Back in the rockin' '50s, invariably chart-busting R&B records would inspire a slew of covers, follow-ups and some damn fine copy-cat wannabes. Our second dip into the world of answers, copycats and follow-up songs presents us with Big John Green's sequel to Chuck Berry's first #1 smash of August 1955, "Maybelline," continuing the "chase" with "Come Back Maybelline". Louis Jordan's 1947 #2 chart topper, "Open The Door, Richard" is picked up by The Four Aces of Berkeley with "Richard Ain't Gonna Open That Door" from the same year. Little Eva's 1962 #1, "Loco-motion", is given an impressive match by Peggy Gaines, and Ray Charles' 1956 opus, "Lonely Avenue" is offered a sparkling rebirth six years on by Pearl Woods. Johnny Otis, Mary Wells, The Bobbettes and Freddy King make stellar appearances plus 22 other worthy platters that will restoke your fondness for golden songs from R&B's heyday. There's something for everyone on this 30-song collection. The Bop never stops.
