This has got to be the best single cd of Ritchie Valens around now with the accurate title "The Complete". This is about as complete as it gets for Ritchie on 1 disc with the 2 albums, a live "on the spot" recording at a Jr. High posthumously released after his untimely death and to top it off Unfinished demos. Ritchie was such a great rocker and performer at the young age of 16/17 and by listening to tracks 1 to 23 which cover his 2 albums I wonder what it would have been for him had he lived or survived the plane crash of Feburary 1959. It sounds as if it was going so well for him. But the Jr High performance was an interesting listen because it is the only live performance that's exists although the source that was used isn't all that excellent as explained by Bob Keane who reveals all about this "on the spot" recording.

The Unfinished demos is really worth a listen because you can really hear how Ritchie played his guitar and experimenting different kinds of rhythm etc. But what was new to me was that I did not know that "Malaguena" (Track 33) was a demo unfinished where it appears on some of my other Ritchie best ofs but not mentioning about it being a incomplete demo. Bob Keane introduces each track with a explanation behind the recording and the idea of it etc. This CD is crammed full of Ritchie's work with a running time of just under 80 mins (79min 58sec). If you wish to hear just his greatest hits or aquire a smaller collection I would recommend Music Club's 1995 release "The very best of" which has 22 tracks & great sound mastering.

Or for a larger collection I'd recommend this! Hats off to Jasmine Records for producing a ultimate & definitive collection of Ritchie Valens' work.

This is a superb CD which has all of Richie Valens recorded songs on it. It underlines what a sad loss the premature death of Richie Valens was

Three albums in one from a Rock'n Roll Genius - 'Ritchie' released in his lifetime, 'Ritchie Valens' released just a month after his death and a third album of live tracks and demos. Just listen to the sublime pure Rock'n Roll guitar playing (Wow!) Classic Rock'n Roll in glorious mono - the way it was meant to be heard. Ritchie of course died in the same plane crash that killed the great Buddy Holly and another Rock'n Roll great the Big Bopper. Okay so Buddy Holly may have been the bigger star and argueably a better all round song writer than Ritchie BUT Ritchie was younger and by FAR a much more accomplished guitar player than Buddy (in fact I believe Ritchie was professionally taught unusual for the time)- You will NEVER hear 'hard' Rock'n Roll better than Ritchie on this CD which is just about a complete collection of his work. Buy this now together with the CD Budddy Holly 'From the original mastertapes' and you will find out why they refer to the plane crash that took the lives of Ritchie and Buddy as THE DAY THE MUSIC DIED !
