Product Description

It was 1975 and a mere 24 years since Ike Turner lit the blue touch paper on rock’n’roll with the incendiary ‘Rocket 88’, when a small independent record company emerged from a couple of second-hand record stores in London. It was just before the fuse was lit on another stage in the rock’n’roll story with the emergence of punk rock and Chiswick Records helped strike the match - commencing with the release of the Count Bishops’ ‘Speedball’ EP. With the same people at its head, the label evolved into Ace Records and they are proud to be celebrating their 30th anniversary in 2005.

Ace has become the leading in-depth catalogue company in the world and has issued a vast amount of the best and most important music released in the US from the time of that first Ike Turner recording to the launch of their own company. That crucial period forms the core of the extensive Ace catalogue.

They have often wandered off this central path, with excursions into World Music, some home-made recordings of local acts and have investigated Beat music from Belfast to Tokyo.

But it is at the heart and soul of rock’n’roll that you will find Ace putting out that wild and frantic, deep and romantic, funky and punky music that will sure nuff turn you on!

This is basically a sampler for CDs in Ace's catalogue covering 50s rock'n'roll and related styles - ignore the track list beginning with Elmore James given here, it's for the Blues & R&B disc from the same series.

Most of the artists are pretty obscure, with the only tracks I'd heard before by Link Wray and Etta James. But the overall standard is incredibly high, it's all great fun. Buy with confidence.

Happy Birthday, ACE 28 Dec 2006
By Annie Van Auken - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
30TH BIRTHDAY CELEBRATION * DOO-WOP AND ROCK 'N' ROLL is ACE record's opportunity to advertise 20 of their back-catalog albums, by offering a selection from each. The typical profuse ACE liner notes have been replaced here by a full-color foldout sheet that pictures these 20 CDs. Despite this limitation, DOO-WOP AND ROCK 'N' ROLL is a fine and varied collection of tunes. The songs are obscure but interesting; energy level throughout is high. This is the music that drove parents out of their minds way back when. Sound quality of the tracks is typical ACE-- the very best around.
