Dreamboats and Petticoats 5
on 13 November 2011
For those madly in love with the smash hit musical and this spin-off series crammed with music from the late 50s and (mostly) early 60s, Dreamboats & Petticoats' latest offering "Coffee Bars and Candy", is bound to please. The selection covers a wide range of popular music:catchy pop tunes, hard-driving rock 'n' roll, soul, funky r & b, country and supper club ballads. The Dreamboats and Petticoats cast renders stunning interpretations of pop gems from the late 50s and early 60s in fabulous stereo. The overall sound quality of the originals is good, but for some strange reasons there are mono versions galore of yesteryears' UK and US hits that can be easily obtained in true stereo. Still, if you're dying to relive the excitement of the 50s and 60s music-wise, this double CD is as good as any of the countless reissues of past gold.
