Club Records (8)

Profile:
Spanish label based in Madrid that reissued, in the main, obscure 50s doo wop, rock n' roll, rockabilly and rhythm n' blues on several long-running series.
Seemingly compiled in a great hurry the album track-listings are littered with inaccuracies, spelling mistakes and omissions.
Mainly 10 tracks-a-side vinyl albums compiled in the 80s, recently CD editions have been sighted on auction sites.

Spanish label compiling rockin' stuff from (mainly) the 1950s on their Grab This & Dance series. Completely unauthorised... or maybe copyright laws are a bit more... flexible in Spain (on the other hand Roy Orbison is 'The Big 'O'' and Jerry Lee Lewis is 'The Killer' on the track-listing - so maybe they're shady after all).

Despite cramming 20 tracks onto their releases the sound quality is surprisingly high. With very cheaply printed sleeves (same 'artwork' on both sides), by volume 15 Club had graduated to putting some (poor quality) pictures of the artists on the covers.
The people who compiled these albums had great taste though. There's a lot, and I mean A LOT, of very rare, ultra-obscuro rockabilly on these albums which would cost you tens of thousands to pick up on original 45s. There's also some mean instrumentals, dancin' rhythm n' blues, some novelty rockers and, quite often, at the end of each side there's a ballad to get you in the smooching mood.

I went to a few record fairs a while ago and some guy was selling them out of a cardboard box for £4 a throw. The next time I saw him it was £3, then £2 so I 'grabbed' virtually an entire set from him. I'm only missing about 4 volumes now and I look for them wherever I go. The ones I picked up from the fair had been stored somewhere weird..... cuz the state of the sleeves was a bit rough and some of the LPs were badly warped... the type of thing you can keep fruit in. Oh yeah - and a lot were white labels! Freaky. I mean - what gives daddy-o!? Luckily he had multiple copies of most titles and I managed to get a cleanish set.

I think they were made for rock n' roll parties - you get 8 or 9 boppin' tracks per side and the quality is so reliably high you know you don't have to skip any. At the end of each side - as I say - you can have a smooch.
I don't know why I like these albums so much. They look terrible and they are so obviously knock-offs. It's just the choice of source material I guess - it's five-star premium grade '50s rockin'.

Club managed 25 volumes of Grab This & Dance (that's 500 tracks of primo rockin' - yow!). They also compiled at least 10 volumes of Pure Rockabilly as well as another series Wild Wild Rockin' AND a whole load of doo wop, jive & stroll on yet another series.
It's a cheapskate way of getting some great music - but I take what I can get these days.

Some of these titles now seem to be issued on CD with different cover art (but still not very good). I've noticed them on eBay.
