At one point several years ago, Jack Scott was one of the few artists of any consequence from the rock and roll era that I did not own a collection of. "The Best of Jack Scott (1957-1960) from Canada's Stardust label gives you a pretty complete look at the somewhat brief but successful chart career of this talented singer/songwriter/guitarist. In fact all 16 of his charted singles appear here along with 8 other tracks. Both his first hit "Leroy" and "Geraldine" are fine examples of the rockabilly sound. But Jack Scott also dabbled in other sounds like country and western, ballads and even doo wop. In fact 2 of his biggest hits "My True Love" as well as his classic "What In The World's Come Over You" would remind you more of doo wop than anything else. Jack Scott often utilized the considerable talents of the French-Canadian vocal group The Chantones as a backup group and they certainly enhanced the sound on a number of his recordings. The sound quality is wonderful and all appear to be the original Carlton and Top Rank recordings. The disappointing thing about this collection is the rather feeble attempt at liner notes. Why even bother? You might think that a Canadian record label might put a bit more effort into a disc by a Canadian born artist. Nevertheless, I am finding that the more I play "The Best of Jack Scott (1957-1960) the more I enjoy. Serious collectors of early rock and roll would do well to add this disc of hard-to-find tunes to their collection before it disappears forever. Highly recommended!

By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Out of the many CD's that I have purchased over the years, this is one that I keep handy as I play it at least once or twice a week.The songs are all excellent.Jack's vocals are top notch and
the musicians put out rhythm and blues/rock sounds that are phenominal to say the least.This is one great album.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Chart Mainstay From 1958 To 1961 September 11, 2007
Format:Audio CD
This 1995 CD comes from the Canadian-based Stardust Productions who also give you the excellent multi-volume series Treasured Tunes and Vintage Instrumentals. There are two pages of liner notes included (author unknown) concerning Jack Scafone, born in Windsor, Ontario, Canada on January 24, 1938 and who moved across the river to the Hazel Park neighborhood of Detroit, Michigan with his family at age 10.

After a brief 1957 stint with ABC-Paramount which saw two singles released in 1957, neither of which charted, Jack hooked up with the much smaller Carlton label and, in 1958/59, turned out nine Billboard Pop Hot 100 singles, two of which crossed over to the R&B charts. He then moved to another small operation, Top Rank, where he cranked out seven more Hot 100 charters from 1959 to 1961, including two more R&B cross-overs, and then joined the major player, Capitol, producing his final three in 1961. On all his hits in this period he was backed by the French-Canadian vocal group, The Chantones. His last hit came in 1974 for Dot Records when You're Just Gettin' Better was a minor Country entry at # 92 in July b/w As You Take A Walk Through My Mind.

This CD, however, gives you ALL of his major and minor hits for the Carlton and Top Rank labels from 1958 to 1961. I repeat the contents here to indicate which are in stereo (denoted *) and their performances on the charts, if any:

Baby, She's Gone - ABC/Paramount 9818 April 1957 b/w You Can Bet Your Bottom Dollar - omitted here, and Two-Timin' Woman - ABC/Paramount 986- Nov.
