Item description for Ace Records: Labels Unlimited by David Stubbs...

To read Ace Records is to explore the history of modern music and to discover the stories of the people that made it. Visually stunning and hugely entertaining, the book chronicles this fascinating label and profiles a diverse range of artists including BB King, John Fahey, Lee Hazlewood and Art Blakey & The Jazz Messengers.

From humble beginnings at a London market stall, Ace Records has gone on to change the face of popular music. Now the world's foremost blues, rockabilly, soul and rock 'n' roll reissue label, Ace Records has been responsible for unearthing lost classics and neglected pioneers for over three decades.

Ace Records has traveled far and wide resurrecting the forgotten giants of the American music scene. From the earliest pre-war blues and Cajun recordings made in the Deep South, to the explosion of rock 'n' roll, to the soaring soul sounds of the 1960s and 70s, the label has rescued a rich cultural legacy and preserved this music for generations to come.

Reviews - What do customers think about Ace Records: Labels Unlimited?

Disappointing - for diehard fans - maybe?  Feb 21, 2008
Perhaps the premier reissue label in the world with Bear Family, Rhino and Hip-O Selects as seconds - Ace and its associated labels have set the standard for meticulous reissue sound quality, detailed notes and an incredible love of the music. Unfortunately this rather turgid and poorly edited book (how could anyone notate Ricky Nelson as Ricky Wilson??) totally misses out on the real passion and personalities of Messrs Armstrong, Carroll and Churchill. It is light on any real detail regarding these actual Ace family members with Ace themselves having put more detail with far better quality production into their annual (free) catalog and added to this with their monthly e-mail newsletters. Provides very little detail on Roger Armstrong's major work in the Stax (Fantasy) archives (or the Concord takeover) or Ady Croasdell's sterling work in building the UK Kent label - without doubt THE most important soul label in the world (Interesting that XM Radio's Soul Street's playlist reflects to the tee each month's Kent reissues!!). Overall a wasted opportunity.
