Drums Galore

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Super selections highlight this overview of great 50's drummers and their best-known beats. What places this CD in a higher category than other music appreciation types is the presence of Max Weinberg's endearing and insightful liner notes, which discuss each of the 18 tracks with reverence and adulation."
Great Series!! Why Out Of Print??

"Max is bigger now than ever, and that's not even counting the new reunion tour with Springsteen and the E St. Band. This compilation of three discs, together with the accompanying (also out of print) book "The Big Beat", must have been a labor of love for Max. But it's also an ESSENTIAL part of the music collection of anyone who loves great drumming! Which has been kind of important in rock & roll!! So why did the record company drop this series from its current catalogue? The Big Five record companies are worse than the five mob families that once ruled New York City!"
Let there be drums!

"This series is designed to spotlight drumming, as it relates to rock and roll. This volume spotlights the 1950s. Max Weinberg selected some of his favorite songs with his favorite drummers. Unfortunately, he wasn't able to get every song he wanted to use. The most obvious ommision is Elvis Presley's drummer D.J. Fontana. "Hound Dog" really should be here, but what can you do? Anyway, the rest of the songs are all great. Of course, a lot of them have great drum solos, but there are a few of them that have very subtle drumming which you really wouldn't take much notice of the drumming. But Max Weinberg knows more about drumming than the rest of us, so pay attention to the drumming in these songs. Even if you don't care about drumming, this is still a great album of 1950s rock and roll. Highly recommended."
