The Complete Johnny Kidd & The Pirates

If you believe British rock started with The Beatles, The Rolling Stones, The Who and The Kinks, then you need to spend some quality time with The Complete Johnny Kidd & The Pirates. Scoring a string of twangy, reverb-soaked hits in a pre-British Invasion United Kingdom in the early 1960s, the highly influential group was as adept at teen idol balladry ("Steady Date") as they were genuine rock 'n' roll ("Feelin'"). Their most memorable tune is most definitely "Shakin' All Over," which The Who helped transform into a rock standard with the brutal rendition found on Live At Leeds.
