4.0 out of 5 stars This is what it was like before The Beatles. 22 Dec 2010
By G. Hall
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Taking it as a whole 5 May 2011
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
There are now many of these sort of collections of British Beat before the Beatles including about 4 on the Decca label.
And its also rather amazing when you discover what was out there.For musical incompetence there's Larry Page with his covers of Start Movin' and That'll be the day-in fact it was Page's photo on the first sheet music of this song.
There's somebody called Paul Raven who ended up in the 70s as Gary Glitter and among all the covers is the original version of Apache.
Clearly the winners in the originality stakes were Cliff & the Shadows

4.0 out of 5 stars Great stuff 28 Nov 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
An excellent compilation, but what a shame the original multi-CD series on which this is based is no longer available. The original CDs go into much more detail and have comprehensive sleeve notes.
