5.0 out of 5 stars Jumpin'
Coming out of post-war jump blues, jazz, and swing (Louis Jordan is here) is a collection of good time tracks running from 1947-1962. The inimitable Lightning Hopkins is in there too along with the more sophisticated Lowell Fulson holding up the Blues end which also includes the supper club Blues of Charles Brown. But mostly it's the West coast Black citified slick...

3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable Early R&B Compilation
A reasonable 2 disc compilation from 'One Day Music', which has fifty tracks from the 'Aladdin/Lamp' labels (founded in 1945). There's a one sided intro but no booklet - which is to be expected at this value for money price tag. The sound quality is very good, except on one or two tracks. The 50 tracks cover mostly R&B and Doo Wop, there's a mix of some well known tracks...

Coming out of post-war jump blues, jazz, and swing (Louis Jordan is here) is a collection of good time tracks running from 1947-1962. The inimitable Lightning Hopkins is in there too along with the more sophisticated Lowell Fulson holding up the Blues end which also includes the supper club Blues of Charles Brown. But mostly it's the West coast Black citified slick version of rock'n'roll with, as the compiler states, an emphasis on the the roll. And it's a whole very varied jumpin' load of fun. It's just good period pop that puts a smile on your face. Interesting to compare it to the radically different Rockabilly. Me, I find its aesthetic much more appealing.

3.0 out of 5 stars Reasonable Early R&B Compilation, 1 Jan 2013

A reasonable 2 disc compilation from 'One Day Music', which has fifty tracks from the 'Aladdin/Lamp' labels (founded in 1945). There's a one sided intro but no booklet - which is to be expected at this value for money price tag. The sound quality is very good, except on one or two tracks. The 50 tracks cover mostly R&B and Doo Wop, there's a mix of some well known tracks but mostly lesser heard tracks are the main stay, which is good.

Cd 1. (60.54mins) Tracks from 1947 - 1958 but mostly mid 50's. This disc contains the classics - 'Let the good times roll' by Shirly & Lee, 'Glory of love' and Thurston Harris' version of 'Little bitty pretty one'. Other good tracks are 'Baby it's too much' by Bobby Wall and 'Little girl...' by Flip Sloan' but many of the tracks fail to make a lasting impression, it's all subjective and you may love them. Overall 6/10.

Cd 2. (62.55mins) Tracks from 1949 - 1959 but again are mostly mid 50's. Great tracks include 'One,two, let's rock' by Sugar Pie & Pee Wee and a couple of good tracks from Thurston Harris (including a version of Bobby Days 'Over & Over'). Overall, there's nothing outstanding here but you may differ. 4/10.

Overall, a reasonable compilation (a big thumbs up to 'One Day Music' for releasing this lesser known labels material), good if you like early rare R&B.

A nice collection of 50 tracks from the American Aladdin label. Some well known artists such as Crystals, Thurston Harris, Lightnin' Hopkins and the 5 Keys. My favourite track, "Let me dream" Jessie Belvin. You won't be disappointed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Let the God Times Rule, 9 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I enjoyed this one also, great blues double album, you could sense the glasses rattling behind the bar, the rising infusion of cigarette smoke and cheap perfume, the throbbing of cool music set against the glistening skins of dancers,
trying to forget the misery of derelict housing, high unemployment, the scurge of poverty, so they escape for a short while, away from the hot southern summer heat, and immerse themselves in the cooling waters that they call the blues.
