Shake, Rattle & Roll

Genre: Soundtracks; Lead Performers: B.B. King, Chante Moore, Various Artists; Producer (group): MCA

One might expect a TV miniseries about the birth of rock to spawn a killer soundtrack of classics. Instead, this dud offers by-the-numbers remakes by ’90s artists and generic new tunes. Aside from B.B. King’s languid Dylan cover and Chante Moore’s charming Motown knockoff, it’s hard to imagine this appealing to anyone interested in rock.
