Play It Again - R&B Answers Copycats and Follow-Ups Volume 2 CD

Back in the rockin' 1950s, invariably chart-busting R&B records would inspire a slew of covers, follow-ups and some fine copy-cat wannabes.
This second dip into the world of answers, copycats and follow-up songs presents us with Big John Greer's sequel to Chuck Berry's first #1 smash of August 1955, Maybelline, continuing the chase with Come Back Maybelline.
Louis Jordan's 1947 #2 chart topper Open The Door Richard is picked up by The Four Aces of Berkeley with Richard Ain't Gonna Open That Door from the same year.
Little Eva's 1962 No.1 Loco-motion is given an impressive match by Peggy Gaines, and Ray Charles' 1956 opus Lonely Avenue is offered a sparkling rebirth six years on by Pearl Woods.
Johnny Otis, Mary Wells, The Bobbettes and Freddy King make stellar appearances plus 22 other worthy platters that will restoke your fondness for golden songs from R&B's heyday.
