4.0 out of 5 stars Good Listening, 14 Nov 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Top Rank Story 1959 (A Sides) (Audio CD)
This is a very good value for money (public domain) compilation from `One Day Music'. This 2 disc package is nicely produced and designed albeit with only a few small pictures, liner notes and writing credits for eye candy. The sound quality is very good. The music is from 1959, `Top Ranks' first year (a selection of tracks from JAR 102 to 261).

Cd 1. (59.06 mins.):- Starts off with the fantastic `I've had it' by the Bell Notes (later recorded by the Chosen Few - the American garage group), other highlights would be `Tallahassee lassie' by Freddie Cannon, a couple of great tracks from the Crests, a couple of sweet songs from Terri Dean to satisfy my sugar levels, and cd 1 finishes with `Tempting Me' by Bobby Jack. There's lots of ok to good songs in between depending on your taste. Overall 7/10.

Cd 2. (57.19 mins.):- A very Doo Wop and Instro's tinged disc, some mediocre tracks but lots of good tracks overall,- classics from Freddie Cannon, Dee Clark, The Fireflies, Bobby Hendricks and Little Antony & the Imperials. 7/10

Overall a very good compilation to start off the 'Top Rank' story, it would have been nice to start with JAR 101 - 'Little Drummer Boy' by Harry Simeone Chorale but i'm nit picking. Good listening overall.
