The two copies of this recording that i bought from 2 different suppliers both have proved faulty.
Track 3 (Happy Wanderer) and track 10 (Make it soon) are only audible from the left channel speaker, this fault was also confirmed by Pickwick themselves.

Even on a Mono recording, audio should come out evenly through both speakers.

The remaining 20 tracks on this disk all play satisfactory,

Unfortunately, these two faulty tracks heavily mar the whole CD, hence the one star.

With a running time of approx 57 minutes this 23 track compilation, which has been licensed courtesy of back catalogue management, adds to only a small number of existing collections. There is the inevitable duplication with earlier compilations but there are some additional tracks such as Eh Cumpari and Mary Rose with a romantic Dick James vocal and beautiful Stanley Black piano accompaniment that make it well worth buying. The sound quality is clear and the selections represent the happy go lucky music that was popular pre rock n roll.

Nobody in this review section seems to have noticed or mentioned that track 3, listed as The Happy Wanderer is actually I Love, Love, Love It and The Happy Wanderer is not featured on the CD at all. Apart from that error, the album is in my opinion an extremely good introduction to the music of The Stargazers.

If you can remember 1952 then you will remember this. I have yet to get a response from the younger members of my family but for me it is pure nostalgia.

Reliving the 40's and 50's, I especially enjoyed Sugarbush and I See The Moon, both of which I had on 78-records many years ago.

Its dificult finding the real Stargazers on the Web as the name was used in the 80s for a rock'n'roll revival group.
Their records were mostly shared with other versions-sometimes they won (the Mariners' I See The Moon was the American version by the Mariners and I don't think it was ever issued here) and sometimes the original won (The Happy Wanderer and 3 Guy Mitchell songs)
Harder to understand is just why their version of I See The Moon ended up as a No 1 hit as I rate it one of the worst records ever made
Founded by later Beatles publisher Dick James who appeared on their version of My Truly Truly Fair the Stargazers had 4 different girl singers between 1953 and 1960 when they phased out-Marie Benson was the first followed by Jean Campbell,Eula Parker and June Marlowe.
My copy has a different sleeve and has 23 tracks
