the hit versions and very few (none?) seem to have the original singers. I feel like I was ripped off.
"New stereo recordings by the original artists".
I personally prefer all original recordings.
I love the music and voices that drew me to the song in the first place.
Having said that, it also needs said that some people may enjoy this collection also.
My daughter has this set, and loves it.
For her it's not a big deal, she's not a purest wanting only originals.
I've listened to the entire 3 disc set and think it has some merit.
After all, some of these artists are still preforming,
and this is about what they'd sound like in concert today.
Comparing this set to the originals, no they don't sound quite the same.
Occasionally they aren't quite as energetic,
and some word expressions are a tiny bit different.
But over-all this set is decent for re-recorded music.
If you prefer original recordings you may want to notice
this set is by Madacy special productions, and stay away from that label.

Great old tunes in a surprise metal box rather than a plastic CD case. Brought back good memories, quick delivery, excellent service.Published on March 1, 2011 by C. Reis
I don't know if these are the first unmixed takes of these songs or what. It is definitely the real groups singing but sort of like a non live, live version or something. Read morePublished on April 5, 2010 by Jon S. Arnold
