Let It Rock (1973 compilation)

Let It Rock is a 1973 compilation album issued to celebrate the 25th anniversary of Atlantic Records. Featuring tracks from the mid 1950s to the mid 1970s, the album highlights the blues and soul roots of the label and offers glimpses of how those roots had developed over time. It is notable for its inclusion of early tracks by artists later to become major acts, and of original versions of tracks later to become classics. It was compiled by Charlie Gillett and Dave Laing (editor of "Let It Rock" magazine), who also provided the sleeve notes.

The Album Cover

The sleeve was designed by David Willis and Flying Colours and features a humorous take on the Statue Of Liberty. Instead of a torch, she holds up a microphone typical of those used in the mid-1950s, and flashes her legs.
