CD Reviews

Wonderful collection of "Hard to Find" tunes!
John A. Kuczma | Marietta, GA USA | 06/18/2000
(5 out of 5 stars)

"The Dick Bartley "One Hit Wonders" series has a lot more than one thing going for it. These discs feature a wide variety of music that placed on the Top 100 Charts during the 1960s. Volume One features classic vocals like the Wee Five's "You Were On My Mind", the lesser known but much better Barry & the Tamerlanes "I Wonder What She's Doing Tonight" (as opposed to the Tommy Boyce/Bobby Hart single of the same name), and Joey Powers' "Meet Me At Midnight, Mary." There are also popular instrumentals like David Rose's "The Stripper", Kai Winding's "More" and the beautiful "Cast Your Fate to the Wind."As with any Rhino collection, the mastering is superb and the sound magnificent. Yes, I only gave it five stars, but this disc (and the one's that followed in the series) rates enough stars to fill a small galaxy. Don't miss it!"
One Hit Wonder'ful'

"I've sometimes purchased CDs just to get one cut. In this case, two of the entries made the price of the disc worth the cost. I had not heard 'Do it Again, Just a Little Bit Slower' by Jon and Robin since it was on the top 40 radio station WHLO in Cleveland when I was a teen, so I was surprised to see it available on CD. It's one of those songs that you can listen to over and over again without tiring of it. Also, 'Midnight Mary' was one of my favorites back then, though I thought the full title was 'Meet Me at Midnight Mary', which is probably why I hadn't found it before. The mastering job done by Rhino is commendable. Most of the cuts are in true stereo. A very worthwhile purchase."
Good for all the one hit wonders

"I bought this for 'I wonder what she's doing tonight' and 'Last Kiss'. I forgot about all the other great song's on this CD. BUY IT IF YOU LOVE ANY OF THE SONGS ON THE CD THEY ARE GREAT"
