Album Review

Like any record company worth their salt, MCA knows a good gimmick when they see it, and when the millennium came around...well, the 20th Century Masters — The Millennium Collection wasn't too far behind. Supposedly, the millennium is a momentous occasion, but it's hard to feel that way when it's used as another excuse to turn out a budget-line series. But apart from the presumptuous title, 20th Century Masters — The Millennium Collection turns out to be a very good budget-line series. True, it's impossible for any of these brief collections to be definitive, but they're nevertheless solid samplers that don't feature a bad song in the bunch. For example, take Bill Haley's 20th Century volume — it's an irresistible 12-song summary of his Decca/MCA years. There may be a couple of noteworthy songs missing, but many of his best-known songs for the label are here, including "Rock Around the Clock," "Shake, Rattle & Roll," "Thirteen Women," "Dim, Dim the Lights," "The Saints Rock n' Roll," "Burn that Candle," and "See You Later, Alligator." Serious fans will want something more extensive, but this is an excellent introduction for neophytes and a great sampler for casual fans, considering its length and price. That doesn't erase the ridiculousness of the series' title, but the silliness is excusable when the music and the collections are good.

Customer Reviews

first ever

This was the foundation of rock it self it consist of one of the very first rock songs ever. Rock around the clock and for that Bill Haley I commend you.

Good Collection Of His Hits

Good collection of his hits. Classic hits of "Rock around the Clock" and "See ya later, alligator" are good ones to have. Nice compilation. Those are the two that stick to my mind. Good to dance to swing, jive and hustle dancing. So swing away!!

Let's Get The Swing Moves Going!

This CD has very good swing songs to dance too.
