Albenrezension

During their brief four-year existence, the Richmond, VA, teen combo the Rock-A-Teens released a mere 13 tracks, one of which was the Top 20 single "Woo-Hoo," best remembered for its near wordless vocal refrain. Ten of those 13 tunes appear on this CD compilation, and one has to wonder why Collectables didn't just bite the bullet and license the other three songs while they were at it (especially since this collection clocks in at less than 24 minutes). Still, this disc is as strong a portrait of the Rock-A-Teens' virtues as one can hope to find these days, capturing their raw energy and youthful enthusiasm with ease. Divided between spunky instrumentals and sharper vocal numbers (including "Janis Will Rock," a tribute to hometown gal Janis Martin, and "That's My Mama," in praise of a cooler-than-usual parent), Woo-Hoo makes clear these five guys weren't virtuoso musicians, but they sure knew how to make with the rhythm, and what guitarists Bobby Walke and Vic Mizelle lacked in finesse they more than made up for in real rock drive. The songs (mostly originals) are solid stuff, and Mizelle's vocals are admirably tough and fiery when he chooses to actually sing something. The Rock-A-Teens deserve to have their full recorded legacy released on disc (especially since it would run less than 40 minutes), but in the meantime Woo-Hoo is plenty of fun and makes the important point that they had more than one cool song in their repertoire.

One of the genuinely compelling true primitive rock 'n roll acts of the late 1950's, the Rock-a-Teens (not to be confused with the identically-named 1990's outfit) generated some real excitement with their one major claim to fame, the bracing single of "Woo-Hoo" b/w "Untrue" for Roulette in 1959. As legend—probably close to the truth has it—the band cut the stomping A-side and its companion in the back room of a record store and sold it to the...
