5-0 out of 5 stars It is a truely great tribute to one of the all time greats!
As far as I'm concerned Little Feat is the best sounding band on the planit, with or without Lowell George. With Lowell George however, they are a force! Not just a great sounding band, but an innovative band playing some really great music. We know what Little Feat is without Lowell, but how is Lowell without Little Feat? This album is the answer. Bonnie Raitt is, as always, a phenom. Allen Toussaint, Randy Newman, and Jackson Browne, do what they do best. And I even liked Eddie Money's 'Rock-n-Roll Doctor.' But perhaps the greatest tribute was made buy the most obvious people. A short yet true story...I had just bought the album, and was listening to it while engaged in some other activities, when along comes song # 11. It starts up with as funky a drum fill as you could ask for, then proceeds to blow my sox off! This was as funky a band as I had ever heard. I ran to the album credits, and looked up song # 11 to see who this undiscovered golioth could possibly be. the song...Honest Man, performed by...non other than Little Feat! The Feat is awsome, and Lowell George is Little Feat. Buy this album.

5-0 out of 5 stars Are there words better than splendid or illustrious?
Lowell George had a genius for writing music that would find its way in to a deep place in the listener's mindfulness and most secret emotional heart. That is true whether that person wanted to listen to his music or perform it. Taken as a whole, you know his music as a mixture of the eccentric and intelligent, idiosyncratic and complex, wildly humorous and seriously desperate. Because his songs are all of that and more, that means to me he really wanted to share himself and his music in a big way, and he generated unending admiration for that form of generosity.

I actually felt honored just to read the credits on this tribute, a lot of the people I respect and admire worked together on this project. Clearly, they all gave it their best effort.

Don't overlook the version of "Spanish Moon" which threatens to put all previous versions of the song permanently to shame. Performed by Phil Perry, Merry Clayton, and Ricky Lawson, this is their song now, and it could go to no worthier persons. You don't get to hear Merry Clayton to such great advantage very often, the last time was on "Poor White Hound Dog" on the original "Performance" soundtrack.

"Long Distance Love" listed on the credits as performed by Keisuke Kuwata with Merry Clayton, has become its own definitive version. This is a masterful arrangement at work here, complete with a startlingly innovative, unique guitar signature and percussive interplay that is absolutely perfect in its simplicity and understatement. Whoever it was who contributed the thoughtful arrangement and allowed this version to come into being should be properly thanked and recognized in some way.

Because Lowell George still inspires great musicians to reach deep within themselves in an attempt to outdo even themselves, that in itself is the most noteworthy and longlasting tribute.

4-0 out of 5 stars He had 2 Degrees in Bebop, a PhD in Swing ...
Lowell was Da Man! Never got to see him in person but I never pass up anything associated with him. Get all the official Little Feat CDs (including their excellent and neglected post-Lowell George releases) and Thanks I'll Eat It Here before you get this, but get this anyway! It shows off George's brilliant songwriting in the hands of very sympathetic interpreters. I understand a Japanese version features Dr. John and others and includes the signature song Dixie Chicken, but you won't miss it. (There are plenty of covers of that one out there anyway.)

3-0 out of 5 stars Creative If Not Quite The Real Thing
This collection contains some fairly captivating versions of Lowell George's best songs. I do not know why Dixie Chicken was omitted from this collection. It was the signature Little Feat song during Lowell's time with the band. Spanish Moon has some funky and spiritual arrangements that make it kind of special. Inara George's interpretation of Trouble has some tender vocalizations. Bonnie Raitt accompanies Little Feat quite nicely on the riveting Cold Cold Cold. Its a shame that more well known artists did not pay tribute to this talented man. None the less most of the versions are pretty entertaining. Eddie Money's version of Rock N Roll Doctor is a little off kilter. None the less the result is good if not quite on the same level as hearing Little Feat's versions.

