'THE 'DREAMBOATS' COLLECTION JUST KEEPS ROLLIN' ALONG',
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Dreamboats And Miniskirts: Summer In The City (Audio CD)
For me 'Dreamboats' collection remains a highly collectable music series.
In some of the earlier issues many noticed the inclusion of one or two repeated
tracks from earlier issues on-board, the songs chose were usually classic-sounds
and for me fitted in with a different play-list, remaining a great listen.
Happily the 'Dreamboats' series appears to have widened the period of selection
some, opening up many possibilities for future releases, I believe as with this issue
we'll always have an occasional inclusion we've seen before, however overall
'Dreamboats and Miniskirts' has moved a little deeper into the Sixties than the
'Petticoats' which also included tracks from the late Fifties.
Obviously copyright issues and possibly cost prevents the inclusion of many artists
and songs many would like to see included, however what we have on-board this
release is many favourite songs from the golden sixties.
Which makes this a must for collector's of pop-sounds of the era covered, true many
collectors again will have most if not all the songs on-board either by compilation
or actual specific artists CD's and of course many like myself will own much of the
content on treasured Vinyl, however, again, for me it's all about hearing many
favourite memories in different song and play order selection.
On-board there is certainly a play-list to cherish...
I'll again highlight some of the great sounds to enjoy on this 2-CD compilation to
demonstrate the quality of what's on offer........on disc one........'Procol Harum' --
'A Whiter Shade of Pale'........'The Searchers' --'Needles and Pins'........'The Spencer
Davies Group' --'Keep on Running'........'The Walker Brothers' --'Make it Easy on
Yourself'........'The Hollies' --'I'm Alive'........'The Nashville Teens' --'Tobacco Road'...
'The Rocking Berries' --'He's In Town' ( This, like many was indeed a-one-hit-wonder)
and........'Marianne Faithful' --'As Tears Go By' ..........just one or two of the many
terrific memories to be found on disc one........on disc two........'The Beach Boys' --
'I Get Around'........'The Byrds' --'Mr Tambourine Man' ( A 'Bob Dylan' classic of course)
'The Small Faces' --'All or Nothing'........'Sandie Shaw' --(There's) Always Something
There To Remind Me'........'The Merseybeats' --'I Think Of You'........'The Four Pennies'
--'Juliet'........'Brian Poole and the Tremeloes'.........'Cher' --'Bang Bang(My Baby Shot
Me Down).........again just a hint of the superb songs to enjoy on disc two................
I have simply plucked half a dozen or so from each disc to give you an indication of
the content, those I have not listed have as much quality to those I have, it's truly a
great selection of sixties sounds.
I reckon this is a great selection harboured upon this 2-CD compilation, well worth
checking out I'd say, it's full of favourite songs.
Because 'Dreamboats and(Petticoats)Miniskirts' have obviously widened the selection years,
I'm sure we'll have many more releases to come.
