As the other reviewers have noted, finally these recordings appear on domestic release, rather than the expensive Record to CD copies you see in Europe.
Best cuts? (To me anyway)
Dinner With Drac Part One: EXCELLENT. I have been looking for this one for a while, (He has a TV show in the 50's, 60's, and had a top ten wih this one).
? And The Mysterians "Can't Get Enough Of You Baby": Smashmouth did a cover of this a few years ago, and the original is great! Also, "96 Tears" finally on CD in its original form.
Senator Bobby (Kennedy) singing "Wild Thing" is one of THE highlights. This originally issued in 1967 at the time he was assassinated. Needless to say, it was pulled from the airwaves almost immediately. The flip side, (I wish they issued!), was the late Senator Everitt Dirksen singing the same song. (They are both impersators not the real deal). At the time, they were priceless and are historical artifacts of their time.
"I (Who Have Nothing" By Grand Funk Railroad Manager Terry Knight is included. The original Bob Seger tune "Heavy Music" before he signed with Capitol is a real find. Early Kinks (Long Tall Sally) and Peter Best singing "Boys" (Former Original Beatle) are other great selections. The Tymes "Wonderful Wonderful" and "So Much In Love" are finally to be had.
As stated by others, its great to see Chubby Checker and Bobby Rydell on CD. "Limbo Rock" and "Volare" respectively are favorites.
With the hits of Dee Dee Sharpe (Mashed Potato), The Orlons (Don't Hang Up) and Len Berry's Dovells (Brisol Stomp) and more songs now available, many collections will now be complete.
This is simply a MUST for any DJ or music affectionado. These include some of the biggest hits of all time that cannot be gotten elsewhere. (The Twist for example)
Sound quality, liner notes, and economical packaging is a plus. Here's hoping that they start issuing catalog albums too!