5-0 out of 5 stars about time this was done
I have waited a long time for a Lowell George tribute album. I am very pleased this was finally done. If anyone may be interested, I have been writing tab music to all of Lowells songs. Just email me and ask about it. ..... redstrat@excite.com ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Get Hip To The Dawn Of Rock N' Roll
Memphis is that magical place where the blues intersects with jazz, gospel and country and forms a unique hybrid known as rockabilly or rock n'roll. Sam Phillips began Sun Records in 1950 to capture the raw gospel and blues sounds he loved so much and to sell his records to the existing R&B companies of the day. In the process he recorded the likes of B.B.King, Howlin' Wolf & Roscoe Gordon. These masters were sold off to Chicago's Chess Records and RPM/Modern Records. Five years latter Phillips' fledgling label had launched the careers of seminal rock n' roll figures, Elvis Presley, Johnny Cash and Carl Perkins.

It's all here in this essential two disc compilation. Talk about roots music...It dosn't get any deeper and raw than Rufus Thomas's Tiger Man, Billy "The Kid" Emerson's Red Hot or Gene Simmons' Drinkin' Wine. Then of course there's the aforementioned Elvis Presley, Scotty & Bill, (as orginally credited on Sun Records) on That's All Right and Mystery Train, Carl Perkins unforgetable Blue Suede Shoes and Match Box and Johnny Cash & The Tennesse Two doing Folsom Prison Blues and I Walk The Line. Let's not forget Roy Orbison & The Teen Kings big 1956 hit Ooby Dooby and the Killer himself Jerry Lee Lewis & His Pumping Piano with smash hits like Whole Lotta Shakin' Going On and High School Confidential.

This really is a "must-have" CD. If you have even a passing intersest in Rocabilliy, R&B, Gospel and Country, you owe it to yourself to pick up on this amazing anthology. Get hip to the dawn of Rock N' Roll. There's absolutely no better place to get started. ... Read more

The second set of Rhino Records' The Doo Wop Box includessuch gems as Robert & Johnny's "We Belong Together," Gene Chandler's "Duke of Earl"and the Robins' original version of Leiber & Stoller's "Smokey Joe's Café." The box setcontains 39 Top 30 R&B hits plus such pop smashes as the Platters' "My Prayer," theClovers' "Love Potion No. 9," Dion & the Belmonts' "Where or When," the Crests' "Stepby Step," the Marcels' "Heartaches" and Don & Juan's "What's Your Name." Puttingmore emphasis on uptempo tunes than its predecessor, the new box includes both theCadillacs' "Zoom" and the Collegians' "Zoom Zoom Zoom" as well as Frankie Lymon'sgiddy, boy soprano on the galloping "ABC's of Love." The first Doo WopBox is still the better collection, for it had first crack at the widely acknowledgedclassics of the genre, but The Doo Wop Box II is full of historicalmilestones and dizzying music.--Geoffrey Himes ...

5-0 out of 5 stars A wonderful collection for the serious doo wop fan.
It is true that the first Doo Wop Box Set had the more well known songs,but this second Box Set contains all the rare and hard to find doo wops. Trying to separetly find all the songs contained in this wonderful collection would take forever, so it's very convenient that all the treasures of the doo wop world are contained in this box set. The info book that comes along with the music isn't as good as the original one, but it's got great photos and stories. How can you go wrong with the Penguins' Memories of El Monte, or the Admirations' Bells of Rosa Rita?!! It's just an all around great collection!

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous obscurities
Because all of the really famous songs went into the first Doo Wop Box, the selection here runs to the obscure but very deserving regional hits that in many cases are superior to the "hits". Many of the cuts here I never heard before this, and they really have to rate among my all-time favorites now. One of the best music purchases I have ever made!

