5.0 out of 5 stars An unexpected but more that welcome volume 11., 8 Sept. 2007

This review is from: The Golden Age Of American Rock 'N' Roll Volume 11 (Audio CD)
What is there to say the legendary "Golden Age of American Rock & Roll" from Ace Records that has not been said already? Not much i dont think.
Volume 1 came in 1991,Volume 2 in 1992 and so on until volume 10 in 2002.
That i assumed was end of story.But now in 2007 volume 11 arrives upon the
music scene.And what a cracker it is.
As always sound quality is nothing short of superb.Just listen to "Jim Dandy" by Lavern Baker,"Ruby Baby" (in stereo) by Dion,"Love Is Strange"
by Mickey & Sylvia,"Pretend" by Carl Mann,"This Little Girls Gone Rockin,"by Ruth Brown,not to mention "Goodbye Baby" by Jack Scott.You may have some of these tracks on other collections but none im sure as good as these Master Tape transfers.Audio restoration just doesnt come any better.
Superb !!
I have all the previous 10 volumes of this series and play them constantly.I recommend them each and every one.

You may also be interested in similar collections Ace Records have released,such as "Radio Gold"(4 volumes),"Early Girls" (4 volumes),"Chartbusters USA"(3 volumes),"Teenage Crush" (5 volumes) and "The Golden Age of American Popular Music" (1 volume).There is also a Country Special of "The Golden Age of American Rock & Roll".

I have all these in my collection put together over time.I can recommend them all.Listen and enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Up to standard, 21 Sept. 2007
This review is from: The Golden Age Of American Rock 'N' Roll Volume 11 (Audio CD)
Ace has issued over the years possibly the best collections of American music covering all bases from rockabilly to high school pop to uptown soul.Fortunately the Golden Age ends by their definition around the mid 60s so it saves having to put up with more reruns of Motown or Stax.
These sets work on 2 levels really-the fact packed booklets and the more obscure items such as the Bubbling Under series.Perhaps a future series could issue No Hit Wonders-after all the bulk of it was as good as the stuff on the Top 100 and a lot of collectors are very interested in Musical failure.
Its also good to see this is not Rock Critics stuff-I don't need to be told yet again that Pat Boone was ripping off black music.Which he wasn't as many now realise.Everyone is treated equally because these are for a new generation

5.0 out of 5 stars Congratulations to ACE!, 12 Oct. 2007

This review is from: The Golden Age Of American Rock 'N' Roll Volume 11 (Audio CD)
After their wonderful series of the Golden Era of American Rock & Roll
(10 Volumes) ACE suddenly surprises us 5 years later with an 11th volume.
Like they always do, the extensive 28 page liner notes help us to find
out the whereabouts of each and every song and that makes these series
unique (Teeanager Crush series + all the other American Rock & Roll
releases). Even if the contents of a volume may have minor hits or
the selection used isn't as good as others, these booklets make each
and every one of them a 5 star rating! The highlights of this Volume 11
are Lavern Baker's Jim Dandy (one of the first real authentic R&R songs)
Lavender Blue by Sammi Turner (never seen before on a compilation), I
Need Your Lovin' by Conway Twitty (No not that one..), Pretend by Carl
mann, the incredible Drip Drop by the early Drifters (later covered
by Dion who had a bigger success with it), the original Let The Good
Times Roll etc. etc.
Like all the other 10, just prepare yourself and put on your rockin'
shoes!

This review is from: The Golden Age Of American Rock 'N' Roll Volume 11 (Audio CD)
Volume 11!keeps the Sunday rockin' on local radio down in Pontypridd. Every volume that comes out is alaways welcome. Running an "Old Gold" and a 50's and 60's show never short of "ammo". A lot of people are only just becoming aware of these fantastic c/d's.
