5.0 out of 5 stars "Leader Of The Pack"~definitive collection sparkles! 11 Aug 2011
By Bradly Briggs - Published on Amazon.com
Composing legends Jerry Leiber (1933-2011) & Mike Stoller ("Hound Dog", "Kansas City", "Jailhouse Rock" to name a few through and beyond Peggy Lee's classic Grammy Award winning "Is That All There Is?") brilliant sixties label comes to life in this exciting "The Red Bird Story", filled with wondrous classic hits like "Remember (Walkin' In The Sand), "Chapel Of Love", "The Boy From New York City", "Take Me For A Little While", "New York's A Lonely Town", "I Wanna Love Him So Bad", "Leader Of The Pack" & others, all great songs remastered and sounding more crystal clear than ever making this definitive collection the one to have for those who love mesmerizing gems from the Golden Era of music! Not only are these highly entertaining hits better to hear the second time around in this stellar collection, real surprise turns out to be discovering sleeper "should have been hits" and wondrous gems filling out the rest of this stunning collection containing zero filler. Dedicated to the memory of legendary songwriter Ellie Greenwich (1940-2009) who penned plus sung numerous great songs in this two-disc collection, Ellie would be proud of this sumptuous collection and her engrossing 45rpm releases, varied & unique gems sounding like hits holding up beautifully in quality to other amazing artists in this incredible roster that equal pure talent...then husband & co-writing partner Jeff Barry shines in original demo "We've Gotta Get Out Of This Place", sounding terrific and easily stand-out version could have been a huge hit as this legendary genius not only writes classic songs, but like the rest in this incredible collection, he can really sing! "Unsung" has become a popular title for sadly overlooked extraordinary talent due to a disfunctional music industry, incapable of giving support and praise to those deserving in favor of flavor of the day, this tremendous collection is filled with those amazing "Unsung" musical giants...standing tall among these is the incredibly talented Evie Sands, should have been a huge singer/songwriter Superstar but bad breaks kept this from happening and the price of this collection is worth it alone for her two classic tracks! "Take Me For A Little While" is a soulful anthem that becomes an addiction after a few plays and "I Can't Let Go" is a wildly infectious cooker that should have been the hit version. Evie Sands went on to great singer/songwriter releases in the seventies, featuring terrific originals recorded by the likes of Barbra Streisand and Dusty Springfield, but with each and every great original, Evie Sands versions are definitive...this collection shows her brilliant beginnings finally with a sound mix these classics deserve to be heard in. R&B soulful singers abound & stand-out brilliantly like the brooding funky classic "Something You Got" by Alvin Robinson, soul-deep Dee Dee Warwick performance smolders in Van McCoy composed "Don't Think My Baby's Coming Back", searing Linda Jones tour-de-force "Fugitive From Love", original Dixie Cups "Iko Iko" cooks and numerous others will delight, amaze & satisfy soul music loving fans. Tiny Tim mind whirling "Little Girl" should have put him on the charts a few years before "Tiptoe Through The Tulips" made him a household name, but small label had promotion issues which are obvious when listening to all these incredible lost but now thankfully found musical gems from the great musical sixties! Tremendous highly entertaining collection ultimately is an engrossing musical treasure, closing Shangri-Las haunting "Past, Present And Future" is a mesmerizing classic remixed to amazing clarity, showing what a stunning beautifully performed and arranged classic it and this entire keeper of a collection are...musical treasure chest essential collection is an Import gem which are usually limited in volume, so get it while available or weep if you miss out on this once in a lifetime musical extravaganza. Listening to all this amazing talent over and over will make any serious music lover wonder whatever happened to the music industry, to be so lacking today in that basic ingredient "talent" that was so richly abundent, yet sadly was taken for granted...enjoy!
