again the 'dreamboats and petticoats' series dishes up another delightful
mix of 'magic memories'
if like myself you've been on a mission to replace your treasured 'vinyl'
collection onto 'CD', I don't think you'll find too many rare-tracks on
board, for me, it's all about the mix, which is again, 'terrific'
as with the previous releases in this magical series I do again detect one
or two 'B-sides' ( as I've mentioned before however, back then the 'B-sides'
were often as good as the 'A-sides )
on disc one we have great sounds from artists such as 'Bobby Darin' 'Roy Orbison'
'Bobby Vee' 'The Everly's' 'Marty Wilde' along with 'Cliff' and 'Elvis' -- just
a few names highlighted from the vast array of legendary stars and their songs
to enjoy.
on disc two, more great names to admire and reflect upon such as 'Craig Douglas'
'Eddie Cochran' 'Joe Brown' 'Tommy Roe' 'Tommy Steele' and yes 'Elvis' and
'Cliff'
to be honest this 2-CD compilation is quite simply full of wall-to-wall great
singers and their songs, so sit back, close your eyes and drift back in time.
( sadly many of the artists featured are no longer with us, however for many of
us their memories and music remain ) well worth adding to your collection.

This is yet another good compilation. I have a lot of the music but there are always tracks I haven`t got, but that does not mean I will buy it as I am not a completist. I buy because I like what I am buying, and this particular series is exceptionally good and this cd is the best so far. Anyone who likes the "Real Rock `n` Roll", ie late 50`s early 60`s, would love this compilation. I know of a very young lady who likes it, so it is for all ages, and I would recommend it to everybody. Try it for yourself, the music is really good and of course, the quality is first class.

All Dreamboats and Petticoats are amazing. Grew up with that music which cannot be beaten. Have the CD's in the car and it makes any journey more pleasurable

Memories are made of this.
I remember the petticoats and wished I was old enough to wear them. I was a teenager in the sixties but I'll admit to being one of those singing and dancing children (with my mum on piano,) so I remember most of them well. They brought back memories of listening to the radio and the smell of the Sunday lunch. I had forgotten though, how crisp and clear their voices were I recommend this to anyone wanting a large helping of nostalgia.

I bought this CD because it had a particular couple of tracks that I adore.
In addition to those, other songs were almost as good and made me realise just how good those songs of the 60's and 70's were!
Words and meaning you can understand, melodies that stick with you, and even after many years these songs come back to me, I can even remember the words!
I am now 18 again!

A great selection of well=known hits of the period, representing excellent value for money. Sound quality is very good bearing in mind that these were originally vinyl recordings. A totally nostalgic experience for me, which brought all those memories of the 50's and 60's flooding back. Love it.
