More hiss than an angry cat

"The content on this disc is hard to beat. It has a good number of solid, desirable tracks - many of which are difficult to find on other compilations. This is the only reason I gave it two stars. But there's one BIG problem...
I have NEVER heard sound this bad off a pre-recorded CD before. Even in the first track, you don't have to listen very deeply to hear scratches and pops. And some of the titles have so much hiss in the background, you'd swear you were listening to a half-worn cassette tape. When I first put this disc in, I started checking the speakers because I thought something was awry with my system. Nope - just dreadful sound from the disc. It literally sounds like someone dubbed the songs from LP to cassette and then over again to compact disc.
This one isn't digitally remastered, it's belt-sanded."
A handful of hard to find hits in one place.

"Another great compilation. Where else could one find all these great old songs? Do The Casinos have a greatest hits album? I bet not. But "Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye" is a classic of the era, and one of the sweetest love songs of all time. What a timeless line: "If you must go, oh I won't grieve. If you wait a lifetime before you leave."I also love "What Time Is It" by The Jive Five (where are they now?) and the relatively obscure "Your Husband, My Wife" by The Brooklyn Bridge. This was a hit in New York (where Johnny Maestro ruled first with the Crests and then a full decade later with the B. Bridge), but seemed to get little airplay anywhere else.Twenty four songs make for a full value in this one disc. At least twenty are worth listening to time and tme again. Great value."

"The only thing that keeps me from rating 5 stars is that a couple of these songs are almost unheard of, and were certainly not big hits.(Give him a great big kiss, I can never go home, Your husband, my wife.) But there is a lot of music for the money. High quality sound, all original music. All in all, a great CD!!"
