Rock 'N' Soul Series

This series featured album covers in the format of a newspaper, with stories of the particular year on both the front and back of the jacket cover. The volumes were subtitled "The History of Rock in the Pre-Beatle Decade of Rock" on the record jackets, but this subtitle did not appear on the labels. The series was compiled by Steve Resnik, who used the Vee-Jay masters (among others), which means that the Olympics songs are the Mirwood remakes, not the Arvee or Tri-Disc originals, and the Little Richard tracks are the Vee-Jay remakes, not the Specialty originals. The entire series is mono.
