Shindiggin' Through The Vaults

Ah, Pickwick Records, the sign of quality [I didn't say HIGH quality, just a particular level of quality].

Here's a cheap compilation from 1962 - so cheap that the rear sleeve has no information about the actual release, but simply spotlights other albums in the "Design Spotlight Series". Some of these tracks are OK, and most are old/off-brand (or in Jan and Dean's case, live) recordings by current stars. The Four Seasons track, for example, was originally released s a b-side by Frankie Valle & The Romans in 1959.

The Four Seasons - This Is Real
Floyd Cramer - Snow Deer
Ronnie Dove - No Greater Love
Jan and Dean - Something A Little Bit Different
Don Convay - Pony Time
Jerry Lee Lewis - Bonnie B
Irma Thomas - Set Me Free
Chuck Jackson - Come On & Love Me
Solomon Burke - Friendship Ring
Jimmy Clanton - Just A Dream
