From the text on the back of the cover:

Dear DJ/Producer/Record Store Mogul/Radio Station/Journalist

You hold in your hands a piece of R&B history, one of a limited edition of 500 ten inch albums, specially pressed to help promote the five latest releases from wonderful Ace Records

This Album contains 10 tracks, 2 from each of the albums mentioned below.

CH 55 THE ACE STORY VOL 3
"Cut It Out", a great R&B rocker from the earliest stages of the late great Joe Tex's fine career, plus "Sahara" an atmospheric instrumental workout from Dr Johns' 1962 period, provide just a hint of what's in store for purchasers of the Ace Story Vol 3 which contains a total of 16 great tracks from artists including Huey "Piano" Smith, Jerry McCain, Sonny Boy Williamson, Bobby Marchan etc.

CH 59 RICHARD BERRY "GET OUT OF THE CAR"
The menacing tones of Richard Berry provided hitmakers Leiber & Stoller with just the sound they needed to turn the Coaster's recordng of "Riot In Cell Block 9" into a million selling smash "The Big Break", Berry's follow up to that record, and "Rockin' Man" provide a tantalising taste of Berry's versatile style which is displayed to great effect on this, his best ever album.

CH 48 JUST ROLLIN' WITH JOHNNY OLENN
Johnn'ys exciting cameo appearance in the classic rock'n'Roll movie "The Girl Can't Help It", could have launched him on a big career. Olenn was a great singer with an unusual voice and he was managed by Buck Ram, who also looked after the platters. However, further fame was not in store for this superb 18 year old singer from San Antonio, Texas and today original copies of this album change hands for around $100 a time while Olenn is rumoured to be living in obscurity in Houston.

CH 58 YOUNG JESSIE "HIT, GIT & SPLIT"
It remains a mystery to us why this great singer never achieved more widespread success, at least in the R&B field. On this, the first ever album compiled from Young Jessie's Modern Flair and R.P.M. Recordings, the singer displays a style and class which should have made him a huge star.

CH 47 THE BEST OF SHIRLEY & LEE
The singing sweethearts of R&B, available for the first time ever in europe, on an album of their classic Aladdin Material.

NB THIS IS A PROMOTIONAL ALBUM FOR RADIO AND IN STORE PLAY ONLY. NOT FOR RESALE. ATTENTION RECORD & TAPE EXCHANGE, DISHONEST JOHN'S, VINYL SOLUTION, ROCK ON, SEA OF TUNES, LUIGI's, CHEAPO CHEAPO ETC. WE JUST MIGHT SEND THE BOYS AROUND IF WE FIND THAT YOU HAVE THIS IN STOCK.
