    ProducerBrian Nevill (Compilation)

    The folks at Ace Records skillfully archive obscure garage rock, early R&B, and other now-marginalized American pop-music forms. Their MO, generally, is to re-release gems from the catalogs of tiny, forgotten labels. In this case, the label is Downey Records, a small, early-1960s California outfit that specialized in "teen" music. This compilation sheds some light on just how expansive that category became in the youthquake era. Here we have sticky-sweet love ballads, some late-era doo-wop, sexy soul music, and nearly punk-sounding rockabilly--and not a famous name in the bunch. As with all the Ace material, this compilation is a revelation.
