Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Dreamcoats and Petticoats are back again with the next release. After D&P 1,2,3 and the Cast recordings compilation for the musical it would be easy to dismiss this release as yet more "cashing in". However once again this is a welcome compilation. Creating a theme for a compilation like this "Summer" programme of classic pop hits is a great idea. Also this does differ from most Summer compilations becuase ALL of the SONGS date from pre 1974. The latest original recordings being from 1973. (There is also the two extra bonus tracks recorded in 2009 to compliment this programme which are only there as a sort of tribute to the era of the orginal tracks) Universal have created an interesting compilation which kicks off with Cliff Richard and the Shadows and and the predictable inclusion of Summer Holiday. (Well it had to really, didn't it?) And they appear again on disc two with ON THE BEACH. There are also other predictable inclusions such as the Jerry Keller original number one hit HERE COMES SUMMER. The Beach Boys are there also with surfin usa.
There are other tracks of interest such as The Chantays and their number 16 hit from 1963 "pipeline", Leslie Gore and the track Sunshine Lollipops and Rainbows which was not a hit in the UK, The Number 6 hit from 1958 Lollipop from the Chordettes, The Crickets and They call her La Bamba, The Tymes and So much in love, and I love you baby from Paul Anka are all tracks that rarely appear on compilations or any CD for that matter.
There is also the Jimmie Rodgers hit ENGLISH COUNTRY GARDEN on this compilation. This is more than welcome. An unusual pop hit really. Jimmie Rodgers was a Country Music Singer from the U.S. He took a completely out of character turn here by recording this Traditional English Folk song with a definite non country music feel to it. This was a track that is certainly an echo of summers long ago, as is the whole album.
I greatly recommend this piece of nostalgia.

This double cd of summertime classics really does invoke the feeling of summers past, as you listen, close your eyes and get transported back to a time of innocent fun without the pain of old age. Remember when there was hardly any traffic on the roads, of trips to the coast, walking on the beach with your arm around the waiste of the love of your life. Then wonder whatever happened to her/him. Oh happier times, without the worries and the cares, and SUMMER.

Those who, like the reviewer, were young in the late 50s and early 60s, will know and love most of the tracks in this collection. Younger listeners may wonder what the fuss was about. As the poet wrote 'bliss was it in that dawn to be alive, and to be young was very heaven!' Dreamboats and Petticoats captures this feeling perfectly.

Another very good one in this series of a golden era,
maybe not the best one but some great favourites on here
and worth having in the collection.

Just a few of my personal favourites, Bobby Darin - Beyond The Sea (a very under-rated genuine superstar imo); Chubby Checker - Lets Twist Again (one of the first records I ever bought, fantastic); The Springfields - Island Of Dreams (always loved Dusty Springfield)....

Apart from about a dozen favourites, basically a nice mix, incl. Harry Belafonte, Jimmie Rogers, Shangri-Las, Brian Hyland, Del Shannon, Tommy Steele, Percy Faith & his Orchestra.....and basically I just love this music from the late 50's and 60's.

Love these, We all know the songs and can't help singing along to them, (in my case make sure nobody is in ear shot) all the oldies seem to have such great intro's, Every time I listen to these I think why don't I play them more often.
