4.8 out of 5 stars
The London American Story [1962]
Format: Audio CD|Change
Price:£5.46+ Free shipping with Amazon Prime

on 4 March 2013
I remember 1962 so well and this CD makes those memories come alive. So many of these tracks are outstanding but the track which really stands out is "Green Onions" by Booker T & the M.G.'s. Compared with most records of the day, the sound is so different with Steve Cropper's guitar work so ahead of it's time.

Compilations of this kind serve many purposes, one being proof as to why artistes of the calibre of Del Shannon, Roy Orbison and Ricky Nelson were consistently in the charts.

I've awarded four stars rather than five for two reasons: one being a lack of an informative booklet (see such releases on ACE) and the other is a personal choice; I could have done without "Speedy Gonzales" thanks very much!

A definite purchase for anyone with memories and a love of good music.

this was a replacement for one of the discs lost, highly amusing pop songs from my era, I smooched to them, loved to them, felt sad, happy,remembered old friends to them and it was interesting to learn that some had inspired the beatles on their first album.
