Product description

Product Description

With Elvis away doing Uncle Sam s bidding, by 1958 the prospects for rock n roll were looking decidedly bleak. The void left by his departure meant the charts were suddenly awash with pretty boy pretenders to Presley s crown, purveyors of a new clean-cut, sanitised-for-your-protection sound that wouldn t frighten the horses and yet still had enough teen appeal to keep the airwaves hummin and malt shops hoppin . Gone was The King s edgy threat and in its place string-sweetened melodies and girl-next-door lyrics. While some may have OD d on sugar, our snappy sixty have retained their charm and made pop idols of many of the performers. Featuring some of the biggest names of the pre-British Invasion era, the Lucky Parker-compiled 2CD set Teen Dreams includes hits from one-time rockabilly Johnny Burnette swapping primal yelps for swooping strings, Gidget heart-throb James Darren, American Bandstand idols Fabian, Bobby Rydell and Frankie Avalon, pop princess Connie Francis, former Mouseketeer and beach party icon Annette, Joanie Sommers (77 Sunset Strip) and Hawaiian Eye s Connie Stevens, together with a wealth of lesser-heard teeners: Jimmy Beaumont, Dick Glasser, Barry Mann, The Casals, Bobby Curtola and Presley soundalike Ral Donner. Also included is an early offering from Gene Pitney and Ginny Arnell (as Jamie & Jane) together with the original versions of two songs covered by Blighty s own Billy Fury, A Fool s Memory aka Running Around (Ricky Shaw) and A King For Tonight (Barry Darvell), plus Linda Scott s charming cover of A Thousand Stars , also a hit for Fury in 1960. Recollecting those carefree days of high school rings and letter sweaters, Shelley Fabares, Johnny Tillotson, Paul & Paula and Jerry Keller complement our selection with four chart-topping singles.

This is an excellent 2 disc compilation by 'Fantastic Voyage' records (72.05mins & 70.32mins), the 60 tracks span the years 1959 to 62. There are teen ballads, group harmonies and some mid-tempo movers. Some tracks have stood the test of time and remain classics mainly by the big names, others still sound good but there are a few that are very twee indeed - a real mixed bag, but a really enjoyable listen overall. There is lots to discover here, it's a really good compilation to start off a collection of 'Teen Idol' sounds. I have most of the tracks but it's great to have them on one compilation - a couple of new favourites for me are 'Just a piece of paper' by Bobby Comstock and 'That someone should be me' by Johnny Rivers both are very good. The cd comes with an excellent 20 page colour booklet which has many great pics and informative liner notes. The sound quality is very good overall, except the sound level is a little low - turn it up when you play. If you like the type of teen pop then this a great compilation, much of it is very good. Recommended 8.5/10. (4.5 stars).

By Tony Martin TOP 1000 REVIEWER on 22 Mar. 2014
Format: Audio CD
Sub-titled "60 Peachy-Keen Pop Gems From The Pre-Beat Era", this a double set, in similar vein to Fantastic Voyage's co-release, "The Hits Of 1959" (see elsewhere). Here it spans 1959/62, sparse years for true rock'n'rollers and over here, we were not privy to the delights of letter sweaters and malt shops, tho we seemed to welcome the lachrymose, sugar-sweet, string-laden wailings of American popsters - many a US chart hit here repeated its success (more or less) in the UK. To be fair, there are many that caught my ear in period, mainly via radio, but as a true-blue pop 'snob', I passed on buying them - Slim Harpo over Bobby Vee every time!

As a package, the usual Fantastic Voyage values apply. Great cover shot, pics, colour label shots, US label (only) release details, chunky bookletful of notes by compiler Lucky Parker and confreres. He knows his onions, again I learnt more than I needed. Fifty-plus years after the events, the whole things screams 'American Teen!', my only solace being that, soon after, we inflicted the British Invasion on the US by way of revenge. Poptastic?
