Product Description

Product Description

This compilation features releases from 1956 to 1962 when the label disappeared, including Shirley & Lee's 'Let The Good Times Roll', Big 'T' Tyler, The Sharps and Marvin & Johnny.

Vogue was originally a French label, formed to release jazz stuff, with which I have no truck. By 1951, it was a UK label and if you Google Vogue UK, we're informed that it released the first 7" 45 in the UK - moot point - being Shirley & Lee's 1956 "Let The Good Times Roll" (found on the earlier One Day release, "Let The Good Times Roll: The Aladdin Story", worth another four stars). So Vogue (UK) was a conduit for many US labels, here mainly Aladdin, with its subsidiary Lamp, plus a few others from such as Duke, Peacock and Arvee. As you'd expect, it's rammed full of r&b, doo-wop, and a smattering of black r&r (including the mighty Big T Tyler). Some typical teen r&r from Scott Engel, who morphed into Scott Walker. Turds in the swimming pool would have to be the Calimbo Steel Band, totally out of context, closely followed by the mellow vibes of Arthur Lyman. There is some crossover of tracks with the previously mentioned Aladdin set, as indicated, well worth getting if you're into 50s r&b/r&r, not too much to worry about, what with 125 cuts across the two sets. Silly money, too. Sound quality, as ever, averages out as excellent, possibly because they master from previously released CDs. Pity about the thumbnail sketches that pass as liner notes and need for teeny print. My only three concerns/complaints, preventing five star 'reviews'.

OH La La! Vogue records was a French Lable that soon realised that Les Anglais sold as fast as hot croisanttes on Bastile Day so they soon expanded in the the cash rich Teenagers of the 1960s.

But Amazon have cramped all the tracks and the artists making it hard for people like me to decypher which tracks are actually on the 3 CD set.

SO this may be useful?

This set of CD's has 75 tracks on 3 CD's. There are some classic tracks such as 'Little Bitty Pretty One' by Thurston Harris, and 'Pledging My Love' by Johnny Ace, but also lots of tracks which are not so familiar. Recommended listening.

This is probably the best issue in all of One Day's label stories and includes some real gems hard to find on CD, including The Sharps, The Tantones and The Jivers, although it's a shame that Thurston Harris' stormer "Be Baba Leba" is mastered too fast - by a full 10 seconds! Having purchased some of One Day's other releases, I was expecting the sound quality to vary considerably, however, not so. My only real complaint is that some of the songs could do with more treble to brighten their sound. The only other comment I will make is that the Arthur Lymon and the Calimbo Steel Band tracks are totally out of place on this set. What was the compiler on when he threw these 2 into the mix?? Thank goodness for the skip button!

i have only heard a few of the tracks on this 3cd set.
they are all classics so if the rest is half as good.
this is well worth buying, for less than 10p a song.
that probably works out as the price of a single in 1960.
