ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
BILLY BUCKETT - A ROCK ’N’ ROLL LOVE STORY is a musical with drama, pathos, and a delightfully daffy British sense of humour, set in small-town England 1959 against the colourful backdrop of the era of Teddy-Boys & Judies, at the dawn of rock ‘n’ roll.

This studio album features vocal and instrumental performances by the creative team behind the musical, Jay Turner & Cath Mundy (aka duo Mundy-Turner).

Following the story of a young mechanic 'from the wrong side of the tracks' who dreams of pop stardom and falls in love with a rich-man's daughter, the musical explores the social mores of the time - the British class system, gender inequity, teenage pregnancy and the generation gap.

Jay Turner's original music rides a 1950’s-inspired pop-pendulum from toe-tapping, hand-clapping, get-to-your-feet-and-dance numbers like ‘Dynamo’, ‘Daddy’ & ‘Who Were You With Last Night?’, to the stunningly romantic ‘Tender Is The Night’, the soulful ‘Feather On The Wind’, and the reflective epiphany of ‘Photographs & Memories’.

Jay & Cath musically-directed two live productions of the show; Beenleigh Theatre Group's world-premiere production in 2013 which won five Gold Coast Area Theatre Awards including Best Musical Direction and Most Nominated Production, and most recently, Footlights Theatrical's 2018 production at Logan Entertainment Centre.

The live album of Footlights Theatrical’s 2018 production “BILLY BUCKETT - LIVE AT THE LEC” is also available to download, featuring the on-stage performances of the 16-strong cast and 6-piece band at the Logan Entertainment Centre before a live audience.

BIRTH OF A MUSICAL
For British singer-songwriter Jay Turner, Billy Buckett has been decades in the making. ”I wrote the story back in 1987, based on people I knew growing up in working class England during the 1950 and 60s,” Jay says.

”I thought it was a book, but then realised it was more likely a stage or screenplay. Since I was a musician, and since it was set in 1959, turning it into a rock ‘n’ roll musical seemed the logical step.”

The resulting set of songs paid homage to Turner’s musical and cultural roots, growing up at a time when Britain was finding the unique musical voice that would soon explode across the world.
