CadillacsCrazy Cadillacs ... CD
Jubilee/Warner (Japan), 1959. Used ... $11.99
A killer from the legendary Cadillacs – maybe our favorite group on the east coast scene of the late 50s, and one of the few we can really depend on for a wonderful sense of range! The Cadillacs have a power that matches some of the bigger names of the time, especially The Drifters on Atlantic – and although the group were best known for their upbeat gimmicky tracks, they're also tremendous on ballads – of which there are a good number here! Production is nice and raw – with an especially noteworthy lack of instrumentation when things get mellow – and titles include "Gloria", "Don't Be Mad With My Heart", "Window Lady", "Carelessly", "Let Me Explain", "My Girl Friend", "Shock A Doo", "Zoom Boom Zing", and "Broken Heart".

✨✧ DominoesDominoes Collection 1951-1959 – Complete Singles A's & B's From Their Federal, King, Jubilee, Decca & Liberty Years (3CD set) ... CD
Acrobat (UK), 1950s. Used 3CD ... Out Of Stock
One of the greatest vocal groups of the postwar years – an incredible combination of voices that really paved the way for soul styles in years to come! The Dominoes were great right from the start – a group who blew away all the hoke of The Mills Brothers or Ink Spots – and instead forged this really raw, really spare sound that relied strongly on the presence of a key lead singer – who then got incredible support from the harmonies of the other members! The approach was groundbreaking – and matched only by a rare few, like The Drifters – and given that The Dominoes featured that group's great Clyde McPhatter as a lead singer before his work on Atlantic, The Dominoes definitely were the originator. This 3CD set features a whopping 88 tracks from the Federal, King, Jubilee, Decca and Liberty labels. CD

✨✧ VariousGolden Age Of American Rock & Roll – Doo Wop ... CD
Ace (UK), Late 50s/Early 60s. Used ... Out Of Stock
Doo wop recordings played a huge role in the early days of rock and roll – and this wonderful set offers up a huge amount of gems you might have otherwise missed! Like the "normal" volumes of the Golden Age Of Rock & Roll series from Ace Records, the approach here is wonderful – a really full array of sounds from the time that goes way past the hits – in a mode that mixes familiar numbers with lesser-remembered tracks that were definitely important at the time, but might have been lost in the shifting sands of time. The folks at Ace pull together doo wop work from a huge variety of labels – in styles that are both rock and soul, and illustrate the color-blind approach that most group fans had at the time – a love of listening that didn't care where the groups were from, as long as they could make magic with their voices! The notes are great – deeply detailed, on each track within – and titles include "If" by The Paragons, "Runaround" by The Regents, "Don't Take The Stars" by The Mystics, "Little Darlin" by The Diamonds, "What Will I Tell My Heart" by The Harptones, "Once In Awhile" by The Chimes, "Peanuts" by Rick & The Keens, "Wizard Of Love" by The Lydells, "Till Then" by The Classics, "Try The Impossible" by Lee Andrews & The Hearts, "Fools Fall In Love" by The Drifters, "It's Unbelievable" by The Larks, and "The Reason" by The 5 Chanels.
