Product Description

Product Description

Founded in 1943 by Syd Nathan, who it's said 'changed American music and, in turn, changed the world', King Records was one of the major early pace-setters in the R&B field. In 1962 the year this compilation is focused on, we see the giants of rhythm and blues, James Brown, Hank Ballard and Little Willie John chalk up innumerable R&B-chart entries on King. As well as this we have lesser known acts such as Otis Williams who supplies our title track.

Format: Audio CD
ONLY YOUNG ONCE THE KING RECORDS STORY 1962 is two CDs of Original recordings by the original artists.
All of the tracks have passed the magic 50 years old and hence the cheap as chips release making this a real bargain.

BUT Amazon have cramped up all the names making it really hard to see what is actually on the Cds.

SO this is not so much a review more an aid to seeing whats on this excellent release.

Enjoy.

king records have always had a good reputation.
james brown's early recordings are a revelation.
there are a few other well known artists here, many are new to me.
anyone with an interest in original blues and r&b should buy this collection.
at least half of the tracks are excellent, the rest are very interesting.

The title of 'The King records Story' is misleading unless the 'Not now music' label are going to release more of King Records catalogue. My usual complaint concerning the clarity and quality of the tracks is evident. Track 13 'Harem Girl' by Red Prysock is particularly poor, However for the price the double cd is still a bargain with some rare rhythm and blues for the avid collector.

For the novice I would recommend buying any of the 'Vampi Soul' Hipshakers series or Ace records ' King New Breed Rhythm and Blues, (before purchasing this CD) Vampi Soul and Ace have produced great quality CD's and these will be a better introduction to this genre of king Records material.
