In Concert At Pacoima Jr. High

In Concert At Pacoima Jr. High von Ritchie Valens
Veröffentlicht: Dec 1960
Label: Rhino/Del-Fi
In Concert At Pacoima Jr. High, released in the wake of Valens' 1959 death, is a wonderfully odd product of early rock 'n' roll frenzy. It opens with an intensely earnest introduction from manager Bob Keane. In addition to thanking fans for their continued loyalty, he explains the mishmash nature of the album: four raw live tracks, recorded at his client's former junior high no less, plus a smattering of outtakes and alternative versions. The music is, of course, fantastic. Much is made about the mythology surrounding Valens' demise, but setting that aside, the guy flat-out rocked.
