Tokens All Time Greatest Hits a Winner 5 Jan. 2000
By Timothy P. Brown - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Everyone knows the Tokens for The Lion Sleeps Tonight. However, there were other songs they recorded that I could not find unitl NOW. This CD was released in 1998 and included I Hear Trumpets Blow (which I could not find since its release in 1966 - my thanks to BMG and Taragon for finally putting this song out on CD!). It also includes a Beach Boys collaboration of Don't Worry Baby and She Lets Her Hair Down recorded by other artists and used on commericials. The quality of this CD is EXCELLENT. The engineering and production on this CD is one of the best I have heard out of hundreds of CD's -no tape hiss or other distortions.

Stereo Note 27 Nov. 1999
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
The only thing I will add to the other comments is a stereo note. Most tracks are in true stereo, only track 1 and 9 are in mono. A stereo note on the back of the CD jewel box states the following:
"Tracks 1 & 9 are mono from full track master tapes, tracks 10, 13-14 from 2 track stereo sources, tracks 2-8 are stereo from 3 track session master tapes; tracks 11-12 are stereo from 8 track session master tapes."
The CD is produced by Taragon. They have established a well deserved reputation for obtaining the highest level master tapes in existence. This CD is no exception. However, "Tonight I Fell In Love" was recorded and released in true stereo and has been available in stereo in the past. So I'm not sure why it's mono here.

The Lion Is King 26 Dec. 2001
By Zub - Published on
Format: Audio CD
Though often incorrectly relegated to one-hit wonder status for their reworking of a Zulu chant that became the number one hit "The Lion Sleeps Tonight", the Tokens put nearly a dozen songs into the top-100 over a decade. The Tokens' unique harmonies punctuated by Jay Siegel's falsetto carried the self-penned, bouncy tunes "Tonight I Fell In Love" and "I Hear Trumpets Blow", as well as the plaintive Goffin-King composition "He's In Town", a bigger hit in the U.K. as by the Rockin' Berries, into the top 40.

Beyond their own recordings, the Tokens had their own production company, Bright Tunes that had major success with other artists' recordings such as the Chiffons' "He's So Fine". They also had their own label, B.T. Puppy, that had significant chart exposure with the Happenings' string of hits starting with the reworked "See You In September".

The multi-faceted skills of this group are evident in this collection that includes all of their charted singles plus a few non-charting ones garnered from the several labels for which they recorded. The small independent Taragon label has produced this superb compilation using original full-, 2-,3- and 8-track session masters. All tracks are in stereo except one and nine. An eight-page liner notes booklet provides a detailed history of the group along with detailed track information.

While the number of tracks is slightly on the meager side, this is the best, bar none, collection of recordings from this vastly underrecognized group of performers. For more Tokens, BMG offers an excellent compilation, but while delving deeper into those RCA recordings, it is limited to the work done there. While it does make a good complement to this collection, this Taragon piece heads the list for Tokens' collections CD's.

outstanding collection from the various labels 26 Dec. 1998
By David E. Levine - Published on
Format: Audio CD
For years, I have tried to find a recording of the Tokens top hits from the various labels they recorded on. Previously, at a Tokens concert, I had purchased a tape of re-recordings Finally, this CD was recently released with all original recordings of their top hits . Songs I haven't heard in over 30 years are represented such as "Hear the Bells." Importantly, their greatest hits, including, "Tonight I Fell in Love, The Lion Sleeps Tonight," and "Portrait of my Love" are all included in one great collection.

The Quintessential Collection for Fans of The Tokens! 6 Oct. 1998
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This recording on Taragon Records (a division of BMG Records) is a compilation of all the greatest original hit recordings of The Tokens. From their early recordings of Tonight I Fell In Love and The Lion Sleeps Tonight (Wimoweh), to later hits such as I Hear Trumpets Blow, Portrait of My Love, and It's a Happening World, this CD will delight true Tokens fans as well as anyone who appreciates 60's harmony groups. If you have been waiting for a CD with all the greatest hits of The Tokens, don't miss this one!
