PAUL & PAULA Black Tulip 2636409 Hey Paula! CD $17.98
31 tracks, 72 min., recommended
A generous slice of the hit and post-hit work of this early 60's white duo, opening with their well known solo hit from 1963, the title track here. Subsequent numbers are a mix of covers of 50's hits and popish attempts to recreate the sound of that one hit. Featured tracks, in addition to the aforementioned hit, include Pledging My Love, My Happiness, Come Softly to Me, You Send Me, Young Lovers, We Go Together, Blue Roller Rink, So Fine, School is Thru, We'll Never Break Up For Good, Stepping Stone, and Gee Baby. Nicely sung and produced music throughout, most of it in the vein of the more polished and polite rock and roll that had become the norm by the early 60's . Sound quality is above reproach, and there are no notes at all. (DH)

THE PEANUT BUTTER CONSPIRACY Sundazed 11144 Living Dream - The Best Of CD $16.98
20 tracks, 66 min, recommended
The PBC was a LA-based group that sounded a lot like very early Jefferson Airplane (think "Blues From An Airplane") or Spanky & Our Gang, with folk-like harmony vocals, trippy lyrics & some hot guitar. This has tracks from their two Columbia LPs, The Peanut Butter Conspiracy Is Spreading from '67, produced by Gary Usher, & The Great Conspiracy from '68 produced by Jerry Fuller, along with some non-LP single sides & even a couple unreleased cuts. 12 pg booklet with an excellent history of the band by Mike Staxx including current interviews with band members, as well as pics & posters. In slip-covered cover. Titles include Why Did I Get So High, Twice Is Life, Turn On A Friend (To The Good Life), Captain Sandwich.. (GM)

Rockabilly as it was meant to be heard - 24 Sun classics by one of the fathers of rockabilly with tremendous punch, presence and clarity which shows just what can be done with compact discs if you try. We can really hear the vibrancy of Carl's vocals, the jangle of his guitar and the thundering slapped bass of Clayton Perkins. Tracks are featured in chronological order and include Honky Tonk Gal/ Turn Around/ Let The Jukebox Keep On Playing/ Blue Suede Shoes/ Tennessee/ All Mama's Children/ Dixie Fried/ You Can Do No Wrong/ Your True Love/ Put Your Cat Clothes On (with great piano by a certain Mr J. L. Lewis)/ Pink Pedal Pushers/ Lend Me Your Comb/ Right String Baby and all the other gems. (FS)

CARL PERKINS Bear Family BCD 15494 The Classic Carl Perkins CD $99.98
5 CDs, 130 tracks, absolutely essential
With his beautiful, soulful honky tonk voice and jangly, bluesy guitar Carl Perkins epitomized rockabilly like no other artists. Accompanied by the thumping bass and propulsive guitar of brothers Jay and Clayton and the steady drumming of W.S. Holland they produced exciting timeless music for Sam Phillips' Sun label between 1954 and '57. The first 2 1/2 CDs in this beautiful 5 CD set feature those recordings and although many of these tracks have been reissued before this collection features several previously unissued takes and in Carl's case the alternate versions are frequently very different to the more familiar ones - the three different versions of his most famous song Blue Suede Shoes are particularly revealing. These recordings have never sounded better thanks to the remastering wizardry of Bob Jones. The rest of this box is devoted to his recordings made for Columbia and Decca between 1958 and 1964 are generally less interesting, marred by assembly line Nashville production, thin sound and often mediocre songs. Nevertheless Carl's beautiful vocals often surmount the obstacles and he manages to get in a hot guitar solo here and there. Interestingly the best of these recordings are from a 1964 session in England with English group The Nashville Teens where Carl sounds more enthusiastic than he had in a long time. The set is beautifully packaged in a sturdy box with a beautiful full color photo and Carl and his band from the late 50s or early 60s. There is a 24 page LP sized booklet with notes by Colin Escott and Bill Millar, over 2 dozen photos and full discographical details on all the recordings included. Another essential winner from Bear Family. (FS)

CARL PERKINS T-Bird 009 Whole Lotta Shakin'/ On Top ● CD $19.98
22 tracks, 59 mins, recommended
This CD reissues two LPs that Carl recorded for Columbia when he was under contract to them at two different times. "Whole Lotta Shakin'" is from 1958 and features mostly rock 'n' roll favorites like the title song, Shake, Rattle & Roll/ Ready Teddy/ Good Rockin' Tonight, etc. Carl's singing and guitar playing are great but the backing band gives new meaning to the word "lame." Highlight is Carl's soulful rendition of the old blues standard Sittin' On Top Of The World. "On Top" is from 1969 and finds Carl in a more contemporary sounding vein on a collection of mostly new material including several new compositions by him including the hard driving Soul Beat and Champaign, Illinois which was co-written with Bob Dylan. Carl sounds fine with solid accompaniment from the band which is contemporary but tasteful. He also does some older numbers including fine versions of Buddy Holly's I'm Gonna Set My Foot Down and the old blues standard C.C. Rider. Not classic Carl but definitely worth a listen. (FS)

RAY PETERSON Collectables 5876 Tell Laura I Love Her CD $13.98
14 RCA & Dunes titles - many making their first appearance on CD. Includes the big hit title song and Corrina, Corrina plus The Wonder Of You/ Till Then/ Goodnight My Love/ Answer Me My Love/ Richer Than I, etc.

