2.0 out of 5 stars So-so sound and not all originals
I don't know who does their mastering, however, like a lot of One Day's releases, a number of these tracks sound strangely muddy and lacking in crispness. Very odd, as many of the songs are commonly available on other CDs in pristine sound. Leroy Van Dyke's "AUCTIONEER' and Dodie Steven's "PINK SHOELACES' are not the 50s hit versions, but later 60s stereo remakes which...

Chills And Fever

THE DOT RECORDS STORY

1955-1962

75 ORIGINAL RECORDINGS
DIGITALLY REMASTERED ON 3 CDs

These sets really are a steal at this price.

Why are these releases so reasonably priced I hear you ask?

The simple reason that these sets are as cheap as chips is that the tracks are public domain.

That means the rights to the music has gone and any old Dick or Harry can release them.

The bad news for the previous rights holders' means good news for us, the buyers for if the price is too high we will not buy.
So the sets are at a more than reasonable price.
Next year the law changes to fall in line with the Americans and the 50 year rule will be finished but that will apply only to stuff released after 1963.
(Thanks to AJ Taylor for putting me right)

But Amazon have scrunched up all the tracks making it hard for people to read which tracks let alone which artist is on so I've spaced them out making it easier to read.

2.0 out of 5 stars So-so sound and not all originals, 21 Dec 2013

I don't know who does their mastering, however, like a lot of One Day's releases, a number of these tracks sound strangely muddy and lacking in crispness. Very odd, as many of the songs are commonly available on other CDs in pristine sound. Leroy Van Dyke's "AUCTIONEER' and Dodie Steven's "PINK SHOELACES' are not the 50s hit versions, but later 60s stereo remakes which both artists did later in their careers. (The originals were mono-only recordings). The old adage "You get what you pay for" certainly applies here. On the plus side, if you're not fussed about sound quality, there are some rarities here at a low price, including Roy Tann's 1957 rocker 'Hot Rod Queen' and Don & His Roses "Leave Those Cats Alone".

This review is from: Chills & Fever: The Dot Records Story (Audio CD)
If you are a lover of nostalga and love listening to the old records, this set includes them as well as many good tracks that were not as popular.
