I thought I knew the music of the decade between 1955-1965 pretty well, but this set contains some things I'd never heard of. Of course the title track by Ray Charles and tracks like Apache by the impeccable Shadows, The Royal Teens garage band hit "Short Shorts" and quite a few others on here are 60s gems whose over-familiarity perhaps overshadows their quality. But, what about some of these other tracks:

"Oh What a Baby" by the Tonettes - that is pure early 60s from start to end, so full of 60s that it teeters on the edge of being naff and cliched, but never quite falls over into it and consequently rates with me as a great discovery. Bryan Hyland's "I'll Never Stop Wanting You" - great slice of 60s balladeering, Gypsy Woman by the Impressions, Barry Mann's "Who Put the Bomp" (lost in the UK due to the Viscounts, as I now learn, inferior cover version), "Bertha Lou" by Clint Miller is a great little driving song (why was that never a hit?) - and so it goes on.

There is some painful stuff on here - did Johnny Nash *really* need to do that lounge version of Herman Hupfield's 'Casablanca' song "As Time Goes By"? But hey, this box set is a voyage of discovery and there's more good (or at least interesting) stuff than bad.

Sound quality is mostly superb. Good to hear such great transfers of Danny & The Juniors two hits and actually there's not a track on here that's lacking in the technical quality department - full marks to all concerned on that.

Highly recommended if you want to revisit the bright lights of this era, and perhaps probe some of its darker more neglected corners too.

A double disc gem from 'One Day Music' records, which is neatly packaged (but without a booklet - which is to be expected at this value for money price tag). The sound quality is very good indeed. This compilation is from the mid fifties label - ABC-Paramount and gives us 50 tracks that cover lots of genres; Teen Pop, Rockabilly, Rock n' Roll, Doo Wop and everything in between. It's a mix of well known American and British classics - 'Diana' by Paul Anka, 'Hit the road Jack' by Ray Charles and 'Living Doll' by Cliff and lesser heard tracks.

Cd 1. (59.42mins) Tracks from 1953 - 1961 but mostly late 50's early 60's. Apart from the well worn classics - 'I'm hungry for your love' by Danny Hill is very good, as is 'I want you' by Jackie Lee Cochran. Nice to hear the original version of 'War Paint' by Barry Mann instead of The Brook Brothers UK 1961 hit. Overall 8/10.

Cd 2. (59.11mins) Tracks from 1957 - 1961 but mostly late 50's early 60's. Great tracks by Ray Charles, Paul Anka, Llyod Price mix with lesser known arists. A couple of Doo Wop standouts 'Bring back your heart' by the Del-Vikings and Don't Laugh at me' by the Dubs. Overall a slightly better disc 8.5/10.

Overall, a well put together compilation with no added thrills or spills except great music. Highly recommened.

This is an interesting collection and that does not mean that I am damning it with faint praise. There's a lot to like here. There a number of tracks which will be familiar by artists such as Ray Charles, Paul Anka, Danny and the Juniors, Cliff Richard, Lloyd Price and the Shadows. There a number of of tracks which were hits in the United States but not here of later covered by Britsh artists. Early Carole King is of interest and Johnny Nash's version of As Time Goes By is worth the price alone. Well worth more than one listen.

All in all a good cross section of the ABC Paramount Label's back catalogue. The Packaging is well presented and this compilation will save many of us collectors having to play the original 45's. One Day Music are doing a great job of bringing us rare collectables and classics on their New Label C.D.s Keep 'em coming please...

This item was not as expected. However it was good to hear so many blasts from the past and I did enjoy listening to it.

As in the title. Proper gift for your dad/uncle or anybody interested in the ABC Paramount recording studio music. Good price for the music inside.
