Performer Notes
  • 2 LPs on 1 CD: DEE CLARK (1959)/HOW ABOUT THAT (1960).
  • Includes original release liner notes by Barbara J. Gardner.
  • This very well-mastered and choice reissue from Collectables assembles Dee Clark's first two long-players, Dee Clark (1959) and How About That, both originally issued on the Abner label. The annotation is minimal, but the packaging is handsome and the sound is excellent, and there's not a bad song among the two dozen here, among which is included Clark's signature hit, "Hey Little Girl." But there's a lot more than that fine piece of Bo Diddley-based rock & roll to recommend this set -- Clark put a lot into his LPs, in terms of range, and there's some old-style R&B (veering sharply toward blues), plus some excellent soul-flavored pop (including a Gershwin tune and a cover of Sam Cooke's "It's Time to Say Goodnight," aka "The Time Has Come," as it's listed here). And the singer provides a handful of pretty good originals, too, and to top it off, there's a conceptual piece called "The Convention" that's a superb three-minute account of how R&B and rock & roll made their way into mainstream music. ~ Bruce Eder
Professional Reviews
Living Blues (1-2/01, p.83) - "...Clark's pipes glistened here..."

Record Collector (magazine) (p.99) - 3 stars out of 5 -- "[T]he mysterious combination of Clark's cold tone and ethereal orchestration can stay in your head long after the record's stopped."
