Format:Audio CD
The Roulette label was launched sometime towards the end of 1956 by Joe Kolsky, Morris Levy, George Goldner and Phil Khals with directorship turned over to Levy and responsibility for production put in the hands of Hugo Peretti and Luigi Creatore (as Hugo & Luigi with Their Family Singers they had a minor Pop hit in 1955 with Mercury - Young Abe Lincoln).

Under a cloud of sorts, with close ties to the Mob in New York and Levy running the show like a tin-pot dictator (covered in the single page of liner notes in the cardboard fold-out jewel case and written by Colin Salter), Goldner left after selling all rights to his earlier labels Rama, Tico and Gee to Levy in order to make good on heavy gambling debts (these would be rolled into the Roulette label). Hugo and Luigi also departed for RCA Victor.

Their first, and second-biggest star in terms of overall record sales/hit singles, back of Tommy James & The Shondells (not covered here - see the Westside Records 3-CD set The Roulette Story - Hits & Rarities) had to be vocalist Jimmie Rodgers who, from 1957 to 1961, racked up 19 Pop hits, with his first also being his best. In late summer, Honeycomb surged to # 1 Top 100 AND R&B as well as # 7 Country. That's here as is the follow-up Kisses Sweeter Than Wine - # 3 pop, # 6 Country and # 8 R&B late in 1957. Close on his heels was the all-male trio, The Playmates, who contributed 10 hit singles from 1958 to 1962, most of them comedy sides led by the late 1958 # 4 Beep Beep, about the little Nash Rambler that passed a Cadillac while in 2nd gear. That's here as is their first hit, the ballad Jo-Ann, which peaked at # 19 in early 1958.

2.0 out of 5 stars POOR QUALITY August 12, 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you have a choice and your budget can afford it, puirchase the import version of this set that has 3 cds which is of much better quality and a more comprehensive song selection.

1.0 out of 5 stars overseas bootleg - low quality recordings June 2, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I thought this would be a nice package for the price if licensed legitimately. Firstly, it is not and upon opening it immediately noticed they had a photo of Buddy Knox...which wasn't even him. That worried me, then I put the CDs in. While a few are ok (probably taken off legit CDs) quite a few of are low quality (vinyl) and tracks like Jo Ann by The Playmates is substantially fast, probably something "One Day Music" took off the internet or someone's homemade CD. Either way, I put this right back on ebay for .99 - get the legit Roulette collection if you can find it. This is only worth the few dollars it is selling for, if even that.
