Freddy "Boom Boom" Cannon -- as he came to be known for the trademark pounding drums and pulsating rhythm of his singles -- was a Massachusetts native who became a star on the local Boston scene in the late '50s before being "discovered" by the late, great, Dick Clark who got him signed to Philadelphia's Swan Records. Following a string of fairly successful singles, Cannon really hit the big-time with his 1962 classic, "Palisades Park" -- the title-track to this very album. A tribute to the famous New Jersey amusement park, this classic early '60s rocker was penned by none other than Chuck Berry. As the music critic and legendary rocker Cub Koda once wrote, "Freddy Cannon was a true believer, a rocker to the bone." You need no further evidence of that than this classic LP.
