Eric records previously known for its high quality reissues of early r 'n' r on 45s finally has make the jump to the digital format. Although their catalog is small and timing is erratic, their stuff is worth the wait. This piece is one of a series of CDs featuring 50s and 60s pop. While some of the tracks on this CD are fairly well covered other places, there are a number of gems here that certainly justify the "Hard to find..." title such as "Little Ole Man", "Angel On My Shoulder", "Al Di La", "Let's Think About Lovin'" and others. All but five tracks appear in true stereo (including "Deep Purple" which is not easily found in stereo elsewhere). The sound quality is excellent overall considering the obscurity of some of these tracks. A few are a bit noisy but this is preferable to the practice of some reissues using noise supression to the point of making the music flat and lifeless. Top of the line product here. You won't find this stuff any better elsewhere at this point in time.

I am a huge fan of Sixties music. For more than 20 years I have been making my own taped compilations from my 6,000-plus record collection. When I bought the book "Billboard's Hottest Hot 100 Hits," I began making such tapes as "The Top 50 Songs of Lennon-McCartney," "The Top 40 Songs of the Beach Boys," "The Top 100 Songs of the Sixties," but when I started doing individual years ("The Top 100 songs of 1961," etc.) I would hit a snag. Some songs were out of print, and had been for years. Usually I would end up buying the 45--if I could find it. One of the singles I bought--the extremely hard to find "Little Ole Man" by comedian Bill Cosby--is now available on this terrific 20-track CD; most of them for the first time and many of them appear in stereo.
Here's what you get (including peak chart position and year of issue):
1. "I Got You Babe" Sonny & Cher #1, 1965 (stereo) 2. "Little Ole Man" Bill Cosby #4, 1967 (stereo) 3. "Deep Purple" Nino Tempo & April Stevens #1, 1963 (stereo) 4. "Angel on My Shoulder" Shelby Flint #22, 1960 (mono) 5. "Johnny Get Angry" Joanie Sommers #7, 1962 (stereo) 6. "Apple Blossom Time" Tab Hunter #31, 1959 (stereo) 7. "White Silver Sands" Don Rondo #7, 1957 (mono) 8. "Ebony Eyes" Everly Brothers #8, 1961 (stereo) 9. "Let's Think About Living" Bob Luman #7, 1960 (stereo) 10. "Al Di La" Emilio Pericoli #6, 1962 (mono) 11. "A Lover's Concerto" The Toys #2, 1965 (mono) 12. "Don't Say Nothin' Bad" The Cookies #7, 1963 (mono) 13. "B-A-B-Y" Carla Thomas #14, 1966 (stereo) 14. "Take a Letter Maria" R.B. Greaves #2, 1969 (stereo) 15.

I am a huge fan of '50's and 60's music, so this collection is aimed for folks like me. Unfortunately, there is too much here that is rather obscure, and much other which is locatable elsewhere (they do call this "Hard to Find", after all).
If, like me you want a copy of Cosby's spoof "Little Old Man", you will buy this, cause it cannot be found elsewhere. I guess the marketers put a few songs like that on each disc of this collection, and hope we'll buy a bunch of discs for one or two songs. You can fill in the name of any one of about a third of the songs on this disc and come up with the same result.
Sometimes they are right. But there is way too much filler here. I call myself a fan of the genre, but only heard of 60% of the songs or artists. Not the kind of value any but the most fanatical of us want.

A great 20 track pop and soft rock compilation. Includes a hard to find Top 10 hit by Bill Cosby, "Little Ole' Man," his remake of the Stevie Wonder chestnut "Uptight." You get awesome sound quality throughout, as expected from Eric Records. Tracks include early sixties cuts like "Let's Think About Living" by Bob Luman and "Deep Purple" by Nino Tempo and April Stevens. Artists include such oldies radio staples as the Everly Brothers, Sonny & Cher, the Vogues, the Cookies, the Toys, plus some of the artists you just do not hear anywhere these days (Don Rondo, Joanie Sommers, Tab Hunter, Shelby Flint, Rose Garden, Connie Stevens, the Marketts). Plenty of stereo versions including some first-time ever on CD. Highly recommend all of the first four of this series also. Collectors enjoy!

The 20 tracks on this CD were remastered very well. The songs sound like I remember them except with the crisp CD quality not available with small AM radio speakers. The title is a bit misleading though. Most of the tracks are readily available in other CD collections, like "I Got You Babe", "Deep Purple" and "Take A Letter Maria". If you're like me, you want to purchase the CD for the few that aren't like "Let's Think about living" and "Next Plane to London".
