    I finally caught on to what you were meaning, and edited a little. I'm a little slow sometimes.

    I guess you have probably heard some of the early Beatles songs in which they did some covers of some 50's songs like:

    Rock & Roll Music

    Roll over Beethoven

    Long Tall Sally

    Money

    Twist & Shout

    Dizzy Miss Lizzie

    more...

    I figured you have, but they sure put that extra punch in there.

    Did you ever hear John Lennon's Rock and Roll LP? He did some good covers of the original R&R sounds, but not all on there were fast ones. This was released around 1972.

    Creedence C.Revival did some covers of some of the early R&R sounds on some of their albums from about '68 to '72, and really packed a wallop, and they had a few songs of their own, Traveling Band, Molina, and Hey Tonight that was in the early R&R style.

    Buddy Holly, Roy Orbison, Elvis Presley, Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Jerry Lee Lewis, Lonnie Donegan. There's tons of them, just hammer Rock 'N' Roll into Google. The Beatles are NOT rock and roll, they actually killed original rock and roll.

    Johnny B. Goode is a good rock n' roll song.

    BB King

    Bill Haley and the Comets

    Chuck Berry

    Elvis
