4.0 out of 5 stars Tab Hunter - 'Young Love' 28 Jan 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This CD uncovers all the 'old chestnuts' that we expect from Tab. Slightly disappointed with the 'digital input' - not upto the vinyl versions at times. However, that apart you get what you expect from Tab and that, in any circumstances' can't be bad. Worth adding to your collection!

5.0 out of 5 stars Simply a classic singer 15 Mar 2011
By Richard
Format:Audio CD
There's an even better one out now than this-its a 35 tracker from either Canada or Australia and has TWO versions of Red Sails in the Sunset.
Probably all he made as he was really a movie star.
His first hit was a cover of a Sonny James hit-HE covered the obscure original by Ric Cartey.Next he covered Charlie Gracie's B side to Butterfly-which was 99 ways.
Mainly Tab Hunter kept to the great American Songbook even after he'd moved to Warner Brothers.Never a rock'n'roll singer more a crooner on the edge of high school pop

5.0 out of 5 stars I can now retire my well played 45s! 24 Nov 2005
By Kimberly A. Messmer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Finally...a great Tab Hunter compilation! I can't say enough about this CD but I'll try! All of the hits are here and the label claim of great mastering from original source tapes is completely accurate - the sound quality is stunning. The packaging is first class with a beautiful 20-page full-color booklet crammed full of rare photos and very detailed liner notes. Way to go Eric Records...you've made one Tab Hunter fan very happy! I can now retire my well played 45s!

5.0 out of 5 stars A good collection of Tab's greatest! 23 Oct 2005
By PATRICK J.POWERS - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Tab Hunter was not only a big star in the 50's and 60's in the movies but also a good singer! My personal favorite..Ninety Nine Ways! This is a piece that is not on any other Tab Hunter C.D. collection. I know this is a collection you will enjoy if you liked the musical aspects of Tab!

5.0 out of 5 stars A REAL CROONER!! 4 Mar 2006
By a viewer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I was pleasantly surprised with this CD! Since Tab Hunter's autobiography came out it seems the powers that be are striking while the iron is hot. I didn't even know Tab Hunter was a singer who made "Young Love" number one for 6 weeks on the pop hit parade. This CD is full of great tunes like "Red Sails in the Sunset", "Ninety Nine Ways", "When I Fall in Love" and my personal favorite "Candy". Its interesting to hear Tab gain confidence with each cut and see his voice developing so that by the middle of the CD.....he's in full command of his vocal powers and doesn't seem as tense as he seems to sound in the beginning. This CD is great!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Eric Records Does It Again! 7 Aug 2006
By Fred Bronson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
When I was a teenager working in a record store, one of my jobs was to keep the "oldies" section of singles stocked (yes, they were 45rpm singles, and it was THAT long ago!). That's when I discovered Eric Records, a label that specialized in issuing back-to-back hits. Unlike other labels, the sound quality on Eric's releases was always top notch, and that has continued into the CD era. It was obvious to me that the people who ran this label really cared about the music. That's why I was so happy to learn the label was issuing a greatest hits collection by an artist who was under-represented on CD. Finally, we have a Tab Hunter greatest hits CD, and it is worthy. There are 17 tracks, most in stereo, and all the original recordings. If only every label took as much care as Eric. Great artwork and liner notes, too. A class A+ job all the way around.

4.0 out of 5 stars Two B-Sides Short Of A 5-Star Definitive Tab Hunter Volume 1 Sep 2013
By AvidOldiesCollector - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Born Arthur Andrew Kelm on July 11, 1931, but taking his mother's maiden name Gelien after his parent's divorce, he was given the stage name Tab Hunter by his first agent when he began making the first of his 40 films. Like fellow-actor contemporaries Sal Mineo and Anthony (Tony) Perkins, he was pressed into the music business by studio bosses anxious to cash in on the "heart-throb" craze sweeping the nation in the late 1950s, and from early 1957 to 1959 he chalked up 7 nationally-charting singles for Dot Records and Warner Brothers.

His first was his best, the January-March # 1 Billboard Pop Top 100 Young Love, edging out the Sonny James version (which also hit # 1) by remaining at that position for six weeks, as opposed to one week for James. Te Hunter version also scored at # 8 R&B while Sonny saw his go to # 1 Country (where it stayed for 9 weeks) AND # 3 R&B. The Hunter flipside of Dot 15533, Red Sails In The Sunset, also charted at # 57 Top 100. The follow-up Ninety-Nine Ways peaked at # 11 Top 100 in April-May 1957 b/w a cover of Duke Ellington's Don't Get Around Much Anymore, which finished at # 74 on Dot 15548. All four sides were backed by the Billy Vaughn orchestra and are in this volume.

What this does not include are his next two releases at Dot in 1957/58 before moving over to Warner Brothers: Don't Let It Get Around/I'm Alone Because I Love You (Dot 15657 in 1957) and It's All Over Town/I'm A Runaway (Dot 15767 in 1958). Instead, it picks up his recording career with his first release at Warner, Jealous Heart which, with the backing of the Marty Wilson orchestra, stalled at # 62 Top 100 in November 1958 on Warner 5008 (the flipside, Lonesome Road, is omitted).

After a total flop (My Baby Just Cares For Me/Candy - both sides included) on Warner 5021, he returned to the Top 40 with his rendition of the old standard I'll Be With You In Apple Blossom Time which topped out at # 31 Hot 100 in February-March 1959 on Warner 5032 b/w (What Can I Give) My Only Love? - also omitted here. Those were backed by the Don Ralke orchestra, as were both sides of his final hit, the May 1959 # 68 Hot 100 There's No Fool Like A Young Fool b/w I'll Never Smile Again (which is included) on Warner 5051.

Moonlight Bay (track 8) was one side of the failed single Warner 5123 in 1959 (the flip, You're Gonna Change (Or I'm Gonna Leave) is omitted), while Again (track 12) was one side of the failed single Warner 5160 in 1960 (the B-side, Love Is Just Around The Corner, is omitted). Tracks 9 and 10 are from the 1958 Warner Bros LP W-1221 "Tab Hunter," track 15 from the 1959 Warner Bros LP W/WS-1292 "When I Fall In Love," and tracks 16 and 17 from the 1960 Warner Bros LP W/WS-1367 "R.F.D. Tab Hunter."

The sound reproduction quality is excellent and it comes with informative liner notes written by Greg Adams. Unfortunately, it frustrates completist hits collectors by leaving out those two B-sides of nationally-charting singles in favour of failed singles and album cuts. Since the last 10 tracks were "chosen by his fans in a poll" how hard would it have been for Eric to extend the volume to 20 tracks?

If you're interested, his other singles are listed in the Comments below.
