Product Description

Product Description

Listen to the music of a label that, despite sharing the name of America's leading toothpaste, was good for the ears! Unlike other independent record companies of the time, Crest was wideranging in its musical scope; some said it was trying to rival Liberty Records, a major pop label of the day. This aim may have been overambitious, but while it was around Crest put out entertaining music in several genres. It had two real giants on its books in Eddie Cochran and Glen Campbell, and their fingerprints are all over this compilation.

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

Got some great songs on this set, including several rare sides by one of the all time best singers, Johnny Maestro. The sound on this set is way better than the last few sets from One Day. Worth every cent.
