Format: Audio CD
I have to declare an interest. I'm hopelessly in love with the London-American label and that love affair started as far back as 1957. It wasn't for several years later that I rationalised it; if it hadn't been for this label I would have been without more than half the music that I worshipped in the 50's. That is without Chuck, Jerry Lee, the Ev's, Carl Perkins, Little Richard, Fats, and loads more. London American was the route through which so much fantastic music reached me. OK, drool over; now let's get on with the review.

I've noted some degree of controversy on this series from One Day Music so I thought I'd have a look at them and see what I thought. Results below:

1. I note the legitimate objection raised against the use of alternate or re-recorded tracks, without, of course, any warning. I can certainly sympathise with this. If one remembers a track in a certain way, particularly from 50 plus years ago, then that way is the right way and any change is wrong (regardless of the technical merit of the change). The fact that you're given no warning of this (plus the fact that in the vast majority of cases the original could and should have been used) would seem to add insult to injury. I certainly wouldn't condone this and don't see that it's my job to defend One Day. However I feel I should add that it would appear to occur on a minority of tracks leaving a goodly number correctly present for one's enjoyment at a cheap price. Indeed the words cheap and cheerful come to mind. Maybe not quite as c and c as the 101 Hits type albums but getting close.

2. The One Day album selection looks as if it's largely based on track chart position either in the UK or, more likely, the US.

not been disappointed by any.
All the discs have a very good selection of the material available in the 50's: the recorded quality is fine - unlike so many cobbled-together compilations.
I recommend the set for anyone interested in either reliving their past or wanting to know something about musical history. Great stuff.

If I had been alive in the 50s I would have been broke for buying all of the great music that came out of the era. Although I'm only in my 40s and as my cousin likes to tell me I should not remember this time for music. Pat Boone, The Chordettes and little richard I got use to listening to when I was little and I was told ray charles would always put me to sleep. A Great collection of music in volumes from 56 to 62 possible I hope they keep these issues coming as they are fantastic.
