Two decades of chart-topping pop hits from 1953 to 1973 are presented on 10 CDs. The original hits by the original artists that made them great including: Dion, The Turtles, Frankie Avalon, Gladys Knight & The Pips, The Brooklyn Bridge, Mungo Jerry, The Lovin' Spoonful and many, many more.
Collectables' History of Rock Box is an attractive package for consumers interested in AM radio hits of the '50s and '60s. Spread out over five discs, all of these songs are recognizable even if the performers themselves are not. More than likely the casual music lover will only want one-hit wonders that appear throughout these five discs, including Toni Fisher ("The Big Hurt"), Curtis Lee ("Pretty Little Angel Eyes"), the Hollywood Argyles ("Alley Oop"), Paul & Paula ("Hey Paula"), Soul Survivors ("Expressway to Your Heart"), the Five Americans ("Western Union"), Betty Everett "It's in His Kiss [The Shoop Shoop Song]"), Marcie Blaine ("Bobby's Girl"), the Castaways ("Liar Liar"), and the Capitols ("Cool Jerk"). Unlike similar budget-line box sets, these songs are not re-recordings by the artists who made them famous; these are the original versions. ~ Al Campbell