5-0 out of 5 stars Obscure Doo-wop classics
The difference between DWB#2 and DWB#1 is that DWB#2 contains lesser-known, but by no means less enjoyable tunes. Even thoguh I was born in 1964 and thus did not expereince listening to Alan Freed's show or seeing these groups at the Brooklyn Paramount, I still love the hell out of this music! Lots of fun stuff. Dig the atmospheric "Woo Woo Song' by the Valentines and "Love Potion #9 by the Clovers. Enjoy the silliness of the original "Rubber Biscuit" by the Chips. Chafe somewhat at the politically incorrect "Ling Ting Tong" by the 5 Keys and "Japanese Sandman" by the Cellos. Smile at the streetcorner style of "Zoom Zoom Zoom" by the Collegians. Enjoy "Memories of El Monte" by the Penguins ("Earth Angel II?"), and the Frankie Lymon clone "Rendezvous With You" by the Desires. But enough of that-just buy the damn thing and love it!

5-0 out of 5 stars The memories keep rolling on!
I bought both Doo Wop sets - 202 Vocal Group Gems, and I'm not in the least bit disappointed. These groups and their songs brought back so many good memories of my growing-up years in Staten Island, New York City, in the '50s. I'm 62 years old and still can remember my childhood pal telling me all about the "Moon Dog Show," carried by a New Jersey (Newark, I think) radio station. It was a black oriented music station playing something called Rhythm & Blues. We listened to our radios late into the nights - without our parents knowing about it - and began to "connect" with the new sounds in no time at all. Entering high school in 1952, we were at the right place and time for the Rock 'n Roll explosion soon to come. Allan Freed had yet to "hit" the town, but the groups surely had. We were rocking and bopping throughout our four years, and of course, were members of a doo wop group of our own - The Seniortones of Port Richmond High School.

Rhino has done an outstanding job of compiling these songs and putting together two great 79-page books to go along with the collections. Listening to the originals always means so much more in that what those sounds bring back in terms of good feelings and vibes is just a bit difficult to describe. Anticipating a sound here or there from the originals is also a treat, something definitely missed with so many other collections purported to be "the best," etc. These collections ARE the best. Whether listening to the "A" or "B" sides, you just cannot escape being brought back to another place and time when life was defined quite differently for all of us. For so many of us back then, it was the music that helped us cope and propelled us into what was to come. Looking at the pictures of the groups and catching up on the assorted memorabilia and recording details adds yet another dimension to these collections - great idea!

As these years have passed on by, I still find myself drifting back to my favorite sounds - before (and in spite of) the "pretenders" - before Elvis - before Frankie Avalon (ugh) - before the "pop culture" ran the real Rhythm & Blues based Rock 'n Roll aground. Thank you, Rhino, for putting these groups and their songs all together for us in what will be a cherished keepsake of so many years gone by.

4-0 out of 5 stars Not as strong as Vol. 1, but still worthwhile.
Rhino really did a great job with the two sets of Do Wop Classics. I think that the first set had a handful more notable classics, but this volume also does an admirable job.

Included here are Dion & the Belmonts "Where or When", Curtis Lee's "Pretty Little Angel Eyes", "You Belong To Me" by the Duprees. There is a good number of other treasures in this set.

