For record-buyers of a certain age, the Coral label means only one thing – Buddy Holly! The rock era’s first ever singer-songwriter cut his solo hits with this subsidiary of the Decca Record Company formed in 1949. Prior to his emergence, Coral’s most famous artists were the McGuire sisters, Lawrence Welk, and Teresa Brewer (who married label manager Bob Thiele). Debbie Reynolds with the movie-promoted Tammy gives Coral its greatest success. There are many other artists on Coral, such as Johnny Burnette, Patsy Cline, Moon Mullican, our Canadian the Diamonds.

When Buddy Holly and his band the Crickets broke through in their native United States in 1957, they were marketed by Decca Records as separate acts: Brunswick for the Crickets and Coral for Buddy Holly.

Jerry Allison of the Crickets married Peggy Sue Gerron, the girl immortalized in song: Peggy Sue and Peggy Sue Got Married. Sonny Curtis is another Cricket who wrote More Than I Can Say (my favourite version is that by Bobby Vee). The Crickets later moved to Liberty label.

This Rave On: The Coral Story is a 2 CD set with 50 songs. The sound is quite clean with minimal hiss.

This is a welcome addition to One Day's retro label compilation series, with this title chronicling some of the great sounds of Coral Records. The Decca subsidiary could boast Buddy Holly on it's roster, but Buddy's not the only household name featured on this album as other stars of the time like Johnny Burnette, Patsy Cline, The McGuire Sisters and even Debbie Reynolds are included, making this an eclectic compilation that label enthusiasts will love! Great value (as always). 5 stars.

50 remastered tracks on 2 CD's makes this set worth the money. The clutch of Buddy Holly and Johnny Burnette tracks will no doubt be already in most collectors collection, but there are a few rare gems here also, such as "Hearts of stone" - Goofers and "That's my desire" - Exotics. Worth a listen and good value.

By Dangerous Dave TOP 500 REVIEWER on 8 Mar. 2015
Format: Audio CD
That's what we saw Coral as, way back when. The fact that the Holly "solo" records reached us in the UK with a Coral label rather helped. For some explanation of the Holly solo / Crickets "split", see my review of the Brunswick Story. A year or two later I rather belatedly found that there was another legendary rocker who had recorded for Coral in a '56 / '57 timeframe. That gent of course, was rockabilly legend Johnny Burnette, he of the Johnny Burnette Trio.

The Holly and Burnette tracks contained herein should be in everyone's collection. If by some faint chance you've not heard them, a single listen to these tracks should convince you of their merits. Elsewhere, there are a number of forced / inorganic rockers in this set i.e. attempts to emulate the sort of sound being put out by the Bill Haley band, and comparison of these to tracks like Holly's "Rave On" or Burnette's "Lonesome Train" highlights the strengths of the latter.

There's a fair amount of teen pop present but it's tinged with early fifties easy listening. Indeed tracks like those from Teresa Brewer and Debbie Reynolds take us right across to undiluted easy listening. This is where personal taste comes very much into things. I'd confess to be happy not to hear "Sugar in the morning, sugar in the evening, sugar at suppertime" ever again - with deep apologies to the McGuire Sisters - but I'm only too well aware that no two people's musical tastes are identical. These tracks are certainly representative of what was charting at the time, and One Day have done a perfectly good job in reflecting that in this collection.

Coral is one of those old time labels that produced a distinguished sound. This is a great collection, which caputures the mood of the time. Rebellious, but quite inncocent at the same time. Who can resist that? I can't, my brother (I gave this one to him as a birthday present) couldn't either. Played it 3 times in a row. By the way: great car music. Have a good trip.
