The Night The End Records Story 1957 -1962 has 50 original tracks spread over 2 Cds. . Familiar names like Little Richard and the Miracles are familiar others not so. But then again that is the joy of these collections listening to some long lost track or discovering something new? These sets really are a steal at this price.
Why are these releases so reasonably priced I hear you ask?
The simple reason that these sets are as cheap as chips is that the tracks are public domain.
That means the rights to the music has gone and any old Dick or Harry can release them.
The bad news for the previous rights holders' means good news for us, the buyers for if the price is too high we will not buy. So the sets are at a more than reasonable price. Next year the law changes to fall in line with the Americans and the 50 year rule will be finished but that will apply only to stuff released after 1963. (Thanks to AJ Taylor for putting me right)
But Amazon have scrunched up all the tracks making it hard for people to read which tracks let alone which artist is on so I've spaced them out making it easier to read.
