"Second of two CDs sampling songs from Archie Bleyer's Cadence Records label. Following the lead of volume one, among the 14 charting tracks included, are major hits from the labels' mainstays - Andy Williams, the Everly Brothers, Johnny Tillotson and the Chordettes. More big hits come in the form of Lenny Welch's exceptional "Since I Fell For You" and Bleyer's own version of the Ames Brothers' cutesy "The Naughty Lady Of Shady Lane". Rounding out the repertoire are Jamaican-born pianist Don Shirley's "Water Boy", a couple of Eddie Hodges pimply teen tunes, Link Wray's dark instrumental, "Rumble" and Charlie McCoy's minor pop hit, "Cherry Berry Wine". Sound quality is excellent overall with some hiss on some of the older tracks, not to be unexpected given the vintage of the original recordings. The eight-page liner notes booklet provides backround on the performances and some insight into the label's history. While a tad stingy on track count, this is a well-executed, diverse sampling of one of the 50's small but prolific independent record labels."
