CD Reviews

This Gets 5 Stars For One Reason
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Ordinarily, when reviewing a 10-track CD with neither liner notes nor discography, I would seldom go higher than 3 stars. But this one from BMG in 1997 is an exception simply for the inclusion of three songs that are extremely hard to find in their original format.

The 1955 renditions of The Ballad Of Davey Crockett by Bill Hayes (# 1), "Tennessee" Ernie Ford (# 5), and Fess Parker (# 5) are relatively easy to find on numerous compilations, but this one by the composer of the Dragnet theme, which hit # 14 in 1955 billed to The Voices Of Walter Schumann, just does not appear to be available anywhere else.

The same can be said for Vaughn Monroe's Black Denim Trousers And Motorcycle Boots, which made it to # 38 in late 1955, and Love Me Tender by Henri Rene & His Orchestra (# 44 in late 1956/early 1957).

The sound quality is excellent."
