This review relates to the 18 track single CD product of this title. There is also a 3 CD compilation of the same name which DOES contain the original hits. Amazon seem to have mis-linked and confused these two products.
Even listening to the previews of the 18 tracks on this single disc on the Amazon website one can tell these are NOT the original hit recordings - they are later re-recordings, or perhaps out takes of the original hits.
A couple of them are quite good performances of those original hits (well done The Tremeloes), but most are pretty dire. I listened through all the samples and - as I have original singles of all these hits - I can definitively say NONE of them is the original original hit record.
I'm surprised at Amazon for carrying this turkey without a "not original hit recordings" warning on it. I thought they cared about music.
