This CD desn't really need a review from anybody!,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The London American Label, Year By Year: 1957 (Audio CD)
I would most personally have thought and imagine that most us who enjoy this/our music have been waiting for this most magnificent release and it doesn't really need a review from anybody. I was very pleased and both impressed to read that the intro is from one of my favourite personal reviewers Eric Dunsdon who I follow with great interest each month.
Where to start reviewing these tracks I wouldn't really know where to begin with as we start off with Fats Domino, then in comes Chuck Berry followed closely by Johnny Cash and the CD finishes off with Jerry Lee Lewis with both other big names in between plus quite a few other interesting numbers by other artists who although didn't make the big time were also there at the time. What is amazing is that all these releases were on just one record label Decca's, London American something that EMI missed out on even thou they started Liberty Records!
The accompanying booklet is a true work of art and genius of the first order and full credit to Ace Records for actually reproducing a copy of each individual disc and some of them in the older 78 format (quality!), and that is apart from the as always most excellent quality of the sound reproduction of the music. I know that Ace have said that they will, be going backwards, stop here but hopefully they may take a look at 1956, if this release is a success as I am sure that it will be? I haven't stopped playing this little beauty!
