This budget set of the Fortunes ' best late-'60s/early-'70s output contains "You've Got Your Troubles" (the band's biggest and best single), "Caroline," "Here It Comes Again," and "This Golden Ring," as well as cuts from the band's revival years, but truthfully, a lot of it feels like filler, except for the hits.
I don't know there's a lot of echo on those drums, like ZZ Top did on the six-pack debacle. If this were a Rhino Records collection I would trust it to be legit.
I came to this album because another reviewer said this contained the originals. I listened to
"You've Got Your Troubles" and knew right off he was wrong. This a re-recording. The "problem" with The Fortune's music is that even their re-recording are just plain good music too! Keep looking!
The Great Fortunes
All the selections on this album are re-recorded version. Instrumentation and actually singing do not resemble the originals. I'm not sure why it is hard to find original recordings of this group. I think they were an underrated group. (They did Coca Cola commercials back in the day.)
