Shows why Sandy Nelson should be in the Hall of Fame

"[[ASIN:B00000094I Let There Be Drums/Drums Are My Beat
I love this CD. Sandy Nelson was the primary reason I became a drummer in the first place. He also inspired thousands of other young percussionists with his "Let There Be Drums" and other hits.
It is a travesty that Sandy Nelson has been kept out of the Drumming Hall of Fame. I understand that he is not considered the most technically proficient when compared to others, but his impact in increasing the visibility of modern popular drumming cannot be denied. Please email the Drumming Hall of Fame (google it) and ask that Sandy Nelson be inducted."

"I never considered Sandy Nelson a great drummer, but he certainly appealed to millions of teens, including myself, in the late 50's through the mid 60's. This is a pretty good collection of those "TEEN" cuts as well as some more serious stuff, such as Cozy Coles's-Topsy Part II. I still have most of his stuff on vinyl and will eventually put some of his better, but never popular, recordings on CD's for a more complete, eclectic collection."
Drums continue to be my beat

"While the 1960's drumming of Sandy Nelson may be a little dated, in 2009, all the power and verve of originality the performer intended comes through on the CD. Sandy's opportunistic style as a drummer may not be a technical achievement, but it was and is a performer's statement. Good on you Sandy, the drum beat achieved what you intended. Let there be drums. A fan."
