  • Various - Please Mr Disc Jockey: The Atlantic Vocal Group Sound 3CD Boxset (CD)


    Compiled and annotated by author and broadcaster Clive Richardson, Please Mr Disc Jockey features 90 vocal group recordings dating from 1951 to 1962, released on the famed New York label Atlantic and its Cat and Atco subsidiaries. With pivotal tracks by the labels most famous groups The Clovers, The Drifters and The Coasters, alongside a generous selection of recordings by the less-compiled likes of The Cardinals, The Diamonds, The Chords, The Sensations, The Royal Jokers, The Ray-O-Vacs, The Superiors and The Hollywood Flames, the 3CD set will appeal to fans of rhythm & blues and doo wop, and anyone interested in the history of rock & roll and the development of soul music.

    Commencing in 1951 with the February session which yielded both sides of The Clovers’ first R&B hit, the chart-topping Don’t You Know I Love You, and the recording a few weeks later of the first of three hits for The Cardinals, Please Mr Disc Jockey then chronicles the arrival of other hit-making vocal groups to Atlantic, including label stalwarts The Drifters (initially fronted by Clyde McPhatter), The Chords (aka The Chordcats and The Sh-Booms), The Sensations, The Coasters (that peerless vehicle for Leiber & Stoller’s songs), one-hit wonders The Bobbettes and migrants from Los Angeles, The Hollywood Flames. By the early Sixties, Atlantic was home to Twist And Shout originators The Top Notes, as well as The Isley Brothers and The Falcons. Ringing the changes, Please Mr Disc Jockey ends with that great staple of British beat groups (Ain’t That) Just Like Me by The Coasters.

    Please Mr Disc Jockey: The Atlantic Vocal Group Sound has been conceived as a companion to Fantastic Voyage’s earlier club-centric 3CD set Right Now: Atlantic Club Soul And Deep Cuts. Taken together, these sets offer the ideal survey of the legendary label’s rich rhythm & blues legacy.
