Product Description

For the first time, the "Hard To Find 45s on CD" series ventures into the 1980s with volume #14, brimming with 70 minutes of classic Top 20 hits, many of which are out-of-print on CD. As always, we present only the correct single versions in true stereo from the original master tapes (including the CD debut of the single version of Dr. Buzzard's Original Savannah Band's "Cherchez La Femme"). Highlights include the terrific but rare "I Love You" by Climax Blues Band, "The Captain of Her Heart" by Swiss duo Double, and the '80s-flavored update of "Puttin' On The Ritz" by Taco. Six of these songs reached #1 or #2 on the charts, including the much sought-after hits "Undercover Angel," "Easy Lover" and "Baker Street." All in all, a terrific mix of thoroughly enjoyable pop gems! Expect the famous sound and packaging quality found on all the Eric "Hard To Find 45s on CD" volumes. We actually use three sound engineers on every track! Includes a 12-page booklet with detailed biographies of all the artists by Greg Adams. No real oldies collection is complete without these "Hard To Find 45s!"

INTRODUCTION:

Eric Records is a very reputable reissue label. I still have 45 rpm singles on Eric Records. The 1st volume of Hard To Find 45s on CD was first released in 1996. If you have purchased that CD, congratulations! That CD is out of print, and currently selling at the Eric Records website for $95.00, plus you have to order at least 10 other CDs at the same time! Wow! Speaking of Hard To Get!

The most outstanding aspect of Hard To Find 45s on CD series is that quality is first class: (1) Source: from original master tapes, (2) original 45 rpm single versions (not album versions), (3) stereo, whenever available, and (4) first class remastering with the highest quality sound.

CONTENT:

This Volume 14 set contains 19 pop songs from the 70s and 80s, with quite a few rare gems that you instantly recognize once the song is played. Since Amazon.ca did not provide a track listing, I have compiled a detailed song listing (with chart position in both US and UK, year, and personal interesting comments and facts about artists), which is as follows:

01 It Never Rains In Southern California – Albert Hammond (US 5/1972) *singer/songwriter from England: Leapy Lee’s Little Arrow & the Pipkins; Gimme Dat Ding; this popular song did not chart in UK; he later wrote To All The Girls I’ve Loved Before for Willie Nelson, and Nothing’s Gonna Stop Us Now for Starship!

I like the idea behind this series. There are many one-hit-wonder songs that I wish I had but can never find. This CD from the series contains hits from the 1970's & 80's. It's a good CD with 19 songs and good sound quality. I picked it up for the following songs: "Break My Stride" by Matthew Wilder, "Torn Between Two Lovers' by Mary McGregor, "How 'Bout Us" by Champaign, "The Captain of Her Heart" by Double, "You'e Only Lonely" by JD Souther, "Cool Night" by Paul Davis, *"Key Largo" by Bertie Higgins (very hard to find), *"I Love You" by Climax Blues Band (also very hard to find), and "The Promise" by When In Rome. I do like all other songs (except one), but the others I've seen elsewhere (that was my reason for deducting one star). Enjoy!

It's a good mix of the oldies, and it makes me remember the kinder, gentler day of my youth. It's just plain fun!
