My husband started a list of cd's he would like for christmas, when i found everyone of them on your web site, i kept my secret until christmas.
By mary_tubbs (hernando, ms)
A lot of tunes that I personally like and some I don't.
By EldonSurette (Edmonton,Canada)
Even the most obscure of tunes bring back memories, and this is one album that takes me back to my childhood! It's nice to have better quality recordings of some of the songs I so poorly put onto cassette off the radio back in the 70's!

Hard To Find 45's on CD, Vol. 8: 70's Pop Classics songs '80s Pop Hits is a three-disc set from Sony with a heavy emphasis on ballads, many of which continue to be played on adult contemporary radio stations across the U.S. The relatively upbeat material -- like Wham!'s "Wake Me Up Before You Go-Go," Toto's "Rosanna," Luther Vandross' "Stop for Love," and Deniece Williams' "Let's Hear It for the Boy" -- tends to be safe enough for waiting-room listening. But it is definitely the slow, soft material (joined by a few power ballads) that takes center-stage: Surface's "Shower Me with Your Love," Lisa Lisa & Cult Jam's "All Cried Out," and Gregory Abbott's "Shake You Down" are some of the inclusions. ~ Andy Kellman

Hard To Find 45's on CD, Vol. 8: 70's Pop Classics 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. 8: 70's Pop Classics album for sale 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: Pop & Country Classics CD (2002)
Hard To Find 45's on CD, Vol. 8: 70's Pop Classics CD music The Hard to Find 45s on CD series is a very subjective -- and some would say guaranteed to start an argument or fight at your next party with loudmouth music freaks -- batch of compilation recordings that focuses on various aspects of genre-specific music and time periods. This set centers itself on country tunes that became crossover successes from the 1950s through the urban(e) cowboy era in 1982 and pop music that charted by country artists. Some tracks would have been impossible to exclude, such as Lefty Frizzell's number one country chart smash "Saginaw, Michigan," even if it scored a lowly number 85 on the pop chart. Same goes for Leroy Van Dyke's reading of Isaac Hayes' "Walk on By," which scored a number five in pop and didn't chart in the country Top 40, and Ferlin Husky's "Gone," which went to the top of the country list and scored a number four in pop. They are included as evidence of "marginal" crossovers and provided the template by which other recordings would be measured, recorded, and released -- at least in the singles and jukebox markets. But there are some forgotten gems here as well, including the Marvin Rainwater nugget "Gonna Find Me a Bluebird," Ned Miller's awesome floor-burner "From a Jack to a King," and the Bellamy Brothers' deeply philosophical and sensitive ballad "If I Said You Had a Beautiful Body Would You Hold It Against Me?" Some of the choices here are pure pop schmaltz done by supposedly genre-specific artists, such as Sylvia's schlocky piece of radio trash "Nobody" and Tom Jones trying to cash in on the cowboy mug-shot parade (so did Engelbert Humperdinck but he didn't chart) with his read of Greenaway and Mason's "Say You'll Stay Until Tomorrow." Ultimately, it is in two unlikely candidates that the zenith of this pop culture truth is realized: B.J. Thomas' "(Hey Won't You Play) Another Somebody Done Somebody Wrong Song" and Roy Clark's magnificent and tender "Yesterday When I Was Young." The Thomas track topped both charts. There must be some other kind of logic at work here given the inclusion of Lefty's brother David's 1982 country hit "I'm Gonna Hire a Wino to Decorate Our Home," which topped the country chart and didn't place in pop. There are plenty of those. Plenty! Why is this one here? Perhaps it's the compiler's perverse sense of humor -- or that he just liked the song a hell of a lot and felt it should have been a chartbuster on both lists. Ah, the beauty of independent labels. ~ Thom Jurek

Hard To Find 45's on CD, Vol. 8: 70's Pop Classics buy CD music 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
