I was more tha pleased to see the issue of this 3cd set, as the title suggests, this is what it was like before The Beatles changed the music scene forever. Some collectors may have the original single cd series issued a couple or so years ago, I'm sure I read somewhere that these single cd's were now changing hands for a lot more than the original price, but this a 3cd set at a bargain price, is more than welcome. Some of the early tracks may appear to be watered down a little compared to the US versions of these songs, but great to hear them all the same. If you were a listener to Saturday Club on the old Light Programme, a lot of the tracks will be familiar, most of the artistes would have featured on a regular basis. So many interesting tracks, a total of 90 tracks in all, so, excellent value for money, and as some of the tracks are over 50 years old, the sound quality is excellent. Full marks too, for the very informative booklet which gives a lot of information which is sadly lacking on a lot of cd sets these days, also pictures of the stars of the day. I was tempted to give it 5 stars, perhaps with a few more plays, I may change my mind.
