The good people at Fantastic Voyage have put together this easily-digestible 2LP edition with 32 songs from their sprawling 3CD compilation of '50s rock'n'roll, with an excellent mixture of famous names and crate-digging obscurities over the span of this collection. It's great fun throughout, with not a dud in sight as you romp through doo-wop and country inflected rock'n'roll gems full of lively piano tinkling, bright sax honks and naive electric guitar boogie.
Nita, Rita & Ruby's 'Rock Love' is an early highlight, (featuring June Carter's sister Anita) with a virtuoso slide guitar performance that sounds like it's probably Speedy West but the details are hard to track down. The surfy reverb monster 'Paper Boy' by Norma Lee is another stand out with its booming handclaps, nimble guitar twiddling and cheeky vocal line. The 1952 blues-swing of 'Drill Daddy, Drill' by Dorothy Ellis, about oil prospecting, is pretty fascinating too. Overall not just an interesting listen but a consistently fun one. Ideal stuff for if you need some universally-likeable but still interesting listening for a party or gathering.
