I wouldn't and didn't buy this
I would not purchase this album if you are looking for original hits. Most of the songs are definitely remakes. Red River Rock and 26 Miles sound like the originals. A few other songs, namely Whispering Bells, Western Movies, and My Heart Is an Open Book might be originals, but it is hard to confirm just by listening to a 30 second snippet. The rest are obviously not the ones I used to listen to on the AM oldies channel.
50's Rock n' Roll Whole Lot of Shakin'
I also was disappointed at the lack of that 'sound' that made you just love each of these songs. It's missing because they are not done by the original artists. Only those that lived through and loved these songs would buy them so why do remakes? Itunes get a clue, all the oldies are disappointing and the reviewers do not like the remix. So could you please get the originals? Thanks for trying, smile, smile.
50's Rock 'n Roll - Whole Lot of Shakin'
I give this cd a one star rating. I also want to add my $.2 and disagree with OldiesFan. The selections on this cd are remakes, plain and simple. Just listen to all of them very carefully, and if you know your oldies, it will be very clear that these are NOT the originals. Sea Cruise, Willie and the Hand Jive, Do You Wanna Dance, Western Movies, all them they are remakes. Don't waste you're money and don't listen to OldiesFan. He or she doesn't know what the originals sound like.
