3-0 out of 5 stars Forget the Beatles, Leslie Gore has the best song on here
Well, for all of you who have been complaining that these hit collections of Sixties music are substandard because they never include anything from the rock groups on the A list like the Beatles, the Stones and the Who, this second volume in the "45's On CD" series actually has a track by the Beatles! Of course, it is "Ain't She Sweet," which, if memory serves, was not a Top 10 hit for the Fab Four. There are at least four songs better than that on this album, including Roger Miller's "King of the Road" and "Wooly Bully" by Sam the Sham & the Pharaohs (both of which I already have) and Lesley Gore's "You Don't Own Me" and "You Were on My Mind" by We Five (which I needed). The price on this is pretty good and half the songs are decent, which offsets the fact there are just ten tracks. But you have to lose a star for the lame Beatles track.

3-0 out of 5 stars Don't overextend your expectations -- enjoy!
This is not The Moody Blues, or Yes. It isn't The Who's "Tommy" or Tull's "Aqualung". It is just a handful of random songs from the '60's. If that is what you seek, or you want to fill some gaps in your collection, or you just cannot find the Wee-Five's greatest hits, this is fine.

Indeed, there is no theme, no nexus between the songs. They are unrelated, save the fact that they all seemed to get lots of airplay back in the day. Where else might one find "You Don't Own Me", or "You Were On My Mind"? For that reason these '45's on CD are nice collections.

My only beef remains that there is a lot of empty space in these discs. They could put twice as many songs on one.

2-0 out of 5 stars Another corporate-created random collection of '60s tunes
Why on Earth would anyone think that this is supposed to be aBeatles compilation? The title is pretty clear, I think: "45'son CD -- 1964-1965." That covers a pretty wide girth.

This is basically another one of your '60s collections that have been thrown together without much thought as to theme. It jumps willy-nilly from country (Roger Miller's "King of the Road"), to sappy ballads ("You've Got Your Troubles"), to the standard frat-house stompers ("Wooly Bully"), to folk-rock ("You Were On My Mind") to surf ("Little Honda"). None of these tunes really work together. It's your standard cut-and-paste collection of '60s tunes.

A mediocre collection at best. END

1-0 out of 5 stars Beatles fans - FORGET IT.
Think this is a Beatles CD collection of 45's - WRONG.

It's just an ordinary compilation CD (Various Artists, The Beatles have ONE track called 'My Bonnie' - From Hamburg Days).

As a compilation it holds no surprises and am sure that there are better ones to be found.

4-0 out of 5 stars A rather offbeat collection of early sixties hit
The price on these "45s On CD" albums is certainly right.Then it just becomes a question of whether or not you can find enough songs you are missing from your music library to make it worth the trouble.If you are going through the volumes in numerical order this is the best one yet with a nice trio of wacky songs with "Li'l Red Riding Hood," "Winchester Cathedral" and "Wild Thing" (Funny; I had never seen the middle one on a hit collection and this makes two in one week).The Righteous Brothers offer up one of their big hits and you can rarely go wrong when Dusty Springfield sings a song.Over half the songs on this collection are decent, which makes it above average even if it is only ten tracks.

3-0 out of 5 stars Fine as far as it goes.
Let's face it, unless you burn your own CD's, these compilations will never fit like a custom made suit.However, they are great for finding songs that just are not out there anywhere else (how many albums did TheWalker Brothers record?How many made it onto disc?)."45's onCD" is a good way to locate otherwise obscure cuts.

This type ofrecording is why we have needed Amazon.com for so long.It is so mucheasier than searching endlessly through cut-out bins at the local recordstore, particularly when you are looking for a specificcut.

"Lightning Strikes" and, "The Sun Ain't Gonna ShineAnymore" were great songs, and I guess while neither Christie or theBrothers were technically one hit wonders, these were their best, and canbe hard to find.Although the Righteous Brothers and Dusty Sringfield haveformidable collections of work, it is nice to see them included here withtwo solid hits, (even though neither was their respective biggestsellers).

You have to take the obscure with the great and near great,though.Life without ever hearing "Little Red Riding Hood" orthe abysmal "Winchester Cathedral" would be just fine by me. Nonetheless, I rated this just three stars not for the poorer selections,but because almost twice as much music could fit on one of these tinylittle discs.

