VA - As Good As It Gets - Great British Rock & Roll (2000)
Label: Disky Communications EU | 2CD | MP3 320 kbps | 329 MB
Genre: Rock & Roll, British Invasion

double-CD set lives up to its title, at least as a representative
compilation of the period it covers -- no vinyl compilation ever aspired
to offer anything like the 64 tracks presented here, all dug out of the
EMI vaults. Conceptually this is a killer collection, representing
early dawning years of British rock, when acts like Vince Taylor &
the Playboys, jazz trombonistDon Lang, and be-bop drummer Tony Crombie
and his group the Rockets all competed for the public's attention, and
the book was still being written on how to make (or succeed in) rock
& roll. It all predates the Beatles as a recording act, though a
handful of names came through the transition wrought by the Liverpool
quartet and are recognizable today (albeit not always for rock &
roll, as in the case of Jim Dale) -- the Shadows, Johnny Kidd & the
Pirates, and Adam Faith (who does a killer rendition of "High School
Confidential" years before he became a success with a smoother brand of
rock & roll) are among those who survived to rock another day. But
as obscure as Janice Peters (who sounded like a British version of Jo
Ann Campbell) or the Five Chesternuts may be today, the music here is
all eminently enjoyable, and on a lot more than a historical basis --
these acts could rock out, and if they weren't as original or creative
as the Americans whose sounds they emulated, they did put on a great
show. Two acts here, Dickie Pride and Bobby Angelo and the Tuxedos, are a
genuine surprise, delivering as good a rock & roll sound as anyone
ever heard on this side of the Atlantic. The influences that abound are
fascinating, the near-ubiquitous sound of Elvis Presley (and, to a
lesser degree, Jerry Lee Lewis) vocally, on the part of most featured
singers, vying for prominence with the boogie-woogie-inspired jazz
origins of Bill Haley, with some influence also felt from Jerry Lee
Lewis' band. Nobody, at least at EMI's various labels, apparently ever
considered trying to re-create Chuck Berry's or Bo Diddley's sounds.
Speaking of sound, it ranges from the very good to the startlingly
excellent, nice and loud with a lot of presence and sharper than the
records ever were. There are a few gaps, like the absence of Janice
Peters' "A Girl Likes," and it seems a little unnecessary to have
included Johnny Kidd & the Pirates' "Shakin' All Over," except to
give purchasers at least one familiar hit. But considering that the
contents are limited to the EMI vaults, the quality and consistency of
the contents across two hours of listening is astonishing. And the notes
by Dave Travis are practically worth the purchase price by themselves.
