Product Description
Five CD set that highlights the absolute finest recordings for the Elektra label during their first (and some say finest) decade: 1963-73. Features the label's biggest hits, most famous artists and plenty of obscure classics as well. 117 tracks from the likes of Judy Collins, Eric Clapton, Tom Rush, Paul Butterfield, The Lovin' Spoonful, Queen, Dennis Linde, Carly Simon, Bread, The Wackers, David Ackles, Harry Chapin, Mickey Newbury, The Doors, The Stooges, Love, MC5, The Dillards, Tim Buckley, Nico, Tom Paxton, Phil Ochs and many more. Rhino. 2006.
Founded in 1950, Jac Holzman's Elektra label grew from its folk roots, embracing the burgeoning blues and rock scenes of the '60s and eventually becoming a major force in the pop music marketplace of the '70s. This five-disc set not only celebrates its years of ascendancy and experimentation, but also explores beyond the familiar into some very obscure but still potent recordings. The first four discs proceed in relative chronological order (the fifth is devoted to rarities and assorted efforts from the fringes). Introduced by the better-known songs and acts, the discs open with Judy Collins, Love (twice!), and the Stooges. Each disc is also its own little journey that reminds us of how rich Elektra's catalog is--the Incredible String Band, Fred Neil, Nico, and many more found their way into record collections of the era and continue to resonate. However, it's the more forgotten acts that make this box so exciting, as the Wackers, David Ackles, Plainsong, Paul Siebel, and many others burst forth from the speakers. Even among the well-known there are some nice surprises, such as an early version of the Doors' "Moonlight Drive" (sounding more like one of the label's folk-blues performers) and the harder-edged punch of Judy Collins's "Hard Lovin' Loser." --David Greenberger
