Customer Reviews

Great sound quality, but only 3 of his 11 hits.

Though I never knew or heard of this artist before, I do like this kind of music, with the beautiful backing choral vocals. I’d describe him as the Bobby Vinton type. There are four albums here I was considering:

1. ‘Ronnie Dove Greatest Hits’ contains all 11 of his Billboard Top 40 hits, Plus 5 extras. However, the quality is rather scratchy, obviously recorded from the vinyl records. Price $5.99

2. ‘The Best of Ronnie Dove’ has 30 tracks and much great quality sound. It includes 10 of the 11 hits, missing is ‘A Little Bit of Heaven’. Price $9.99

3. ‘Ronnie Dove 30 Blasts From the Past’ Like number 2, this also contains 30 tracks. The sound quality is great. But this set has only 3 of his 11 hit songs. Price $9.99

4. ‘Ronnie Dove The Ultimate Collection’ has a whopping 60 tracks with great sound quality. It includes all 11 hits. Price $19.99

I immediately eliminated number 1 due to the poor sound quality. I then eliminated number 3 with only 3 hit songs. So, it’s betweeen number 2 and number 4. The question here becomes ‘Is it worth paying $10 extra for 60 tracks just to get all 11 hit songs, or can I settle for 10 hits from the 30 track set?’

And the winner is…. Number 2, ‘The Best of Ronnie Dove’. I can always purchase ‘A Little Bit of Heaven’ as a single track from the 60 track set.

Marred by horrible sound…...

This collection contains the chestnut penned by Neil Diamond in his Bang years, "Back From Baltimore", which is a GREAT song marred by horrible sound on this collection. Too bad. A nice Neil Diamond song that I don't believe he ever recorded himself. Check it out!

A handsome crooner with a strong, flexible tenor voice that was well-suited to pop or country tunes, Ronnie Dove was born in Herndon, Virginia, where he first developed a love for singing as a member of his high school's glee club, but the pubs of Baltimore were his performance training ground. After a stint in the Coast Guard, he formed Ronnie Dove & the Belltones, and the group gigged throughout Baltimore and the East Coast for the next four years. In 1959, the band cut the single "Lover Boy"...
