'GREAT VALUE - HARBOURING MANY GOLDEN MEMORIES'
on 17 June 2015
These compilations are always worth a glance, as re-releases often on offer at a bargain price, this, only £3.00 currently on
Though it is probable that most collectors will almost certainly have all that can be found on-board spread between several
Compilations such as this or indeed upon individual artist's albums or singles, having so many favourites to play on just the
two discs is often a bonus in listening-pleasure terms.
Glancing through the track listings there are one or two numbers released by U.S artists that were indeed a hit for them on
home territory but here in the U.K were covered by artists over this side of the Atlantic and indeed hits for them.
Those that bought many of these tracks originally as singles (vinyl) back then will also know that some of the songs were indeed
found on the B-Side of the release.
However, overall, this is a worthy collectable at this bargain price as a way of hearing many superb hits on the one collection
with numbers such as (on disc one) - 'Only The Lonely' - 'Roy Orbison'......'Your'e Sixteen' - 'Johnny Burnette'.......'I'm Sorry' -
'Brenda Lee'......and......'He'll Have To Go' - 'Jim Reeves' (and on disc two) - 'Are You Lonesome Tonight' - 'Elvis' (which when
released raised a few eyebrows, seemed a change in style for the 'King' however it only went to prove he was equally as good
singing love-songs and ballads as was he with 'Rock')......'Please Help Me I'm Falling' - 'Hank Locklin'......'Put Your Head On My
Shoulder' - 'Paul Anka'......and.....'Tell Laura I Love Her' - 'Ricky Valance'........just a small sample of the great tracks that can be
found upon this 2-Disc Collection.
With many great memories from the late 50's and early 60's its surely has to be worthy of a glance........
