R&B Essentials

R&B Essentials


1 New & Used Starting at $19.55


Although it has no surprises, CEMA Special Markets' R&B Essentials is a good budget-priced collection of R&B hits from the late '50s and early '60s, all culled from the EMI-Capitol vaults (including recordings from labels they have recently purchased). The disc will certainly be a little brief for most tastes, but there's no denying what's here -- Fats Domino's "Ain't That a Shame," the Chiffons' "He's So Fine," Inez Foxx's "Mockingbird," Shirley & Lee's "Let the Good Times Roll," Ernie K-Doe's "Mother-In-Law," the Falcons' "You're So Fine," the Johnny Otis Show's "Willie and the Hand Jive" and Jessie Hill's "Oo Poo Pah Doo" among them -- is first-rate and makes for a terrific budget-line sampler.
