"Sonny Till and the Orioles - Greatest Hits is a pretty good CD. It gives the listener a good idea of how great this group was during the late 40s and 50s. However, if you are a fan looking for the original recordings of the Orioles hits, you may be disappointed. In addition to having only 13 cuts on the CD, the recordings are not the originals, but rerecordings done in the early 60s. This fact is clearly noted in the liner notes that come with the CD, but is not mentioned in the description on Amazon. These recordings are included in a larger compilation available from Collectables that contains many of the original recordings as well as this complete CD. If you have the cash, get the complete Collectables set, which includes 73 cuts. If you can't manage that, take a look at one of the other Orioles CDs on Amazon. As far as I can tell from listening to the samples, the recordings on those CD are the original recordings"
