Editorial Reviews

Brian's long out-of-print 1970 album for Uni, which he co-produced with fellow former teen idol Del Shannon! But this was a far more mature, reflective effort than Hyland's early, teeny-bopper sides, highlighted by the hit cover of Curtis Mayfield & the Impressions' Gypsy Woman . Numbered, limited edition of 5000!

5.0 out of 5 stars Brian's Best June 18, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This album is the best I've ever heard. The mechanics of Brian's music is electrifying. It sounds as beautiful today as it did 30 years ago. This music should passed down from generation to generation, not forgotten. This album should listened to and mentally embraced by everyone who listens to it.

Format:Audio CD
Those who know Hyland's work probably remember this album's #3 charting single, "Gypsy Woman"; others will peg him for his 1960 novelty "Itsy Bitsy Teeny Weeny Yellow Polka Dot Bikini," or his classic 1962 long-summer hit "Sealed With a Kiss." All three provide elements of Hyland's sound - playful, melodic and dramatic - but none fully prepare you for the brilliance of this 1970 come-back LP.

With fellow pop master Del Shannon in the producer's chair, Hyland sang a superbly selected set of covers and originals. The opening medley from Westside Story is turned from show tune to soul-searching adult-contemporary pop, with drums, bass and piano in front of a compelling string arrangement. Hyland is surprisingly effective as a blue-eyed soul singer on Jackie Wilson's "Lonely Teardrops," and with the help of a fuzz-guitar, Larry Williams' "Slow Down" is turned into a credible blues-rock shout.

Hyland is a gifted artist - much more gifted than his hit singles revealed - able to marry the qualities of his voice to the demands of his material. His version of "The Thrill is Gone" won't make you forget B.B. King, but neither will it have you fast-forwarding to the next track, and his hit rendition of Curtis Mayfield's "Gypsy Woman" perfectly modernizes the Impressions original into early-70s soul. Shannon's arrangements follow suit, cannily melding a pure-pop background into the songs' own structures.

Hyland and Shannon's originals are just as good as the covers, winningly mixing bass-guitar-and-drums with organ, strings and horns. "On the East Side" and "I'm Without You" show influences of the Hollies and Zombies, as well as the production-pop sounds of California.

3.0 out of 5 stars one singer - two eras November 22, 2002
Format:Audio CD
this cd is typical of the record companies - It is aimed at the general 'oldie' lover but not the dyed-in-the-wool fan. It is an album of two halves: pre & post beatles material - i certainly know what i prefer!!. Where are the missing early songs including flipsides and LP tracks? - Brian Hyland made his name as one of the teen idols and this material should be kept separately from the later songs. This could be said of many similar artists i.e. Tommy Roe and Lou Christie - at least 'Rosemary' was included - oh for the complete recordings to 1963.

4.0 out of 5 stars Some hits still missing August 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
There are several Brian Hyland greatest hits collection available, not one of them has all his hits. For instance, "Baby face", "Lopsided overload" and "Four little heels (The clickity clack song)" are not available in most of these CDs. Luckliy, I have the above three missing songs from other compilations, "Four little heels" from Europe MCA's 1989 release titled "16 Original World Hits - Golden Gate Collection -Brian Hyland", "Baby face" from oldies compilation "Platinum Oldies" released by Hong Kong's WEA, and "Lopsided overloaded" from a friend's old LP transferred to CD. Record companies are accustomed to leave out some hits in the greatest hits compilation, almost all of them adopt this market strategy, so we have to buy more than one CD to get all the hits of one particular artist, if they are still available in the market, but in reality, the missing hits are really hard to find. Let's hope that someday record companies would do more research work before releasing greatest hits CD to fit customers' need.

4.0 out of 5 stars You & Me September 29, 2008
Format:Audio CD
I could not find this on vinyl so had to pick up the CD--beautiful packaging--even the CD looks like the label of the record (Uni label) in a nice sleeve--deluxe job!

Music is great..Gypsy Woman, You & Me....Like the previous reviewer noted there could have been some bonus tracks appended--like all the UNI singles and B-Sides ("No Place To Run" "Only Want To Make You Happy" etc)--but why complain. Lucky to have it on any format at all. Highly recommended.

2.0 out of 5 stars Too much remastered March 5, 2008
Format:Audio CD
The music and the album are great. But I had a couple of more albums of Brian Hyland. I played same songs from the same starting points. The sound on this album is flat. It is cleaner but flat. Not a good remaster.

5.0 out of 5 stars CAN'T PICTURE ROCK-POP WITHOUT THESE SINGERS October 23, 2002
Format:Audio CD
IT REALLY IS GREAT THAT ALL THIS MUSIC WAS RE-RELEASED WHEN RECORDS WENT TO C.D.'S. I CAN'T PICTURE POP-ROCK WITHOUT THESE SINGERS. BRIAN HYLAND DID OTHER BEAUTIFUL SONGS THAN "SEALED WITH A KISS" AND THEY ARE HERE ON THIS C.D. SOUNDING CLEARER THAN EVER! I TRULY RECOMMEND THIS PARTICULAR COMPLETE COLLECTION.WHEN AN ALBUM IS TITLED "GREATEST HITS" WE ARE VERY DISAPPOINTED WHEN THEY'RE NOT ALL THERE, AS WAS THE CASE IN ANNETTE'S C.D.BY NOT PUTTING IN ALL THE SONGS, FUTURE GENERATIONS WILL THINK THAT IT WAS ALL THEY RECORDED OR THAT THE REST WERE NOT WORTHWHILE RE-RELEASING. BUY THIS C.D. IT'S GREAT!

5.0 out of 5 stars Five stars for the music and cover booklet! May 14, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is a pretty good collection of Brian Hyland hits.
It could have been more extensive, but all top forty hits are here.
And the c.d. has excellent sound.

From 1960 to 1971, Hyland had 22 songs chart, 15 of those are here.
Seven of those 15 made the top forty.
Here also is one b-side, "Save your heart for me",
and two songs that were not hits, "Rosemary" and "Could you dig it".

I have had this c.d. for many years, and have enjoyed what is here,
but I've always wanted some other songs that weren't here.
I've always LOVED the song "Hung up in your eyes" from 1967.

I have recently purchased a c.d. that has EVERY Hyland charted song.
It's just what I was looking for, as far as the music goes.
But often the imports will be mimimal in their packaging, and information.
Thats how my new c.d. is.
So, -- THERE IS something special about this 1994
M.C.A. release of greatest hits after all.
THE FIFTHTEEN PAGE COVER BOOKLET!

Here are some nice pictures of Hyland, a lot of information about his life and career.
Included with the track listing is the year and chart position of each song,
that's a nice extra. Sooo, this old c.d. is nice to have after all.

Five stars for the quality of the music, and the hits that ARE here,
and the BOOKLET that has turned into a prized possession in my oldies collection!

Footnote: The c.d. "Brian Hyland" on Rock and beat label was my choice
to add ALL of Hylands hits to my collection.
The cover pictures Hyland in a red shirt, and the entire cover is yellow and red.
Hyland's hands are around the end of a guitar.
