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.

This has been a great series, for me it's ''the track-list mix' choice of music, for those of us that were there, the memories are truly ''priceless''
Again there are one or two 'B-sides'' on board from memory, however as i've said before, many back then were as good and often better than the ''A-sides'' (So for those that remember these numbers, it's certainly, no problem)
On the first disc we have songs from 'Elvis ( The King ) 'Dusty Springfield' 'The Four Seasons' 'Sam Cooke' 'Brenda Lee' and 'Ray Charles' to name just a few blasts-from-the past' you no doubt remember the songs like 'Rag Doll' 'The Swiss Maid'' ''Speak to me Pretty'' great mix on the first disc.
The second disc gives you treasures from artist's such as 'Cliff Richard'' and his great number ''Please don't Tease'' and of course released some years after the ''day the music died'' ''Buddy Holly's'' 'Brown Eyed Handsome Man'' along with songs from 'The Everly's' 'Eddie Cochran' 'Lonnie Donegan' 'Bobby Vee' and 'Bob Luman's' - ''Let's Think about Living'' ...Great artists great songs, great memories.
As we all know many of the artist's are no longer with us, many left this world far too soon, however their music will always live in our memories.
Great purchase,,,,,close yer' eyes and enjoy the many treasured memories on board...................Worth checking out the play list.

Another great in the Dreamboats & Petticoats franchise. If you are young enough to remember the original hits clear the kitchen or living room floor, put your dancing shoes on and enjoy the nostalgia.

Bought every disc in the series.Seen The show 4 times. The music keeps my old man's feet tapping and the blood in his 70 year old legs pumping.
What more can I say 'ROCK ON'
Great,terrific,fabulous music of my youth!

More great music from the 60's. If you were alive then - a baby boomer- and liked the music from those happier times then you will love this album.
For me the days of Pirate Radio flooded back, and their sad demise (thanks to Harold Wilson and the BBC which set out to prove you can't have teenagers enjoying themselves).
The bonus tracks from the show Dreamboats and Petticoats were good too. For those who have seen the show they brought back more memories, and for the ageing teenagers from yesteryear well treat yourself to a trip to memory lane.

Bought this for my husband for Christmas as he enjoys the 50's and 60's music. He is very pleased with it, although as usual with CD's one or two songs not enjoyed.

This CD was purchased because I've already purchased all of the previous albums & wanted to continue my collection.
The album was alright but I would say is the weakest of the collection so far -I didn't know as many songs as I thought I would.
