Full details

There hasn’t exactly been a flurry of wedding songs recently. Luckily we can turn our attentions to a more innocent time when teenage dreams, or occasionally adult lust, ruled the recording studio. So here’s your perfect wedding package, bells and shotguns included.

Drawing on his knowledge and enthusiasm for vintage rhythm & blues and rock & roll, Mark Lamarr gathers together songs in celebration of weddings, harmonious or otherwise.

Rockin’ Rollin’ Wedding packs in 24 tracks, including hits courtesy of Big Bopper, Buddy Holly, the Willows, LaVern Baker, the Quin-Tones, Johnny Otis (with Little Esther), and the Five Satins. Other featured artists range from the famous (Roy Brown, Wynonie Harris, and Hank Ballard’s Midnighters) to the obscure, ensuring a satisfying compilation both for collectors and anyone looking for a slightly different way to celebrate the Royal Wedding.
