Favorite Fifty 2
Favorite Fifty 2
Price: £9.77

5.0 out of 5 stars Ambitious series, 9 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Favorite Fifty 2 (Audio CD)
These 2 volumes of what are songs about the Beatles are on CD BABY and altogether there are 100 songs.Its definitely a cheaper way of buying them than the 20 0dd individual ones
Rather like the Liverpool Songs which have combined most of them onto a3 CD set called The Scouse Anthology

5.0 out of 5 stars Once there was a way, 9 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Gonna Bop 'til I Drop (Audio CD)
In the 70s a ridiculous LP was issued by the budget label SAGA.It was called Ray Dorset's Greatest Hits and contained nothing that had even been issued.One of the tracks was the demo of In The Summertime but wherever that went its not on this collection of pre Mungo hits themselves only demos.In fact its not on the Saga CD called Swinging London
So this is an important release as its all the great man's early bands together with various Mungo Jerry B sides and demos

3.0 out of 5 stars Not good, 7 Oct. 2013
Its screwed up all the way when the original go hand in hand with the answers-this was first tried on the Skeeter Davis album Here's The Answer.
There's plenty of answer CDs out there which don't remind you of the song being answered

5.0 out of 5 stars Always worthwhile, 7 Oct. 2013
The Readers Digest box sets are not only cheap but can be found in charity shops for a quid.
when it comes to Andrew Lloyd Weber its all about cover versions-the original artists would be found on the Soundtrack or Original Cast albums

5.0 out of 5 stars Off and running, 6 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Hazy Daze (Audio CD)
I saw Equation at Morecambe Platform when they were support to Martin Stephenson.This was the CD they were selling and when I asked Kathryn Roberts about the one called Return To Me she told me the company had scrapped it.Eventually it came out on the Rough Trade label after its previous member Cara Dillon had become a big name in the folk world

5.0 out of 5 stars Giants of Jazz, 6 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Homage to New Orleans (Audio CD)
What's here are some of the earliest jazzmen but not with the original music-this is the New Orleans or Dixieland revival of the 40s/50s and which led direct to the British Trad revival

3.0 out of 5 stars When liking doesn't turn to loving, 6 Oct. 2013
Loses 2 stars not for its musical content but for the absurd title.I counted just TWO I'd never heard of and when you consider how well anthologised the rest is its hardly forgotten.
A few that are would be Russ Miller's I Sit In My Window,Kelly Sims' Bewitched By Love and Tony Gunner's Lonesome Road-there's plenty yet not on CD


Allan Sisters Meet Mary Saxt
Allan Sisters Meet Mary Saxt
Offered by EliteDigital UK
Price: £29.95

5.0 out of 5 stars Meeting of like minds, 6 Oct. 2013
How many copies of this CD sold?
The wonderfully named Mary Saxton made around 3 singles which come under Northern Soul and as such this CD was issued in the U K on Ace's Kent label


Girl Group Sound 3
Girl Group Sound 3
Price: £21.16

5.0 out of 5 stars Crystal Belles, 6 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Girl Group Sound 3 (Audio CD)
There are 8 volumes in this series all with the same picture on the sleeve.
If amazon ever sell any of them it will be a miracle as no track details appear.
If you want to know details the go onto the Crystal Bell website and click the relevant section which lists over 300 on 11 30 pagers of girl groups and solos


Soul Boppin Ladies
Soul Boppin Ladies
Price: £22.21

5.0 out of 5 stars The strange tale of Jan Bradley reissues, 6 Oct. 2013
This review is from: Soul Boppin Ladies (Audio CD)
Of these 4 artists Jan Bradley had the biggest hit yet has yet to be covered on CD.
Nella Dodds for instance has been issued on CD yet she never made the top 50 with what was the first single of Come See About Me.Also below the top 30 was Jackie Ross and Mitty Collier.
This kind of Uptown Soul was never affected by the British Invasion
