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.

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 early Buddy Holly hits collection will please vinyl fans in search of the bespeckled one's late-'50s hits. Including perennials like "That'll Be the Day," "Oh Boy," "It's So Easy," and "Peggy Sue," the album also features fine covers of "Brown Eyed Handsome Man" and "Bo Diddley," not to mention lushly orchestrated stunners such as "Raining in My Heart," "True Love Ways," and the Paul Anka-penned "It Doesn't Matter Anymore." Along the way, one hears hefty premonitions of the Beatles' pre-1965 sound, one of the first self-contained rock bands in fine form, and some of most lyrical and substantial songs from the music's golden beginnings. Holly's sound was more country than R&B, and as such also prefigured the folk-pop of both the British Invasion and the West Coast sound of the '60s. A perfect introduction for those trolling the discount bins.

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. That's more than three hours of music, and it's hard to complain about the programming, all drawn from the trio's Decca recordings (though one wishes the makers had found room for "The House of Blue Lights"). It doesn't get a higher rating than this, however, because none of the material is assembled in any discernible order whatsoever (except, perhaps, to maximize the variety and entertainment value at any given point on any of the discs); there would also seem to be better masters of several of the songs that do appear here. Additionally, there is not a single word of annotation, not that one would expect much at this price. On the plus side, there are quite a few numbers here that haven't made it onto MCA's major compilations of the group's work, including oddities from Don Raye such as "Scrub Me Mama with a Boogie Beat," "Rumors Are Flying." The result is an uneven collection that will satisfy and even delight casual listeners, but make more interested listeners thirst ever more for a Bear Family box devoted to the Andrews Sisters.
