HASH(0xa4308eac) out of 5 stars "Simple, Soft, Sweet Guitars for Happy hours" 25 Nov. 2008
By D'ASTE FRANCO - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This exclusive sound of the 60's is still wonderful today.
Four unique Guitars accompanied by soft-brush background drums in a magic joyful combination.
This is by far the best S-A-Ls CD I know on the market, it's produced by ACE UK, the ACEs in remastering! Must say also that the only other S-A-Ls fully instrumental CD I know: "The very Best of the S-A-Ls" made by Collectables has a very good sound Quality but contains only 12 songs, just over 25'.
This is the only CD that should be called "The Best of the S-A-Ls" as it delivers practically all their biggest hits; 28 nice songs, over 1hr of very enjoyable music .
I told you about ACE UK ,I will tell you the songs, as also these are not shown:

1.WHEELS 2.BRASS BUTTONS 3.SHOULD I 4.SCOTTIE 5.NEARLY SUNRISE 6.SUNDAY 7.MY BLUE HEAVEN 8.MATILDA 9.SKIPPIN' 1O.MINA BIRD 11.HAPPY MELODY 12.PANIC BUTTON 13.WALK DON'T RUN 14.SUMMERTIME 15.PERFIDIA 16.BULLDOG 17.SPINNIN' MY WHEELS 18.RED RIVER TWIST 19.TAKE A MINUTE 20.YOU DON'T HAVE TO GO. 21.TORQUAY 22. TWIST WATCH 23.HARBOUR LIGHTS 24 TELL THE WORLD 25.ARE YOU LONESOME TONIGHT 26.MY BABE 27.HEARTACHES 28.REPLICA.

Very good music and sound quality with 20/28 songs in STEREO and the other 8 in clean clear mono. Unfortunately two of my favorites (SUNDAY and TWIST WATCH) are in mono but I'm sure ACE had no stereo tapes avaiable.
I wonder why this jewel is so difficult to find, did ACE stop the production? I had to buy mine used and must say I'm very happy...If you like these guys and find one...don't let it go.
Front or background this music finds here space anytime.
Ciao,
Franco

HASH(0xa436490c) out of 5 stars always wanted it 30 May 2008
By Diane Pangburn - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I always loved the song wheels and always wished there was more instramental music by the string-a-longs. I suppose there were albums out there, but I was never sure they would be all instramental. I just love this one. It is so much fun to listen to, and many of my friends like it as much as I do. I bought the tex mex teen magic of the string-a-longs and was extremely dissapointed in it because of the awful vocal tracks on it, and the relatively few wheels-like numbers. But, this one is just exactly what I wanted. Anyone who loves the song wheels will like it.

HASH(0xa436e630) out of 5 stars Ace Provides All The Key Warwick & Dot Cuts 22 Mar. 2013
By George O'Leary - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
If you searched for The String-A-Longs you've come to this page showing that there are two CD compilations covering the music of the largely instrumental band from Plainview, Texas - lead guitarist Richard Stephens, rhythm guitarists Keith McCormack and Jimmy Torres, bass guitarist Aubrey de Cordova and drummer Don Allen - whose efforts were produced mostly for Warwick Records by Norman Petty. One is a 2000 12-track compilation from Collectables titled The Very Best Of The String-A-Longs Featuring Wheels, while the one covered here, from Ace Records of the U.K., is a 1993 volume with the 28 tracks shown.

For the difference in price, any collector is better served by the Ace offering. Not only do they provide all 6 sides of their three nationally-charted singles, but they do so with their usual impeccable sound reproduction and copious liner notes (sprinkled with vintage photographs), including a label discography on the reverse. Collectables, on the other hand, in re-producing their only Warwick vinyl album, 1961's "Pick A Hit" (Warwick W2036ST), does not include two of their hits and has just the one B-side. It does have quite decent sound as well and liner notes written by Mark Marymont, but these are nowhere near as detailed as those in the Ace release. If what you want is a CD version of that lone LP, then it's a 4-star effort.

Their big hit, of course, was Wheels. And, unlike most R&R instrumental bands of that era, they not only brought that to the Billboard Pop Hot 100 Top 10 but it also struck a chord with the R&B market. In January/February 1961 it peaked at # 3 Hot 100/# 19 R&B on Warwick 603 b/w Tell The World (some pressings also had Am I Asking Too Much as the flip - it's not part of either CD). Collectables also omits Tell The World.

In April, Brass Buttons made it to # 35 Hot 100 b/w Panic Button on Warwick 625 (Collectables has the B-side but not the hit), and in July they scored their final such entry when their cover of the old 1940 Arden-Ohman Orchestra hit, Should I, topped out at # 10 Adult Contemporary and just missed the Hot 100 Top 40 at # 42 on Warwick 654 b/w Take A Minutes (neither side is part of the Collectables volume).

Of their failed singles, a re-release of Tell The World on Warwick 606 had For An Angel as the flip, but that is not in either CD. However, Ace does provide: Myna Bird/Scottie (Warwick 668 in 1961); Nearly Sunrise (Warwick 675 in 1962) but not the B-side, Theme For Twisters; Twist Watch (Dot 16331 in 1962) but not the flip, Sunday; Spinnin' My Wheels/My Blue Heaven (Dot 16379 in 1962); Mathilda/Replica (Dot 16393 in 1962); Heartaches/Happy Melody ( Dot 16448 in 1963); My Babe (Dot 16575 in 1964) but not the Dot version of Scottie; and omits Caravan (Dot 16708 in 1965) which had a re-release of Mathilda as the flip.

HASH(0xa436e330) out of 5 stars Wish there were more! 5 Dec. 2010
By Augustine Jerome - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
I heard of them more than 30 years ago on a LP. They bring memories and tell me how a guitar should be played in a small group. I am not a music critic, no not much about music, but the playing is smooth and uptempo. Play this to any teenager and they would think it a new and upcomming group with new songs!

Only wish they had more.

Thankyou Richard Stephens, Keith McCormack, Jimmy Torres, Aubrey de Cordova and Don Allen.

I bought it because they played the song 'Wheels'. The other songs are pretty good also. Maybe a little heavy on the bass part, but pretty good.
