I'LL GO CRAZY
The Federal Records Story
1955-1960
It is on 2 CDS BUT Amazon have `scrunched' all the tracks and artists together which makes it hard to see which artist is by which track and vice versa.
So I've cleaned it up and spaced it out for you.
Grab these discs while you can because next year the laws on copy write will tighten up and fall in line with the Americans (God Bless `em).
(Now all we need to do is for them to stop putting region 2 on UK DVD releases to compensate?)

If you are cutting and pasting ignore the last track on CD2.

I like these One Day Music compilations, and have bought about 8 of them so far, going mainly for the music of black origin labels. They are great fun, and I love the obscurity and variety of the content. My only complaint is that the sound quality is not always great. There are several tracks on the Federal Records Story that are shockingly bad. Disc two track one, Rockin' Blues by Booker Lee Jr. sounds like a very low grade digital copy. There are better sounding versions on You-tube! But having said that, these are a bargain price and I expect shelling out 2 or 3 times as much for an Ace reissue would be the answer.

So, until the BBC put Mark Lamarr back on the air, these compilations will do for your fix of 50's and early 60's obscurities.

Federal was a subsidiary of King Records; they did mostly Rhythm & Blues and some rockabilly which is featured here. All in all, a pretty good set of James Brown tracks and well-known performers (Hooker, King, Turner). Ike Turner's "Do You Mean It" is highly recommendable.

Beware! "Only You" by the Platters is NOT the version we've been used to hearing for years on the radio. That was the Mercury release. The Platters cut the single for Federal, but was never released; it's featured here. Later when the group moved on to the Mercury label, they re-recorded the song. Featured here is the original. It's okay, but listeners would definitely choose the one they've always enjoyed.

Another original featured here is "Kansas City." Wilbert Harrison's version, released on Fury, was what we've always heard for years, but it was never the original. Sorry for spoiling childhoods!!!

Another track "Itchy Twitchy Feeling" was originally released on Sue Records by Bobby Hendricks. The Swallows' version here is very good and quite similar to the original. The group did a good job of keeping it tight and identical.

Anyway, a good collection of when Rock N' Roll was young, cars were cars and oldies were goodies!!!

Another great double cd from One Day Music. This one contains tracks some of the great artists that recorded for the King subsidery label Federal. For me there is not a bad track on the cd and apart from the well known artists there are some unknown gems to listen to. All in all a great compilation

I now have over 40 of this series of 50s and 60s labels. many of the recordings are typical fluff of the times. But it is interesting to hear artists at the beginning of their careers and there are always little gems on each CD

A very good collection of oldies, which is good to reminisce with. Good value for money.
