Let the Good Times Roll [Import]
(United Kingdom - Import)
"New York's classy Coed label blazed a trail through the US charts in the late 50s and early 60s with a series of Doo Wop and pop singles which really were something special. "Bandleader and music publisher George Paxton might never have formed Coed were it not for the changes wrought upon the American record industry by the rock'n'roll explosion of the mid-50s. Paxton had much in common with Archie Bleyer, another former bandleader who had launched a successful record label, Cadence. "Coed released 87 singles of which 32 reached the Hot 100. US compiler Walter DeVenne has concentrated (though not exclusively) on the glorious vocal group records which formed a large part of Coed's repertoire. "Mastered in stereo from the original tapes by 'Little Walter' DeVenne and our own Duncan Cowell, the Coed Records Story reflects the care and attention Coed originally lavished on these classics from the golden age of New York pop.
