Product description

Product Description

The Forgotten 45s 1960-1962 follows hot on the heels of The Forgotten 45s 1957-1959, Fantastic Voyage s previous survey of The Ones That Got Away, which has already proved a bigger-seller and been the subject of an enthusiastic review in The Daily Mirror. Not every record that s released can be a hit. Not every record that s released deserves to be a hit, but frequently records that do aren t and that s what this set is all about. Three CDs, packed full of great records that should have been hits, but weren t. Reflecting the musical preferences of the era, the featured styles run the gamut of R&B, doo wop, soul, rock & roll, country, and mainstream pop. Some of the tracks will never have been on legitimately released CDs before; all will give listening pleasure to collectors and pop music fans alike. Artists, labels and other pundits could reasonably have expected these recording to be UK hit singles, but they were denied that success. The reason may be apparent with hindsight: the timely release of a rival version, or the listening public starting to fall out of love with the artist, or their style of music. But other misses are harder to fathom, and of course it is this unpredictability that goes a long way to explain our fascination with hit records. Some of the featured tracks have become favourite oldies despite never making our charts ( Sticks And Stones , Last Night , Hello Walls , Pledging My Love ), some are wannabe hits by name artists whose chart pedigree is not in doubt (Pat Boone, Alma Cogan, Jackie Wilson, Bobby Darin, Craig Douglas, the Platters) and some were new kids on the block from both sides of the Atlantic, whose releases should have done so much better. A fascinating parallel narrative when considered alongside hits-of-the-year compilations, like Fantastic Voyage s exhaustive British Hit Parade series, The Forgotten 45s 1960-1962, and its companion set The Forgotten 45s 1957-1959, give collectors the chance to fill those holes in their archives which they ve always meant to fill, but haven t, and will give impulse CD buyers a thrilling reminder of records that passed consumers by in the heyday of pop music.
