2.0 out of 5 stars Not Original Recordings February 20, 2008
By Bobby
Format:Audio CD
I ordered this product based on the customer image provided. I owned the pictured item on LP, and assumed the CD was the same item. It is not. What I received is a "New stereo recording by original artist" - part of the "Legendary Artist series". I was disappointed, especially because the LP pictured contained the long version of Crimson and Clover. The CD I received has a re-recorded short version.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not as advertised September 12, 2009
Format:Audio CD
I love Tommy James and the Shondells and was really looking forward to this CD. What I got however, is a newer version of their hits; not the original cuts. I believe the artists are TJ & S. however it just doesn't sound like the originals. Good price but that doesn't make up for the disappointment.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the original recordings ! misleading. March 9, 2011
Format:Audio CD
These are not the original recordings.
If interested in the original recordings a cd of such can
be easily found on Amazon.
Avoid this unless you like getting ripped off.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not the original songs May 6, 2011
By Cynthia
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In a hurry to finish an order, I didn't check out reviews as I usually do... Big mistake. As others noted, these are RE-recordings, apparently by the original artists, but not the songs as we remember hearing them. Even if you're not very familiar with the original versions, I don't recommend this CD. It goes right into my "Give to Goodwill" box.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not what I wanted December 14, 2010
By Angry
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Wow! It is a surprise how a few little words in the labeling can make a difference! These ARE NOT the original recordings of hit songs. Rather, they are later recordings which sound similar but not quite right. This is a huge disappointment as the originals are so good. Ah well, "buyer beware". Would have saved a few bucks if I read the reviews........

4.0 out of 5 stars Music from the 60s and early 70s July 12, 2010
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This was a fun CD to listen to while going for a long drive. I had forgotten how many top hits Tommy James had during the 60s and 70s. Many fond memories came back while listening to this CD. It was well worth the price.

1.0 out of 5 stars The Best of Tommy James and the Shondells March 22, 2011
By Strider
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Terrible recording. Only recorded one side of the stereo track thus leaving out half the music, like the beautiful acoustic guitar work on Crystal Blue Persuasion. Returned this for refund.

1.0 out of 5 stars Not Quite Right ? March 14, 2011
By R. Ryan
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I grew up with this music and it sounded "not quite right" when I first listened to it, like maybe it had been redone by another group or perhaps redone by an older Tommy James ? Upon further investigation, listening to older vynal, I confirmed and am convinced that the cuts on this CD are not the original 60's releases, far more polished/smoother, lacking the raw "garage band" sounds of the originals. In one way I'm glad my memory is still working but in another I guess I'll need to buy another CD to get the genuine, original, music I remember and was looking to buy. I don't know who did these tunes but they are not the original 60's releases.................. check the Anthology CD if you're looking for the originals.

This CD does not do justice to Tommie James' hits. I kept thinking something was wrong with my sound system because of the poor sound quality. I should have read the reviews first. Read more
