this is one of the best Dickey Lee CDs I have heard. this one has most of his big hits. the only one missing is "Red, Green Yellow and Blue" an APCO 45 he had out around 1967/68. all the hits that are here, are the best recordings I have heard on a CD of Dickey Lee. I am most pleased with this CD. Keep up the good work. it is good to see a good recording of Dickey Lee hits.

No one-hit wonder, Dickey Lee had five of his tunes make it into the top 100 of the pop charts in the early 60's. Three earned top-20 status with one, the tear-stained "Patches" climbing into the top 10. Following the path of numerous early rock-n-roll artists, Lee migrated into country music and, in the 70's, had greater chart successes there with the likes of "Rocky", "Never Ending Song of Love" and many others.

Oddly, after twenty years of CD reissues coming to market, no well-established label has yet to offer a high-quality, legitimate Dickey Lee collection. Til that happens, this piece on Rock and Roll Records fills the bill in a reasonable, if not outstanding, way. Here are gathered all six of his pop-charting hits, including his mid-70's county hit "9,999,999 Tears" along with the aforementioned country hits plus additional b-sides, singles and album cuts. Overall, this 27-track compilation spans most of Lee's recording career justifying its "greatest hits" moniker.

Execution-wise, the sound quality, overall, is reasonably good with most tracks in stereo with the exception of tracks 3,6,8,9 and 27. The mono versions of "Patches" and "I Saw Linda Yesterday", and somewhat poor quality of tracks 9 and 27 however, do take a few points away. The liner notes are comprised of a brief overview of Lee's recording career and there is no detailed information on the individual tracks. With some typos in the printing adding to the lack of attention to detail, the less than optimum sound quality and meager background information, this piece loses a couple of stars in the rating. Faults aside, this is still, as of this time, the best available Dickey Lee CD. Until Ace or Bear or Eric comes up with a truly 5-star collection on Lee, this will satisfy, if not excite, fans of Dickey Lee's recordings.

I wish this CD had better availability, as it has great Dickey Lee songs that are virtually lost otherwise. This is the only CD I've found with "Angels, Roses and Rain " on it. That and "9,999,999 Tears to Go" are great memories of 70's country gold that deserve preservation. Some wonderful memories on this CD...I'll probably go ahead and buy it used before it's gone!

This is a good easy listening group of songs,
and the best Dickey Lee collection to buy at this point in time.
Dickey Lee had 5 songs make the pop chart between 1962 and 1965.

He then switched to country music, his first country charted single was
"The Mahogany pulpit" #55 in 1971.
Later in 1976 one of his country hits "9,999,999 Tears" crossed over
and was his 6th and last song on the pop chart.
All 6 of those are here, and one b-side "A girl I used to know".

He also had 29 songs on the country chart between 1971 and 1982.
Five of those are here, thats counting "9,999,999 tears" again, and no b-sides.

Of the other 22 country songs, only 1 made the top 20,
the rest landed between there and #94.

The total number of charted songs that's here on this 27 track c.d.
between both pop and country charts is 10.
The other 17 songs are album cuts etc.

The 6 songs on the pop chart are,
1. "Patches" - in 1962.
2. "I saw Linda yesterday" - in 1962.
3. "Don't wanna think about Paula" - in 1963.
4. "Laurie (strange things happen)" - in 1965.
5. "The girl from Peyton Place" b/w "A girl I used to know" - in 1965.
6. "9,999,999 Tears" - in 1976. BUT charted higher on the country chart.

The 5 songs here that made the country chart are,
1. "Never ending song of love" - in 1971.
2. "Ashes of love" - in 1972.
3. "Rocky" - in 1975.
4. "Angels, roses, and rain" - in 1976.
5. "9,999,999 Tears" - in 1976.

The liner has a small amount of information about Dickey Lee.
The label is "Rock and Roll Records" Netherlands.
Dickey Lee's music seems rather difficult to find.
This seems to be the best c.d. to be offered so far.
These are all original recordings.

There is a fantastic version of Laurie (Strange Things Happen) by the late great Steve Goodman on his anthology. Bought this on the back of that expecting something really kitsch. In fact I have found a hidden gem of an artist with an excellent voice, exemplary cover versions and originals and very good sound quality for the era. The loss of a star is because of a missed opportunity to provide a comprehensive information package to go with it.

An excellent summary of his recording career. Stange things happen indeed.
