Electrifying and Compelling!
(5 out of 5 stars)

"What a wonderful CD!!! "Susie Darlin'" was just ONE of the many great songs on this CD. If you are looking for forgotten songs (songs that are not played very much) then this is the right CD for you. It's too bad that these songs, especially "Susie Darlin'" don't have very much exposure to oldies fans. This CD most certainly needs to be dragged out of the vault and FAST!!!"
The only Robin Luke album you'll ever need (or find...)

"This is an album of songs by one-hit wonder Robin Luke. Well, a bit more than a one-hit wonder. Robin Luke -- a high school kid in Hawaii who writes a song, "Susie Darlin'," and records it in his manager's apartment. The manager provides backing vocals and "percussion" -- tapping a couple of Parker pens. A major record label takes Robin to L.A. and puts him in a studio, with professional surroundings and session performers. And, in the end, the label decides that the high school kid's home recording was actually better anyway. And the song makes the top ten. His parents make him promise to go to college, and he does, squeezing in recording and touring between classes. After graduation, Robin Luke gives up singing, and goes on to become a professor of marketing in a Missouri college. This album has pretty much everything Robin Luke ever recorded, astonishingly well preserved -- not a scratch or tape hiss to be found -- and the copious liner notes would make a good treatment for a screenplay. I'm glad I bought the CD."
Great Hits from A Ukelele Picker

"Good blends of early rock and Gibson electric guitar rhythm. This is a collectable right up there with Gene Vincent and Santo and Johnny."
