 Lorrie and Larry Collins - aka The Collins Kids - were teenage Rockabilly royalty, stars of the prestigious 1950s US TV show Town Hall Party. Child prodigy Larry was already a red hot guitarist at the age of 11, famous for playing a twin-necked Mosrite guitar which was very nearly as big as him, while elder sister Lorrie handled lead vocals and accompanied him on rhythm guitar. They recorded prolifically for the  Columbia label between 1955-61. This compilation features their best-known songs, e. g. 'The Rockaway Rock', 'I'm In My Teens', 'Hop, Skip And Jump', 'Party', 'Hoy Hoy', 'Just Because', 'Mercy', 'Rock Boppin' Baby' and 'Whistle Bait', alongside collectors' rarities like 'Hot Rod', 'Soda Poppin' Around', 'What'cha Gonna Do Now' and 'Ain't You Ever'. Also included as a bonus track is 'Just Because', a previously unreleased a Lorrie Collins duet with Ricky Nelson, from the Ozzie & Harriett TV show in January 1958. This is by far the most comprehensive and intriguing Collins Kids compilation available.
