Format: Audio CD
Looking at the track list for this set there are several which initially catch the eye.

Big Jay McNeely's "There is something on your mind" is the first. An intriguing song and performance. I've no memory of it ever being released in the UK - it may not have been - but it's been covered by loads of US artists. The first thing to say about it is that the vocalist is not Big Jay, it's a guy called Little Sonny Warner. It's probably Little Sonny's main claim to fame. He did go on to work with James Brown, Etta James etc. but doesn't have anything significant out in his own name. Big Jay was a honking sax player and band leader. The performance is blues ballad cum early soul and it`s just marvellous. It was a also a record that could have been influential on the swamp pop guys down in Louisiana.

"Say Man" from Bo Diddley deserves a mention. I bought it way back when and wondered what I'd got hold of. The whole number consists of Bo and his maracas man, Jerome rapping over a kind of latin rhythm. Doesn't sound anything like so weird now. Bo certainly was an innovator (and a big rhythm man).

"Sea of Love" from Phil Phillips is the next one I'd single out. It's a charming slab of what we now call, swamp pop from Phil whose original name was John Phillip Baptiste. Phil/john also wrote it in association with his record label owner George Khoury (though that could be a euphemism since record label owners often appeared in song credits in those days). After early success locally the record was leased to Mercury for wider distribution. It was promoted as coming from Phil Phillips and the Twilights. I may be wrong but I think at least some of Cookie and the Cupcakes appeared on it.

I am constantly searching for excellent audio quality recordings of popular 50's to 70's music & have purchased 100's of cd compilations in an endeavour to get the best possible recordings that exist.I estimate the vast majority of the recordings here are the very best available currently compared to any other compilations i have listened too."Sixteen candles" by the Crests featured here is the original recording & is head & shoulders above anything i have heard audio quality wise.As one reviewer correctly pointed out one track is mislabelled as "You got what it takes " by Marv Johnson , the track is actually "Move two mountains" by Marv Johnson.Ironically this is a bonus as "Move two mountains" is in exceptional rare stereo audio quality & a much better song anyway.
After listening & buying this cd , i have purchased all the other releases from the same series, solely because of the excellent audio quality.Thank you to the person who did the audio mastering on this compilation!!

One Day Music have two "Cruisin' Story" titles out at the moment covering the years 1959 and 1960. They are both pretty good with an excellent mixture of titles and all in reasonable sound quality given that these are "out of copyright" releases and therefore not taken from the original master tapes.

However, it pains me to have to say that the lack of attention to detail that seems to dog the footsteps of this type of release is once again in evidence. In this case one of the tracks is not the one advertised - Track 22 0n CD 2 is supposed to be "You Got What It Takes" by Marv Johnson but is actually the same singers September 1960 release "You Got To Move Two Mountains".

It seems a shame that the same effort that is put into the packaging (this set has an excellent and eye catching 1950s comic book look) can't be extended to the actual music.

The Cruisin' Story 1959A Glorious collection of Rockin' hits, Although these tracks are available on many compilations, The main difference is, they have re-mastered this album to the highest stereo quality I've ever heard, It's like hearing them all over again, I'm hearing things i never heard before on these tracks.

Highly recommended, Great Album. Well Done..
