This album suffers slightly from having tracks that have been done to death elsewhere; Bill Justis - Raunchy, Jimmy Jones - Handy Man, Marvelettes - Please Mr Postman, Marvin Rainwater - Whole Lotta Woman plus the truly awful 'Dinner with Drac' by John Zacherle. While it is not my favourite in the series Ace continue to give us wonderful sound quality and absolutely brilliant accompanying booklets containing pictures and narrative of immense interest. Rather than the 'Golden Age' of Rock and Roll, I think of the series as the 'History' of Rock and Roll. Seen in this light, I consider that volume 12 is a worthy successor to earlier releases.
