This is the Very Best

This is a great album. I had it on cassette years ago and when I saw it available on itunes I couldn't pass it up for my ipod. If you have always loved this Liverpool group, this is the only thing you need. It has all their best songs in one place. In 1964, whenever the Beatles were asked who their favorite group was and who they recommend, they always said the Rolling Stones and the Searchers. Considering the origin, that's high praise indeed.

This is a great band and the problem is they are usually overlooked because of the huge success of The Beatles. Give them a listen; you won't be disappointed.

I have The Searchers Rhino cd which is in stereo. Sound quality wise, this one is in the conversation. If you can't get the Rhino cd, I highly recommend this one. Sometimes mono is as good as or better than stereo. Back in the 60's, we were pretty much limited to AM radio, one speaker in the dash sound. This is very clean mono.
