I have just received this cd and it is playing whilst I am composing this review, and on listening to this cd what I am sure of is that these are most definately not original recordings. It states on the cover that these are by the original artists, which means when it comes to single performers, you get the original artist, but not the original recording. When it comes to a group, you get a recording by some of the original group, but a later recording, and not the original group. If the group is the original lineup, you get a re-recording at a later time. Some of the tracks are ok, "Needles & Pins" by the Searchers is different from the original, but still enjoyable. There are some great songs here, and what you will appreciate from listening to this cd is that in their original release form, these tracks are what made the sixties so memorable. I bought this cd for pennies, and whilst most of the tracks here are inferior to the originals, you do get the odd surprise, such as a four minute plus version of "Tobacco Road" by an energetic Nashville Teens, including feedback. None of these tracks are a patch on the original recordings, and this cd is definately not a must have item. I can live with this cd, but could not in all honestly recommend it. File this cd in the "Oddity" bin. Mrs. M Walsh.
