TOP 500 REVIEWERon 14 November 2012
This is a very good value for money (public domain) compilation from `One Day Music'. This 2 disc package is nicely produced and designed albeit with only a few small pictures, liner notes and writing credits for eye candy. The sound quality is very good. The music is from 1959, `Top Ranks' first year (a selection of tracks from JAR 102 to 261).

Cd 1. (59.06 mins.):- Starts off with the fantastic `I've had it' by the Bell Notes (later recorded by the Chosen Few - the American garage group), other highlights would be `Tallahassee lassie' by Freddie Cannon, a couple of great tracks from the Crests, a couple of sweet songs from Terri Dean to satisfy my sugar levels, and cd 1 finishes with `Tempting Me' by Bobby Jack. There's lots of ok to good songs in between depending on your taste. Overall 7/10.

Cd 2. (57.19 mins.):- A very Doo Wop and Instro's tinged disc, some mediocre tracks but lots of good tracks overall,- classics from Freddie Cannon, Dee Clark, The Fireflies, Bobby Hendricks and Little Antony & the Imperials. 7/10

Overall a very good compilation to start off the 'Top Rank' story, it would have been nice to start with JAR 101 - 'Little Drummer Boy' by Harry Simeone Chorale but i'm nit picking. Good listening overall.

Generous collection of largely obscure material from 1959 . The record industry looked like a goldmine at this time and the Rank Organisation briefly got involved . On realising their mistake , they soon dropped out and "Top Rank" became EMI`s receptacle for records licenced from the USA until it was replaced by the Stateside label in 1962 .

This is a great series of classic tracks from this great record label. The series is well produced and includes so many well known and slighlty less well known titles. Shall look out for other labels in this series

This 2-disc set compiles a load of tracks from the Rank Organisation's short-lived Top Rank label. Many of the tracks were licensed from USA. It i8s value for money.

Rock,N,Roll is what l live for, I can,t get enough of the these Records, many of which were never issued here in Great Britain, l,ve been interested in this type of Music for more than Fifty Years and apart from 80% of them having been Ruined by putting these Rare Recordings into Stereo (a Big Mistake) they are very Good indeed!
