Lovesick Blues GEMS FROM THE MGM VAULTS is a 3 disc set which comes in a pastic case.

All of the tracks on the CDs are, you will be glad to know, the Original recordings.

BUT Amazon's track listing isn't exactly clear and I must admit I found it hard to read when it's cramped up.
I did not notice Gene Kelly in there for example!
So here is a clear track listing which makes the artists and title just that bit clearer.

Have pity I'm too old for a paper round and too young to retire!

Don't include the last track 26 on your listing.

It's a sad thought that many of these artist will now have passed away after over 50 years or more since the tracks were originally recorded.

In a way it's really good that when we hear them again today we can think back to the original artists.
It would be nice if you could say a little prayer for them.
Like the add for Tesco says `Every little helps'.

Fantastic Collection of greats and obscurities, but nonetheless still very good. But what an absolute crying shame it is that 1962 is the end of the line for all of these comprehensive compilations, at a very reasonable price...until 2033!! Thanks to Richie F*****g Cliffard. Thanks a bunch, matey. In actual fact the real benefactors of "Cliff's Law" (Vomit) will be the already stinklngly rich record companies. And don't be kidded into falling for the it's for the poor session musicians line. In actual fact, it will make precious little difference to them.

like this for a few pounds terrific sound, I have bought all the one label releases and found everyone first class.

I have others in this series and love them all. This MGM set is 3-CD discs and 75 tracks. It gives me a good smattering of Connie Francis, Hank Williams(Sr) and David Rose. If one remembers these tracks and had the original MGM 45rpm records this is a perfect replacement and full of memories. Clean transfers all. Go for it if popular music from 50+ years ago is your bag.

Others in the series often prove hard for me to purchase due to Marketplace sellers who restrict international or some countries but the price is a steal for most of these.

Like so many of these albums from a particular label some well known classics and also some tracks i have only heard once or twice, years ago. Good to hear them again. So many great singers who never really got much recognition.

There are some good tracks on this compilation, the notes are informative and many of the tracks here were an education to my ears. Simple music, constructed songs, not all great, but fun music from less complicated times.
