Breakfast Blend: The Cochran Brothers

Screenshot 2015-03-04 11.15.54Eddie Cochran became a rock legend. Hank Cochran was not related, and didn’t become a star (but did have a long career as a songwriter and performer, with seven songs that made the country charts), but the two performed as the Cochran Brothers in 1956 and recorded some sides. I’ve been listening to Eddie Cochran a lot lately, but knew nothing about this group until I found these songs on a “greatest hits” album. These tunes weren’t hits when they were made, in Southern California, but what a fantastic rockin’ sound! Eddie, by the way, would be 17 here.
