A varied mix of music released on the Roulette label is on offer here. There are well known hits by Jimmy Rodgers, Buddy Knox, The Playmates and Joey Dee, amongst others, plus lesser known recordings by the likes of Charlie Gracie, Jimmy Jones, Frankie Lymon and Georgia Gibbs . Interspersed, are a whole raft of recordings by artistes whom most pop music followers might be challenged to identify - Chuck Reed, Jimmy Lloyd, The Chapparals and Jimmy Isle, for example. Yes. There are a few dud tracks in the mix, but that is totally to be anticipated. But the quality of the reproduction of the music is high and the interest factor of these historic recordings even higher. That, coupled with being offered at a very reasonable price, makes this 50 track compilation excellent value for money.

I really only bought this for the Rock-A-Teens title track but the other 49
are a great selection, mixing a few well known tunes with rarer and unheared
material.Well done One Day Music, another bargain!

I had not realised that Charlie Gracie came [ in part ] from that label and there were some other interesting artists whom I had never encountered at the time of their original release. These old compilations are always worth a look and a purchase because they invariably bring out something of interest.

Many of us associate rock'n'roll in its first incarnation, very strongly or even exclusively, with that highly talented group of artists who came to prominence in the mid to late fifties - Elvis, Jerry Lee, Little Richard, etc. None of those appear here. With no intended disrespect to Ronnie Hawkins, he's the closest we get in this compilation.

But in other respects the album covers the (wide) genre rather well. There are plenty of rockabillies and doo woppers and their portions are of good size and are roughly equal in size (though I haven't actually counted). Goodies can be found in these chunks of the 2 disc set but the rockabilly fan will already have some. There are a few nice and chunky New Orleans sounding cuts from Joe Jones plus three / four rock instros - it's four if you ignore the minimalist vocals on the Rocka-A-Teens delightfully primitive "Woo Hoo".

There's a relatively small amount of what I'd term teen pop. One always has to remember that even in the height of the rocking fifties much of the hit parade (particularly in the UK) contained teen pop, novelty songs, and easy listening cum lounge. By far the best of the teen pop included here comes from Jimmie Rodgers who was almost a household name at the time but is largely forgotten now. His cuts, Honeycomb" and "Kisses sweeter than wine" are excellent examples of a unique mix of folk, easy listening and teen pop. No one else did it as well.

Another gent in this set, Charlie Gracie also had his moment of fame somewhere around 1958. Unfortunately by the time the tracks here appeared Charlie had fallen from grace in spite of (or because of?) two label changes.

This record company like many others, is taking advantage of Europe's out of copyright pre 1963 recording legislation.
However in the last year, this record company has, it appears, stopped re-mastering the recordings and puts them out with all the warts that have been acquired since they were last aired/used.
This is a real shame, as this series of discs to the same quality of those on the (UK) ACE label would be well worth twice the asking price. But not these here.

50 tracks on 2CD's from Roulette, so contains the inevitable "Party doll" from Buddy Knox and "I got a rocket in my pocket" from Jimmy Lloyd. However also some nice lesser known tracks from such as Frankie Lymon, The Cognacs, The Heartbeats, and The Techniques, which makes this set worth a listen.

Another great mix of songs and artists from the past. These artists could sing unlike some of the so called singers of today.
