The Ink Spots played a large role in pioneering the black vocal group-harmony genre, helping to pave the way for the doo wop explosion of the '50s. The quavering high tenor of Bill Kenny presaged hundreds of street-corner leads to come, and the sweet harmonies of Charlie Fuqua, Deek Watson, and bass Hoppy Jones (who died in 1944) backed him flawlessly…

The Ink Spots hit the American Top Ten 19 times between 1939 and 1949. Thirteen of those Top Ten hits are among the 20 tracks on this British compilation, along with the chart entries "Java Jive," "Someone's Rocking My Dream Boat," and "(It Will Have to Do) Until the Real Thing Comes Along," and the group's non-hit covers of four other songs, two of them U.S. standards ("I'll Never Smile Again," "It's a Sin to Tell a Lie") and the other two better known in Britain ("No Orchids for My Lady," "We'll Meet Again"). Twenty tracks on a single disc is a generous selection, and most of the Ink Spots' biggest hits are included, even if the collection is incomplete.

Greatest-hits albums are a traditional way of buying time for artists between albums. Peter Gabriel's, entitled Shaking the Tree: Sixteen Golden Greats, arrived in December of 1990, as he was toiling away at the follow-up to his smash So, which was four years old at that point. As greatest-hits albums go, it's pretty good, containing all the hits, plus an effective re-recording of "Here Comes the Flood" and a good new song in the form of the title track. While the sequencing may leave something to be desired – it is neither chronological, nor as supple as a good mix tape – it does contain nearly everything a casual fan could want (nothing from the second album, though; both "On the Air" or "D.I.Y." would have been nice additions), making it an effective sampler.

This double-disc, 50-track collection of the Shadows can only be recommended to avid collectors. After breaking off with singer Cliff Richard (they were his backing band), the Shadows chalked up numerous instrumental hits in the early '60s, including "Apache," "Man of Mystery," and "Kon-Tiki." They became the British equivalent of the Ventures. While the first disc is more than satisfying, the second disc takes a quick nosedive and consists mainly of filler along the lines of "Don't Cry for Me Argentina," "Theme from The Deer Hunter," "Nights in White Satin," and "Rodrigo's Guitar Concerto de Aranjuez." With the exception of Shadows fanatics, 50 Golden Greats would have been a much better value cut in half.

"Shaking the Tree: Sixteen Golden Greats" was released in 1990 as Peter Gabriel's first "greatest hits" album, including songs from his first solo album "Peter Gabriel" (I or Car) (1977), through "Passion: Music for The Last Temptation of Christ" (1989).
The tracks are creatively re-ordered, ignoring chronology. Some of the tracks were different from the album versions. New parts were recorded for several tracks in Gabriel's Real World Studios. Most songs are edited for time, either as radio, single, or video edit versions.

One of the best and most commercially successful pop/rock acts of the British Invasion, when the Hollies began recording in 1963, they relied heavily upon the R&B/early rock & roll covers that provided the staple diet for countless British bands of the time. They quickly developed a more distinctive style of three-part harmonies, ringing guitars, and hook-happy material, penned by both outside writers and themselves, eventually composing most of their repertoire on their own. The Hollies: 20 Golden Greats was a compilation album by The Hollies, produced in 1978 at EMI by Ron Richards. The album peaked at No. 2 in the UK album chart.

This three-disc compilation features many of the Mills Brothers' best tracks. Although Golden Greats does not cover the vocal group's whole career, it still competes well with the definitive Mills Brothers: The Anthology (1931-1968) and perhaps represents them better.

Apache, Mystery Man, Kon-Tiki or Foot Tapper will be familiar to some here who has been around long enough to remember Cliff Richard and rock n roll in the sixties


Not Elvis and certainly not The Beatles, but The Shadows and The Ventures. Like many lead guitar players of those days, listening to both these bands spurred me to learn the guitar very early in my life. Thanks to our friend gandallon, I couldn't resist posting this in response to his wonderful share of The Ventures music a few days back.

This three-CD set is very attractive in some obvious ways – listing for barely $11.00 and containing 75 songs, it's the most generously programmed Andrews Sisters compilation that one can buy, even outstripping the Readers' Digest collection from the '90s…
