Rama Story

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Cub Koda
This 2 disc set brings together 61 tracks from this early George Goldner run label. Although Rama only had a three year run as a label, they made significant inroads, especially as a doo-wop specialist with seminal tracks from the Crows "Gee", the Wrens "Come Back My Love", theValentines "Lily Maybelle" and the Heartbeats "A Thousand Miles Away". But there's also some errant pop sides and some fine rockabilly aboard as well from Don "Red" Roberts, Little Billy Mason a white Frankie Lymon sound-alike with guitar band backing, and Roc LaRue. A delightful two disc set that shows off the many sides of this interesting label.
