My lament about other volumes in this series is that the marketers put too few songs like that on each disc of this collection, with the hope we true fanatics would buy a bunch of discs for one or two songs on each one. This collection has far more great songs than most of the predecessors in this series.
Unlike other volumes in this series, there is not too much filler here. This volume has the kind of value which will appeal to the casual fans of the genre as well as the most fanatical of us. I am not sure that anywhere I have seen "Nothing but a Heartache" by the Flirtations, Millie Small's "My Boy Lollipop", Chris Montez's "The More I See You.", "Pata Pata" by Miriam Makeba and one of my favorites, "Just Like Romeo & Juliet" by The Reflections. The first and the last of these I have never seen on disc anywhere. These make this worth the price of admission for me. Doubtless, other fans will have their own two or three favorites, all different.
Superb recreations of some great recordings. Worth the price.
Collectors will enjoy getting Johnny Cawford's "Rumors," the Dixiebelles' "Down At Papa Joe's," Millie Small's "My Boy Lollipop," and Chris Montez's "The More I See You." These cuts never sounded better. Included is an eight page booklet with details on each song. Most of these songs are seldom played these days on oldies stations across the country. Get the whole series while you can.
Six pages of liner notes by Greg Adams fill you in on some interesting backgrounders to each selection and, on the reverse, is the Billboard chart performance for each. If I were to offer a suggestion for future releases it would be to add the original single label number, but that is a minor quibble.
This volume presents 21 hits from 1960 to 1969, 16 of which were Top 20, and if I had to list them in descending order of their difficulty to locate, it would be as follows: Tracks: 7, 12, 15, 17, 21, 9, 5, 8, 13, 14, 18, 19, 10, 11, 20, 1, and 16 - with the remaining five relatively easy to find.
In my case, it was the combination of seeing Johnny Nash's Hold Me Tight, Jo Ann Campbell's A Kookie Little Paradise, and Dickey Lee's Laurie (Strange Things Are Happening) all on the same disc. The hits of each of those artists are, as most serious collectors will attest, very difficult to find on CD.
If you have not sampled any from among this series, let me just say that each is a gem on its own. Highly recommended.
