Description by

Featuring 16 great revival tracks from some of the great artists of the 1950s, all recently re-recorded employing state-of-the-art technology. These great vocalists sound as wonderful today as they did way back when.


Product Description:

These are re-recordings of the original hits.
This collection is subtitled "16 Great Songs From Artists of the 1950s," and that cryptic statement should be read and read again before you plunk down your money. If you're a fan of vocal-group harmony, there's much here to relish, as groups like Earl Lewis and the Channels, Herb Cox and the Cleftones, Richard Blandon and the Dubs, and others sing their hearts out on these songs. However, if you're expecting these to be original 1950s recordings, forget it -- they're all new, stereo recordings, done with whatever personnel in each group is still alive and working the oldies circuit. While the material is enjoyable enough, a little truth in advertising would make this package go down a whole lot easier. ~ Cub Koda

'Cryptic' Review, of Cub Coda's Review! Music Lover: from GRANADA HILLS, CA US -- September, 7, 2017

I value Mr. Coda's reviews, because I feel that they are good, incisive AND 'We ain't gonna get no more!' I used to have the original issue of Vol 2 of this series, and am happy to be able to replace & obtain all 3 of these Volumes! While there is an irony here, I feel, in that while Cub only has a review for Volume One, here, he writes of 'a cryptic statement' and the surviving singers on this album (at the time): 'whatever personnel is still alive,' several years before he succumbed to his problems with diabetes and kidney failure. I value Oldies keeping this music, and Cub's reviews, available. It is interesting to note, that, at this time, it is (slightly) less expensive to buy all three volumes individually, as opposed to buying the 3 Volume compilation! If you like this style of music at all, at least some of these selections are great, and the recording quality is a big plus. In the Los Angeles area, I first heard about this series from D Js such as Steve Propes playing selections from it, on the radio.
