'A SUPERB COLLECTION OF MEMORIES'
on 3 October 2013
This is a terrific mix of old and not so old pop favourites.
Usually on this type of compilation you'll get maybe a disc of 50's
and 60's a disc of 60's and 70's and a disc of 80's and 90's with
maybe one or two 00's, often the 60's stretching across a couple
of discs.........this compilation blends sounds of these decades
to give an interesting insight into the music one or two of us
remember down the years.
Music charts of course started way back in 1952 certainly before I
was taking notice of the music of the day.
There are so many stand out numbers on each disc it would be difficult
to pick out favourites.........i'll give you a few numbers from each
as an example......on disc one...'T.Rex' --'Metal Guru' ...'Nena --
'99 Red Balloons' ...'Wham' --'Freedom' ...'Right Said Fred' --Deeply
Dippy' ( I point out with a smile ) ...'Westlife' --'Flying without Wings'
...'Bewitched' --'Rollercoaster' and 'Men at Work' --'Down Under'
on disc two...'Elvis' --'Jailhouse Rock' ...'Freda Payne' --'Band of Gold'
...'Edison Lighthouse' --'Love Grows where my Rosemary goes' ....'Christie'
--'Yellow River' ...'David Essex' --'Hold me Close' ...'Boney M' --Rivers
of Babylon' ...'The Three Degrees' --'When will I see you Again' and 'Leo
Sayer's --'When I need You'
on disc three....'Jennifer Rush' --The Power of Love' ...'Johnny Ray' --
'Just a Walking in the Rain' ...'Doris Day's --'Whatever Will Be Will be'
...'Perry Como' --'Magic Moments' ( 'Perry had many many hits mainly during
the 50's very little to speak of during the 60's -then during the 70's he
suddenly seemingly from nowhere had two top ten successes with 'For the
Good Times' and 'And I Love You So' ) anyway continuing with disc three...
'Zager and Evans' --'In The Year 2525' ...'Roy Orbison's' --'It's Over'
'Gary Puckett and Union Gap' --'Young Girl' ...'John Denver' --'Annie's Song'
...'Bonnie Tyler's' --'Total Eclipse of the Heart' and 'Simon and Garfunkel.s
--'Bridge over Troubled Water' ........the songs I've plucked out of the sixty
track compilation being just a sample of the quality on board.
overall i'd have to say, it's 'Great Listening Material' throughout, very few
numbers I wouldn't want to have on a number one collection such as this, also
I have to say the sound quality is brilliant..........for any music collector
this is a great-value-for-,money item to add to your collection.
