A treasure trove of 50s doo wop & R&B, 60s soul and a few soulful 70s recordings from Berkeley, CA based Music City label – wonderful numbers from The 4 Deuces, The Dreamers, Jimmy Nelson, The Midnights, The Twilighters, The Pagans, The Night Caps., The 3 Honeydrops, The Derbys, The Soul Brothers, The Ballads, The Heavenly Tones and many more! Ray Dobard's Music City has a pretty rich discography of 45s & 78s from the mid 50s to early 60s and some LPs – so it's pretty incredible that we're only now seeing such an excellent, and seemingly comprehensive overview. That's another reason to love Ace Records! The set features 78 tracks on 3CDs, the first 2 discs devoted to the sweet doo wop and raw R&B of the 50s to mid 60s. Disc 3 features more 60s material and some rare and unheard recordings from the 70s, including a great track from the now beloved west coast funk genius Darondo
! Includes "WPLJ" by The 4 Deuces, "I Don't Stand No Quittin'" by Gloria Jean, "From The Bottom Of My Heart" by Leon Pryor, "Annie Pulled A Hum-Bug" by The Midnights, "Rockin' Satellite" by The 3 Honeydrips, "Elaine" by The Klix, "I Walk In Circles" by Little Lynn, and "Didn't I" by Darondo
, to name but a few. Nice booklet, too.
