"It still amazes me that a reviewer can prepare a review of a CD package but admit that he has never heard of perhaps as many as half of the selections. First, the well-known ones (heard by said reviewer) speak for themselves as classics of the era. In addition, the Moonglows aka Havey Fuqua and the Moonglows, a group which later had Marvin Gaye as a member, had their song overshadowed by the McGuire Sisters' version. (It was a racial thing I think). "Hearts of Stone" by the Fontane Sisters is well-remembered and was covered by at least one country singer and there was a later hit instrumental version by the Bill Black Combo. "Black Denim Trousers..." was a hit for Cheers, a threesome that included multitalented future gameshow host Bert Convy. (He once showed a "video" of him and one of the other two singing the song from back when). The reviewer in question never heard of "Only You" by the Platters?! No "Tweedledee" by Lavern Baker who had many songs in the 50s? And "Crazy Little Mama" was a catch phrase from the song "At My Front Door" in the 50s. Now that you know, you can see the package here is well worth the price. Stay away from reviewers who write "I do not remember" or "who am I?""
I Just Love Oldies

"I was not born yet when these music became so popular. I heard it thru my older cousins who played them. Thats how I started to like Rock and Roll, classic songs and oldies (50s-70s). I never got tired of listening to these collections and they are really wonderful songs, lyrics, composition compared to the type of music nowadays."
