Product Description

A vastly-expanded CD reissue of this indescribably important R&B icon’s earliest recordings, both solo and incognito. Total overhauled from Ace’s best-selling "Get Out Of The Car" CD (CDCH 355), with every track freshly remastered from the finest source available. Several tracks are completely new to CD, and additionally Ace have endeavoured to use previously unissued alternate takes of titles where the masters appear on Ace's other Richard Berry-related compilations. The perfect companion to other CDs of Richard Berry’s 50s-early 60s material "Have ‘Louie’ Will Travel’ (CDCHD 977), "The Ultimate Flairs" (CDCHD 1023) and the Dreamers: "They Sing Like Angels" (CDCHD 829).

Format: Audio CD
Ace seem to have cornered the market on Richard Berry and the 2 main labels he recorded for Flip and Modern.On this CD are some of his extra curricular activities as a session singer on records by Etta James and the Peaches.
There's no outright classics here but then its aimed at collectors
There's also a seperate CD of the Dreamers who were the girl group used by Berry and the ones who led to the Blossoms but it doesn't appear to be on Amazon

HASH(0x9dd59054) out of 5 stars Richard's Early Years 7 Jan. 2005
By Ron Heck - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
While not quite as good as the compilation Have "Louie" Will Travel this is still a worthy companion to it. It is clearly obvious that Ace Records intended it to be. Like the other album, it has an astounding number of songs and biograhical information, all mixed with family and wedding pictures. However, it just seems that the songs aren't as good as the ones on Have Louie and the biography doesn't seem as interesting. This is partly due to the fact that this came out after Have Louie, and this covers the earlier parts of his career. A lot of the songs just sound the same as other songs on the record. Also, the best songs aren't quite as good as the best songs on Have Louie. There are some definite throwaways like Big John, Hey Henry, At Last, and even the title track which is a very obvious (attempted) cash-in on Little Richard's success. Nonetheless, there are some very bright spots on this CD. Particularly, The Wallflower, which is classic, just about all his material with The Dreamers, and it shows his solo work develop into his own very unique style. There are also a few alternate takes, but according to the liner notes only a couple of words and phrasing is changed from the original releases, making the other compilation of this same period of his career, Get Out of the Car, obsolete. I would definitely recommend buying Have Louie first and if you can't get enough of him (which you probably won't) I recommend picking this up. Now, if only Ace will put out a CD compiling recordings made after Have Louie, if there is any.

HASH(0x9da3acf0) out of 5 stars Rare Richard Berry Songs 21 May 2007
By James M. Maley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I have been a Richard Berry fan since the mid 50's with Louie Loue, Have Love will Travel etc. This recording has a number of songs which I have not heard before such as Big John and two under the name Ricky and Jenell. I do a 50's R&B radio show on SF Bay Area radio and these songs and others from the album were a big hit with our audience as they thought they had heard everything by Richard Berry. Great album!
HASH(0x9da3ad44) out of 5 stars Richard Berry has never received the credit he deserved. 10 April 2014
By JOSEPH JEDLICKA - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Richard Berry was a class act and was truly an innovator of Rhythm and Blues music from the 50's. A must have for the true Rhythm and Blues fan.
