These CD's Come With The Book!


The book comes with the two CDs (listed above).  These are the first two of what has become a 17 volume CD series called "The Heeey Baby Days Of Beach Music".  This companion series (produced by Ripete Records) adds an additional 300 cuts creating an incredible total collection of 346 great cuts from a truly remarkable era.  Most of these recordings were made by bands and vocalists featured or mentioned in the book.  The collection is rare and eclectic, and is one that will both fascinate and please lovers of the music.


For Beach Music, it will further define its unique position in R&B music circles.  Our hats go off to Marion and Karen Carter at Ripete Records for making it happen.  Kudos for Julian Fowler who continues to be an MVP.  Thanks to all record executives, bands and musicians whose spirit of cooperation allowed it to happen.
