||"Anything BUT a Tragedy"|
If you loved the soft, melodic harmonies of Gary, Gretchen and Barbara in their hey-day.... you'll LOVE hearing all of the hits again & again! There are even a few songs on this CD that I'd completely forgotten about....

||Mellow Mixture of Pop|
This CD gives you every original hit recording by this Washington-based trio that charted nearly a dozen times between the late 50's and early 60's including two number ones and 9 top 40 hits.

||Truly the best of the Fleetwoods|
This is really the best of the best of the Fleetwoods. There were songs from their original record and also from a late release "Burried Treasure."
By a reviewer (Memphis, TN)
||Not all the chart hits are on this CD|
This a fantastic CD of most of The Fleetwoods best. However, four of their chart records are missing from this package.

||Excellent group from the late 50's - early 60's|
I never knew very much about The Fleetwoods until I recently subscribed to Sirius radio and began to hear two or three of their songs.
By Mike (Ocean Springs, MS)

By Gina (Alabama)
Many came before and many have come after, none wll ever match their haunting sound.

Come Softly to Me: The Very Best of the Fleetwoods CD music Don't let the title fool you; after listening to The Only Doo-Wop Collection You'll Ever Need, you'll definitely want more. This is a good starting point for the curious, since all the basics are here in the original hit versions: "The Great Pretender," "Earth Angel," "I Only Have Eyes for You," "Goodnight Sweetheart, Goodnight," and, thrown in for good measure, a few tracks that even vocal group scholars wouldn't mind hearing again by the Marvelows, the Duprees, the Jive Five, and the Earls. While this is an excellent primer, the best representation of vocal group harmonies of the era remains the lavish (and pricey) 101-track Doo Wop Box on Rhino. ~ Al Campbell

Cameo Parkway 1959-1964: The Best Of Bobby Rydell CD (2005)
Come Softly to Me: The Very Best of the Fleetwoods songs 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.

|Hard To Find 45's on CD, Vol. 2: 1961-64 CDs (1996) Top Seller
Come Softly to Me: The Very Best of the Fleetwoods album for sale The second installment of the Hard to Find 45's series is, like the first, a wide assortment of Top 40 hits, some of them indeed very hard to find on CD or even hear on the radio. Some of them are not really that hard to find on CD, though this disc (like every one in this series) takes pains to present original 45 RPM single versions, often in stereo. Whereas the first volume was devoted to material from 1955-1960, this goes into the next era (1961-1964), and though it's pretty pop-inclined, there's a good deal of diversity. There's doo wop verging on soul by the Stereos ("I Really Do Love You," the Flares' "Foot Stompin'," Clyde McPhatter's "Lover Please"), girl-sung teen idol pop (Little Peggy March's "I Will Follow Him," Marcie Blane's "Bobby's Girl"), the poppiest brand of girl group sounds (the Murmaids' "Popsicles and Icicles," Diane Renay's "Navy Blue," the Caravelles' "You Don't Have to Be a Baby to Cry"), the foreign novelty (Singing Nun's "Dominique"), middle-of-the-road pop (Joe Dowell's "Wooden Heart"), forgotten British Invasion/middle-of-the-road pop/folk-country (the Bachelors' "Diane"), and a hot rod tune (the Hondells' "Little Honda") whose relatively hard-driving toughness is almost out of character on this CD. As far as hits that are really hard to hear on oldies radio or buy on CD in some fashion, there aren't that many. But some of the tracks that really don't show up much on whatever channels include the rockabilly pop of Larry Finnegan's 1962 hit "Dear One," Paul & Paula's "Hey Paula" follow-up hit "Young Lovers," Richard Chamberlain's celebrity hit one-shot "Theme From Dr. Kildare (3 Stars Will Shine Tonight)," Joe Dowell's 1962 hit "Little Red Rented Rowboat," and, above all, Julie Rogers' gloppy orchestral number ten 1964 single "The Wedding," a throwback to pre-rock vocal pop that somehow was a big hit when such music was being rapidly phased out of the pop mainstream. Surprisingly, Rogers was a young British singer, though one virtually never mentioned as being part of the British Invasion in subsequent times. ~ Richie Unterberger

Complete Hits of Tommy Edwards CD (1995) Top Seller
Come Softly to Me: The Very Best of the Fleetwoods CD music Twenty of Tommy Edwards' best, including both versions of "It's All in the Game," a song he first placed on the charts in 1951 (number 18), and with a new arrangement, it went all the way to number one in 1958. The 1958 hit was amazing considering Edwards was a '40s crooner. His engaging tenor justifies every track, including Gene Pitney's "Blue Heartaches." ~ Andrew Hamilton
all of his hits from 1958-60, feat. the title song written by Vice President Charles Gate Dawes in the 1920's, which later became a hit in 1958

Greatest Hits CD (1994)
Come Softly to Me: The Very Best of the Fleetwoods buy CD music Brian Hyland's "Itsy Bitsy Teenie Weenie Yellow Polka-Dot Bikini" is one of those songs that straddles the line between silly and annoying, but the public thought highly enough of it to make it a number one hit in 1960. Listeners expecting a full menu of similar novelties will be surprised by Hyland's Greatest Hits. Spanning the years 1960-1970, Greatest Hits consists mostly of Hyland's folk-pop from the mid- to late '60s, concluding with his 1970 hit version of the Impressions' "Gypsy Woman." Hyland's later singles seemed to aspire to "seriousness," although the aura of bubblegum pop remained regardless of the material. Most of these 18 tracks were charting hits although only three cracked the Billboard Top Ten. ~ Greg Adams