66. Till the Night is Gone: A Tribute to Doc Pomus

Born Jerome Felder in Brooklyn in 1925, Doc Pomus was stricken with polio at age nine and spent most of his life on crutches or in a wheelchair. That didn't stop him from imitating his hero Big Joe Turner in Manhattan clubs with musicians like Milt Jackson, Horace Silver, King Curtis, and Buddy Tate. He soon found he had a gift for writing witty lyrics to standard blues changes, and in 1955, a 17-year-old kid named Mort Shuman started hanging around Pomus's apartment as a sort of apprentice songwriter. Shuman wrote catchy pop/R&B tunes for Pomus's lyrics, and by '59 they had hits with Dion's "Teenager in Love" and the Mystics' "Hushabye." Before they broke up in '65, they had written 20 songs for Elvis Presley and at least half that many for the Drifters. After a 10-year retirement, Pomus started writing again with Mac Rebennack for albums by B.B. King, Jimmy Witherspoon, and Johnny Adams. Till the Night Is Gone: A Tribute to Doc Pomus reinforces the obvious point that Pomus's tunes should be considered American pop standards as much as Irving Berlin or Harold Arlen's compositions, and should be recorded again and again. The three greatest American songwriters of the '60s--Bob Dylan, Brian Wilson, and Lou Reed--are all on hand to pay their respects. Dylan turns in the disc's most surprising performance, a slinky, funky, country-swing version of "Boogie Woogie Country Girl." Reed injects a modern irony into "This Magic Moment" by contrasting a straightforward, optimistic vocal against grinding, apocalyptic guitars. Los Lobos and John Hiatt & the Guilty Dogs turn in invigorating, garage-rock demolitions of "Lonely Avenue" and "Mess O' Blues" respectively. In fact, the only misstep on the whole album is Shawn Colvin's ponderous, portentous take on "Viva Las Vegas." --Geoffrey Himes ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Viva Doc
Shawn Colvin brings meanings and nuances out of Viva Las Vegas maybe not intend by the Doc, but this is a great version. Got a good song? Need a good singer? Call Aaron Neville. What a voice, this ranks with his work on In The Still Of The Night from the Red Hot And Blue benefit album of a few years back.
This cd tribute is uniformly good from start to finish, and it seems unfair not to mention everyone taking part, but I'll just end with a recommendation to check out John Hiatt and his most excellent band chewing their way through Mess Of The Blues.

5-0 out of 5 stars An Obscure Gem
This is a fantastic CD. Any single one of these songs would be reason enough to buy the disc; together they are a bonanza. The highlight for me is the great B.B. King's rendition of "Blinded By Love"; the depth and resonance of B.B.'s voice send chills. I've long loved Elvis Presley's recording of "Viva Las Vegas" and the ridiculous movie it came from, but I also love Shawn Colvin's version from the ridiculous Lebowski. Cesar Rosas and Los Lobos do a number on "Lonely Avenue." Dylan, John Hiatt, The Band, Doctor John; every last one is great.

5-0 out of 5 stars One of my favorite CDs
I find myself listening to this one a lot, and why not? A great song is a great song, and Doc wrote hundreds. Favorites are Shawn Colvin's "Viva Las Vegas" (who wouldn't want to see the strip with a woman with a voice like that?) and B.B. King's "Blinded by Love," which to me is his most recent truly great performance. The only blot on this landscape is Lou Reed's "This Magic Moment," which is one of the most unintentionally hilarious hachet jobs I've ever heard. I mean, the Harmonicats couldn't have done a worse job; Reed, despite his links to Pomus, simply isn't a singer, and his band on this cut sounds like a garbage truck with an oil leak.

4-0 out of 5 stars reasons to buy the Pomus tribute
Los Lobos bluesy "Lonely Avenue" and Bob Dylan's rocking "Boogie Woogie Country Girl" get this tribute off to a flying start. But it gets better from there. There are two standout R&B tracks: a stem-winding "Must be a Better World Somewhere" from Irma Thomas and a sophisticated "Still in Love with You" from the rarely heard Solomon Burke. Dion's "Turn Me Loose" is also very strong. B.B. King, Shawn Colvin, and Roseanne Cash also deliver some fine performances. There's really no bad track. Highly recommended.

