Bobby Vinton's Lost 45's
(4 out of 5 stars)
"A very different album from 1964's "Greatest Hits", this collection of chart entries includes ten of Vinton's releases from August of 1964 through July of 1966. While none of these songs achieved number one status,this album contains some very strong selections and sinces all of the material did indeed grace the Hot 100, it is a true Greatest Hits set. "Clinging Vine", left off the earlier "GH" in favor of "Mr. Lonely" is the oldest of the group, having hit #17 in September of 1964. "Long Lonely Nights", the hit follow-up to "Mr. Lonely" is also featured here."Tears" available only on this album, is a highlight of this collection. Vinton is in fine rich voice and gives the song the full treatment. Other material first released on CD here includes "Dum De Da" and "Petticoat White" which was Bobby's current hit at the time of the original album's release. The album features a great cover painting by Sid Maurer in an orange hue,in an effort to boost sales during the Halloween season of 1966. First released on CD by Epic in 1989."

"I have three other Vinton GH CD's but as far as I know this is the only compilation to ever include "Lonely Girl"--theme from "Harlow" (1965). Not a memorable film or a big Vinton hit compared to his higher profile work, but it is a personal favorite of mine. I am pleased to have added it to my collection. There are a few other tunes also on this CD also missing from other compilations. As you hear them you'll remember them but, again, they are lesser known titles within his primary body of work. If you have Vinton on your iPod, adding several tunes from this CD will allow you to create a more complete GH playlist. Oh, and this CD nor most of its songs are NOT available on iTunes."
NO FILLER HERE

"This is a good CD. Usually "greatest hit" packages contain some fodder or b-sides. Not this one. Every song on the CD charted as an A-side. Some tunes are really great such as "Petticoat White" and "Clinging Vine". These would be in the hard-to-find singles section at your local record store. Did I say record store? What is that about?"
