5.0 out of 5 stars Track Listing-Don't Make The Angels Cry-I've Got A Lot To Learn, 8 Nov 2013

This review is from: For You Alone - The Carlton Records Story (Audio CD)
For You Alone THE CARLTON RECORDS STORY 1958-1962 has 60 ORIGINAL RECORDINGS
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gone with the wind, 9 Nov 2013
This review is from: For You Alone - The Carlton Records Story (Audio CD)
The short lived label issued some great high school pop some of which is here for the first time.
Though Gary Stites original version of Starry Eyes was low down on the hot 100 the song was a No 1 hit in this country for Michael Holiday though sold enough in the States to warrant an album

3 CD set from One Day Music with 60 tracks 1958-1962. A few known tracks such as "Leroy - Jack Scott", and "Look in my eyes - Chantels" but also a host of lesser known tracks. The feature track for me "Dwight Pullen - Sunglasses after dark". A must set if this is your genre

4.0 out of 5 stars Yet more great value from One Day Music., 18 Dec 2013

Most fans of 50s & 60s music will be aware of Jack Scott, The Chantels, Big Al Downing etc., but as is usual with these compilations, so many rarities appear here. I had no idea Kenny Rogers made records like the ones on these CDs, so once again listening to these has been a small voyage of discovery. Well worth the money.