5-0 out of 5 stars All Original Artists and Songs
The heading says it all. It's not a cheap rip-off disc. I have found all Rebound Records compilation discs to be good quality at a reasonable price. If you like the songs, buy it. A must for the 60's collector filling ingaps in the catalog. Happy tunage! ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Thanks Bomp
Since most of these artist's LP's are out of print, it's nice to have a least one song by all these great overlooked bands. It's a shame that only big record company bands/artists are allowed to be heard on radio. If half these Bomp bands/artists had the big budgets behind them to promote them and keep them working and fed, we would have a ton of classic records flooding our record stores. To bad Greg Shaw (founder of Bomp) wasn't a very rich eccentric with and endless stream of cash to keep Bomp artist in the forefront of popular music. I'd much rather hear The Things and Miracle Workers new records every year (if they were able to afford to keep recording I'm sure there would be new releases from them ) than have to deal with new boring trends and lame bands to go with these boring trends every few years. The Things 'Everytime' still makes me wish they were still around making records. A GREAT band on a great compilation. Thanks Bomp!!

5-0 out of 5 stars Bomp keeps rock and roll alive
Greg Shaw has pretty much kept the rock and roll flame alive with his Bomp label. This 2CD set is a great overview of the labels history. Power pop,gagare, psych-noise, its all here. Listening to this, you will discover what the essence of Rock and Roll is. Its charming, innocent, fun, simple yet complex. Hell, this is my favorite compilation after the great Nuggets album that Elektra put out in the 70's. In fadct most of these groups are highly influenced by that release. I say buy it!!! ...

4-0 out of 5 stars Very good
It had been many years since I heard "Slippin Away" until I got this CD. It has the long versions of Total Eclipse of the Heart (so rare) and Run Runaway. The second disc is my favorite by far, but I like to just have the first one running while I putter around the house. puts me back in time. I have 2 other 80's Cd's with the German version of 99 Luftballoons on them & was very glad to get the English version on here.

3-0 out of 5 stars An intriguing mixture
of great songs and songs that really suck. It's hard to imagine anyone who likes anything from the 80's that won'f find something to love and hate here.

3-0 out of 5 stars Be careful -- 99 Luftballoons on here is the English version
I bought this (not from Amazon) thinking the version of 99 Luftballoons on here was the German version, but it turned out to be the English version. Buyer Beware.

5-0 out of 5 stars Finally, I am here
There is no "suprise song" neither good means nor bad means. One exception was "You're A Friend Of Mine" which gave me a good suprise. I searhed and searched through many on-line shop,and finally found this which satisfied me. Do you wanna do another search by yourself? I won't stop you, but I think you will end up in here. ...

1-0 out of 5 stars Self-indulgent garbage
I tried to listen to this several times, but it is BORING! The songs all sound as if they are slight variations of the same theme: "Look how fast I can play". No interesting ideas, just fast, repeated riffs. There are so many talented guitar players out there, I can't imagine why anyone would want to waste their time listening to this cd. The previous reviewers thought it was good - maybe to a pre-pubescent kid with a brand new electric guitar, but to any with even slightly mature taste, this offers nothing but a headache.

5-0 out of 5 stars Top-notch guitar playing.
Well, everyone is correct by saying this album is AMAZING, but I just wanted to make a little side comment. I saw the release date here at Amazon, and it says 1998... well, that's the "commercial" release date, because this album was recorded and "released" actually in 1993 or 1994, and it was sent as a gift to suscribers of a guitar magazine, I forgot which one. I first heard this album in 1994 and was blown away by it. By the way, on the first song, Reb Beach plays all instruments if I'm not mistaken.

5-0 out of 5 stars Amazing Guitar Album
This album rules. There are so many great guitar players on it. It's also cool because whoever was on it had total creative freedom, so they could play however they wanted to. This album really has everything from metal to funk to blues.

