All of the items in the Essential Rockabilly series are a great value without any doubt. As I read in some other review the low price is only possible because the copyright of these recordings has already run out of it's 50 years duration. The fact that these are no officially licensed releases is substantiated by the fact that the cover artwork although sporting a very beautiful retro look does not incorporate any of the original label logos.
Assuming that there were no licensing costs for these old recordings I am wondering why they left out many of the best known hits like i.e. "Be-Bop-A-Lula". Gene Vincents biggest hit was recorded on Capitol Records in 1956 and initially released as the flip side of "Woman Love" (which CAN be found on this CD set).

I've collected all the Essential Rockabilly compilations and they are all great quality with a cracking mix on each. The Capitol Story has to be the pick of a good bunch. Give this a listen to especially if you're into Gene Vincent, Wanda Jackson etc you won't be disappointed.
