Some of the tracks on the CD's sound like they have been recorded straight off a vinyl record, replete with all the hissing and crackling that you would expect. And some tracks just have not been recorded properly and sound awful, especially 'Go 'way Hound Dog' on CD 3. Other tracks you have to turn up the volume up high to be able to listen to, which then leads to a near heart attack when the next track plays at a thundering volume!
So, if it were not for those niggles I would have awarded it full marks.
Whilst this is an excellent overview of the era, and including many of the greatest recordings ever made, I must state that as a box set it fails badly (as do so many of the cheap rockabilly box sets being put out) in that it is devoid of information of any sort. I personally don't mind this as I have been collecting for more years than I care to remember, and I am familiar with the artists and their backgrounds eg labels they recorded for, musicians on the tracks etc
This enables you to build up a knowledge and understanding of the recording industry in the US in the 50's and a lot more besides. But this set leaves you with great music and little else.If however its just the music you are after then this set is highly recommended. Buy it for the music - you won't be disappointed.