GENE PITNEY Bear Family BCD 15724 Hits & Misses CD $21.98
26 tracks, 65 min., recommended
While this collection includes a handsome helping of Gene's Top 40 better knowns from the early '60s (The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance/ Town Without Pity/ Twenty Four Hours From Tulsa/ Only Love Can Break A Heart/ Half Heaven, Half Heartache), the reason to pick it up is the misses. All 4 of his Decca duets with Teresa Brewer sound alike Ginny Mazarro the label pushed them as Jamie & Jane from 1959 are here, as are his singles issued as by Billy Bryan, including an unreleased demo of Make Believe Lover. Phil Spector fans should appreciate Pitney's impressive take on the Goffin/King song Every Breathe I Take, an early brick in the "wall of sound." Did I mention the version of Town Without Pity called Bleibe Bei Mir, in which Gene sings his hit with new lyrics and in German? That's here. (JC)
JAMIE & JANE: Classical Rock And Roll/ Faithful Our Love/ Snuggle Up Baby/ Strolling (through The Park)/ GENE PITNEY: (I Wanna) Love My Life Away/ Bleibe Bei Mir (town Without Pity) (german)/ Cradle Of My Arms/ Donna Means Heartbreak/ Dream For Sale/ Every Breath I Take/ Half Heaven, Half Heartache/ Hello Mary Lou/ I'll Find You/ I'm Going Back To My Love/ If I Didn't Have A Dime/ Make Believe Lover (demo)/ Mecca/ Only Love Can Break A Heart/ Please Come Back, Baby/ Sure Fire Bet/ Teardrop By Teardrop/ The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance/ Today's Teardrops/ Town Without Pity/ True Love Never Runs Smooth/ Twenty-four Hours From Tulsa

BARBARA PITTMAN Charly SNAP 223 Getting Better All The Time CD $13.98
27 tracks 69 mins, recommended
Repackaging of Charly 8319 in digipack with picture label on disc. It's stretching it a bit to fill up a whole CD so there's some fairly pedestrian outings included, as well as several alternate takes. Nothing else here is as rocking as her famed I Need A Man but I'm Getting Better All The Time (four takes - one totally different, with just Jack Clement on acoustic guitar), Everlasting Love and Sentimental Fool (3 takes) rock like crazy with that good ol' Sun rhythm. It's funny how she sounds so amateurish at times and at other times, like on Two Young Fools In Love and Handsome Man, she sounds mature and forceful. (AE)

THE PIXIES THREE Crystal Ball 1033 Our History - From The Beginning CD $17.98
30 tracks by girl group from Hanover, Pennsylvania who had several minor hits in the mid 60s. This compilation features issued recordings, unreleased songs, demos with piano only and an acapella track.

THE PLAYBOYS Dee-Jay Jamboree 55107 Over The Weekend & Other Hits, 1956-1962 CD $18.98
27 tracks from Philadelphia based lounge act who had a minor hit with the title tune. A mix of rock 'n' roll, R&B, doo-wop and pop performed in a non threatening manner.

THE PLAYMATES Collectables 5418 At Play With The Playmates - Golden Classics CD $13.98
The Playmates Trio hail from Waterbury, CT., and came together when all were U. Of Conn. undergraduates. Donny Conn, Chic Hetti, and Morey Carr cut a slew of mindless jingo-ey pop tunes in the late 50's. Formerly The Nitwits, the group's harmonies resembled a crazed version of the 4 Lads. The guy's most bearable side Darling, their first for Roulette, is sadly excluded from this collection. Jo Ann, their third effort, hit the charts in 1958, followed by the dumb Beep Beep, for which a multitude of sub-humans shelled out good coin. In fairness though, Your Love, a ballad, is pleasing to the ear as is Jo Ann. Reissue of long out of print Roulette LP - 12 selections. Good average sound. (OLN)
THE PLAYMATES: Beep Beep/ Day I Died/ Don't Go Home/ First Love/ Jo Ann/ Let's Be Lovers/ Little Miss Stuck Up/ Star Love/ Wait For Me/ What Is Love?/ While The Record Goes Around And Around/ Your Love

