"When the Original Sound label began packaging their "Oldies But Goodies" LPs in the late 50s, it was a new concept to have original hits by the artists who made them famous gathered together on one album. It was a good idea and a groundbreaking one. But man, before the advent of the compact disc, people who wanted oldies were usually better off collecting 45s. A lot of times those old LP collections were hampered by poor sound and, now and then, an alternate recording of a song included instead of the hit version. I'd have to say though, that previous to the CD era, Original Sound probably did it better than most. When Rhino got into the game a few decades later, they didn't want to settle for inferior versions. They made sure that they used the hit versions of the songs and mastered them from the best available sources. Rhino was an inspiration and now there are lots of great reissue labels out there producing quality compilations for the oldies fan. Original Sound isn't one of them. Their CD series leaves a lot to be desired. The sound quality is lacking in every volume I've heard. On this particular volume, the non-hit Candix version of The Beach Boys' "Surfin' Safari" is used instead of the hit Capitol version. Also the compilations themselves seem to have been thrown together without a whole lot of thought or planning. Most of the songs on a particular volume will span the period from the late 50s to the mid-60s and then a song from the 70s like "Tie a Yellow Ribbon..." or "Feelings" or "Mr. Big Stuff" will be thrown into the mix. Couldn't they at least focus on a particular decade for each disc?
My advice to anyone who wants to build a library of quality reissues of classic pop singles: avoid Original Sound releases. There are too many other high quality collections available these days."
As Usual, Very Good (mostly)

"The Oldies But Goodies collection on Original Sound are generally good buys, and this one is no exception. Many of the selections are unarguable classics - Lesley Gore's "It's My Party", "Come Go With Me" by the Del(l?) Vikings, Frankie Ford's "Sea Cruise". Other items are perhaps not classics in everyone's mind, but still great - Bettie Everett's "Shoop Shoop Song", Preston Epps' "Bongo Rock" and especially "Don't You Just Know It" by Huey "Piano" Smith. But, as is usual for this series, there are a few what-th'-heck-is-THIS-doin'-here selections, and as usual, most of them are from the 70's. There are three 70's tracks here, and noting that Tony Orlando & Dawn's "Tie a Yellow Ribbon" is the best of the three says volumes. Well, your CD player has a track skip button for a reason. In general, a great collection."
