Product Description

Product Description

At first glance you probably think, oh yeah, he was that guy who did that really gutsy version of "Red River Valley" and not realise that he did in fact have a series of hits in the US, the UK and the continent. This double CD collection includes all the best recordings from Johnny with his very recognisable sax sound. He was probably the most successful sax artist outside the jazz world who had a string of hits in the late 50's and on into the 60's. What makes this package all the more interesting is that it includes an 80's gig in Dortmund, which his widow, Sonja Paris, assures me is the only live footage of Johnny available. As a DVD production it is not going to win any prizes, but it is unique and that makes it extremely saleable. Another major plus for this album is that it has been lovingly re-mastered which sets it apart from any other products on the market, most of which are illegal pirate copies. Ours is licensed directly from the estate who unquestionably own the original recordings and assure us that he never re-recorded his material

4.0 out of 5 stars The best compilation available 1 Sep 2011
By James B. Spink HALL OF FAME TOP 100 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This release from Dutch specialist label Smith & Co is probably as good a collection of Johnny and the Hurricanes as we are ever going to get now. There have been many compilations over the years - the previous best was the Definitive Collection from Charly Records back in the mid nineties which is now a collector's item. There are 60 tracks on each, and from what I remember of the earlier collection the tracks are broadly the same - very probably identical.

This new collection comes with a bonus DVD of a concert in Germany from 1986 which is interesting, if not essential. Johnny Paris died in 2006 of complications following an operation and his estate is now controlled by his widow, the author Sonja Paris. She has left Amazon a short review of this CD - I wish she had written more!

Paul Smith, of Smith & Co, says about his release on their website:
"What makes this package all the more interesting is that it includes an 80's gig in Dortmund, which his widow, Sonja Paris, assures me is the only live footage of Johnny available. As a DVD production it is not going to win any prizes, but it is unique and that makes it extremely saleable. Another major plus for this album is that it has been lovingly re-mastered which sets it apart from any other products on the market, most of which are illegal pirate copies. Ours is licensed directly from the estate who unquestionably own the original recordings and assure us that he never re-recorded his material."

The package contains a booklet with some information about the band and some photos from their heyday - a bit more of a discography would have been useful, but those details are available elsewhere. If you have any collection of Johnny and the Hurricanes - other than the Charly one - then you can safely buy this CD and know that it will be considerably better. If you don't yet have a collection then this is the one to buy - forget all the budget releases, these recordings are best available.

5.0 out of 5 stars Instrumental Rocker 10 Feb 2011
Format:Audio CD
Big fan of Johnny and The Hurricanes, once saw them in Newcastle and they blew the audience away,raucous saxaphone, this was just like going back to the 60s, fantastic memories. Nice to have a DVD included, although the music was good I felt the Johnny Paris lacked in personality. If you are fan don't let that put you off there are some great tracks.

5.0 out of 5 stars After all those years 15 Mar 2011
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
Every other year a Johnny & the Hurricanes comp comes out but they always miss out something or other.So here in the first year of the 2110s comes a double CD plus a DVD of the 80s edition when Johnny Paris was the only original member.
In fact Johnny & the Hurricanes by 1963 were a different group with only Paris a constant all the time.The group were more of a franchise at one time containing more British members they picked up in Germany.
But always managing to retain the same sound.
Never featuring vocals until Saga of the Beatles and the German album there ARE quite a few on the DVD of Golden Oldies like Blue Suede Shoes
Everything is included-the 2 LPs and the singles up to 1963.Only the Beatles tribute and live German album are missing.

So this is the one to go for
