Subject: I have found a CD that I think you would enjoy
I was very pleasantly surprised
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I bought this album around the time it was first released after hearing some of the singer on a girl group collection. I was unfamiliar with her work except for that collection, so I bought this album as somewhat of a shot in the dark. I'm very glad I did! My favorite songs on this album, and now some of my favorites from the early 60's, are "Unbelievable Guy" and "Soft-Spoken Guy", originally the navy singles' flip sides. If I hadn't bought this album, I would have missed out on those two songs. For me, they alone were worth the price of the album."
Diane Renay "Navy Blue" CD
(4 out of 5 stars)
"Great CD. Worth the purchase price if collector of "girl group" sounds. This CD is a time capsule of sixties heartbreak and found love songs. Not "serious" 60's music but WONDERFUL "bubble-gum" pop. OFFENSIVE? LETS GET REAL!"
Reissue Of Diane Renay's 1964 Album
(4 out of 5 stars)
"This a reissue of the original LP from the mid sixties. All songs are in mono. Sound quality is mediocre. A note on the back of the CD states the following:"Some distortion may exist on this CD due to the non-availability of the original master tapes."Interpret that how you want. Lost/destroyed. . . . . or someone won't release them? Diane Renay had several cute songs on this LP if you like this kind of stuff from the mid sixties. Too bad the sound quality wasn't better. Thanks to Collectibles for making it available at all.For the record, the original LP was issued in true stereo. However, I have been told by reliable sources that the stereo LP was a mixture of true stereo and re-channeled stereo. Navy Blue did not appear in stereo but other songs like Kiss Me Sailor did. Offensive? Oh, Paaaallleeeeese!"