4-0 out of 5 stars The missing link from The Big Lebowski soundtrack
You can read the review above dissin' Shawn Colvin's version of Viva Las Vegas and walk away. Or you can trust your own ears, listen for yourself and catch her version of my personal favorite song from The Big Lebowski (it's missing from the soundtrack album, this is the ONLY copy I can find.). If you're a real Doc Pomus fan, I recommend 'Johnny Adams Sings Doc Pomus' as an addition. But don't miss this one. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Surprisingly Satisfying
I have to be honest and acknowledge that I ordered this dual CD set originally for the sole curiosity of hearing Yes' "Roundabout" & Phil Collin's "In the Air Tonight" in HDCD format. Well I was not disappointed with these two songs. I wish only that more titles could be released in HDCD - THEY ARE UNEQUIVOCALLY WORTH IT ON BOTH HDCD & CONVENTIONAL CD PLAYERS. Anyway, I was surprised with how I enjoyed many of the other titles too. Covering 50 years in a compilation is pretty risky since it requires a breadth of taste or at least curiosity on the auditor's part beyond their usual "sweet spot" and always leaves out some noteworthy absent (eg: ELP's "Fanfare for the Common Man"). All these songs were familiar, but I would not have purchased a CD for them; I am glad to have an intro to Ray Charles' "What'd I Say", Ben King's "Stand by Me" or Otis Redding's "The Dock of the Bay" to name just a few. Enjoy this HDCD experience - you will rediscover these songs even if you heard them a thousand times before. By the way, if you like this you must get the "Monster Jazz"' HDCD - it is breath-taking in a different genre! ... Read more

Groovy Joe Poovey? Who's that? I had never heard of him until I bought both of the Starday Dixie Rockabilly CDs. He has a great sound.

5-0 out of 5 stars All women should have a copy of this
I first bought this on cassette in 1995 - every song on it has touched my heart and at different times in my life each and every song has been applicable. My favorite track is Aretha Franklin's "Through Someone Elses Eyes." This song is so perfect for us women that can lose "ourself" in relationships. I think all women should own a copy. I'm now buying another CD for myself and more for friends as Christmas presents.

5-0 out of 5 stars Like a Shot of Adrenalin
This is an amazing collection of great songs from powerful women. I play it all the time in my car, and it really pumps me up. Wonderful collection, you'll never be bored. This is my favorite CD yet.

5-0 out of 5 stars SOUL SAVER
This continues to be a special gift that helped me through the roughest grind in my life. "Songs of Life, Love, and Womanhood." Having a friend entering the woes of divorce, I was happy to find it again. It's about loving yourself and womankind and not male-hating, folks.

Every song lifts and empowers. I'm thrilled to see there is another album now. Hits like: Annie Lennox-Why, Amy Grant-That's What Love Is For, Lisa Stansfield-(I'm) All Woman, Arethra Franklin- Someone Else's Eyes, Melissa Etheridge- Dance Without Sleeping, Carly Simon- Coming Around Again (medley with Itsy Bitsy Spider towards the end), Kathy Mattea-Walking Away A Winner, Tina Turner-The Best, and Taylor Dayne-I'll be your shelter; I cherish. Women for women--treat yourself, be a sister friend to a fellow lady--let's hope it catches on. Enjoy!

5-0 out of 5 stars Fabulous
This is an incredible colection of some of the best women vocalists and their songs. There is not a single song that I want to skip. (rare) Very soulful. Light some candles, slip into a hot bath and enjoy. You will not be disappointed.

4-0 out of 5 stars Just stay close at hand
This is a good collection of songs from the U.K. (although The Easybeats were from Australia and Los Bravos were from Spain). The songs date from late 1965 to early 1967. There is a good selection of songs here. You get big stars like Dusty Springfield and The Hollies. You get unknowns like The Smoke and Wild Uncertainty. Some of the songs here were hits in America, some of them were hits in the U.K. and some of them weren't hits at all. You probably won't like every song here (I didn't), but there are enough good songs here to make it worth getting.

Taken individually, Rhino's excellent British Invasion series seems like it would have a limited market. If, however, like me (and countless other Baby Boomers who see this music as the soundtrack to our adolescence), you are looking for an eclectic cross-section of British Invasion rock, then buy as many of these volumes as you can while Rhino still holds the license to these songs and keeps them in print.

