A Mixed Bag,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The London American Label, Year By Year: 1957 (Audio CD)
Firstly the positives, Yet another great sounding, quality compilation by 'Ace' records (the 7th in the series so far). The cd runs 64.12 mins. and comes with a comprehensive 24 page booklet. As for the music - it would be easy, if incorrect to only cite the fantastic music on this cd but in truth I don't think i've listened to a more polarised compilation than this (some of it is SUBLIME, the rest is AWFUL.) In a way it not only shows the diverse range of music that 'London' were releasing but indicates the struggle of the old guard of music to the on slaught of rock n' roll. Overall, I would still recommend buying this cd. It's fantastically produced, and contains some of the worlds most outstanding music and i'll leave it up to you to decide which tracks are outstanding or not.
