Only in America...a capitalist's dream!
Anonymous | New York | 07/08/2003
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This collection is impotant not just as nostalgia but as an example of what brilliant marketing and advertising can do to an entire's the American way! Short jingles that stay in your mind forever..and so do these products! Whether it's a Hershey bar or Cracker Jack ("candy-coated popcorn, peanuts and a prize!" - how many of us bought it just to get that darn prize?!) and how many of us followed the "instuctions' on how to "eat an Oreo?" And what of those beer commercials - didn't they bring our families closer together ("here's to good friends, tonight is kinda special...")? And only in America does a Coca Cola commercial jingle become an anthem for world peace ("I'd like to Teach the World to perfect harmony.") This compilation is a textbook for anyone who has ever wanted to sell anything."
Fabulous! But...where's the beef?

"Listening those jingles maybe from late '40's to early '70's is a completely unique experience for people like me born after 1969. Often said that popular music is a three minutes artwork and I have no hesitation to call the jingles "one minute artworks." When I opened up the flyer inside to find the lyrics of the jingles, "WOW!" It really made me come alive. However it was the next moment made me feel like a nut. "Where's the linernotes?" Is it the Association singing for Oreo or is it Lou Rawls who is singing "Let it be Lowenbrau?" Who is the country singer singing for Armour Hot Dogs with the kids love to bite the sausages and did he finally made his own fame in the Music City? And where's the name like Barry Manilow or Melissa Manchester, who had been making their early days writing and performing jingles beneath the shadow of the Brill Building? I have a few other TV soundtrack CDs from the same company but they have linernotes well crafted and with a certain research.
Why didn't they do the same treatment for this? CDs like this is not only for nostalgia buffs, but also a very important reference for the studies of cultural history or sociology. That's why I don't rate this Five Stars and I entitled my review
from a famous hamburger commercial. @"
A Couch Potato's Walk Down Memory Lane

"Being a child from the 1970's, my memories of these jingles are at about 40 or 50%. However, as TV Land began airing some of these ads in the past 6 years, my familiarity got clearer. I certainly enjoyed remembering the Almond Joy/Mounds, Hershey Bar, It's The Real Thing Coke, Dr. Pepper, Hawaiian Punch, and Lowenbrau ads that I experienced as a child. I originally bought this as a tape, and I distictly remember enjoying the first side more than the second side. However, as I am more grown up now and enjoy beer ads and just clever jingles as a whole, this collection is superb. My only complaint is that other things weren't included. Then again, what is stopping me from making my own collection???"