There are familiar Top 40 hits: Donovan's "Mellow Yellow," Dusty Springfield's "You Don't Have To Say You Love Me," the Hollies' "Carrie-Anne," and the Tremeloes' "Silence Is Golden." There are other hits that rarely get anthologized: the Easybeats' "Friday on My Mind," Los Bravos' "Black Is Black," the Walker Brothers' "The Sun Ain't Gonna Shine (Anymore)" and the New Vaudeville Band's "Winchester Cathedral."

And because this is a History of British Rock (and not just British rock that were big hits in America), you get "Smashed! Blocked" by John's Children (which did not yet boast Marc Bolan as a member), the Small Faces' UK No. 1 "All or Nothing" and Wayne Fontana (minus the Mindbenders) on his solo UK hit "Pamela, Pamela." [The inclusion of Chad and Jeremy's "Teenage Failure" seems a bit odd only in that the duo had only one hit in their native England--"Yesterday's Gone"--and then moved to Hollywood. Granted, Chad and Jeremy were (and are) still British, but "Teenage Failure" was not a hit on either side of the Atlantic. (It's a pleasant enough song, but I sense that sometimes Rhino's hands are tied by the licensing agreements they can arrange.)]

Overall, this album makes for enjoyable listening and is guaranteed to bring back fond memories. RECOMMENDED

Compiled with the same care and attention to detail as the landmark Chess Blues box set, this set presents the rhythm & blues side of Chess Records and, in many ways, is the more entertaining of the two. Ninety-nine tracks cover the label's astonishing breadth of jump blues combos, vocal groups, and rock & roll pioneers. You can't help but be overwhelmed by all this great music. The work of giants like Chuck Berry and Bo Diddley sounds even more exciting in context with underrated gems from the likes of the Moonglows, Paul Gayten, and the Dozier Boys. No one is going to deny the greatness of Jackie Brenston's "Rocket 88" or Etta James's breathtaking performance on "At Last." But you haven't lived until you've laughed at Roscoe Gordon's "Booted," sung broken falsetto to Clarence "Frogman" Henry's immortal "Ain't Got No Home," or wrung tears from your hanky to the ambient strains of the Corsairs' gorgeous "Smokey Places." --Ken Hohman ...

5-0 out of 5 stars King of Anthologies Strikes Again!
Austin Super Producer David Sanger [NOT the New York Times reporter] has acquired a reputation as King of the Anthologies, because of his output of quality work in that type album. This is the first of two collections Sanger has produced honoring The Great American Highway [and as drummer for traveling band Asleep At the Wheel, Sanger knows highways!] The first two cuts are obligatory: the theme from the long-ago TV series "Route 66" and the song of that title, as sung by its composer, the late Bobby Troup. The rest of this one is a skilled, imaginative blend of songs recorded especially for this collection and catalog tunes unearthed in memory or research, including the only known CD availability of the '70s alt.country forerunner, The Dusty Chaps, with a drug-smuggling warning, "Don't Haul Bricks on 66." This great album tells a story or two (the Road and our fascination with it) and sounds terrific at the same time! A class AAA effort.

4-0 out of 5 stars Dusty Chaps: Tucson Home Town Heros!!!
Any compilation that includes a Dusty Chaps track is automatically worth at least 4 stars! The Chaps were songwriter George Hawke's showcase band in the late 70's and early 80's. In their element, a grimy beer joint attached to an old motel down on the Benson Highway, they kicked butt. "Don't Haul Bricks" may not be their greatest track, but its very worthy and makes this album a must for me, as their various albums are completely unobtainable.

4-0 out of 5 stars A gateway to Jason Eklund
Jason Eklund was introduced to me through this cd. He is truly a great songwriter and I encourage those who liked his track to buy all of his cd's. He is American music!

3-0 out of 5 stars Diamonds in the Rough
Though not of consistent quality throughout, this compilation features some fine performances and engaging lyrics regarding the great Route 66. The Jason Eklund track is the true standout and is worth the price of the disc.