Former Winger, current Dokken guitar player Reb Beach opens the album with Black Magic. This song is pure metal, and Reb's smokin'. This is my favorite song on the album. Richie Sambora of Bon Jovi is next performing Mr. Sambo. It also features Bon Jovi drummer Tico Torres and bass player Hugh McDonald. It is another metal song. It really shows Richie's talent. Next up is Yngwie Malmsteen. Every serious guitar player knows he's amazing so there's no need for me to elaborate on this song. Let me just say that you won't be disappointed. Next up is Paul Gilbert of Racer X and Mr. Big. His playing is amazing. The song I Understand Completely is a primarily acoustic but is filled with sound effects and electric overtones. At the end of the song he comes in full electric. Paul Gilbert's great because he plays with amazing speed and precision. Zakk Wylde does something totally unexpected for his song, Farm Fiddlin'. Being Ozzy's former guitar player and fromntman for the ultra heavy Black Label Society you expect a country intro for his song on this album but that's exactly what you get. He starts off with a lightning speed country piece before kicking into the metal style that he's known for. He like pretty much everyone else on the album plays with amazing speed. This song is also great because it shows all of his influences. In the middle of the song it goes into this whole blues piece before kicking back into metal which ends the song. Next up is Nuno Bettancourt former Extreme guitar player. His song Bumble Bee (Crash Landing) is excellent. He is an amazing guitar player. His playing on this song is no exception. It is however very short. Alex Skolnick is up next. He is the former guitar player in Testament and Savatage. He is also a very underrated guitar player. On Filet of Soul he serves up a very funky type song. It also features Les Claypool of Primus on bass. He is amazing as usual. The middle of the song slows down to display Alex's style. It also shows what a great guitarist he really is. Next up is former Poison current Mr. Big guitarist Richie Kotzen. His song Chype Fluxx shows his talent as a musician because he played all of the instruments on it. The song is successful in showing his guitar playing skill as well as his bass playing which sounds pretty decent. Next up is bluesman Albert Collins. His song "Blues for Stevie" is a tribute to the late master Stevie Ray Vaughan. It features amazing blues playing in the style of Stevie. Next up is former Allman Brothers Band guitar player current Gov't Mule frontman Warren Haynes and Allman Brothers guitar player Dickey Betts. The song Willie and Poor Bob is very different, if I had to describe it I'd say it was country blues. It features impressive slide and harmonica work. Next up is David Bowie's sidekick Reeves Gabrels. His song "Why Do I Feel Like I'm Bleeding" is an excellent song. It shows that he can play fast as well as slow. The song is very hard to describe. There is a drum machine that starts it off then some slow guitar. It doesn't kick in to the fast playing until about the midlle of the song. This album is great, but I only recommend this to guitar players or serious fans of guitar playing. If you like this album I also have a few suggestions such as Joe Satriani-Crystal Planet, Dokken-Erase the Slate, Back for the Attack, Extreme-Pornograffiti, Yngwie Malmsteen-Rising Force,Trilogy, Ozzy-No Rest for the Wicked, Racer X-Street Lethal, and Steve Vai-Passion and Warfare, Fire Garden, The Ultra Zone, Alien Love Secrets.

5-0 out of 5 stars It's GOOD to get outside the box!
Richie Samoboa, Dickey Betts, Zach Wylde, Richie Kotzen, Nuno Bettencourt, and others! Yes, you have to have grown up in the late 80's to know these people, but it's a really fun CD.

The theme is to let a bunch of well known guitar heroes compose songs and perform them outside of the normal music confines of their normal band. The creativity here is fantastic and the types of "guitar music" is greatly varied giving it a constant interest (vs. say hearing all of a Satriani CD, which is great music, but can sound the same).

This is a perfect CD to mix in with a CD/r! They are all cool songs and can be used to spice up some of your usuall music themes.

I give it 5 stars for the creativity and fun/cool songs that developed. I give it a 3.8 as far as CD's I listen to consistently.

5-0 out of 5 stars This deserves more than five stars!
Unbelievable! This is one of my cds that I'm surprised isn't worn out. If I had the cassette, it would have been in a week. I love all the songs on this cd, but Zakk Wylde's "Farm Fiddlin'," in my opinion, is one of the best songs ever written by anyone in the history of life on this planet! It is absolutely perfect. As a whole, so is this cd. If you're into guitar music, then you will kick yourself until the day you die if you don't buy this. Then after you're dead, your friends will kick your body. I kid you not. ... Read more

