Editorial Reviews

With the latest installment of our ''Hard-To-Find 45's on CD'' series, Eric Records tackles a broad topic - love songs. After all, most songs are love songs - all about wanting it, finding it, losing it, and every step in between. And, we've got that covered, from John Denver's heartfelt tribute to his wife, ''Annie's Song,'' to Ronnie Dyson's frank discussion of bedroom politics, ''(If You Let Me Make Love To You Then) Why Can't I Touch You?''

What makes Hard-To-Find 45's on CD Vol. 13: The Love Album really special, though, isn't the love part, it's the hard-to-find part. Sure, these are all love songs, and nearly all of them were Top 20 hits. But, trying to find these on any other CD collection is like trying to find a date at 10 o'clock on a Saturday night - not easy, and very expensive!

No less than six of these songs are making their CD debut in one form or another! Two of them - Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds' ''Winners And Losers'' (1975) and ''Do What You Wanna Do'' by Five Flights Up (1970) have never appeared on CD in any form, anywhere. Others, like The Avant-Garde's pop-psych paean ''Naturally Stoned'' (1968), make their stereo debut. (By the way, guess who was in The Avant-Garde? Future game show host Chuck Woolery!)

Like all of Eric's ''Hard-To-Find'' series, this volume embraces the marvelously eclectic nature of popular music. Its 19 tracks cover more than a decade of prime-time pop, from the swooning ''Love Me With All Your Heart'' by the Ray Charles Singers (1964) to Roger Whittaker's poignant ballad, ''The Last Farewell'' (1975). Included in that span is one of the most sought-after love songs of all time - Paul Stookey's ''Wedding Song (There Is Love)'' - in its original hit version.

But nowhere, however, is that eclecticism more apparent than in a foursome of songs expressing love for God - all unexpected Top 20 smashes in an arena not known for its reverence. We have famed songwriter Kris Kristofferson's quietly awestruck ''Why Me,'' the Edwin Hawkins Singers' ecstatic ''Oh Happy Day,'' and Miguel Rios's ''A Song Of Joy'' (1970), based on the climatic final movement of Beethoven's 9th Symphony (making its U.S CD debut, by the way...). And then there's the most unexpected hit single of all time: ''Amazing Grace'' by The Royal Scots Dragoon Guards (1972), which forced teenagers coast-to-coast to listen to bagpipes - and like it!

Hard-To-Find 45's on CD Vol. 13: The Love Album is built from original single versions on original master tapes, painstakingly engineered for crisp, vibrant, stereo sound. Like its companion volume, Hard-To-Find 45's on CD Vol. 14: 70s & 80s Pop Classics, it includes a detailed, illustrated 12-page booklet by well-known music author Greg Adams.

5.0 out of 5 stars Sounds great, Good Song Selection, Some Real Gems September 18, 2012
Format:Audio CD
Sound is excellent. Over ten pages of liner notes on the artists and songs. A total of nineteen tracks with some real gems including the stereo versions of "Naturally Stoned" by the Avant-Garde and "Do What You Wanna Do" by Five Flights Up, the mono single version of "Rings" by Cymarron as well as the single stereo versions of "Winners And Losers" and "Fallin' In Love" both by Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds from the long lost original master tapes. How can I forget the hard to find track "A Song Of Joy" by Miguel Rios (in English as was the hit US single). Speaking of hard to find how about "Amazing Grace" and "Little Arrows" which were both top 20 hits and tough to get on CD these days. Great collection from the folks at Eric Records.

