The 32 tracks on this collection all made the US charts, yet very few charted in the UK.

The tracks on this collection cover out and out rockers, country flavors and plenty of R&B and blues. Including "Jivin' Around - Part 1 & 2)", "Bulldog", "Nut Rocker", "Rinky Dink" and more. This set is a must for fans of instrumental music.

Watching the success of indie labels like Atlantic, Chess, Specialty, Imperial, and others, industry giant RCA decided to re-enter the Rhythm & Blues field. RCA had dominated blues recording during the late 1920s and '30s, but the company dropped most of its blues artists, along with many of its country artists, during wartime raw materials rationing. In 1954, RCA decided to get back in the game, hiring A&R man Danny Kessler away from Columbia's OKeh label. The experiment ended in 1957 after notching up just one major hit, Mickey & Sylvia's Love Is Strange.

Our recent “Come Together: Black America Sings Lennon & McCartney” release was so well received that a second volume became a certainty. Here on “Let It Be” we extend the remit by bringing in the Beatles’ third great songwriter, George Harrison. Given that their prolific songwriting sprang from a shared appreciation of black American music of the 1950s and early 60s, it should surprise nobody that Lennon, McCartney and Harrison would come up with songs that would inspire black Americans to add them to their discographies.

It was a glossy, brash new form of pop music born out of ashes of late 1970s disco and funk and, just as in America, was the soundtrack to a new generation for whom money, style and flirtation trumped the overblown psychedelia of the previous decade. Eager to sound as American as possible with no hint of the fervor for afro-beat, afro-rock and afrocentric thinking that the 1970s had thrown up, a new generation of young artists and performers turned their backs on their cultural roots in music and sought a new kind of stardom and fame firmly connected to the glossy, snazzy world of the 1980s that was erupting in the USA and Europe.

Songs From The Soda Fountain is a compilation CD Rhino Records put together for the Walgreen's chain of drug stores, thus it has the same care as other releases made by the Rhino company. It focuses on music from the 1950's and early 1960's, aimed at the period in the store's history where they expanded their business to many more cities across the nation of United States. Some of the first Walgreen's stores featured soda fountains, where customers could walk in and sit to enjoy a soft drink or milk shake beverage.

The Best of The Classics Vol. 4 (Disc IV) is a classical compilation CD released by the Madacy label of Canada. While the disc and packaging lacks a date of release, it seems to be of 1990's vintage. The CD also lacks artist and production credits, which means it could be a series of artists or one artist performing everything. Who is responsible for these tracks will remain unknown. Take a chance.