Should Epic Records be blamed or thanked for splitting this massive collection into separate segments for the tie-die set and the moshing crowd? Isn't Woodstock about merging musical styles into one love fest? Well, here we have the red disc, which offers a relentless attack from metal- and punk-influenced bands such as Offspring, Lit, and Limp Bizkit. The opening track is a huge, roaring version of Korn's "Blind," and the disc closes with warnings about the fire that ended the festival, as the Red Hot Chili Peppers burst into Jimi Hendrix's "Fire." Rage Against the Machine's "Bulls on Parade," Buckcherry's AC/DC-influenced "Lit Up," Megadeth's "A Secret Place," and Live's soaring "I Alone" are notable moments, while Sevendust and Godsmack merely sound like early '90s retreads. Metallica's "Creeping Death" shows why they succeed where others fail, and Bush's "Everything Zen" should feel out of place here, but doesn't. The blue disc serves up a kinder, gentler beat with Dave Matthews opening up with "Tripping Billies," followed by the somewhat tired sounds of the Brian Setzer Orchestra. Things get a little perkier with Jewel's surprisingly powerful "Down So Long." Everclear shakes up the audience with their muscular and catchy brand of alt rock. Elvis Costello makes "Alison" sound new and heartfelt, G. Love & Special Sauce remind us how refreshing it was when "Cold Beverage" was first served, and the Chemical Brothers bring their electronic sound to life on "Block Rockin' Beat." Roots' undulant "Adrenaline" has a bite, and Boston's Guster prove that the hype about this acoustic-based outfit's live shows is true. Perfunctory performances by Sheryl Crow, Rusted Root, and Bruce Hornsby fill in the gaps. --Lorry Fleming ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Are... you... READY?!?!?!?
Ahh... woodstock! Three days of love... well, for the most part. I've heard some pretty bad things about what went on at this concert. In my personal opinion, rape is the lowest form of activity that anyone could participate in and anyone who rapes another person deserves to BURN IN HELL. Now, having said that, I will now review the music. They (who? you may ask... THEM, DAMMIT! LOL) decided to release this as a 2 disc set... I think that's a pretty groovy idea because the musical styles on the two cd's are very different. On to the review... now I can't review EVERY track on each CD but I'll hit on (in my opinion) the high notes..

DISC ONE: THE RED DISC: Alrighttt..... ROCK N ROLL, BAYBEEE!! *throws up some metal* Talk about "The Hard and The Heavy". I was completely blown away by this disc! I actually hadn't heard of half the artists on this cd until I bought it... but I took a chance and boy am I glad I did! The red disc delivers over an hour of in your face rock and roll. Sure, these weren't the ABSOLUTE BEST songs sung at woodstock? lol But anyway, it all pretty much rocks and even though I hadn't heard of a lot of the musicians when I first got this cd, I sat there and listened to and enjoyed the whole thing. If you're a fan of heavier rock music, then the red disc is for you! But.... there is another... skywalker.. oops.. no, wait... there is another... disc. LOL

DISC TWO: THE BLUE DISC: Ahh the blue disc. What a break from all the hard stuff on the red disc! If you like the softer side of music, then this disc is the one for you! I actually bought the whole woodstock 99 album because a friend of mine brought the blue disc to school one day and I listened to it. I really liked it, even though I didn't know who a lot of the people on it were. It's just good music and I can respect that. There isn't a bad song on here.

STANDOUT CUTS: THE RED DISC

Korn-Blind, The Offspring-The Kids Aren't Alright, Kid Rock-Bawitdaba, RATM-Bulls On Parade (personal fave), Godsmack-stay away, Red Hot Chilli Peppers-Fire (Hendrix, baybeeee)

STANDOUT CUTS: THE BLUE DISC:

Dave Matthews Band-Tripping Billies, Everlast-Ends, Everclear-Santa Monica(Watch The World Die), The Roots-Adrenaline (My second fave from this disc), Elvis Costello-Alison (Personal fave)

OVERALL THOUGHTS: Great collection. At best, it's great and at worst, it's good. The mastering is clear on all tracks except the Korn song. Any fan of music should own this cd and try to forget about the bad stuff that happened at the concert.

2-0 out of 5 stars First CD-bad, second CD-ok
When you get right down to it, Woodstock 99 was a complete disaster. It was run by a bunch of guys trying to get as much money as possible in a three-day period. At least half of the acts were angry white boy alt-metal acts whose shows tend to get a little violent. This goes against everything the original Woodstock (and even Woodstock 94) stood for. The riots (which could possibly be explained by the outrageous prices of water and other necessities) and rapes (absolutely no excuse) are evidence of this. The first disc is full of angry 14-year old white boy rap/metal acts. How anyone could call this music is beyond my capacity. The exceptions are Live, Chili Peppers, and maybe Metallica, which all show some degree of talent. Creed (although I'm not a fan at all) delivers a worthy performance of Roadhouse Blues. The second disc is a little better, comprised of those acts that carry on the Woodstock tradition. Dave Matthews, Brian Setzer, Everclear, Elvis Costello, Rusted Root, and Bruce Hornsby all deliver excellent performances (the reasons I bought this damn thing). The others are just ok, for the most part. Definitely listenable, unlike the garbage on the first disc. This should have been sold as two separate CD's, because the way it is now, everyone will love one disc and hate the other. I want half of my money back, and youcan keep the damn red CD.

