3.0 out of 5 stars This will add quantity to your collection but little quality., 31 Dec. 2013

This review is from: Runnin' Wild: The Everest Records Story 1959-1962 (Audio CD)
Now that the fifty year copyright restriction has now been passed, there are so many of these compilation albums to be bought at a steal that it is really hard to know which ones to choose. I have a considerable number of them, and so far I have to say that this Everest collection is probably the most disappointing. Everest were not a major player in the pop music industry, having their foundations firmly rooted in classical music - and it shows. The fifty recordings selected here from the period from 1959 and 1962 most are pleasant enough, to be sure, but there are very few standout tracks that one would want to play again and again. There are a small handful of marquee performers in this collection - King Curtis, Ketty Lester, Patsy Cline, Billy Grammer and The Danleers are represented here, but, for the rest, the names of the others are generally as obscure as their performances are unmemorable. If you have become conscious in recent times that you have little or no material in your collections by the likes of Dolly Dawn, The Boulevards, Doris Payne, Pepe La Stanza or The Baker Brothers, then this 2 CD collection will help fill the void. However, if you are looking for a whole number of "gee whiz" tracks that you will want to come back to again and again, then you may well want to pass this one over and trawl through the other many compilations that are now on offer at a similar knocked-down price.
