iTunes Review

As part of Norton Records' continued cheekiness, the label issued this digital-only release as an introductory collection for the iPod generation. As a label that's never stopped pressing vinyl, Norton has also remained true to its original aesthetic of presenting obscure, out-of-control, oddball rock 'n' roll, garage rock, and greasy R&B by mostly unknown artists; few of its acts would have rated a recording contract from a conventional record label when Norton opened for business in 1986. The 45 tracks here deserve to be heard. There are recognizable names like The Dictators, Ramones, The Sonics, Question Mark & The Mysterians, and Doug Sahm, plus Norton stars like Hasil Adkins, Andre Williams, Esquerita, Jack Starr, Roy Loney, and The A-Bones and great obscure tracks by the likes of Bunker Hill, Incredible Kings, and Screaming Joe Neal. The result is a wide-reaching collection of what's essentially an alternative history of rock 'n' roll: one where the loudest, craziest music gets its rightful due and no sanitized version (à la the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame) need apply. The digital booklet is essential for higher learning.

I Hate CD's!!!!! This rules!!

If you like Rock and/or Roll this is a no miss. Norton is the best reissue label on the planet.If you like your R&B greasy and with actually rhythmn and blues(not that club culture wannabe gangsta estrogen fest mall rat garbage that has hijacked the name) or instro-rock or rockabilly,or proto-punk/garage or if you just plain rock, then this is for you!! That guy who gave it one star...screw you pal."I like the HARDER rockin stuff" Hey Tesla how about us brainiacs go review some Mastodon or other noodly rock-less new metal growling horse crap and give IT bad reviews cuz We arent like "into it" maaaaaaan. Reviews are to give a person who is looking roughly thru genres a heads up, not an invitation for your worthless opinion about whatever youre FEELING that day. Stay in growling Viking land with the other fascists and finger jocks DUMMY!

Re: Dummy

Um, I rarely get involved in these skirmishes, but I have to say that "rock out!!!" (I think that was the guys lame name) is, in fact, a dummy. Other dude's tirade against said fellow is totally justified. You don't have to like it but don't rate something that you clearly have no business rating. Any sane person with a mild grasp of musical history and the contextual importance of this music would not have dissed it so off handedly. And it does happen to ROCK OUT!!! (dummy).


ANDRE WILLIAMS, LEGENDARY STARDUST COWBOY AND they have SCREAMIN' JAY HAWKINS on here. This is for sure a vinyl and garage rock lovers wet dream!! PLUS anything on NORTON RECORDS is A-OK with me!!!
