Overview

Two of Bobby Vee's 1962 LPs, Take Good Care of My Baby and A Bobby Vee Recording Session, were reissued by Beat Goes On for this 1999 collection. Albums from this early era can be quite interesting from a historical perspective, and though there are some inherent weaknesses -- from today's perspective -- in the formula that Vee was following, these two releases make a fascinating pairing, showing off two slightly different approaches for grafting rock & roll to teen idol-style pop. The albums are somewhat similar, but also just different enough from each other so that there's a fair amount of variety to the music. The songs from Take Good Care of My Baby have a little more muscle to them, while those from A Bobby Vee Recording Session are more polished and elaborate in their production, with less of the preceding album's occasional emphasis on electric guitar. The shadow of Buddy Holly also fell across both records, directly or indirectly, not just through the presence of one of his songs plus guitarist Tommy Alsup (on Take Good Care of My Baby) and Vee's covering of songs by the Crickets, but to some extent also in style at various moments. The 1998-vintage remastering is state of the art and captures every nuance of the vocals and accompaniment, and the annotation by Snuff Garrett is an added enhancement to the CD. ~ Bruce Eder & Jenna Woolford

This two albums on one CD (with 22 songs )was given some of the best engineered studio treatment by the master producer : Snuff Garrett . You won't find better arrangements on any of that era's other artists or labels. Bobby took the directions well and moved from Buddy Hollie's shadow into his own style.You can't go wrong with this CD and there are some gems here that are not on the usual greatest hits albums .Sit back , relax and enjoy !!!!
