A re-issue, yes, but so much more!
on 30 October 2000
My copy just arrived, and I am simply amazed at what's included on this CD!
In addition to the original EMI material from 1962-63, which has been reissued on a number of different albums over the years, there are a number of items that were never included on previous albums, at least on none that I've been able to purchase.
Speaking as someone who on my last visit to England combed every used record and charity shop for a 45 of "That Riveria Touch", I couldn't believe my luck when I read the song list on this CD.
Also included: Boom Oo Yata-ta, Bring Me Sunshine, Grieg Piano Concerto (before Previn)We Get Along So Easily, A Wassailing, Me and My Shadow, We're the Guys, The Happiest Christmas of All, Positive Thinking, Now That You're Here, Your Loving Smile, The 'B' Side, Battery Chickens
In short, here's the next soundtrack for my life.
