Reviews & Opinions

CLIFF WHITE, SMASH HITS, MARCH 8-21 1979: Featuring the late sid Vicious on lead shouting, Eddie Cochran's immortal classic is - surprise, surprise - performed as faithfully close to the original as the Pistols could possibly get. 'Course it's slightly heavier but there's no denying that this is '50s rock 'n' roll rather than '70s punk. Bet it'll confuse a good many Teds. The flip, an age-old ditty 'Friggin' In The Riggin'', led by Steve Jones, is childish nonsense.

Additional Notes

Song lengths stated on label are wrong; I have stated correct ones.