5.0 out of 5 stars HTF 45s Vol. 13 September 21, 2012
Format:Audio CD
My original review got lost in cyber space so here's an update. WOW! That was my first impression when this arrived in the mail. Even more WOW when I listened to it! I have been waiting months to hear Love Me With All Your Heart. I spoke to Bill Buster about this song and he said it would be on Vol. 13. The sound is phenomenal especially considering the age of the recording 1964. Vikki Carr's It Must Be him never sounded better, great stereo sound. Don't Say You Don't Remember brings back a lot of memories and isn't that the whole purpose of these great songs? Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds Fallin' In Love And Winners And Losers have not been available on CD and are presented here in glorious stereo and sound down right great. Great songs! My Pledge Of Love is one of those 60's songs that you don't hear anymore and is presented here and is a welcome addition. And how about Chuck Woolery, the game show host, Naturally Stoned? You just don't connect the two do you? Great song and sound. One of the great love songs is Morris Albert's Feelings. Plagiarism is attached to this song but for me it's still a great song. Paul Stookey of Peter, Paul & Mary fame has the Wedding Song here and is one of those sentimental favorites. And how about that Secretariat movie song Oh Happy Day? It sounds great here and I'm so glad it was included in the compilation. Finally there's The Royal Scots Amazing Grace. Are you kidding me? A Bag Pipe song that reached #11 on the charts? I just love this song! Looking back on these songs, they just don't make em' like this anymore. THe sound is phenomenal and gets my Highest Recommendation. Great Job Bill & Company!

5.0 out of 5 stars Hard to Find--Easy to LIsten November 5, 2012
Format:Audio CD
I like this CD a lot. Songs like Ronnie Dyson's "Why Can't I Touch You" and "A song of Joy" by Miguel Rios are among those that rarely get oldies radio play, but are enduring tunes of good quality. 1967's "It Must Be Him" by Vikki Carr and "Annie's Song" by John Denver from 1974 carry universal emotions. There are 2 songs from Hamilton, Joe Frank & Reynolds from '75 that will probably bring back some forgotten memories. All in all, this is a good collection for followers of ballad pop from the late '60's and early-mid '70's.

This is great stuff! I should have ordered Volume 13 of Eric's outstanding "Hard To Find" series as soon as it came out last year. Eric really cares about quality, and it really shows on this great set. "Love Me With All Your Heart" made my pristine old Command LPs sound a bit like AM. "It Must Be Him" revealed sound details I'd never heard before. I loved it, but my wife cringed as she recalled the "weak woman" lyrics. No matter; she still sang along. I even enjoyed the incredible audio quality on "Feelings," which I've never cared for since having to play it hundreds of times back when I was on the air in the 70s. "Oh Happy Day," not exactly the cleanest recording ever made, sounded terrific, and "A Song Of Joy" was just incredible. If you just remember that one from AM radio, the great remastering on this set will be a real ear-opener. And it was fun to hear the Scottish bagpipers do "Amazing Grace" again. I've got thousands of records and discs, but somehow never encountered a copy of that song until now. My wife just loved hearing that again. She made me play it twice. That doesn't happen often!

This is just a great set. Everything in Eric's "Hard To Find" series is top notch. Even when Eric releases songs that I already have on other oldies compilation discs, I usually find that the Eric version has the best sound. These Eric discs just don't disappoint.

4.0 out of 5 stars Ecclectic collection containing rare recordings on CD November 3, 2013
Format:Audio CD
I purchased this CD directly from ERIC Records. It contains the usual muddy version of Beverly Bremers "Don't Say You Don't Remember" but it also contains the super-rare monster hit by Spanish superstar Miguel Rios, "A Song Of Joy(Himno A La Alegria". It sounds like the A&M Records' developed 'CSG-Haeco' mix. Sounds great in a surround system. One letdown is the MONO version of Cymarron's "Rings". Although the stereo versions out there are from their LP, the main difference is that the LP version is unusally sped up. It's usually the other way around, the 45 versions are usually sped up. So slow the LP stereo master down to match the 45 version's tempo and you'd have a first-time stereo 45 version. Included is The Avant-Garde's solo hit "Naturally Stoned", which is probably the first time it has been issued on CD in STEREO, which Columbia/Sony Music has neglected to do. A 1968 track, it is reminiscent of a song that could have been included in a James Bond movie. Also of note is the inclusion of African-born Englishman Roger Whittaker's sole U.S. hit "The Last Farewell" . Remember all those special T.V. commercials of Roger Whittaker's collections of his music? An ERIC ecclectic collection, of which Bill Buster is famous for, this CD is well-worth buying if for the Miguel Rios track alone.
