5.0 out of 5 stars The first 2 albums 27 Dec 2010
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
With the same number of tracks as the ABCKO CDissued 2 years ago only the obvious hits are repeated.Many of these songs have never been heard before as Dee dee Sharp's original albums were never available in the U K.
The oddly titles Be My Girl is not the same song as any others of this name and is in fact based on Gene Chandler's Duke Of Earl.
Her version of 100 lbs of Clay seems to be rather flogging the idea of the Twist-here she thanks the Almighty for creating Chubby Checker! Even Splish Splash has the Twist man's name dropped
Remember you're mine is the same song as Pat Boone charted with and a reminder that its actually a Cameo Parkway copyright originally cut by Ray Vernon brother of Link Wray.However its practically turned into a new song as the Love Letters arangement is used to great effect.
Which reminds me-how long before the Complete Ketty Lester Era recordings are to be made available?

5.0 out of 5 stars I love DEE DEE SHARP 31 Aug 2012
By Rosalind Ross - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Doing the Mashed Potato was the first dance I learned, the Bird was next, at the age of 64 today, I can still do both dances.

Some people live their entire lives not remembering the fun they had learning to dance. This CD helped me go back way back and I thank who ever put this CD together for the fond memories.

In my opinion It's Mashed Potato Time/ Do the Bird and DEE DEE SHARP, should be considered legend, she sang her way into the hearts of teenagers of the time.

It's Mashed Potato Time/ Do The Bird is rich with musical history, it is with love that this collection should be enjoyed. This CD want let you down,I welcomed it with open arms and I'am still danceing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Dee Dee Sharp 30 Dec 2010
By Roger H. - Published on
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I have two vinyl lp's by dee dee sharp of "Its Mashed Potato Time" I will let these two records rest. The cd of this lp and "Do The Bird"
have a super sound.If you want cds to sound even better buy yourself a floor model stereo from the 1970's or 1980's remove the back cover unplug the RCA jacks from the phonograph and plug in your 5 disc cd player you will be amazed at the sound quality! I remember Mashed Potato by Dee Dee Sharp in 1962. I was 15 at the time now I am 63 years old and listen to my music i grew up with. They had good music in the 1960's imagine 48 years ago and the cd sounds just as fresh as the day it was released. Hey I can still do the Limbo Rock but that's another story. Abkco did a super job on all the releases of chubby checker,bobby rydell, the orlons, Dee Dee Sharp etc. I hope ABKCO releases more of these artists also "Down To Earth" with Chubby Checker and Dee Dee Sharp this is truely a master piece.I purchased my cd's on amazon because they have a big assortment and always high quality cd's so for all you fans of Dee Dee Sharp and the rest of ABKCO cd's you can purchase them with confidence.
5.0 out of 5 stars A must for Dee Dee Sharp fans!!! 6 Jun 2012
