For a start this 3 CD collection is from Music For Pleasure/EMI so you get the quality and the original recordings as you would expect, but this is not just any normal love songs collection. To begin this set includes tracks that are not truly "love songs" but more of the rocking side of things for example: Eddie's Cochran's Weekend, Somethin' Else & Jeannie, Jeannie, Jeannie. Also we get a offering of lesser known & cover tracks from The Marcels, Bobby Vee, Johnny Kidd, Ricky Nelson, Little Anthony And The Imperials, The Crickets, Frankie Lymon And The Teenagers, Buddy Knox & Fats Domino. Those tracks that don't often appear on other compilations are: Everlovin', Please Say You Want Me, Teardrops Fall Like Rain, The ABC's of Love, Creation of Love, I'll Be Forever Loving You, I'm Taking a Vacation From Love, Your Cheatin' Heart, Don't Try To Change Me, The Heart of A Teenager (a.k.a. Teenage Girl), Broken Doll, Yes My Darling, Two People in The World, If You Were The Only Girl in The World, To Be With You (Very rare!) & Heartaches.
Also a few other points are we get a track which is C&W not R&R that being In The Middle of A Heartache by Wanda Jackson and if you don't notice it the 1st time round on the 3rd disc you get one song that appears twice but fron 2 different artists. That is Little Bitty Pretty One by Frankie Lymon (who's version is currently being used in an advert for Chanel) and Thurston Harris, a little bit unusual for 2 versions of a track to appear twice from 2 different artists on the same disc. This set is quite rare now but it makes a change due to the more obscure tracks that have been compiled along with the well known and the ones that appear 10 to the dozen times. So therefore to me it makes it a interesting set hence the 5 star rating.
