Grounded by the doc over a badly sprained ankle, I have been taking advantage of the free music available to stream via my Amazon Prime membership.
100 Greatest Hits 50’s & 60’s:
Oh boy, what awesome music they made back in the time when my Mom and Dad were just getting to know each other. So many wonderful tunes, some I recognise others are new to me.
This is a great collection of “original” recordings from “original artists” including hits such as Save the Last Dance for Me by The Drifters, April Love by Pat Boone, That'll Be the Day by Buddy Holly, Only You (And You Alone) by The Platters, Why Do Fools Fall in Love? by Frankie Lymon and The Teenagers, and Love Me Tender by Elvis Presley which was played at my Mom's funeral.
I highly recommend you listen to this no matter what age you are. The music is superb and at only £5.19 [that is 5p a song] it’s a bargain, more so if you can stream it for free :-)
As a senior citizen I have always been a lover of pop music. I have many 45s and LPs still in the loft, and in a special draw! 2 X 78s.
Many of these tracks I have bought as singles or on LPs. The first single I ever bought was a Pat Boon track on a 78 called Love Letters in The Sand.
Many of the tracks on this download are superb and I never ever thought I would hear them again. The sheer simplicity and raw talent and emotion of those early years of rock and roll and pop music come flooding back like Billy Fury with Maybe Tomorrow and Richy Valens with Donna and I really enjoyed hearing so many again.
The tracks all seem beautifully enhanced and seem to cover all of the popular hits I remember as a teenager in the late 50s early 60s.
To me this download is not a buy. It is a steal!!
To you young people I would say this download is something special that will help you understand where your music of today comes from.
What you have today we started! lived through! and loved it!!
Believe me you will not be disappointed. Buy it before the price goes up!
