4.0 out of 5 stars Happy sounds of the Seventies 10 Oct 2003
By Pieter Uys HALL OF FAME TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This collection contains all of Dawn's hits, like Knock Three Times (the very first seven single I ever bought), Tie A Yellow Ribbon Round The Old Oak Tree, Candida, What Are You Doing Sunday?, Who's In The Strawberry Patch ... and Say, Has Anybody Seen My Sweet Gypsy Rose?, plus their covers of other hits of the era, like Vaya Con Dios, Rainy Day Man, the Goffin/King classic Up On The Roof and James Taylor's Carolina In My Mind. Dawn were the masters of melodic vocal pop and they really shine on those hits, especially the aforementioned Knock Three Times which is a brilliant piece of power pop. Some of the covers are so-so, but overall this album takes one back to a happier, more innocent era that evokes pleasant memories. Dawn were Tony Orlando and two gorgeous female vocalists, and they certainly made their mark with their particular brand of seventies singalong sounds. If you like pop with personality, you'll love this album.

5.0 out of 5 stars Much more than Tie a yellow ribbon 7 Oct 2003
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
This trio sang easy listening pop songs, scoring hits in Britain, America and elsewhere with some great songs. Tony had some success in the early sixties, when he had an American hit with Halfway to Paradise (a British hit for Billy Fury) and a British top five hit with Bless you. Neither of those songs is included in this compilation, which focuses exclusively on the trio's music from 1970 to 1974. The trio was made up of Joyce Vincent and Thelma Hopkins, both of whom had previous experience as backup singers with Motown.
Tie a yellow ribbon has become a classic. It was adopted as an anthem for Vietnam veterans and the use of yellow ribbons to symbolize homecomings has become something of a tradition around the world. The practice did not exist before this song was written, so it shows how music influences life in all sorts of ways.
Their other great hits, all featured here, were Knock three times, Candida, What are you doing Sunday, Say has anybody seen my sweet Gypsy Rose and Who's in the strawberry patch with Sally.
The remainder of this collection includes a number of covers, including Up on the roof (Drifters), You're a lady (Peter Skellern), It's all in the game (Tommy Edwards) and a couple of James Taylor songs (Rainy day woman, Carolina in my mind).
Different compilations have been released in different countries. This British compilation is as good as any you're likely to find. If you like easy listening pop of the early seventies by groups like the New Seekers, you should enjoy this.

5.0 out of 5 stars a big part of my life 1 Nov 2007
By Bj Lucas VINE VOICE
Format:Audio CD
This is pur nostalgia for me, but, more than that, good pop music. 'Knock three times' is the first song I ever remember hearing from Dawn and the lovely Tony Orlando, 'tie a yellow Ribbon' tells the rather sad story of a guy coming out of prison, and wanting to know whether his love is still interested. 'Carolina in my mind' 'who's in the strwberry patch with sally' sweet Gypsy Rose' candida are perfect exampoles too of what Dawn/Tony Orlando do best. These songs are more than just memories, thry're part of pop culture.

Format:Audio CD
I was buying goldfish food in my local pet shop, Pets Pantry Rotherham (quick free name check there), during my always hectic lunch break. The radio was on in the shop, some bland seventies song serving as background fodder. As I was handing my fiver over to the Pet Shop Guy, the opening bars of 'Knock Three Times' by Tony Orlando & Dawn came gliding over the airwaves. For a few seconds, both me and Mr Pet Shop Guy were transfixed. We exchanged a knowing smile, silently considered a dance around the shop floor and then completed our transaction. I floated out of the shop and back to my place of work.

When I arrived home evening I knew just what I had to do.
As someone who is more at home with Rage Against The Machine and The Ramones than seventies schmaltz, I drew the curtains and then smugly purhased The Very Best Of Tony Orlando and Dawn. The next day I questioned what I had done, but as the product was inexpensive I shrugged it off as heat of the moment nonsense and vowed not to do it again.

Said purchase arrived and I now Knock Three Times with alarming regularity #in adddion to Tying Yellow Ribbons and singing along to other forgotten gems#. What a smashing guilty pleasure and fab slice of nostalgia , go on, click 'Purchase This Product' you know you want to !

3.0 out of 5 stars Memories of my mother 16 May 2008
By SMc
Format:Audio CD
I bought this for my (late) mother and these pop tunes will forever be in my brain as songs that she loved. "Candida", "Tie A Yellow Ribbon", "Knock Three Times" et al may be a bit twee, but nevertheless are really good pop tunes.

Will always get your parents and grandparents dancing at family do's.
