Product Description

Product Description

After a short break, while Ace's musical Tardis underwent its annual MOT and service, they're back on board and reversing into 1964 for the latest instalment in the popular London American Year By Year series. By the mid-1960s, US hit makers were playing second fiddle to home-grown talent on the UK charts, thanks largely to the arrival of Beatlemania. But significant numbers of record buyers still looked to the US charts for their weekly fix of seven-inch vinyl, and London still remained the most important source for American hits for most of us. As ever, London's repertoire for 1964 remained eclectic and brought us everything from Phil Spector s Wall Of Sound to Louis Armstrong, from country pop crossovers to old London favourites like Del Shannon and Jerry Lee Lewis. The label released fewer singles in 1964 than in previous years, but the ratio of good to not so good ones still weighed heavily in favour of the former and here are 28 excellent examples of what London was all about. As ever, the content has been chosen to avoid significant overlap with existing Ace CDs, and most are making their Ace debut in this compilation. Sixteen of the 28 tracks were Hot 100 hits in the USA more than half of the total content. Wherever possible they have used the same tape that was used to master the original 45, and all tracks are heard in glorious mono, just as they were on those fantastic black and silver label singles.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic! 31 May 2013
By Amazon Customer TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a quality compilation from 'Ace' records - certain other reissue labels won't dare reissue any tracks beyond 1962 as they will have to put their hands in their wallets - well done 'Ace' - a company that respects artist's and gives em' their dues. There are 28 tracks on the compilation all in glorious Mono (72.16 minutes long). The sound quality is excellent as always. This is the 9th in the series so far and is one of the best. I can understand one reviewers annoyance with no Roy Orbison tracks but lets face it - anyone who remotely loves music has these awesome tracks already. It's a diverse collection as usual - Hits, misses, classics and rarities sit side by side. There are great tracks by Del Shannon, Terry Stafford, Ben E. King, the Crystals and a whole lot more - 'Little lonely summer girl' by David Box is fantastic (with its mixture of elements - surf music, an early Spector production and sounding like a 'Crickets' track). There is a quality 24 page colour booklet that's packaged with label scans, pictures and track by track informative liner notes. Overall, a great compilation with great sound quality (except: one of the best tracks 'Baby come home' by Ruby & the Romantics sounds like a disc dub - with slight distortion and audible clicks). Still highly recommended though, 4.5 stars would be more accurate.

4.0 out of 5 stars Days gone down 1 July 2013
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
The year of the British Invasion didn't see that much change re American music.The Chartbusters for instance had a pedigree which went back to the rockabilly of Bobby Poe & the Poekats and they made the Top 30 with a Beatles soundalike.London also issued singles by John & Paul and the You Know Who Group as labels tried to convince collectors they had Beatles connections
Noticable here are a few tracks which were withdrawn from the shops but then Ace have issued a CD with a mere handful of Top 20 hits and the only chart topper in music which could have survived in the 20s-Hello Dolly by Louis Armstrong

4.0 out of 5 stars '64 AND NO ROY ORBISON? NO WAY!! 29 May 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Latest in the series of London American tribute cd's ,but one with a whopping great hole in it! How anyone can issue a cd that omits London America's biggest seling artiste of the year with 2 number 1's,3 top 10 and 4 top 20 discs beats me!That said it's all top notch stuff and there is clearly scope for a volume 2-if only to rectify that howler!!
