Feelin' Fine Indeed,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Feelin' Fine: Gems from the Columbia Vaults 1954-1961 (Audio CD)
Another fine compilation from 'One Day Music' records, which is neatly packaged (but without a booklet - which is to be expected at this value for money price tag) there is a one-sided intro and writing credits. The sound quality is very good indeed (these public domain records have been remastered). Fifty tracks that cover lots of genres, it's a mix of well known American and British classics with lesser known tracks mixed in for good measure.
Cd 1. (58.19mins) 1955-61. Lots of well known classics with great sound quality, great to hear 'Chan Romero's' fantastic original of 'Hippy Hippy Shake'. The title track 'Feelin' fine' (is by the british Drifters not Clyde McPhatters group). Overall, not a duff track, play and enjoy. 10/10.
Cd 2. (60.34mins) 1953-61. Again there are so many great tracks on this disc - 'Wild one' by Bobby Rydell,, 'Gee' by the Crows and my favourite is the ever wonderful 'I'm not a juvenile delinquent' by Frankie Lymon (what a great singer - tragic he died so young). 10/10.
Overall, a top notch compilation, that has a great selection of tracks, great sound quality, at a low price - a neat package that shows other budget labels how to do it.
