5.0 out of 5 stars Ready for the King of Italian Doo Wop?, 13 May 2002
This review is from: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
This one has got to be one of my favourite cd's - and believe me, I own a lot!!! A great aspect about this particular disc is that it serves to show how brilliantly remastering can be done. Listening to these songs, it seems incredible that they were all recorded during the latter part of the 50s through the first half of the 60s. A fact, which never seizes to amaze me, given the clear and crisp sound quality these newly polished recordings have come to display. And the music itself? It's like being in heaven. Rock'n'Roll heaven, that is! Dion's fantastic voice and the exceptional backing from either the Belmonts or the Del-Satins, serve to cook up as tight groove as swinging as you'll ever get to hear. This disc is just full of classics such as 'Teeenager in Love', 'Runaround Sue', its equally as rockin'clone 'Lovers who Wonder', 'Little Diane', 'Sandy' etc. There's no doubt that you need to get your hands on this collection - it features the cream of the crop from everyone's favourite Bronx boy.... Consequently, I highly recommend it.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Must Have!, 13 May 2002
This review is from: Fourever (Audio CD)
This box is awesome! Ok, admittedly it contains a lot of recordings, which the casual fan already owns, but still there are some real unknown gems to be found. Moreover, each and every track is graced with superior sound quality that really does the songs justice. Levi Stubbs surely is one of the greatest soul singers of all time - listen to the overlooked classic "Love (is the Answer)", the unreleased stompin' "So Far" or the discofied version of "For Your Love". Man, that cat can SING! And the three other Tops ALWAYS provide excellent backing...
In addition hereto, the packaging is nothing short than brilliant with a very informative booklet filled with interesting photos. All in all, the box draws a picture of four likeable and talented guys, whose recorded legacy stands the test of time. Buy this one now!
