5.0 out of 5 stars Great sixties music, 3 Jun. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: These Are The Good Times - The Complete Capitol Recordings (Audio CD)
Featuring her only original album (Beach blanket bingo, the last ten tracks here), this compilation brings together all of Donna's music recorded for Capitol in the mid-sixties. Apart from the album tracks, the rest of the compilation is made up of tracks released on singles or previously unreleased.

Unless you are already familiar with Donna's music, you won't find a lot of songs that you have heard before. Two titles that may look familiar (I believe, My way) are not the famous songs with those titles, but Call me (written by Tony Hatch) is one that most fans of sixties music will recognize. The booklet mentions the hit version by Chris Montez, pointing out that Donna recorded it first. Actually, I suspect Petula Clark recorded it before anybody else, but I believe she had another single out at the time so couldn't capitalize on being the first to record Call me.

Donna was strictly controlled by her parents, her sponsors and her record label, and eventually quit the business. Long after she quit, when most of her fans had given up any realistic hope of her return to the music business, but on her own terms.

For those who remember her from the sixties, this will no doubt be welcome. For those of us who are discovering her music for the first time, this is an interesting sixties discovery. Excellent.