4-0 out of 5 stars disc one rlz!
well....woodstock is consider as one of the biggest music festival ever beside rock in rio which also hold hundreds thousand of crowd and i think woodstock are famous for the rock show
so the disc one is fill up with that
the second disc (which is worth buying) i never like it, it has band like chemical brother,jewel and stuff like that
the only crap thing on disc one is DMX,its a stupid rap just like 50 cents, put a simple music beat and mumbling something unclear, well let's forget about that.metallica put strong performance with creeping death(they still had alot of energy), korn songs is really fit as an opening track "are you ready!!" RHCP creed and bush are ALL GOOD alternative band(creed is a bit boring), limp bizkit(i dont like this band and i dont care with this band) , megadeth the only heavy metal band beside metallica also having great performance with a secret place(actually they had a bunch of heavy songs but they didnt play it at woodstock)
i had no command on buckcherry

4-0 out of 5 stars i got a secret for you
Woodstock is a pretty much big festival and it was obvious that Megadeth made it big with its "a secret place" song...Megadeth rules the world...

4-0 out of 5 stars Red cd's good, Blue cd's.... ok
This is the closest you can get to re-living Woodstock 99 without all the fires, riots, rapes, & overflowing toilets.

The Red disc is pretty good- It has great live songs from KoRn, Kid Rock, Rage, Offspring, Lit, Megadeth, Metallica, Live, Chili Peppers, Creed, Bush, Sevendust, & Godsmack. The Limp Bizkit song on here is not that great- I'm not a big fan of them or anything, but still, Show Me What You Got? If you were gonna put one of their fewer good songs on there put Break Stuff on! I skip over Buckcherry & DMX cause I hate them- Buckcherry just plain old sucks, and my god, they had to waste that track with an awful rapper like DMX- If you're gonna put a rapper on, two words- ICE CUBE! The interlude is just some guy saying "Ok, that fire really is a problem, we need to let the firemen get through"- what a waste of space- We all watched the news, we all heard about the little fire incident, no need to waste a track for something like that.

Now, as for the Blue Disc, there's a pretty interesting variety of music on here- Dave Matthews, Brian Setzer, Bruce Hornsby, Guster, Everlast, Everclear, Jamiroquai, G Love, Rusted Root, Alanis Morisette. If you have diverse taste you'll enjoy it. I said the Blue disc was "....ok" because I noticed that Wycleaf insn't on it! But nooo, they had to put Elvis Costello on! I also would've loved to see a Counting Crows song on there- They're a LOT better than Our Lady Peace! And what's up with EVERCLEAR on the blue disc?! They're pretty heavy- they should've been on the red cd instead of that stupid interlude!

Woodstock 99 had its fair share of good bands & bad bands- Even almost 3 years after the event I still ask this one question: HOW THE HELL DID SUGAR RAY GET ON THAT STAGE? and who the hell got INSANE CLOWN POSSEE in??

So in conclusion, if you only like loud heavy stuff, get the Red cd. If you like soft stuff, get the Blue cd. If you have extremely diverse taste and like both loud & soft(like me), get the 2-disc set. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Perfection
I bought this collection only because of Patti Smith's sultry, sad version of "Don't Smoke in Bed" followed by an airy, beautiful Sinéad O'Connor rendition of "Mna Na H Eireann" (Women of Ireland.) Not being a fan of the other artists on the CD, I thought it would be one of those CDs I pulled out rarely only to hear the songs for which I bought it. How mistaken I was. One day I decided to listen to the CD in its entirety, and I was immediately swept up in the catchy Salt'N'Pepa title track, then equally impressed with Annie Lennox's rendition of the Sugarcubes' "Mama." Of course, being a Serge Gainsbourg fan, I found Luscious Jackson's interpretation of his provocative "69 Année Érotique" to be nothing short of brilliant. Melissa Etheridge delivers a very convincing and even painful (in that you feel her pain) "Weakness in Me"... the whole CD flows with a kind of continuity rarely found on compilation CDs, this despite the varying types of music represented.

This largely ignored and underhyped collection is definitely worth purchasing...

4-0 out of 5 stars sisters are doing it for themselves!
pre-dating lilith fair, this collection of women who rock was the overlooked album of 1995. though the title track single (which exhibits salt-n-pepa at their "women-rule-men-stink" best) made a small splash, listeners were unsure from whence it came. at any rate, the collection of talent, and the sheer innovation of the material and pairings makes _ain't nuthin' but a she thing_ a must-own for anybody who likes female musicians. annie lennox is infallable, as always, on "mama" and melissa etheridge does joan armatrading tearfully proud on "the weakness in me". the coupling of vanessa williams and me'shell ndegeocello on "open your eyes" is positively brilliant! ndegeocello's smooth, full-bodied voice plays beautifully with williams' silky alto. and queen latifah on "hard times"!!! who woulda thunk it? shortly following the release of _she thing_, there were rumours that latifah was going to release an album of vocals; of course, this rumour proved to be false when, three years later, she dropped _order in the court_, filled with some of her hardest-hitting rap ever. but thousands of fans are probably hopefully awaiting that fabled album, based on her performance on "hard times". ...

