4.0 out of 5 stars These Are The Originals July 25, 2000
Format:Audio CD
As I was involved in putting the Pat Boone album on this page together (interviewing Pat for the liner notes), I should reiterate that these are the original Dot label recordings, which MCA now owns; that the reviews saying they are not refer to the Curb Record collection, which also has fewer tracks. How this got messed up, I don't know, but the MCA collection (and Volume 2, on Varese Sarabande) are the originals, both compiled with Pat's approval.

5.0 out of 5 stars This is the Real McCoy!! Buy the MCA version!! June 9, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Want to clarify an earlier review....The bogus recordings appear on the CURB label's version of "Greatest Hits". The MCA label's "Greatest Hits" are authentic and original DOT Records recordings! Review for the CURB lable Cd was erroneously placed under the MCA Cd.....are you confused yet??

3.0 out of 5 stars Unintentional Pioneer October 22, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Along with Rick Nelson, Pat Boone was an artist in the 50's who helped make what had been called "race" music popular to non-black audiences-- outselling the originals while no doubt leading many to seek out what the originals really sounded like. (The Beatles' early recordings had the same effect on me, introducing me to earlier artists I might not have found otherwise.) For someone like me, who doesn't rank Boone as highly as dozens or even hundereds of other artists (call it personal taste) this is an EXCELLENT collection that features his early R&B covers, and a nice selection of his later "shmaltzy" stuff. Sure, I don't play it much-- but I can't argue with the quality & beauty of the stuff here!
However, my favorite song here is the one Pat says his manager urged him NOT to record, as by then he'd put rock & roll behind him: "Speedy Gonzales"! I find it hard to believe the story that Pat's manager somehow invited his friend Mel Blanc to contribute to the recording without realizing Blanc was ALREADY the voice of the cartoon mouse! (Talk about too silly for words.) That it became Pat's BIGGEST-selling single only proves to me that Boone, if anything, had better instincts that his manager. GO, PAT! I only wish they'd have included the MONO 45 mix, as it has more "punch" than the stereo version here. This is a common problem with repackages; if they're giving us the "hits", they should make sure it's really the "hit" versions! The same thing plagued The Monkees' "Pleasant Valley Sunday" for over 2 decades' worth of reissues...

5.0 out of 5 stars Great singer-Great songs March 23, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Pat Boone's misfortune was that he came along too late in the game...Boone is essentially a crooner,even if I am stretching the definition of that word a bit..He came along at a time when popular music was undergoing a very radical change(a change that has not been for the better,as rap and heavy metal ,two forms of musical self-abuse,have shown)..His voice is pleasant(whereas most of today's"stars" have ruff,untrained,untalented voices,better suited to singing in the shower-or not singing at all-than singing for a living),and most of his songs are sentimental rather than artsy-fartsy,mind-numbingly personal,or just plain rubbish(as are most of the stuff we are subjected to today)...and Boone suffers because some of his cover versions are sweetly done,while the originals,often by "artists"with less talent than Boone,sound raw which,unfortunately,has been the standard since the late 1950s...For those who hate talent,sentiment,quality,romance,and other pre-Elvis musical attributes,Pat Boone's music is anathema..Most listeners who hate Boone's work have very little tolerance for anything other than the gutter trash that is today's'popular"music..But for those who appreciate QUALITY,Pat Boone remains a hero,and this album contains a lot of his very best sides.

5.0 out of 5 stars AN ESSENTIAL PAGE OF ROCK AND ROLL !!! May 10, 2010
Format:Audio CD
This is a classic collection, and an essential page of Rock n' roll.
Pat Boone was "one of the first young singers to help bridge the gap
between traditional pop music and rock n' roll".
With his clean cut image, white bucks, and a singing style inspired by Bing Crosby,
he was a favorite of teenagers, and parents alike.
Topping the charts nearly a year before Elvis,
he stayed a regular there over the next four years.

This c.d. contains sixteen major hits starting with his first hit in 1955 to 1958,
plus two top ten hits "Moody river" 1961, and "Speedy Gonzales 1962.

One of my all time favorites and a 1956 #1 hit is here also,
"I almost lost my mind", who didn't "SWOON WITH BOONE" on that one?

Here are 14 top ten hits, and 4 top 20 hits, in this 1993 collection.
This c.d. is the first comprehensive compilation of original hit versions
of Boone's early Dot Records released in the U.S.A.
The fourteen page liner notes contain an overveiw of Boone's career,
several pictures, and the track listing includes the chart position.
This compilation is by M.C.A. in 1993. The sound quality is excellent.

Footnote: The perfect c.d. to continue the original recording hits,
that picks up in 1958 where this c.d. leaves off is,
"More Greatest Hits" on "Varese Sarabande", a Compilation by M.C.A. label in 1994.
It contains 18 original recordings, 17 charted and one b-side, "Theres a moon out tonight".
Included there is "Big cold wind" #19 in 1961, a rather difficult song to find.
There are NO repeats.

Those two C.D.s give you 35 of Boone's 60 charted songs.
And they make for wonderfull listening pleasure!
