I know this label has its critics amongst the purists but for the price, the track selection is good and the quality on a par with other labels. Despite the odd spelling mistake and cataloguing errors on some of this labels' series, they are still a great asset to the music collection.

INTRODUCTION:

Warwick Records, initially backed by Canadian company United Telefilm Records, was founded by Morty Craft in 1959, following a short but highly successful stint at MGM. Lasting only 3 years, this label has discovered many major artists, like Johnny & the Hurricanes, the String-A-Longs, the Fireballs, Art Garfunkel (under the name of Artie Garr) and Paul Simon (under the name of Paul Kane, True Taylor and Jerry Landis). In 1962, Warwick filed for bankruptcy, perhaps paying the price for Morty Craft’s insistent focus on promotion over production. During its brief, hit-packed tenure, Warwick Records managed to leave a mark on what was perhaps the most exciting period in US music.

CONTENT:

This 3 CD set has 75 songs, from 1959 to 1962. To appreciate how good this set really is, you have to know what songs are in it. Since Amazon.ca did not provide a song listing, I have compiled a detailed song listing (including chart positions and personal comments), which is as follows:

Disc 1:
01 Wild Child – Little Esther Phillips (Uncharted, 1960)
02 Talk Talk – Eddie Reeves (Uncharted, 1961)
03 Boo Boo – Marvin Rainwater (b-side to I Can’t Forget, 1961)*rare gem
04 Crossfire – Johnny & the Hurricanes (US 23/1959)
05 Water Boy – Bob Crewe (Uncharted, 1959)*rare gem
06 Well-A, Well-A – Shirley & Lee (US 77/1961)
07 Come On – The Distants (Uncharted, 1960)
08 Just A Boy – Jerry Landis (Uncharted, 1960)*rare gem; Paul Simon’s initial effort under Jerry Landis, who scored later with The Lone Teen Ranger in 1963 on Amy Records.

Eclectic mix,as usual with these label tributes from One-Day Music.
You only need to look at the tracks on here to know that the instrumental side is top notch- J.& Hurricanes, Link Wray, Mysterions, Fireballs etc.
A few of the numbers I liked were "Counting Sheep Over You" by Linda Glover (a catchy little rockabilly tune), "Across The Moon" (Kitt 'n Kory), a nice bit of doo-wop, "Tonight I Fell In Love", more doo-wop, but this is more typical of mid-sixties style. The "Big River" track is not the Johnny Cash song but is a reggae-ish cut, & very nice too.
Personally, I found the recording of "Dream Alone" by Artie Garr (Art Garfunkel) one of the most tedious tracks I've ever heard, if not THE most tedious (Sorry, Art fans!). Also, the recording on here of "Let The Good Times Roll" is not the best version available, but as already stated, this is only my opinion.
Finally- three UK recordings here, courtesy of Pet Clark, Matt Monro & Andy Stewart.
Overall, a good addition to my collection & I'm sure other late 50s/early 60s fans will appreciate it.

This is "Music". No better and no worse than what is currently being written, recorded and performed in the 21st century

Good RnR /R&B selection that would have been better without Pet Clark & Matt Monro.
