ANOTHER GREAT TRIP BACK TO 'YESTERYEAR',
This review is from: Dreamboats & Petticoats 3 (Audio CD)
here we go again ! yes...the collection from 'dreamboats and petticoats' continues.
the collection has again brought back many often seen tracks along with some that
are not seen too often, which for me at least, is the attraction the series puts
i suspect like myself many of you will have bought many if not most on vinyl way
back when, and in an effort to cover your collection onto 'CD' will have many of these
tracks over and over again.
however, this series has for the third time come up with several tracks not seen too
often like....'connie francis's'--'stupid cupid'...'johnny preston's' --'running bear'
....'tommy roe's'--'folk singer'...'kenny ball's (trad jazz)--'midnight in moskow'...
'brenda lee's'--'i'm sorry'...'joe brown's'--'it only took a minute'...'frankie vaughan's'
--'tower of strength'...'freddie cannon's'--'pallisades park'...'the crystals'--'da do ron ron'
even tracks from mainly 50's icons 'tommy steele' and 'lonnie donegan'
( again, if my memory serves me right,there are again one or two b-sides...however,very often
back then, often as good as the a-sides we'd bought them for)
to bring the above with the allmost rarities on an easy-flow 2'CD' collection there are tracks
from the usual suspects on board like 'elvis'...'cliff'...'roy orbison'...'neil sadaka'...
'the drifters'...and 'billy fury' along,of course with many,many more.....just how good
would these 'yester-year' collections be if they included stars like 'the beatles' and the
'stones' along with a few more, that would truly reflect the memories that many of us have of
overall for me, buying these albums of precious reflections of a by-gone age is indeed priceless.
'hey' if others in your household say 'for god's sake turn it down' find yerself some space of
'yer' own, get that 'air-guitar' out again,close yer' eyes and.......enjoy.
( these were indeed the days of 'the birth of pop' )
