Another of the "collections" to AVOID. These are NOT the original recordings. JUNK. Seek elsewhere to get the real stuff.

100 classic Rock'n'Roll songs for under $10 !!! ...too good to be true??? YES, because these are NOT the original recordings.

They are from imitation 'as made famous by' artists. They're not bad copies, which is why I gave it 2 stars instead of one, but the album is really misleading because it lists the actual artist names, who did NOT make these recordings. And if you directly compare songs like 'Tutti Frutti' and 'The Lion Sleeps' you can easily tell that these repro's are not nearly as good as the real thing. They should have said 'as made famous by...' because as it is, it smacks of false advertising.

That said, if you don't care about hearing the authentic pieces and you just want to get 100 popular oldies tunes at once for under $10, then there really is no other option. I'm keeping this collection for now but will upgrade the true classics one at a time over time.

I really enjoy listening to this collection. Makes me smile and want to dance! Great price too! So many old hits that I remember my sister playing when I was a little girl.

avoid at all costs
almost all tracks are copies or re-recordings
often the re-recordings do not sound like the original

This is about 66% tunes I wanted and 33% tunes I've never heard of. For the price, it's a good collection to have for sock hops and old car shows and such. Worth the price but be wary of the "re-recorded" tunes, your 30+ audience will notice the difference. (although the Lion Sleeps is a faithful re-recording of the original)

I like and enjoy most of the music from this album, but I am a bit disapointed that many of the selections are not the original version, but are recorded live by the original artists. I dont recall that this was explained when I made the purchase, but overall I really enjoy the music since the majority are the original versions by the original artists or groups.
