Overview

Art Laboe is a legendary DJ who came to prominence in the '50s in Los Angeles playing doo wop and R&B. He became a promoter, club owner, and syndicated radio star; his Killer Oldies show is still going strong. He is also a label proprietor with Original Sounds. The label's Dedicated to You series is made up of ballads, dance tracks, and classic sides from the '50s to the '80s. The wide range of songs makes for a sometimes disjointed listening experience as not all the segues between eras make sense. Still there is a lot of fine R&B, soul, girl group sounds and funk that will make you want to dance and reminisce. The highlights of this volume are the Dells' "Stay in My Corner," Blue Magic's "Sideshow," El Chicano's "Sabor a Mi," and Otis Redding's "These Arms of Mine." Just that brief list of songs should give you an idea of how broad the scope of the series is. It is certainly a wild ride that takes you from Johnny Ace to the Mary Jane Girls, credit goes to Laboe for making it a ride worth taking.
