4.0 out of 5 stars Excellent R&B 1960s workout, 1 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
This album does pretty much what it says on the tin; 16 of the 22 tracks are Top 40 hit singles (only the instrumental 'Sweet Pea' is absent) with the emphasis very much on the period from 1964 to mid-1966 when Paul Jones was the featured vocalist and 2 of the group's 3 Number One hits arrived ['Do Wah Diddy Diddy' and 'Pretty Flamingo']. When Jones left to pursue solo projects, the little known Mike D'Abo joined the fold for the period mid-1966 to 1969 and the hits kept flowing with 'Mighty Quinn' completing the hat-trick of chart toppers.
If you like R&B flavoured pop music of the 1960s, then I can guarantee that you will like this collection. In order to acquire more of the latter period featuring the 'poppier' vocal style of Mike D'Abo, then I can heartily recommend 'The Very Best of the Fontana Years' - an interesting album which I have reviewed in full elsewhere.
