Silver Disc: The Ace 25th Anniversary CD Review

by Tim Sheridan

As label-based compilations go, this single disc from the British reissue house is one of the better efforts. While other such self-promoting projects emphasize diversity to boast a rich roster, Ace has thankfully focused on R&B, blues, and roots music, so the play list flows quite nicely. From Pee Wee Crayton's jump guitar on "Huckle Boogie" on through Fatback's unky "Wicky Wacky," you get a delightful disc and a nice overview of their releases.
