Kicksville Vol #3 - LP

Kicksville Vol #3 - LP

Record  Details:

Norton Records has been attempting to prove that there are still great rockin' sides from the 1950s left to be unearthed with their Kicksville series, and there are 18 good-to-great vintage rockers awaiting inspection in the third edition.

Compiled from studio acetates that were never released back in the day, Kicksville, Vol. 3 includes unissued material from Elvis-esque crooner Ral Donner, rockabilly powerhouse Benny Joy, and Gary Usher, who would later go on to a distinguished career as a producer and songwriter.

But most of the artists on this collection are thoroughly obscure, which makes the consistent quality of this disc all the more impressive. From the whacked-out guitar sound of Danny Dell's "Fun Lovin' Baby" and the hard-stompin' menace of "My Love Is Gone" by Ray Pate & the Rhythm Rockers to the frantic boogie of Kenny Parton & the Jones Boys' "Jump, Wiggle and Shake" and the R&B-accented stroll of "This Feeling Is Killing Me" by Eddie McCall & the Three Shades, this is a solid collection of first-era rock & roll, and while the audio quality is uneven (as you might expect given the age and format of the source materials), most of this sounds strong enough to qualify as a pleasant surprise, with plenty of dynamic range and minimal surface noise.
