Editorial Reviews

The Fortunes are an archetypal English beat group. Formed in Birmingham, The Fortunes first came to prominence and international acclaim in 1965, when "You've Got Your Troubles" broke into the American and British Top Tens. In 1966, their manager Reginald Calvert was shot dead in a dispute over Pirate radio stations. Following in the wake of Merseybeat, and the R&B of The Rolling Stones, The Fortunes added another dimension to the sound of pop, with their sophisticated orchestration, dual lead vocals and well worked counter-melodies

If you are a fan of the 60's British Invasion, you need this cd. There are other, cheaper compilations of The Fortunes' music out there. The problem is, all those are inferior re-recordings. It took me a helluva long time to find the original hit version of HERE IT COMES AGAIN, but by gosh, it's here, along with all the other ORIGINAL HIT RECORDINGS of The Fortunes, like YOU'VE GOT YOUR TROUBLES and HERE IT COMES AGAIN. Yep, it's an import and will cost you a few extra bucks, but if you want the best, you gotta get this one.

Excellent compilation from this group and like the other reviewer said all originals.Which is very hard to come by, by this group especially one that features all their singles, even over here in england home of the group.Includes thier first top twenty singles they had here in england you've got your troubles and here it comes again and their early 70s hits as well over here the catchy freedom come freedom go,storm in a tea cup etc...Remastered well comes with pictures of the group from the early 60s to early 70s,also comes with precise history of the group overall worth the money.

The Fortunes emerged in mid-sixties Britain with their debut single, Caroline, which failed to chart but was adopted as the theme song of the famous pirate radio station, Radio Caroline. This gave them plenty of publicity and they went on to have five UK chart hits, four of which made the top ten. Of these, the one they are best remembered for is You've got your troubles, their biggest hit. It peaked at number two in Britain and made the top ten in America. The follow-up, Here it comes again, made the top five in Britain and the top thirty in America. Following these two, their next single, This golden ring, was a comparative disappointment, failing to reach the UK top ten and being only a minor American hit. Worse was to follow, as they were unable to chart again for a few years.

Changes of label eventually yielded more hits, these being That same old feeling (a minor USA hit, in direct competition with the original by Pickettywitch), Here comes that rainy day feeling again (USA top twenty), Freedom come freedom go (UK top ten, a minor USA hit) and Storm in a teacup (UK top ten hit). So ended the chart career of the Fortunes.

This compilation contains all these hits together with all the intermediate failed singles. Moreover, these are all the original recordings - something not always true of re-issues of Fortunes music.

If you enjoy the music of the Hollies and the Tremeloes, you might give the Fortunes a listen.

This is the most complete CD to contain The Fortunes ORIGINAL RECORDINGS of their '60's and early '70's hits [ and misses too that didn't chart, but are top-notch quality ]. What also makes this the definitive Fortunes CD is that it includes the original versions from the different labels they recorded for : Decca , Press, United Artists, World Pacific & Capitol. So, it's great to have them all on one disc.

Also has some great little heard songs that were hits overseas, but not in the US. For instance , their version of " Seasons In The Sun " was released in 1969 & a big hit in Holland . Some great songs here of great UK pop with vocal harmonies. Nice booklet contains the history of the group, picture sleeves and photos. This CD is THE one to get for fans of this great pop group.

I was just 15 years old in 1965 when "You've Got Your Troubles" hit the American charts and peaked at Number 7, their only Top Ten Hit in the USA.

This song brings back so many memories and was just one of the British Invasion hits that inspired me as a freshman in High School to learn guitar and compose and perform rock music.

This collection offers some 24 Fortune tunes, many of which never made it to the US airways after the boycott many American Record companys and radio stations foisted upon us to beef up the sagging rock scene here in the states in the later 60's.

"Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again" finally broke through the charts and rose to Billboard's Top 15 song in 1971; another great hit by the Fortunes. For some reason this compilation, "The Hits" rating chart by song doesn't show this for that song [?]

This is an excellent import CD from BF Holland, and kudos to Amazon for offering this product and providing so many wonderful memories. It was worth every penny, and is the best compilation of this group I have ever seen. [p.s. It was the Fortunes who sang the original and famous "It's the Real Thing" Coca Cola jingle that sold a lot of coke.]

You've Got Your Troubles, Here It Comes Again and 5&1/2 years later, Here Comes That Rainy Day Feeling Again. All here and all the originals. I can't add much to the other reviewers except to say that this is a nice CD.
Just about every song is listenable and that says something as sometimes you get the hits but you also get the misses; not here. Good CD even if it costs a little more. No matter what age we live in you still get what you pay for.

This is a wonderful compilation of the greatest hits from a group that receives far too little airplay. Their body of work is impressive ranging from pop British Invasion hits to catchy commercial jingles. This is a great recording to add to your library.
