This Really Did Bring Back Memories
Starshine | Ohio | 03/20/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)
"I remember being about five years old and performing "Tears On My Pillow" and "A Million To One" for my family on top of our coffee table.Hearing these songs again truly did "Bring Back the Memories" for me, funny considering I was only three when this album was released.
These songs sound as great today as they did 16 years ago.New Editions harmonies were tight, Ralph Tresvants voice sounds sweet and angelic throughtout the album and the guest appearance by Little Anthony are some of what made this album so special.The best songs here are "Earth Angel", "A Thousand Miles Away", "Blue Moon" and "Since I Don't Have You".The highlight of this album has to be "A Million To One" where the guys give an amazing performance.The only.."new" song on the album is "Bring Back the Memories", a cute song where the men of N.E sing about how the songs on the album are special and nostalgic and comment about how different things were when songs like "Duke of Earl" were originally released in comparison to the 80's.
I highly recommend this album to anyone who loves doo-wop,New Edition or like me enjoyed the warm memories of a time when things were much more simple...whether that be the 1960's or the 1980's."
WONDERFUL ARRANGEMENTS OF OLDIES

"I DISCOVERED THIS CD A FEW YEARS AGO. I ACCIDENTALLY PICKED IT UP IN A RETAIL STORE ATTRACTED TO A COVER THAT LOOKED LIKE ONE FROM THE 50S AND 60S. AT THAT TIME I HAD NEVER EVEN HEARD OF THE NEW EDITION . I WAS IN MY EARLY 50S AND JUST DONT LISTEN TO THEIR USUAL MUSIC, WHEN I PICKED UP THE CD AND SAW THAT ALL THE SONGS EXCEPT ONE WERE GREAT OLDIES FROM THE 50S AND EARLY 60S MY CURIOSITY FORCED ME TO BUY IT. AFTER ALL HOW BAD COULD THESE GREAT SONGS BE. WHEN I LISTENED TO IT I WAS I WAS THRILLED WITH MY PURCHASE. I REALLY HAVE TO SAY THESE ARE FANTASTIC ARRANGEMENTS OF THOSE GREAT OLDIES. I AM NOT GOING TO SAY THAT EVERY SONG IS AS GOOD AS THE ORIGINAL BUT I WILL SAY THEY ARE ALL VERY CLOSE TO BEING AS GOOD AS THE ORIGINAL. I DONT THINK THERE ARE ANY BETTER COVERS OF THESE SONGS. IT MAKES ME FEEL BAD THEY DID NOT DO MORE OF THESE OLDIES ALBUMS INSTEAD OF THE CONTEMPORARY STUFF THEY DO. IN FACT WITH MANY OF THE ORIGINAL ARTISTS FROM THE 50S AND 60S DYING OFF AND OTHERS GETTING TOO OLD TO PERFORM THESE GUYS COULD REINVENT THEMSELVES DOING OLDIES SHOWS. GIVE THIS ALBUM A CHANCE THE ONLY BAD THING I CAN SAY ABOUT IS THAT THERE ARE ONLY 10 SONGS ON IT. I WOULD HAVE LIKED ABOUT 90 MORE. ALL YOU OLDIE FANS BUY IT. YOU WILL BE GLAD YOU DID."
Boston's "Jackson 5" covers the "oldies-but-goodies"!

"Contractually,New Edition released their fourth album,this one,in 1986. In the three previous years,they released their first three,one per year. Johnny Gill,Ralph Tresvant,Ronnie Devoe,Michael Bivins and Ricky Bell do excellent covers of hit songs from the fifties and early sixties(back when their parents were teenagers) on this album. One Top 10 hit from this album is EARTH ANGEL,a hit for the Penguins in 1954. Also there's Gene Chandler's 1961 hit DUKE OF EARL. Many "oldies-but-goodies" fans will love this album especially with TEARS ON MY PILLOW. My mother and a few friends of hers are those fans. You can see on the cover that the quintet are spoofing a fifties-style R&B performance. Original NE member Bobby Brown had left the group after the release of the group's third album,ALL FOR LOVE. Gill filled in for Brown. Brown,in '86,released his not-too-successful solo debut KING OF STAGE. His second album,DON'T BE CRUEL,followed in 1988 and spawned four Top 20 hits. The other "oldies-but-goodies" are excellent!"
