Original mixes, great fidelity

Absolutely the original mixes you heard on the radio when they were hits. Great memories. Great stuff.

Don't worry, these are the originals

In contrast to most of the Tommy Roe listings on I-Tunes, these are the originals. Thank you very much I -Tunes.

In the early 60s Tommy Roe sounded like Buddy Holly and toured with the then emerging Beatles in England. In the late 60s he came back with a couple of very good bubble gum hits. These are the best bets for cherry pickers--"Dizzy" and "Sweat Pea." I can still remember when "Jam Up and Jelly Tight", another late 60s bubble gum hit, was released and how it seemed mildly scandalous to my seventh grade friends. Well, even now it's a bit crude, in a ham-handed, adolescent sorta way. Possibly download-worthy as a social document and pretty catchy song.

All in all this is not great music, but so what -- those of us of a certain age will benefit by having a couple of these in our iTunes libraries.
