Customer Reviews

The company most likely got a bunch of no-names to cover the songs.
Blamstermash
Although the sound quality is OK and most of the recordings are by the original artists, less than half of the selections are the original versions.
Ray P
It is still the original artists but the Arrangements are different.

These tracks are NOT by the original artists. These CDs were made in Portugal. The company most likely got a bunch of no-names to cover the songs. There are no actual names of the people who covered these songs. The covers aren't even better than what high-school bands would sound if they attempted these songs. The CDs named the original artists to con potential buyers. I wish I could give these CDs zero stars for trying to rip-off buyers.

Well save your money this is one of those cd compilations that has been deone by one or more of the groups arists.To the un proven ear you might be fooled but side by side with the originals you can hear the difference,Save your money and buy the originals in other collections here on Amazon.It is very unfair that there is no mention of this to buyers before they spend there money on junk like this.

Although the sound quality is OK and most of the recordings are by the original artists, less than half of the selections are the original versions. Most are re-recordings done at a later date. The original sounds just aren't there. If you are a purist, avoid this set.

...other negative reviewers are onto something..."Denise" by Randy and the Rainbows is obviously not Randy or any of his Rainbows since frontman Randy sang in a falsetto and this fake Randy doesn't...but others like "Green Tambourine" and "Let it all Hang Out" and of course, Tiny Tim's contribution are definitely the original originals...to borrow a line from "Spinal Tap". Caveat emptor I guess which is too bad because it's a nice selection.

Well, I guess if you buy alot of music (which I do), you're bound to get ripped off every now and then. But this could all be avoided if Amazon required some kind of warning for such obvious cheats as this set. This bunch of songs are truly pisspoor imitations. I couldn't find anything that would have warned me to save my money and steer clear. Hey Amazon---are you listening??

I bit. I bought this and to my dismay found that the songs are not the original hit singles. Oh well, we get burned sometimes.

This album is the biggest ripoff, most of these songs don't sound like the originals. They are not the original recordings.....DON'T waste your money on this. I would have given it less than 1 star but this review wouldn't let me!!!!!! Once again, this album is a big RIPOFF.

What a waste! These cd's are not what I thought I was buying. "Indiana Wants Me" is not done by the original artist. None of the songs are. It sounds like the person was on drugs or drunk. The original song has sirens. This version doesn't. I am not very happy. Very disappointed. PLEASE DON'T BUY!!!
