I liked and was familiar with the two title songs, but nothing else featured on this CD. My sister suggested that I would enjoy this CD and she was right since it has quickly become a favorite of mine. The songs are great with that "sixties" sound and beat.

This is a great collection of good quality music, by a good group, especially Anita. I was stationed at Camp Lejeune with Anita - what a pleasant, unpretentious person. Even after her fame, Anita remained a humble classy lady. As an example of her classiness - we were both selected for promotion to Corporal at the same time. Anita asked that someone "more deserving" be given the stripes. A couple of years later, white stationed in Atlanta, I was able to see Anita perform with the Army special services entertainment group. She saw me in the audience and came over to chat as soon as the show ended. Anita had served out her term in the Marine Corps, tried civilian life for a while, then joined the army to travel the world as an entertainer. I hope you are still entertaining Anita - your voice and style are awesome. Barb Beva, USMC,
Retired

Format: Audio CD
From the point of view of the completist hits collectors, of the two CDs currently available covering the work of the early 1960s vocal group The Essex (the other is Best Of The Essex from Sequel of the U.K.), this Collectables volume is by far the better choice. Both carry all six sides of their three nationally-charting singles, but this one, in pulling together the contents of two of their three LPs for Roulette Records, has much improved sound quality as well as informative liner notes by Mark Marymont. The two albums covered were both released in 1963 - "Easier Said Than Done" (Roulette SR 25234 - tracks 1 to 12) and "A Walkin' Miracle" (Roulette SR 25235 - tracks 13 to 24). They would have one more album for Roulette in 1964 (see the Comments below).

The idea to form a group began with U.S. Marines Walter Vickers of New Brunswick, New Jersey and Gary, Indiana's Rodney Taylor while serving on Okinawa, and when they returned to Camp Lejeune they recruited New York City-born Rudolph Johnson, Princeton, New Jersey's Billy Hill and female vocalist Anita Humes from Harrisburg, Pa. Their demo of Easier Said Than Done, a tune written by William Linton and Larry Huff, led to a contract with Roulette, and by July 1963 they and the label had a smash # 1 on both the Billboard Pop Hot 100 and R&B charts as Roulette 4494 b/w Are You Going My Way? Contributing to the widespread appeal was the staccato-like delivery which, it was claimed, emulated the loud cacophony caused by the many teletype machines all pounding away at once in the Camp Lejeune communications centre.

WHILE STATIONED AT CAMP LEJENUE,ANITA WAS ASSIGNED TO MY DEPARTMENT. SHE WAS VERY PLEASANT AND COOPERATIVE, ALWAYS IN A GOOD MOOD,OVERALL A GREAT EMPLOYEE. IT IS NOT SURPRISING THAT HER SINGING HAS SUCH A JOYFUL LILT. IT WAS ALWAYS A PLEASURE TO SEE HER PERFORM ON THE ED SULLIVAN SHOW OR OTHER VARIETY SHOWS OF THE ERA. THE SONGS ON THIS CD REALLY SHOW THE SCOPE OF HER ABILITIES AS HER STYLE CHANGES QUICKLY FROM SULTRY TO SEXY TO PLAYFUL TO ROMANTIC...YOU NAME IT, SHE'S GOT IT. ANITA, WHEREVER LIFE HAS TAKEN YOU, I HOPE YOU ARE STILL SINGING!

I was familiar with their two big hits of course, but only from YouTube and Pandora did I become familiar with more of their music. Their work, originally on two albums, is combined on a single disc. I've unchecked a couple covers in iTunes but most of the rest is really great stuff. My personal favorite is "I'd Do Anything."

The heart of The Essex, Anita Humes, passed away in June 2010.

Rest in peace, Anita, knowing that your voice and the music you gave us live on!

Listening to oldies over the years I finally narrowed the list down to two favorites: "Easier Said than Done" and one by Linda Ronstadt. At first I couldn't find Essex, then I wasn't sure I wanted the whole album. Now I have this for my auto while driving; I love every song. Early rock is still the best! Thanx Amazon and thanx Essex!

I bought this cd primarily for the headline song "Easier said than Done", which I always enjoy. Some of the other sons are also good, and the price is reasonable. The Essex have some good instrumentals and vocals. I don't know much about the technical aspect, but I know what I like, and this cd did not disappoint.
