(Scroll Down For Purchase Links)

1. Rock Around The Clock

Not the first rock and roll song by any means but it was the one that brought rock and roll into mainstream radio. This is a straight ahead 12 bar blues so perfect for practicing your blues and rock licks. This version available for download was inspired by the 1954 recording released by Bill Haley and the Comets.

2. Sea Cruise

Big commercial success came with Frankie Ford’s 1959 recording of Sea Cruise. He came from the Louisiana, New Orleans area and his music really shows it, much like that of Fats Domino. His version is soaked with background accompanying saxophone parts played by a full saxophone section.

3. Red River Rock

Johnny and the Hurricanes came out with this instrumental hit in the late 50’s. Their version featured the organ playing the lead and then a guitar solo. Although inspired heavily by their version, this download is arranged with the sax in mind doing most of the lead and featured playing a double solo section as well.

4. Johnny B. Goode

Originally recorded and written by Chuck Berry this has to be one of the most recognizable songs of all time. He released it in 1958 and it has been played by just about everyone and recorded by many artists as well. This version was inspired by Chuck’s as well but features the saxophone right up there with the guitar, sharing the solos and playing the lead.
