Love Me Or Leave Me
The Bethlehem Records Story
1958 - 1962
I is on 3 CDS BUT Amazon have `scrunched' all the tracks and artists together which makes it hard to see which artist is by which track and vice versa.
So I've cleaned it up and spaced it out for you.
Grab these discs while you can because next year the laws on copy write will tighten up and fall in line with the Americans (God Bless `em).
(Now all we need to do is for them to stop putting region 2 on UK DVD releases to compensate?)

If you are cutting and pasting ignore the last track on CD3

Virtually a jazz label Bethlehem was where Nina Simone started out.
Julie London cut tracks for the label which were issued after her Liberty hits in 1957 when the label was a year old
This is one of the least expected in the One Day label series
Eventually the label branched into rock and country but here its the jazz recordings
It ran until 1970 with a 3 year gap in the 60s

This is a wonderful cross-section of mainstream jazz (with a little blues, r&b, and pop) of the late '50's and early 60's, more than fairly representing a small label that produced some of the most enjoyable sides of that time period. There aren't any challenges to mainstream tastes here, but that's more than OK. Although the sonics are sometimes problematic with releases like this, nearly all of these cuts sound impeccable and seem to have been mastered from the original tapes. Enjoy!!

A nice collection with a quite a few artists that I had not heard of before. Sound quality is good and if you are into middle of the road jazz and swing this could be for you.

I bought this as a part of a package and was not aware of many of the artists, an education of a good quite alternative label of its day

I wasn't sure what to expect from this disc as I bought it without knowing anything about Bethlehem Records. However, it is a fine eclectic mix of music from several different sources and is guaranteed to entertain from the word go.
