4.0 out of 5 stars Shockingly Interesting! March 18, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
It's a bit disturbing when one first tosses "Am Radio" in for a listen-because all but a few of these selections are NEW versions of the genuine hits.(although by the original artists) If you're looking for what you know-"Am Radio" is dreadfully awful...however, if you're a die-hard fan of some of these artists, it is terribly interesting to hear 2005 versions of your favorites!.."Am Radio" is a shamelessly faithful attempt to be true to the original recordings. (Although I'm not sure anyone wants to hear "Magnet And Steel" with a faux Stevie Nicks in the background!)...Let's hope that these artists were paid fairly-my guess is that they are no longer receiving royalties from the original recordings!

To make the appreciation of this set even more challenging, there are no photos or liner notes whatsoever!..On the plus side however, the sound is crisp and clean, and each disc has FOUR extra "hidden" tracks!.."Am Radio" is a poorly packaged, dreadfully amusing update of songs you once loved...It's really bad-but I like it!!!

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrific collection of AM radio's highly varied legacy January 3, 2010
Format:MP3 Music
Rather than picking an artist or label or scene or sound, Legacy's pulled together thirteen original hit recordings that show the range of music that AM radio brought to its listeners. Collected here is New Orleans R&B ("Ya Ya," 1961 and "Working in the Coal Mine," 1966), Dixieland Jazz ("Washington Square," 1963), Easy Listening ("A Fool Never Learns," 1964), Folk Pop and Rock ("We'll Sing in the Sunshine," 1964 and "In the Year 2525," 1969), Garage Punk ("Little Girl," 1966), Soul ("I'm Your Puppet," 1966 and "Cherry Hill Park," 1969), Bubblegum ("Simon Says," 1968), Trad Jazz Vocal ("The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde," 1968), and Vocal Pop ("Worst That Could Happen," 1969).

Even within these individual songs you can often hear more than one genre exerting its influence, such as the steel guitar and horns that provide accents to the superb pop production of Merrilee Rush's "Angel of the Morning." In this day of highly balkanized music channels and individually programmed MP3 playlists, it's hard to imagine such variety inhabiting a single mass-market playlist, but that was part of AM radio's power to attract and keep a broad swath of listeners. Playing this collection will remind you how good record and radio people were at picking and making hits - the winnowing process disenfranchised many, but what got through the sieves, particularly what got to the top of the charts, was often highly memorable.

Legacy's disc clocks in at a slim 35 minutes, but what's here is a terrifically nostalgic spin whose songs stand up to repeated listening forty-plus years later. True, Andy Williams' "A Fool Never Learns" might wear out its welcome before the other tracks, but it's part and parcel of the ebb and flow of 1960s AM radio.
