Not long after we released our complete collection of Jan & Dean singles last year, the collector community started calling for us to do the same for another great singles act of the 60s, Gary Lewis & the Playboys. And since we are a label and a catalog of, by and for the fine people that make up that very collector community, how could we say no? We even got one of the leaders of that community, Steve Hoffman his online site is one of the most frequented oldies message boards on the internet to oversee the mastering, along with our old friend Ed Osborne to produce and do the liner notes (and do them he did, interviewing producers Snuff Garrett and Bones Howe, drummers Hal Blaine and Jim Keltner, singer and Gary s 'ghost' voice Ron Hicklin, and even Gary himself)! Just as was the case with the J&D set, virtually all of these original mono singles mixes have never appeared on CD; in fact, the master tapes have remained untouched for over 40 years! And man, do they sound good, the way they sounded when they came cracklin out of your radio back then. Some of these songs, especially the B-sides, have never appeared on CD in ANY version, and we ve even dug up a promo-only rarity, 'Way Way Out', to sweeten the deal. It s 45 tracks of classic 60s pop-rock, the COMPLETE Liberty singles of Gary Lewis & the Playboys (many of which are pictured inside the booklet), exclusively from Collectors Choice Music!
