3.0 out of 5 stars The wrong direction for a Great Label June 22, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
As a kid I loved Imperial records. They has so many great releases I liked. Ricky Nelson, Fats Domino, Slim Whitman, etc. And while the collection is nice, 3 Cd's in fact. it focuses only on one year, 1962. Imperial records was a few past it's heyday in 1962 and the selection of music shows. 1958 or 1957 would have been better years to focus on. But I see this company ahs devoted a number of releases to the year 1962. I'm not sure why that is.

The title. "Drummin' Up A Storm" is a reference to a Sandy nelson song. That fine. But Ricky Nelson was much more popular on the label than Sandy ever was. At the most each artist is represented 3 times, once on each CD. So 3 Fats Domino, Ricky and Sandy Nelson tunes. The Turbans, have some neat song on here also. Sadly the Fats and Ricky songs are one that were not that popular. Although "Travellin' Man" was a major hit for Ricky.

I won't define the whole CD here. It is a good listen. And it brings back some good memories. Bu the true Imperial records is so much more. So much was omitted. If this company is going to feature 1962 then they should start at 1956 and do a collection for each year. THAT would be The Imperial records Story.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent collection of Imperial records sides October 18, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
The One Day Records record label retrospectives provide an excellent balance of features and cost. The cost is really reasonable. As a result, the features are a bit limited, but One Day has provided an excellent package considering the cost. The artwork is a excellent (dare we say cool?). Each disk looks similar to a 45 record. There are also informative, but not exhaustive, liner notes and pictures of a few of the artists. Sound quality is, for the most part, excellent too. It's obvious that some of the selections are taken from the original 45's. But, hey, isn't that how you remember the music?

The Imperial records edition of this series contains some excellent blues tracks by Lightnin' Hopkins as well as some really great R&B tracks. Very enjoyable collection.
