As far as I know the set you are asking about is bootleg.
no liner notes and I suspect whoever is selling on ebay
is just ripping copies of their cdr set.

And to Don Charles re:

 I have found over the years that keeping a good
cartridge and stylus is the best way to avoid skippage,
and of course a quality turntable. The vinyl could be
damaged but usually a good stylus upkeep is the best
remedy.

The vinyl may just need a good cleaning also, and of
course tracking force on the tone arm is another key
factor.

Long live vinyl!

Don,

Here is a copy of a message I've posted before. Maybe I
could help.

Since last December I've started a company that
specializes in restoring and salvaging damaged records.

If you have any very very precious recordings that you
really care for but which are in poor state, I might help
you.

Depending on the state of the recording and the time
spent to restore it can vary tremendously from just a few
days to several weeks. And the cost would vary
accordingly.

As I said this is really interesting for recordings that
you cannot get anywhere else and that you'd like to hear
as if they were almost new. The result can really be
amazing and some of the list members for whom I have done
CDs can vouch on these results.

I will be glad to make special lower fee to members of
the list.

Also since I can understand that the idea of parting from
a very favorite recording can be somewhat uneasy what I
recommend for people who are far away from my part of the
world is simply to have a friend or relation make a CD
>from the recording and then send me the CD. We can work
>from a copy.

Finally, just in case, we can also work from a broken
record. Yes, yes ! Provided it is not broken in a hundred
different pieces but a record broken in two or three can
generally be saved. Of course this one would have to be
sent as is, but since there is no more risk...

So if you're interested, just drop me a line.

Thanks

Frank

As far as I know, you only get CD-Rs, I don't think
there are any regular CDs around. But in any case this
collectyion is an absolute must.

Talking of movies that portray the early years of rock
'n' roll, don't forget "The Idolmaker," with music
written by (you guessed it) Jeff Barry and performed by
Darlene Love, Colleen Ann Fitzpatrick (now known as
Vitamin C), Jesse Frederick, Peter Gallagher, Sweet
Inspirations (with Cissy Houston), Nino Tempo and Ray
Sharkey.  Loved it! Wish the soundtrack was available
on CD.  The script was "inspired" by the career of teen
idol impresario Bob Marcucci.  Look for The Brady
Bunch's Maureen McCormick in a cameo as a slutty music
journalist.

I do agree that the first two boxes are far better than
the later two but..when you're a completist... Besides
there's some unreleased and/or hard to find tracks on
the later boxes which are just incerdible.

Hi Marc
I know nothing about Aki but he was involved in
co-producing, with Bob Relf & Earl Nelson ,some super
Jackie Lee 45's on UNI & Capitol...so there's a West
Coast Bob & Earl/Barry White tie-up somewhere(post-Fred
Smith era?).I may have some other 45's with his name on
but i can't think of any at the moment. I'd like to
learn more too!.

Don, I love the movie (Ray Sharkey was GREAT) but my big
problem with the movie IS the soundtrack.

With the exception of  "Shelly", nothing sounds like the
early sixties....it all sounds like 80s music!! Even
Tommy Dees big song, "Here Is My Love" Just doesnt have
that 60s feel. sorry!!

Phil Chapman: finally got to the Phil Spector article
Recommended reading indeed. Thank you.

Joey Stec: Thank you for the lead to
http://www.sonicpastmusic.com.
There are a couple of

tracks I've been looking for I'm sure you have there.

Marc Miller: I always thought Aki Aleong was a Hawaiian
surfer type. Was he is Sheriff & the Revells? Were they a
Hawaiian group too? Do you have any background on them?
And what ARE they singing about?!? ("Shombolar" is one of
my great faves, too!)

Anyone know any background on The Moonstones, "Lover Come
Back," Dolton c. 1964? Strange track - (sounds like)
mixed M/F vocals over driving but acoustic track.
