This review is from: These Are The Good Times - The Complete Capitol Recordings (Audio CD)
This is a very good 29 track value for money compilation from 'Cherry Red' records of Donna Loren's Capitol output from 1964 to 1966. It contains the original beach movie album 'Beach blanket bingo' (tracks 20 to 29) which is really very good. The first track of the album is 'Cycle set' which is a powerful, driven track written by Gary Usher. Other great tracks from the album are 'It only hurts when I cry' and 'New love'. The first tracks of the cd compilation are a mix of Mono original 45's and 8 previously unreleased tracks. Overall the bonus tracks are ok to good with the best track being 'They're jealous of me' , the mono singles are quite strong especially 'Just a little girl', 'Woman in love' and 'So, do the zonk'. The sound quality is very good and in mono. The cd comes with a 20 page informative colour booklet that's got some nice pics in it. Overall, a very good compilation, with some throw away, lightweight tracks but also with some great sounding tracks. 7.5/10.
