight, by Elvis Presley, Scott and Bill on Sun records 1957 Matchbox, by Carl Perkins on Sun records 1957 The Train Kept A-Rollin’, by Johnny Burnette & the Rock N’Roll Trio on Coral Records 1956 Bottle to the Baby, by Charlie Feathers w/ Jerry & Jody on King Records 1957 Red Hot by Bill Riley, Robert Gordon & Link Wray on Sun records Tear it Up, by Johnny Burnette & the Rock N’Roll Trio on Sun Records 1957 Race with the Devil, by Gene Vicent & his Blue Caps on Capital records 1957 Rock & Roll Ruby, by Warren Smith on Sun records 1956 Rock-A- Billy Boogie, by Johnny Burnette & the Rock N’ Roll Trio 1956 Boppin’ the Blues, by Carl Perkins on Sun Records 1956 w/ Johnny Cash Ooby Dooby, by Roy Orbison on Sun Records 1956 Flyin’ Saucers Rock and Roll, by Bill Riley, Robert Gordon & Link Wray on Sun records 1957 w/ Jerry Lee Lewis on piano Honey Don’t, by Carl Perkins on Sun records 1956 Fujiyama Mama, by Wanda Jackson on Capitol Records 1957 Mystery Train, by Elvis Presely, Scotty & Bill on Sun Records 1955 Honey Hush, by Johnny Burnette & the Rock N’ Roll Trio on Coral records 1956.