5-0 out of 5 stars Great cuts, good cause
I'm biased because I produced this double-disc compilation, but since no one else has yet reviewed it, I think I can fairly step outside the project and say that it has great diversity, some fascinating takes on Phish's material (some more comfortable, others more exploratory), and flows nicely as something you can listen to from start to finish. Plus, all the net proceeds go to music education for children, making it a wonderful gift on both ends! ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best stuff around
This Original Carolina Beach Music CD is one of the best around. I have purchased most of the 10 CDs in this series and they are all good, but this is probably my favorite. It is loaded with 3 really good Beach Music medleys. The Soul Medley by the Fabulous Kays is an all time great that also features Archie Bell. A super 9 song medley produced very well and gets you into that Beach Music party spirit. The tracks by Steve Jarell and the Sons of the Beach are good to hear again, from "I've Still Got Sand In My Shoes" to "Carolina Man". Pure Beach Music at its best. This is also a great value... I recommend it. The Bill Deal and The Rondells cuts will remind you once again that Beach Music can be the new Alternative Music for those of us who appreciate fun music. ... Read more

4-0 out of 5 stars Turns Your CD Player Into a Jukebox
Judging from the title, I suppose this CD is designed to turn your home stereo into a jukebox. And in its own way it does -- that is, if you like smatterings of British Invasion, 50s rockabilly, 60s pop and a little vintage soul in your party.

It's a nice mix: the very best from Brits like the Kinks, Spencer Davis (with a young Steve Winwood doing the wailing), the Zombies and the Troggs. "Pretty Flamingo" is a decent left-field choice from Manfred Mann, but the Cliff Bennett version of the Beatles' "Got To Get You Into My Life" is horrid, maybe the only dud here.

It's also hard to quibble with most of the rest: "Heard It Through the Grapevine" by Marvin Gaye is just about the best Motown classic of the '60s, while "Jimmy Mack" and "Soothe Me" are nice surprises from Martha and the Vandellas and Sam and Dave, respectively.

The greasy 50's hits seem weirdly out of place on this mostly '60s vintage set, although "Runaway" and "Be-Bop-A-Lula" are classics, as is Bo Diddley's "Who Do You Love?". So are the rock instrumentals "Rumble" and "Rebel Rouser."

Perhaps the only down side to this CD is its length: it should'a been longer, much longer. And -- now this is purely a regional complaint -- no jukebox should be without a selection from Hank Williams, Patsy Cline or George Jones. It would have been tough to fit in the format, but there's enough great stuff here so you won't really notice.

Bottom line: despite the quibbles, you can dance to this from start to end, even without beer. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars MUST HAVE CD
This CD is great for everybody and especially for DJ's. It's an awesome dance CD. It has some of the old favorites remixed into dance songs that you won't find anywhere else. I got this CD for "Let Your Love Flow" and it turns out that I like five more songs(1,2,4,5, and 10)that are just as great. I can't wait until they make the next one.

4-0 out of 5 stars Summer Party Fun
I bought this cd on a whim (I liked the price!). I'm glad I did. All the songs are by the original artists. I played the cd at my last B.B.Q. party. It worked well. You can let the whole cd play, and everyone is happy. It has little of every thing. The best mix by far on the cd is "Let Your Love Flow". That song alone, is the reason I gave the cd four stars. ...

5-0 out of 5 stars British Invasion Volume Eight Gets Psychedelic
This has been a wonderful series by Rhino. Granted the entire series has been loaded down with filler. These songs may have been hits in England, but mean little to an American audience.The entire series could have been condensed to maybe four or five CDs without the filler.

On the plus side, some of these songs are gems and it is a treat to be exposed to them. It makes you wonder why they weren't hits on this side of the pond. Voume Eight is filled with such music, much of it with a psychedelic leaning.

Among these are Simon Dupree's Kites, Flowers in the Rain by the Move and My White Bicycle by Tomorrow. I'm proud to add these songs to my sixties collection. I cannot say the same for the We are the Moles. What was Rhino thinking?

The rest of the volume is made up of familiar tunes from the radio. Pictures of Matchstick Men is a favorite of mine and is a highlight of the CD and keeping in the Psychedelic spirit. The radio version of Cream's Sunshine of your Love also fits in nicely.

