5.0 out of 5 stars Woo-Hoo and Woopie doo!
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!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not in the same league for sound quality as ACE or Bear Family Records.
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars You are not gambling with this Roulette offering, 15 Jun 2012
By 
Anton Coy "Ant" (Johannesburg, South Africa) - See all my reviews
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Interesting stuff from a small label of the 50s, 21 May 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
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.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Woo Hoo!, 27 Feb 2013

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Woo-Hoo The Roulette Story, 7 Aug 2012

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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Gambler, Winner - and oft-times Loser, 24 May 2012
Good selection of the wide range of music that George Goldner got to be associated with. Hits and Flops sit side by side and you get the impression that George didn't care that much. Like a true gambler he felt that just because you've lost out 15 times in a row that #16 wouldn't at least recoup all your losses. You hedged your bets by making sure that you got your name on the writing credits whether you took part in the actual process or not. Unethical? Maybe, but it made for an interesting release schedule. Worth it if only to fill in some of the gaps in your collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wheel of Fortune, 18 April 2012
The Roulette labels put out a lotta great music from the mid 50s to the end of the 60s when Tommy James kept the label in the limelight.The label has been anthologised many times with seperate ones for the Rama,End and Gee lables (now deleted).This is the first 50 tracker
