UP ON THE ROOF
GEMS FROM THE ATLANTIC VAULTS 1961 - 1962 is a fabulous value 3 CD box set.
All the tracks are the originals by the original artists and all have passed the magic 50 year cut off day so are 'public domain'/
hence the cheap price!

BUT Amazon have cramped all the tracks and the as=rtists up making it really difficult to actuallt read whats on the CDs so I'm unjumbled them.

Given the subject matter, the start of the glory years for Atlantic, and the fact that One Day Music had gone for a whacking 75 tracks spread across 3 CD's, the expectation was that the contents of this little baby would be seriously great stuff. But it's not quite like that. Notwithstanding the fact that One Day have pulled a familiar trick and frontloaded several goodies, the actual spread of classics here is on the thin side. Which is not to say it's bad. It just might have had more impact trimmed down to a 2 CD 50 tracker.

I did wonder whether this was because they were holding any back but a look at the actual Atlantic listing for the period persuaded me otherwise; they probably did as well as they could and we don't seem to be missing any real gems.

So in positive terms, what's there?

* There are a generous six tracks from the great Solomon Burke of which four are classics in my book - and, as a Burke fan, it's nice to have the two lesser known tracks. There are six from the Drifters of which broadly half could be termed classics - I'm a sucker for the well nigh irresistible "When my little girl is smiling". We get three from Ray Charles. Not, perhaps out of quite the top drawer but I do like "Early in the morning" with its complex rhythm. There's Mel Tormé's great one-off, "Comin' home baby" plus another one-off in Richie Barrett's "Some other guy" - this was the one all those Northern groups used to do. And that's about it for recognised classics.

* I said "recognised classics", I'd put "Lavern Baker's uptempo gospelly affair "Saved" in the classics category but most of the world hasn't even heard it.

All these One Day music compilations are good value for money.
This one even more so since it's culled from the atlantic vault.
Better buy them now. In 2014 it will be too late.
The public domain limit will be extended to 70 years from 50 so get them while you can.

This is one of the great compilations. Great tracks; great sound; great value. Of course many of the tracks are well known but it's the rarely heard gems which sell these CDs. Ruth Brown is superbly soulful and Billy Storm is simply genius. Can't stop playing it.

i have been the proud owner of the brilliant 8cd Atlantic r&b box set for going on 20 years now.
there is a lot more vintage Atlantic now available from one day records.
there are some suspect inclusions it depends on your music tastes, I have always liked Lonnie Donegan!

If you are a Northern Soul person - this was the stuff that we listened to in Manchester in 65 -well some of it. Solomon Burke; La Vern Baker stand out. The Drifters' version of Stranger On The Shore is a pleasant surprise. Of course there is some dross - but at this price what do you expect?
