5.0 out of 5 stars "...Just Love Me...All Night Long..." November 23, 2010
Format:Audio CD
Released November 2010 on Bear Family BCD 16672 AR, "Rocks" offers up 34 slices of Ella Mae Morse' varying styles - Easy Listening, Jazz Vocals, pumping Rhythm 'n' Blues and even Rock 'n' Roll - and it's a peach. "Rocks" covers 1942 to 1957 on the Capitol label and at a stonking 84:33 minutes - doesn't scrimp it on content or value for money.

Like all the titles in this extensive series, "Rocks" comes in a 3-way foldout card digipak with a large detachable booklet in the centre (52-pages for this one). The CD label itself repros the 78" for "House Of Blue Lights" - a big hit for her and Freddie Slack in 1946 - complete with its Capitol Records label bag - and that's again repro'd in full on the flap beneath the see-through tray (a nice touch).

The substantial booklet features extensive liner notes from Page 2 to 30 by KEVIN COFFEY with a Discography for all 34 tracks from Page 31 to 45 by Kevin Coffey, LAWRENCE J. ZWISOHN and Bear Family's owner RICHARD WEIZE. Especially worth noting is that the 40-page album-sized booklet which came with Bear's extensive 5CD box set (from way back in 1997) was a dull black & white pictures affair... "Rocks" has considerably improved on that - there are lovely full-page colour shots of her two important album covers, "Barrelhouse, Boogie, And The Blues" (1954) and "The Morse Code" (1957). Added to that are in-studio-recording snaps which are new, trade adverts, sheet music and many of her American Capitol singles are pictured throughout - a typically top job done by Bear.

The remastered sound is by one of their best tape engineers JURGEN CRASSER - he handling the stunning "Blowing The Fuse" series from 1945 to 1960 (I've reviewed all 16 volumes) and the "Sweet Soul Music" series from 1961 to 1970 (all reviewed too).

5.0 out of 5 stars Ella rocks! April 4, 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I don't know what rock I lived under as a teenager in the 50's so that I missed Ella. I do remember hearing a song or two, however, when my older sister was a teen. Thanks to NPR, I discovered her again for the first time. I heard several songs that later others made into hits. Her voice is pure - well, it's just pure. Rockabilly, rock, soul, country, jazz - she combined it all to make a pure, yet eclectic sound all her own.

I wish Ella had received the honor she was due in her lifetime. She belongs in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.