Two cuts by Procol Harum are here - Conquistador and Whiter Shade of Pale. You may recall the Harum brought full orchestras to rock along with the Moody Blues. The Blues are represented here also with their signature song Nights in White Satin.

Eric Burden is featured with his latter day Animals lineup with San Franciscan Nights and When I Was Young. And Love Is All Around by the Troggs is included. It is good to hear after the recent butchering it took in the movie Love Actually.

This volume is a hodge-podge really. Most songs featured have a psycedelic edge, but it is clear the series was winding down and Rhino was throwing all it had left into the later volumes. That being said, this is one of my two or three favorites from the series - and I have them all!

4-0 out of 5 stars All the CDs in this series are good.
I have six of the CDs in the British Invasion series and all are very good. The only thing keeping the CDs from a 5 star rating is each CD has a few "bonus tracks" (maybe songs not included on an earlier cassette release) that I could have lived without (We are the Moles??), but some are interesting.

4-0 out of 5 stars A great hits collection
An excellent shortcut to collecting hits from the 60's. Sound quality is quite good. Can't believe nobody has reviewed this previously. Generaly you can make purchases of Rhino Records productions with confidence. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars Best Oldies of All Time ! ! Great Music ! !
Art Laobe's "60 Killer Oldies" is a 4 CD collection of some of the greatest music of all time.

One of the CD's is entitled, "Memories of El Monte: The roots of L.A.'s Rock and Roll." The first song on that CD is "Memories of El Monte." Here are just a few of the words to that song:

If they only had those dances again,
I'd know where to find you and all my old friends...

Earth angel, earth angel will you be mine at El Monte...

If we could go back to
The days of the past,

I'd show you a love
A love that would last.

O I remember those wonderful
Dances in El Monte.
In El Monte.

I grew up in the San Bernardino area and all my friends used to go to those dances at the American Legion Hall in El Monte during the 1960's. I never did get to go to any of the dances in El Monte, but had always wanted to. I always danced at the National Guard Armory in Riverside, the VFW Hall in Rialto, or the Swing Auditorium in San Bernardino or the Kaiser Dome.

All of the songs on these CDs invoke emotions in me that bring both laughter and tears and they always give me a longing for the "Good O' Days." Now day it seems as though the only way to go to a dance is to go to a bar. Back then, there were dances everywhere. Bar hopping isn't my style, but I miss those old dances including the ones in peoples garages or living rooms.

Art Laboe used to be a DJ on KRLA from Pasadena. KRLA and XPRS were my two favorite radio stations. I don't even know if KRLA even exists any more since I no longer live in the Southern California area.

Anyway, the songs on these CDs remind me of the dances, the radio, my first boy friend, my first love, my marriage, my first child, and my youth. O to be young and in love again!

All of the songs are good and it's difficult to choose a single favorite, but among my many favorites are "Angel Baby," "Daddy's Home," "Dedicated To The One I Love," "Together," "Baby I'm For Real," "Natural High," "10 Commandments of Love," "I'm Your Puppet," "Confessin' A Feeling," "In The Still of The Night, and "Those Oldies But Goodies Remind Me of You." But really, I like all of the songs on this CD collection.

I give this set of CDs five stars plus plus *****++.

Simply the best ! ! !

5-0 out of 5 stars Had them on Cassette, way back when...need to get the CD's!!
Hello....Back about 7 years ago, I got my dream car, a fire red '64 Impala. I bought all of Art's cassette that were available at the time, a must have to go along with my beautiful dream car and cruisin the streets of the Bay Area.

In the course of the last 7 years, they have either gotten worn out or just lost. I love all of these songs and reminds me of listening to my moms old record player, running around and singing songs with my brush as a microphone.

A must-have for any helpless romantic like myself.

Enjoy!!

5-0 out of 5 stars BEST OLDIES EVER
THIS CD WAS THE BEST THAT I EVER BOUGHT. IT REMINDED ME OF ALL THE GOOD TIMES I HAD AND EVEN THE BAD ONES,BUT I STILL LOVED IT. EVERYBODY SHOULD GO OUT AND BUT THIS CD IMMEDIATLY IT IS SUCH A GOOD PRICE FOR QUALITY MUSIC.

The songs on all 4 cds are great, they bring back alot of memories. I listen to them every morning while getting ready for work and while driving home. I even listen to them on the weekends when doing my housework and my cooking. I just love them!

