Some great oldies. Brings back some great memories of growing up in the sixties.
Fine tunes from way back when...

"Oldies but Goodies, Vol. 6 is full of great songs from the past--these "oldies but goodies" will really make you want to jump up and dance wherever you are! The sound quality is great and even though the cover artwork is nothing special we can ignore that and just get this CD for the fantastic music they pressed onto it!
Dee Clark begins the track set with a wonderful ballad entitled "Raindrops." "Raindrops" is a touching torch song and we don't always get torch songs from men. This song, however, is quite beautiful and moving; Dee Clark sings this with all his heart and soul and it shows when you hear it. Gene Chandler also scores big with his magnificent hit, "Duke of Earl." There's something about this number that I can't quite verbalize; but it's very special and I have always enjoyed this number greatly. I think it's very stately and confident about a love that has blossomed into a very special love and lifelong bond!
The Isley Brothers sing out "Twist And Shout" with all their might and it shows as I listen to it. The beat is excellent and the guitar work is outstanding. They play what I think is a harmonica and this works well to enhance the musical arrangement. Similarly, "Mashed Potato Time" by Dee Dee Sharp really rocks well--although, after all these years, it also has a dash of doo wop in it to make "Mashed Potato Time" is a fine hit. I really like "Mashed Potato Time" by Dee Dee Sharp; and I think that you will like it, too. Listen also for Dion & The Belmonts to perform their wonderful "A Teenager In Love;" this is song we all can relate to as we have all experienced a young love that doesn't always work out well.
The Ad-Libs do their "The Boy From New York City" with lots of style and confidence; and this works wonders for this ballad. They sing and play his flawlessly and it puts them straight into the spotlight--right where they belong! "The Boy From New York City" is a great tune that a young woman sings about her new rich boyfriend--and what woman can't dream of that? "Honky Tonk" is presented in two parts--as part one and part two. This is very well done and the occasional outcries from the band make this really rock.
"Those Oldies But Goodies (Remind Me Of You)" by Little Caesar is done with great sensitivity; this classic, timeless ballad is a charming love song that tugs at my heartstrings whenever I hear it. The CD ends with "Every Beat Of My Heart" by the wonderful Gladys Knight And The Pips; "Every Beat Of My Heart" has them sounding terrific--Gladys never sounded better!
Well, folks, if you like the "oldies," get this incredible CD and enjoy it!