BOBBY POE & THE POEKATS Eagle 90114 Let's Have A Ball CD $18.98
23 tracks, 54 min., recommended
Perhaps best known to rockabilly fans for his White Rock single (#1112) Rock 'n' Roll Record Girl/Rock And Roll Boogie, Bobby Poe and his band also recorded all of the other previously unreleased tracks here during that same fateful year, 1958. Backed in part by group pianist Big Al Downing who would later find fame on his own, Poe sings lead here on such numbers as Let's Have a Ball/ Love My Peggy/ Rebel Without a Cause/ I'm a Fool, and Flying Saucers Jig. The sound quality on all of these original recordings is a bit thin, with the balance between the singer and the band often uneven. Nonetheless, the sound of late 50's rockabilly is undeniably here. And, besides, the greatest joy in this issue is probably the great group photo on the cover. It says more about the spirit of rock 'n' roll and the racial harmony that it implied than the music itself does. (DH)
BOBBY POE: Be My Love (final Version)/ Be My Love (take 1)/ Drink To A Fool (final Version)/ Drink To A Fool (take 1)/ Drink To A Fool (take 2)/ Flying Saucers Jig/ Goin' To The River/ I'm A Fool/ I'm A Fool (final Version)/ I'm Having A Ball/ Let's Have A Ball/ Little Darlin'/ Love Me Peggy (take 1)/ Love My Peggy (take 1)/ My Baby She Left Me (take 1)/ My Baby She Left Me (take 2)/ Please Be My Love/ Please By My Love (take 2)/ Rebel Without A Cause/ Rock & Roll Boogie/ Rock 'n' Roll Record Girl/ Rock The Bop Tonight/ Well, I Love You

THE POE-KATS FEATURING BIG AL DOWNING Eagle 90125 Rocking Down The Farm CD $18.98
31 track collection featuring the group performing mostly rock 'n roll standards. There are very few details, other than that much of this material was "recorded with one mice" but I assume these are live or demo tapes from the late 50s or early 60s.
THE POE-KATS: Bonie Maronie/ Break Up/ Don't Ever Leave Me/ Great Balls Of Fire/ I Got A Feeling/ I Got A Woman/ I Was The One/ I'm A Fool (vers. 1)/ I'm A Fool (vers. 2)/ Just Because/ Keep-a-knockin'/ Let The Four Winds Blow/ Let's Have A Ball/ Little Coquette/ Love My Baby/ Love You So/ Lucille/ Miss Lucy (alt.

THE PONI-TAILS Famous Groove 971035 Born Too Late CD $18.98
The ultimate collection of recordings from this polite pop rock trio from Cleveland. Lavern, Toni and Patti hit it big in 1958 with the charming Born Too Late and followed it up with minor hits Seven MInutes In Heaven and I'll Be Seeing You. These are all here along with lots more including alternate versions, demos and an original radio promo version of Born Too Late. Includes Moody/ Close Friends/ Que La Bozena/ Come On Joe - Dance With Me/ Father Time/ I'll Keep On Trying, etc.

"GROOVEY" JOE POOVEY Dragon Street 70199 Greatest Grooves CD $14.98
24 tracks, 61 mins, recommended
Another high quality production from Dragon Street - this time featuring Dallas rockabilly legend Joe Poovey. The set covers the period 1954 through 1997 and, except for the two very forgettable earliest sides, reveal a very talented performer. Joe was an exceptionally fine vocalist who was equally at home with rockabilly, rock ballads, honky tonk country or bluegrass. It includes his Dixie classics Ten Long Fingers/ Careful Baby/ Move Around (including an alternate take of the latter), pre-Dixie demos previously issued by Rollin' Rock in the 70s, live recordings from the Big_D Jamboree in 1958, sides recorded for various labels in the 70s and 80s and some excellent tracks from 1997 including a remake of Ten Long Fingers showing Joe still had the rockabilly fire in him. Like previous Dragon Street titles the sound is excellent and there is fine documentation from Dave Dennard. One tragic footnote - Joe died in his sleep shortly after approving the liner notes. So this set, which was hoped would reintroduce him to the music world, ends up being a memorial. (FS)

JOHNNY POWERS Norton CED 229 Long Blond Hair CD $14.98
Johnny Powers, who took his name from a candy bar, was one of the original rockabilly wild ones, even though he had to learn his thumpin' an' yellin' from the radio instead of in the cottonfields where his Southern brethren did - he was from Detroit. Johnny's great Fortune 45 is here, Honey Let's Go (To A Rock And Roll Show)/ Your Love, along with the classic Fox 45, Long Blond Hair/ Rock Rock. You get some great demos like Mean Mistreater and Someone's Gonna Hurt You as well as Mama Rock and Indeed I Do, a couple of tunes that were ripped off and released in Australia as by Johnny 'Scat' Brown.

The complete recordings of rockabilly and country singer from Alabama who died at a young age in 1961. The 25 tracks here by him were recorded between 1956 and 1960 for several labels, most notably the Los Angeles based Sage label and are a mix of rockabilly and straight country. The country performances are pleasant but undistinguished but the rockers are hot, often with fine guitar including the well known title song plus other goodies like Everybody's Rockin'/ Moonshine Liquor/ Tuscaloosa Lucy/ Drinkin' Wine Spo De O Dee and others. The 26th bonus track is a recording by Sunglasses composer Jim Noble with Rod Weston and a couple of members of The Champs. 16 page booklet has notes, photos, label shots and other memorabilia. (FS).
