Origional artists but NOT the origional recordings.
Avoid this whole "GOLD" series as the recordings are
of poor quality. Shameful, as these are great songs.
Good songs poor recordings

"I would have rated this CD higher, if it were a higher quality of CD. the recordings apear to be very poor. some of the songs obviously had the speed incorrect, and some of the songs were not the least bit acurate on the speed. some very serious production problems, aparently in the duplicating process. I almost returned the CD as a reject. this is unfortunate, as some of these songs were very good songs. Please wake up compose and dominion records. this problem was in both your products."
Pretty Good CD - but the tracklist is not correct

"This CD is a great value, especially considering the price. I found 15 decent songs out of 29 on this CD. The sound quality is fairly good - none are outstanding however. Most tracks are in stereo and clean - they just don't have that full-bodied sound. Maybe they weren't taken from the original studio tapes or it's simply because these songs are from the '50s and early '60s. Still I think the sound quality is quite acceptable.
The main disappointment for me was that I bought this CD for the song, "Yes, I'm Ready" by Barbara Mason. It was very annoying to find that this song was NOT on the actual CD. Instead there was this lame song by Bobby Sherman, "Easy Come, Easy Go".
Anyway, there are a lot of good tracks here, more than I usually find on CDs of this type."
Good for $$, I have the SAME track listing as it says

"A lot of songs for the money, granted some aren't the greatest, but overall pretty good for a compilation. I have the same tracks Amazon has listed, the catalog number on my disc is 9073-2"
Not entirely accurate

I did notice that the cataloge number for the advertised disc is 9073 while mine is 9073-2. Could they have changed it and not updated the Amazon offering to match?"
