Still the definitive Crystals retrospective nearly a decade after its release, ABKCO's The Best of the Crystals gathers their most beloved singles, including "Uptown," "He's a Rebel," "Da Doo Ron," and "Then He Kissed Me"; the infamous withdrawn single "He Hit Me (It Felt Like a Kiss)"; and relatively obscure songs such as "What a Nice Way to Turn 17," "Look in My Eyes," and "I Wonder." The way the collection presents the Crystals' work in more or less chronological order helps trace the group's development and also allows somewhat lesser-known songs like "Heartbreaker," "Girls Can Tell," and "Another Country — Another World" more equal footing among the group's classic tracks. Though the He's a Rebel bootleg offers an even more complete collection of the group's output, The Best of the Crystals remains the best legitimate retrospective of their pioneering work.
iTunes Rip Off
Once again, iTunes tries to dupe it's customers with cheap, inept re-recordings of the original songs. These are awful. Don't waste your money. Shame on you Apple!
This Is NOT It
nope dont like it
Public Service Announcement
After previewing a few of the songs I can say with confidence these are not the original recordings.
When shopping for music on iTunes, always preview before you purchase: especially where oldies of the 50's and 60's are concerned and also especially if K-Tel is the label. There are many re-recordings and not all of them are properly labeled (though some are).
Again I say, these are not the original recordings.
Two things should be noted here:
1. Apple is not a record label, but rather a re-seller. In order for any particular music to be available on iTunes, the label has to provide Apple with the files and the liscense to sell them.
2. The Crystals original music is not generally available. To make it available would likely require intervention from producer Phil Spector and he is currently serving time in prison for 2nd degree murder.
If you're looking for the original Crystals recordings, I suggest eBay or Half Price Books. If anybody has a better idea please post it here because I would really like to find this music.
