Product Description

Product Description

Mention of Monument Records to a Sixties music fan will usually bring the immediate response: 'Roy Orbison'. This was indeed the label on which the classic rock balladeer relaunched his career. But that two-word answer would be to ignore a lesser-known but talented roster of singers and musicians who made the label their home. 'Monument Is Artistry' was the label's slogan, and the 40 tracks showcased here more than back up that session.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another in the label retrospectives... 12 Mar 2014
Monument Records are best known for releasing early Roy Orbison records but they had a much wider span of music and a pretty long run as a label. This latest issue is a winner both for the feel of the late 1950s and early 1960s and the sound transfers make for easy listening. The liner notes are informative and the artwork attractive with some small photographs of the artists included.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Advert For Music Diversity. 5 July 2014
Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this compilation. I've been impressed with all of the One - Day Music series, but this one seems a little different for some reason. Obviously the 6 Orbison tracks are well known, as are the Billy Grammer items ( two of them anyway ), and one of my all-time fave doo-wops "That Lucky Old Sun" is here with the usual batch of relatively unknown artistes and recordings. Very diverse, and there are some nice instrumentals, incl. Hawaiian & South American arrangements.Hearing "The Thing" transported me back to my Childrens Favourites days- wonderful!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Tonight Could Be The Night!!!! 9 Aug 2014
Yes, we all know what Roy Orbison did! No doubt his tracks have always outdone anything Monument produced, but check out the Velvets. Orbison himself discovered them and brought them to Monument. They were four high school students with their English teacher Virgil Johnson from West Texas; very unusual territory for doo-wop. "Tonight (Could Be The Night)" was their smash hit in 1960, featured here. Their other tracks were and are very underrated; "Lana" was cut by Orbison himself.

Other notable tracks here are "Tobacco Road" by Bobby Brinkley; not the original, but I admit is quite good. I like it even better than the commercial Nashville Teens version later in 1964. Bob Moore's instrumental "Mexico" was a Top Ten hit in 1962; his orchestra offered the backing on many of the label's tracks.

Anyway, good overview of the Monument label!
