4.0 out of 5 stars A true taste of 1957, the great, the good & the weird, 13 Oct. 2012
This review is from: The London American Label, Year By Year: 1957 (Audio CD)
1957 wasn't all about the rock & roll greats of Elvis, the Everlys, Buddy Holly, Little Richard, Fats, Jerry Lee & the other giants of the time. This CD reflects the mix of songs that were released at that time.
With the benefit of hindsight it's always a surprise to see what didn't make the charts.

This CD contains a number of tracks by established stars as Fats Domino, Chuck Berry, Little Richard, Johnny Cash, Eddie Cochran & Jerry Lee.
The attraction of this series of London American year by year CDs is to find those less well known tracks that are real finds & again Ace records have come up trumps.

Great tracks by Clyde McPhatter, The Moonglows, Dean Beard & the Crew Cats, Chuck Willis, Joe Turner, Ruth Brown & Ernie Chaffin.

There are a few tracks that are hard to like but they represent the music of the time.

Sad to say that the Patience & Prudence track is not a patch on their two hits; perhaps their mother wasn't singing on this one.
However, if you like clever American songwriting, you'll enjoy such lyrics as:
'the moan & groan of a tenor saxophone',
'the repetition of a rocking composition',
& my favourite:
'we are up a tree & can't ignore it
You see we haven't got the voices for it'.

Wonderful stuff. Add this CD to your collection. You won't regret it.
