Another 2 disc compilation from `One Day Music' this time featuring some of the early output (1955 to 62) of `Crest' records based on Sunset Boulevard.in Hollywood.
The sound quality is good overall (but never great - 3 or 4 tracks have distortion on them), there is no booklet as usual - just a one sided intro to the label.
Cd.1. (58.08mins) Disc one is a real mix of genres and a real mix of talent from the hugely talented, world renowned Eddie Cochran to virtual unknowns such Troy Talton (who's tribute track `Marilyn' is really rather good.). This cd also contains the original version of Glen Campbell's `Turn around, look at me' (Crest 1087). Other highlights are Vern Stovall's `Long black limousine' and `Yea!Yea' by Tony Casanova. 8/10
Cd. 2. (58.05mins) Disc two is more of the same kind of mix but less enjoyable than the first disc. Good to hear `Miracle of love' by Glen Campbell. 6/10.
Overall a good listen, you can't go wrong at this low budget price. 7.5/10