5-0 out of 5 stars Good for your attitude.
Music doesn't just have an effect on you WHILE you're listening; those words and melodies keep running around in your head. To have the best attitude, it helps to have positive, life-giving, healthy words going through your mind, and this CD does the trick. I am the author of the book, Self-Help Stuff That Works, and I'm an expert on what it takes to keep a good attitude, and this CD, without a doubt, does the trick. As long as you're going to listen to good music, the words might as well lift you up, too!

5-0 out of 5 stars Totally Awesome!!!!! Jump-starts the soul.
This is one the best CD's I have listened to, for the spirit, in a long time. It really gets you jumping and helps to lift the spirits...listen to the words and it is really uplifting....from Elton John's "I'm Still Standing " to Paul Anka"s "My Way". I feel like I could conquer anything that comes my way. ... Read more

5-0 out of 5 stars before the Monster Mash there was monster rock n roll
If you ever wanted more than the 'Monster Mash' then this CD will kick you in the teeth! It has 30 original tracks of monster songs that are pure 50's rock n roll. The cover is a colorful painting of a group of monsters (originally used for a Frank N. Stein & orchestra LP on Power Records 1964) and it comes with a 12 page booklet full of photos of some of the artists. I couldn't believe how great of a collection this is and then the label, BUFFALO BOP RECORDS in Germany released a second CD called Horror Hop with 31 more vintage monster rock n roll! Unbelievably great. $19 is cheap for what you get, 70 minutes of monster songs most of which were recorded before the Monster Mash. The only regret you'll have if you buy this CD is that you didn't get the companion CD, Horror Hop. Track Listing: ROCKIN' IN THE GRAVEYARD - Jackie Morningstar... WERE WOLF - Carl Bonafede... CAVEMAN HOP - Jerry Coulston... THE CAT - Rod Willis... MIDNIGHT MONSTERS HOP - Jack & Jim... NIGHTMARE - Scottie Stuart... GRAVEYARD - Leroy Bowman... THE SKELETON FIGHT - Mack Allen Smith...

I was elated when I first ran across this CD some years ago. It contains songs, I thought, I would never hear again. I used to own many of these songs on vinyl back in the day, many of which are now rare collectables. Of the hundreds of CD's I own, this is still one of my favorites. Sweet Soul is my main music interest and this CD, in my opinion, is one of the sweetest. I encourage all sweet soul aficianados, definitely pick this one up. I gaurantee you will be just as elated.

3-0 out of 5 stars Search the "used" pile for the longer version of this CD.
The CD being sold here is an edited version of a CD that Mercury released some years ago called "45's on CD" Vol. 3. (It bears no resemblance at all to the disc in the current series called number three.) With the exception of "Love is Blue," all of the songs here are on that longer CD. It's worth seeking out if you're missing these songs, which don't appear on this shorter CD:

"Reach Out in the Darkness" by Friend and Lover;
"Summertime Blues" by Blue Cheer;
"Warm San Franciscan Nights" by the Animals;
"Fire" by the Crazy World of Arthur Brown, and
"I Will Always Think About You" by New Colony Six.

The "old" cover shows a Mercury 45 (the New Colony Six song, in fact) morphing into a CD.

So hit the "used" piles at your local store and see if you get lucky, like I did.

5-0 out of 5 stars 45's on cd
Yes I'am looking for song that is other side Na Na Hey Hey Goodbey by Steam it was on a 45 do you have any ideas how I can find this song. If you do plesae email information. Thanks

5-0 out of 5 stars Great For Converters!!
I started 2 1/2 years ago converting my collection of over 200 LPs and over 900 45s to Compact Disc. I've done a lot of picking and choosing, and then I found 45s on CD. What a find! I was able to convert 10 of my 45s at once at one low price! This is a great series of compilation CDs for the serious music collector. Don't let these pass you by.

4-0 out of 5 stars If you find a song or two you want, buy it.
These discs (the whole '45's of CD collection) feature songs that are pretty obscure. For that reason this collection is worthwhile. I have been critical of other discs of this title for being rather stingy with the number of cuts, but I guess that for the six dollar price, it is not too bad.

The value comes in finding a song you seek (or two or three). That is an easy task here. "Na-na, Hey hey" is positively ubiquitous, but "Love is All Around" certainly is not. As of yet, Amazon.com does not sell "Keith's Greatest Hit" for the few folks out there who might want "98.6". "Love Is Blue" and "Sunday Will Never Be the Same" are available elsewhere, but at least here I think the value may be better (I have P. Mauriat's Greatest Hits and the rest of it is weak).

Happily, these are all original versions, and the sound quality is fine. All four of the volumes of '45's on CD might be a great discount value. Still, worth the price. ... Read more
