Another quality 2 disc release from 'One day Music'. This time taking in the rockin' sounds of Sam Philips label 'Philips International' which was formed in 1957. The tracks date from 1956 to 1960. There's no booklet but there's an intro and writing credits. The sound quality is very good indeed, an excellent job. The first disc is filled with great uptempo Rockabilly & Rock n Roll numbers, the pace never lets up nor does the quality. Some of the best tracks are from Charlie Rich (checkout his 'Smash' recordings from the mid 60's - they're fantastic - a real mix of R&B, Soul and Pop), Carl Mann, Cliff Thomas and Barbara Pitman. Disc 2 isn't nearly as good as disc 1 in my opinion, there's far too many slow numbers but again the standout tracks are from Charlie Rich and Carl Mann. A recommended budget compilation, if you're into Rockabilly, Rock n Roll, R&B all served up and tinged with country, then you'll enjoy this.

GOOD SELECTION OF MATERIAL FROM THE EARLY ROCK AND ROLL DAYS. CROSS SELECTION OF HITS FROM THE PHILLIPS LABEL AND COVERS ALL TASTES. THERE IS THE ODD INCLUSION BUT OVERALL VERY GOOD VALUE. SOUND QUALITY ALSO EXCELLENT.

Fans of Sam Phillips "Sun" label may know some of the tracks on these CD's., such as "Whirlwind, and "Lonely Weekend" Charlie Rich, "Mona Lisa" and "Pretend", Carl Mann, and "Tootsie" Carl McVoy. However there are still quite a few less well known tracks for the fan of this genre. Recommended listening.

One Day records like many others, are 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.

A very good collection of oldies, which is good to reminisce with. Good value for money.

Thought i would give this CD a try considering its very resonable price. I was surprised at the quality of the recordings with a number of artists i had never heard before. A good addition to my collection.
