COMPACT DISCS

THE FIVE KEYS

EL TORO R&B 119 2CD SET -  THE FIVE KEYS OUT OF SIGHT OUT OF MIND - THE COMPLETE CAPITOL RECORDINGS
The Five Keys are one of the most revered vocal groups of the 50’s. They started and achieved legendary status with their recordings on Aladdin and Capitol. While their Aladdin recordings have been compiled many times, we found that their Capitol output was not that easy to find in its entirety, just a few albums with the hits, but leaving out many great tracks. Now, for the first time, in this package, you have all the sides they released at Capitol from 1954 until 1958 - 47 tracks, plus seven tracks  backing jazz great, Jack Teagarden and two extra bonus recordings of the group on the Alan Freed Radio show .We believe that this is the greatest Five Keys Capitol package ever produced!

BROOK BENTON

ETCD 1050 CD BROOK BENTON BROOK BENTON THE SINGER – A ROCKIN’ GOOD WAY VOL. 1
 As most of the Brook Benton compilation albums on the market are focused either on the hits or the ballad thing, we wanted to share with you here what we think are Brooks best offerings for the young audience of the time… a nice mixture of Pop, R&B and Rock and Roll, taken from the first sides on Okeh and Epic, to things recorded on Vik and Mercury. We are sure most people will be surprised with this collection. Give it a listen, and enjoy, it’s just a matter of time you are going to fall in love with Brook Benton’s  voice and style.

BROOK BENTON AND OTHERS

ETCD 1051 CD VARIOUS ARTISTS BROOK BENTON THE SONGWRITER – A ROCKIN’ GOOD WAY VOL. 2
  Brook Benton’s list of compositions goes on on and it would be an impossible task to try to reunite them all  but with this collection you have a great cross section of the style and quality of the man’s songwriting talents.



V/A - TEXAS TENAGE BOP - ROYCE PORTER & FRIENDS

ETCD 1054 CD VARIOUS ARTISTS ROYCE PORTER & FRIENDS - TEXAS TENAGE BOP.  
Our teen Texas tornado was born slap-bang in the middle of the Lone Star state and got his break on Sweetwater's "Saturday Night  Jamboree". Inspired to get hot in 1955, when Elvis appeared on the show, Royce has since waxed exciting singles for Spade, Look, Mercury
and D, and also backs his pal, Ray Doggett, with his talented guitar picking.

V/A - INFAMOUS INSTRO-MONSTERS VOL. 2

ETCD 1056 CD VARIOUS ARTISTS INFAMOUS INSTRO-MONSTERS VOL. 2  
We have done it again! In our effort to bring justice back for instrumental R&R we have rescued a new bunch of long time forgoten singles with no no other criteria than: kick off teh singers and let the band play! So stand up and get ready to dance, the INSTROMONSTERS are back from the grave!


BRIOLES

ETCD 6051 CD BRIOLES DOWN DOWN DOWN
 BRIOLES’ music is mainly based on 50’s R&R but they’ve added more elements that –right from the start- have conformed their unique and recognizable sound. They’ve usually been described as psychobilly or neorockabilly -labels they don’t dislike but don’t define them accurately.
With Down, Down, Down  the band keeps developping  his unique BRIOLES sound.

BIRTH OF THE SURF ERA  7

ET-15.012 7" VINLY EP - VARIOUS ARTISTS - BIRTH OF THE SURF GUITAR
 Before 1961 there were many bands playing instrumental R&R, but hat year two teenage outfits from California managed to gather in their shows loads of surfers who took their music as hallmark, every saturday night, once their surfboards were parked.
The Belairs from Redondo Beach and Dick Dale & The Del-Tones from Balboa didn’t realice they were inventing Surf Music when releasing their first 45’s but they would make the genre found it’s own way and now, for the first time, you can have them together on coold old vinyl!
Let's Go Trippin'!!
