Another Great CD by ERIC Records
(5 out of 5 stars)

Some hard to find stuff here. Also some hard to find **stereo** stuff here. If you want to hear the flawless stereo version of Born To Late, this is the CD you want. If you want to hear Good Timin' in stereo, this is the CD you want. A note on the back of the CD states:All tracks AAD, digitally transferred from original analog master tapes by Fred Meyer at Polygram Studios."The sound quality does indeed sound like these came from the master tapes. I don't believe you will ever hear these songs sound better. At the time of this posting, Amazon did not have a track listing, here it is:(1) The House Of Blue Lights - Chuck Miller (mono)
(2) Confidential - Sonny Knight (mono)
(3) A Teenager's Romance - Ricky Nelson (mono)
(4) You're My One And Only Love - Ricky Nelson (mono)
(5) Wishing For Your Love - The Voxpoppers (mono)
(6) (It's Been A Long Time) Pretty - Baby Gino & Gina (mono)
(7) One Summer Night - The Danleers (mono)
(8) Summertime, Summertime - The Jamies (stereo)
(9) Born Too Late - The Poni Tails (stereo)
(10) Big Bopper's Wedding - The Bopper (mono)
(11) Sorry (I Ran All The Way Home) - The Impalas (stereo)
(12) Broken-Hearted Melody - Sarah Vaughan (stereo)
(13) Teen Angel - Mark Denning (stereo)
(14) Lonely Blue Boy - Conway Twitty (stereo)
(15) Handy Man - Jimmy Jones (mono)
(16) Good Timin' - Jimmy Jones (stereo)
(17) Cradle Of Love - Johnny Preston (mono)
(18) Image Of A Girl - The Safaris (mono)
(19) Ta Ta - Clyde McPhatter (stereo)
(20) Fools Rush In (Where Angels Fear To Tread) - Brook Benton (stereo)
(21) Corinna, Corinna - Ray Peterson (stereo)"
Watch out, majors

"Here, Eric Records, the big little reissue company, fires the opening salvo in its "Hard To Find 45s..." series of compilation CDs. This first volume presents titles from 1955 through 1960 and really tickles the musical memories of listeners of early American rock and roll ditties. While not all these titles may at first seem to qualify as "hard-to-find", finding even these popular ones in the sound quality presented here is truly the "hard-to-find" part. Beyond these more familiar tracks, fitting the hard-to-find-at-all bill are such tunes as Chuck Miller's "House Of Blue Lights", the Voxpoppers' "Wishing For Your Love" and "It's Been A Long Time Pretty Baby" by Gino and Gina. Since several of these tracks are pre-stereo (pre-'58) era, they by necessity appear in mono but many of the later ones (tracks 8,9,11-14,16,19-21) jump out in wide, dynamic stereo. Completing the package are interesting liner notes on each of the included tracks. Eric comes out with both barrels firing with this new series and shows the majors how it should be done. Top-of-the-line quality here for fans of the music from America's love affair with rock and roll in its infancy."
They're all here - almost

"The tracks by the Impalas, Safaris and Danleers make this a worthy buy - but this is not that hard to find stuff, at least not over here in Scandinavia. How about having those really, really hard to find tracks, like Ernie Freeman's "Dark Eyes", John D. Loudermilk's "Callin' Doctor Casey", on one CD? And what about James Gilreath's "Little Band of Gold"? Can't be found anywhere, right? Same with Eric Delaney's "Manhattan Spiritual"? OK, you can't have it all, I guess."
