This review is from: Rip It Up- The Specialty Story (Audio CD)
Specialty - the small independent label that had more than its fair share of BIG names and BIG characters - Little Richard, Larry Williams, Lloyd Price, Sam Cooke and Jesse Belvin to name only a few. There's so many great rock n' roll tracks on here mixed in with Doo Wop - the first 8 tracks on side one set the tone for the whole compilation. I must say the track selection in my opinion is very good, the compilers could have easily crammed it full of the big names hits, in-stead they have given us a wide choice of material from many different artists. This compilation has great sound quality considering these are mid 50's tracks (1952 - 1958) only one or two are a little less clear. As usual with these `One Day Music' compilations there's no booklet but there's a one sided introduction to the labels history. On the up side this is a very good 2 disc set. Snap up a copy now.
