5.0 out of 5 stars 50 fascinating tracks from SPECIALTY in the 1950s., 10 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Rip It Up- The Specialty Story (Audio CD)
The SPECIALTY label was founded by Art Rupe in 1946 and survived into the 1960s.
This excellent bargain 2-CD set features 50 fascinating SPECIALTY tracks including 1950s' classics such as Little Richard's 'Rip It Up', Larry Williams' 'Bony Moronie', Lloyd Price's 'Lawdy Miss Clawdy', Guitar Slim's 'The Things That I Used To Do', John Lee Hooker's 'I'm Mad', Sam Cooke's 'I'll Come Running Back To You' and Tony Allen & The Chimes 'Night Owl'.
I can't recall many of the 50 tracks getting much airplay during the 1950s but 'Rip It Up - The Specialty Story' is a varied and entertaining collection which somehow manages to capture the spirit of that long-lost decade.
