Collecting recordings from throughout the first five years of early-1960s heartthrob Bobby Rydell's career, this compilation features his first hits, like the Doc Pomus composition "I Dig Girls," standards like "That Old Black Magic," a wide variety of Brill Building classics like "The Third House (In From the Right)," and one early Lennon and McCartney composition, "A World Without Love." Significantly, Rydell's version of the latter song lost out to Peter and Gordon's British Invasion hit--the onetime teen idol was one of many U.S. pop stars supplanted by Beatlemania.

Rating 5.0 A very satisfied Australian Music Lover: from CANBERRA, Australian Capital Territ AU -- May, 13, 2007

Thank you for the promptness of your delivery which I just got today. It's made my day. I've been after this release by Bobby Rydell for a very long time (but unable to get it in Australia) -- especially his track 'I'll never dance again". The whole CD is a quality recording.


Rating 5.0 A part of the "Original sound of Philadelphia" Music Lover: from WESTLAKE, OH US -- March, 8, 2006

Bobby's hits on this album reflect the original sound of Philly that came out of Cameo-Parkway's hit factory, the songs America danced too. A long desired treasure, this CD is a must for any collector of that sound Bobby was so much a part of.
