||Some of the greatest lost hits of all time|
When was the last time you heard "witchi tai to"?I never heard this song on the greatest oldies station-wcbs fm in new york in the 32 years they played oldies.

||Great Selection - Great Production|
I rate this cd five stars because of its production excellence. It is amazing how good the recordings sound. It makes one realize how much real musicianship went into these records back then.

Hard To Find 45's on CD, Vol. 6: More 60's Classics CD music This compilation is just what it says: number one hits on the American charts from the 1960s. It has a leg up on some similar anthologies, though, by virtue of its sheer quantity: 26 songs spanning the entire decade, which is pretty good value for a single CD. While it's true the selection is a little arbitrary, on the whole it's really good, and whether you care about chart statistics or not, it's an excellent disc if you're looking for an all-purpose collection of 1960s pop/rock classics. There are many core classics here, spanning rock, soul, pop, and the British Invasion: the Beach Boys' "Good Vibrations," Del Shannon's "Runaway," the Marvelettes' "Please Mr. Postman," Martha & the Vandellas' "(Love Is Like A) Heat Wave," Manfred Mann's "Do Wah Diddy Diddy," the Mamas & the Papas' "Monday, Monday," the Lovin' Spoonful's "Summer in the City," the Box Tops' "The Letter," the Troggs' "Wild Thing," the Temptations' "My Girl," and Marvin Gaye's "I Heard It Through the Grapevine." Actually, if there's one complaint, it's that British artists are only represented by those Manfred Mann and Troggs cuts. But even the less-critically canonized, poppy hits here are for the most part indisputable classics: the Turtles' "Happy Together," Tommy James & the Shondells' "Crimson and Clover," the Monkees' "I'm a Believer," the Strawberry Alarm Clock's "Incense and Peppermints," the Association's "Windy," Sonny & Cher's "I Got You Babe," and more. It's like a double-dozen dose of number one hits from oldies stations without the commercials or any of the clunkers ...
|Hard To Find 45's on CD, Vol. 8: 70's Pop Classics CD (2002) Top Seller
Hard To Find 45's on CD, Vol. 6: More 60's Classics album for sale Numerous hit-oriented collections have focused on various styles of '70s music from disco to classic rock, but Hard to Find 45's on CD, Vol. 8 is devoted to that decade's commercial pop in the broadest sense. Where else could you find Carl Douglas' "Kung Fu Fighting," Pilot's "Magic," and Hurricane Smith's "Oh, Babe, What Would You Say?" on one disc? A few songs are genuinely rare on CD, such as Boney M.'s "Rivers of Babylon" and Prelude's a cappella rendition of "After the Gold Rush." The remastering is excellent as usual for this label, with every track presented in true stereo and in the original single version. Considering how disposable this music is supposed to be (according to the conventional wisdom), it holds up very well 30 years later. ~ Greg Adams
Here are 20 really hard-to-find high charting hits. 17 of these songs made the Top 20, and all are digitally remastered in true stereo. Features Exile's "Kiss You All Over," Carl Douglas' "Kung Fu Fighting," Marilyn McCoo and Billy Davis Jr.'s "You Don't

Hard To Find 45's on CD, Vol. 6: More 60's Classics buy CD music 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

|Hard To Find 45's on CD, Vol. 7: More 60's Classics CD (2001)
Hard To Find 45's on CD, Vol. 6: More 60's Classics songs Here's a real grab bag of Top 40 hits from 1960 to 1966, some of them indeed very hard to find on CD or even hear on the radio. Some of them are not really not 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. It leans toward the innocuous pop side of pop/rock, though within that framework there's a lot of variety and a good amount of quality: slightly soul-influenced pop (Gene McDaniels' "A Hundred Pounds of Clay"), poppy, late doo wop (the Velvets' "Tonight [Could Be the Night]," the Chimes' "Once in a While"), British Invasion pop (Billy J. Kramer & the Dakotas' "Bad to Me," the Honeycombs' "Have I the Right," the Seekers' "I'll Never Find Another You," Cilla Black's "You're My World"), celebrity teen idols (Patty Duke's "Don't Just Stand There"), weird foreign one-shots (Kyu Sakamoto's "Sukiyaki"), jazz soul-pop (Nancy Wilson's "[You Don't Know] How Glad I Am"), and more. The dedicated collector might be interested in the items that are really the hardest to find or even heard on oldies radio, despite having been hit records. Those would include Nathaniel Mayer's relatively gutsy 1962 R&B-pop hit "Village of Love"; Mike Clifford's almost unbearably white-bread 1962 ballad "Close to Cathy"; Danny Williams' anodyne "White on White," which somehow made the Top Ten in early 1964 in the midst of the early British Invasion; and Joey Powers' 1963 Top Ten hit "Midnight Mary," a super-light, acoustic-flavored pop/rocker. The best of the obscurities is Verdelle Smith's 1966 number 38 hit "Tar and Cement," which sounds a little like an American pop-country spin on Dusty Springfield and was done (as "La Maison Ou J'ai Grandi") in the mid-'60s by French star Françoise Hardy. ~ Richie Unterberger

|Hard To Find 45's on CD, Vol. 5: 60's Pop Classics CD (2000) Top Seller
Hard To Find 45's on CD, Vol. 6: More 60's Classics album for sale You don't think of these 20 songs as being missing in action until you realize that most -- if not all of them -- just don't pop up on oldies anthologies very often. A wide-net approach like this that pairs "I Got You Babe" next to Bill Cosby's "Little Ole Man," with stops along the way to great one-offs from Joannie Sommers, Bob Luman, the Cookies, Nino Tempo and April Stevens, R.B. Greaves, Connie Stevens, the Marketts, Carla Thomas, the Cookies, and the Everly Brothers. A great little collection of sides that usually don't make the rounds, all in crystal-clear stereo except for five tracks presented in the original mono mixes. ~ Cub Koda
