Product Description

Product Description

Fury Records was founded by Bobby Robinson, who Variety magazine saluted in their obituary as the 'independent label entrepreneur whose career spanned the worlds of Fifties R&B and first-generation rap.' He was certainly a man who made things happen, with the likes of Wilbert Harrison, Gladys Knight and the Kodaks, this 2 disc compilation from the Fury vaults is a fitting testament to him.

There's a lot to discover here! Fans of the Rock N' Roll Era like me can still discover or "rediscover" if you will. Highlights include Harrison's smash hit "Kansas City" from 1959. The Lee Dorsey records have always been a good listen (check out Do-Re-Mi and Behind the 8-Ball). Gladys Knight & The Pips are superb with "Letter Full Of Tears." There's a lot of Doo-Wop here; for me the best tunes are by the Channels (Earl Lewis was great) "Bye Bye Baby" and the Kodaks "Oh Gee, Oh Gosh." There are some unknown tracks that I've enjoyed discovering like "Hucklebuck Scratch" by Riff Ruffin (a fine instrumental). If you're like me and you take pleasure in this era, you'll find the collection agreeable as many of their other releases. Peace, love and Rock n' Roll!!!!

If you're, generally, an r&b fan, this a very pleasant way to idle away a couple of hours or so. You've got bouncy doo wop from the likes of Lewis Lymon & The Teenchords, Little Bobby Rivera & The Hemlocks, The Emotions, The Federals, The Kodaks, the r&b doo wop of Sherman & The Darts (a la Danny & The Juniors), slowies from The Vibra-Harps (iffy lead vocal), The Starlites, more upbeat from The Du Mauriers - named after the fag brand? - and all points between. Not forgetting Wilbert Harrison, who leads with the title track.

Of a more acceptably straight r&b, the fine mid-pace pairing of Tarheel Slim, plus Bobby & Buddy, Curtis Carrington, others too. Nice instro in the Bill Doggett style, 'Huckle Scratch' from Riff Ruffin, biggish band, fine guitar. Like Hal Paige & The Whalers, notably 'Going Back To My Hometwown', with it's vaguely rhumba beat. Jimmy Ricks reminds me of 'Snap Your Fingers' by Joe Henderson, no bad thing.

As with most comps from One Day, it'll largely depend on how much you've got already and if you're prepared to shell out maybe a whole fiver to cover any missing titles. Other than that, no real turkeys, tho I could've lived without Gladys Knight & The Pips - but The Pips' 'Darling' classic doo wop. All in all, very pleasurable.

Many people will be familiar with a lot of the tracks here. There are some superb recordings by great artistes - Wilbert Harrison, Tarheel Slim, & doo-woppers Lewis Lymon, the Channels, the Kodaks, etc, etc.
Would have been 5 stars, but I have deducted 1 star for " I Found Out Too Late " by Jackie & The Starlites. A personal thing, but I DETEST songs with sobbing or crying in them.
Sound value.

Bobby Robinson, record producer, label owner, record store proprietor and all round music man founded a number of record labels including Fury Records in 1957 and Fire Records in 1959. Fury Records was largely for R&B and Fire was for blues, though I'd assumed that that statement had an element of simplification about it. I was right. A goodly amount of the music contained here is doo woppy and there's nothing wrong with that. It's all professionally produced - Robinson was often involved in the production - but what one does slightly miss are the sometimes endearingly under-produced singles from such artists.

Standing apart from the doo woppers are:

- The majestic Gladys Knight and the Pips caught here well before the move to Motown. We get four superb tracks from the group including one of multiple versions of "Every beat of my heart". There's also one track credited only to the Pips which was the name by which the group was known for their first few singles. I suspect this is one that was "in the can" and released after the group moved to another label.
- Lee Dorsey brings us some funk from way down yonder in New Orleans. Fabulous stuff. I hadn't heard the Dorsey version of "You are my sunshine" but it doesn't budge my view that every version of this song I've come across is great.
- Four tracks from R&B man Wilbert Harrison which include his two calling cards, "Kansas City" and "Let's stick together".
- In addition to the Gladys Knight tracks there are a few others which more than verge on soul including those from June Bateman, Little Joe Cook and (simply) Jackie.
- The intriguing Tarheel Slim who contributes a couple of great tracks which sit somewhere between blues and rockabilly.
