Customer Reviews

Interesting

It's good to know where these songs originate from. I'm tired of uninformed people saying that their newly-formed bands came up with their #1 hit song all by themselves when it's just a version of the original.

Misleading

It's a good thing that the songs on this album are available to be purchased individually, because there are a few that are rare gems that are acutally the first versions of the songs (such as Hanky Panky by the Raindrops, You Were On My Mind by Ian & Sylvia, California Sun by Joe Jones, Wild Thing by the Wild Ones) but others are not and others are songs that were never made famous by anyone. If you are interested in history, do a little research before you buy one of these songs believing them to be the original recorded versions of the songs.

Misattribution(s)?

Sloppy documentation on this collection. The version of 'Tainted Love' is misattriubted to Martha Reeves when in fact that is Gloria Jones, the originator of the song. I bought this song a year ago and it was properly attributed to Gloria Jones, but some intern apparently got into the iTunes database and screwed things up. I would be very wary.
