I have this collection, but under the title "Rockin' All Night" on Del-Fi and it is a bit shorter, but has all of RV's best work.In 1959, shortly after THE CRASH, I bought Richie's only existing LP on vinyl. I wore it out and eventually gave it away, so I was glad to find this compilation on CD a couple of years ago. I have always been a great Buddy Holly fan, and have everything he ever recorded. However, when you listen to this album and realize that Ritchie was not yet l8 when he died, you conclude that we lost a musical genius who, if he had lived, may well have surpassed Buddy in his influence on rock and roll. Ritchie had IT, whatever IT is...poetry, soul, passion, charisma. Of course, "La Bamba" and "Donna" are the great hits of his brief lifetime, but "In a Turkish Town" and "Malaguena" show the promise of an adult, accomplished, self-confident RV that alas, was never to be realized. This is a fine collection, and essential to anyone who wants the best of the 1950's. Thank God that Ritchie laid down so many tracks before he left us, but I will always wonder what he could have done had he lived through his next decade. He and Buddy died together after having briefly performed together, and each was a true giant.

Good CD, but even better is the Ritchie Valens Story. It has Bob Keane doing wonderful naration of Ritchie's recording history and life. As far as "Bluebirds Over the Mountain," that is not the song that comes over the radio when you learn of Ritchie's death in the movie La Bamba. The song interrupted by the radio bulletin is "Over the Mountain and Across the Sea" performed by Johnnie and Joe.

Great compilation of Ritchie Valens that lives up to its title.

Tracks 21-28 are his personal rehearsal tapes made at home. Ritchie and his guitar, stripped to bare essentials, are equal to much of his studio work. My impression is Bob Keene pushed him a little in the studio to pick things up. At home his great voice is accompanied by an instinctive and more natural slow bop rhythm that makes for a rare treat indeed.

Pacoima's own Ritchie Valens at seventeen was truly phenomenal.

This album is loaded with all my favorite classic Ritchie. Takes me back to good times b4 the music died, when life had dreams of the future and that future was a world in which good men conquerd evil.
