4.0 out of 5 stars A real gem....much better than I expected! November 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
If you are like me and enjoy early to mid 50's pop then in all likelihood you are at least familiar with the Fontane Sisters. Most people would recall the groups two Top Ten hits from that era. "Hearts of Stone" climbed all the way to the top of the Billboard charts in 1955 and the bouncy "Seventeen" was a number three smash later that same year. Love that tune! What many people fail to realize is that the Fontane Sisters managed to reel off a string of two dozen hits in the seven year period from 1951-1957. For a good many years most of these songs were extremely difficult to find. Now Remember records which appears to be based in Portugal of all places has released "The Fontane Sisters: Their Greatest Hits". This terrific new disc presents 25 of the girls best and brightest tunes from back in the day. For me this one was a real find!
"The Fontane Sisters: Their Greatest Hits" offers up nearly all of the groups charted singles from their days at both RCA Victor and Dot. I must admit that I enjoyed them all. From the early part of the decade enjoy the Top 20 hits "Tennessee Waltz" as well as the Hank Williams' classic "Cold Cold Heart". I was also partial to "Daddy-O" and most especially to the Sisters rendition of the great Drifters hit "Adorable". Finally, I would like to recommend to you both "Most of All" and "If I Could Be With You (One Hour Tonight)". Although neither song ever cracked the Billboard Hot 100 they proved to be highly enjoyable nonetheless.
"The Fontane Sisters: Their Greatest Hits" comes with a couple of pages of informative liner notes and the remastering job is dandy. Fans of group harmony should certainly latch onto this one! Recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars I Received My Request - Sort Of September 28, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
In my review of the Varese Sarabande release Hearts Of Stone: The Best Of The Fontane Sisters, I suggested they re-release that volume and either include the following as additional tracks, or put them in place of some of the non-hits:

Playmates, the flip of Rollin' Stone and a # 13 follow-along hit in 1955; Nuttin' For Christmas, a # 36 in December 1955; Lonesome Lover Blues - the flip of Voices and a # 93 in 1956 with Pat Boone narrating; Still - the flip of Please Don't Leave Me and a # 86 in late 1956; and last - but certainly not least - their version of The Banana Boat Song which made it to a quite respectable # 13 early in 1957 and which was currently not available anywhere on CD. That, I said, would give us all 18 of their solo hit singles for the Dot label in one swoop.

Well, Varese Sarabande has so far made no move to follow that suggestion, but in the meantime along came this release from an outfit called Remember and made in Portugal which DOES provide all five of the above-mentioned hits, along with the five they had for RCA Victor from 1951 to 1954 before joining Dot. Unfortunately, they too come up just a bit short of a complete hits compilation by including three tracks that were not hits (7, 14, and 25) and omitting three that were. In fact, their final three: I'm Stickin' With You (# 72 Billboard Pop Top 100 in May 1957); Chanson d'Amour [Song Of Love] (# 12 Top 100 in May 1958); and Jealous Heart (# 94 in November 1958).

So, either we wait for someone else to come up with a 24-track release that contains ALL the hits, or we make do by combing this release with the Varese Sarabande one. The only problem with that is the rather high price placed on used copies of the latter at this writing.

Contains their greatest hits from the 50's. One of the great cover-groups of the era.

This Album has ALL six of their charted hits from 1951-54 and almost all of them from 1955-57. There is only three out of twenty five tracks on this album that were not charted hits. Twenty-Two are charted hits. This album will fill out the Fontane Sisters Discography for you. You can be sure I'll be playing it on my Radio Show. It's a really nice CD.

In 1994 Varese released their "Hearts of Stone" CD, which does not contain any of the songs before 1955. This CD has the seven from the early fifties, an oversite by varese. The Fontane Sisters appeared with Perry Como on several recordings from 1948-51, when in 1951, went out on their own and had a series of hits that are contained on this album. Some of which I've heard for the first time.
