5.0 out of 5 stars A Better Bet Than Their "25 All-Time Greatest Hits" September 6, 2007
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Unlike the CD titled "25 All-Time Greatest Hits" from Varese-Sarabande, this one gives you all fourteen of their charted singles from 1954 to 1961, plus the B-sides to Born To Be With You (Love Never Changes on Cadence 1291) and Lollipop (Baby Come-A Back-A on Cadence 1345). It would have been nice had they excluded The Exodus Song (Cadence 1412 in 1961) and Lonely Lips (Cadence 1259 in 1955), both of which were failed singles, and instead included a couple of the other missing B-sides such as I Don't Wanna See You Cryin' (b/o Mr. Sandman on Cadence 1247) and I Don't Know - I Don't Care (b/o The Wedding on Cadence 1273), but that's a minor quibble.

The foursome from Sheboygan, Wisconsin [bass Janet Ertel, her baritone sister-in-law Carol Buschman, lead Dorothy Schwartz, and tenor Jinny Osborne], who began their career on the Arthur Godfrey Show in 1949, was one of several early "girl groups" to be influenced by the immortal Andrews Sisters.

As their popularity grew on Godfrey's show, that egomaniac became less and less enchanted, and in 1953 he fired them (as he did with Julius LaRosa and band leader Archie Bleyer). With new members Lynn Evans (replacing Schwartz) and Margie Needham (replacing Osborne), the group moved to Bleyer's new Cadence label where, in 1954, and with Bleyer's backing, they took Mr. Sandman to the # 1 position where it remained for seven weeks, extending into 1955. In 1956 Ertel married Bleyer.

While nothing worked for them throughout the remainder of 1955, and although their next hit, The Wedding, only reached # 91 Pop Top 100 in January 1956, from that point on they were seldom off the charts throughout the rest of the decade.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun to listen to, if you are a Chordettes fan. April 9, 2014
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I bought this CD because I enjoy listening to some of the "oldies" music. Since I didn't grow up in that era, some of the songs seem a little cheesy. : ] But I've had the best time just singing along with it! If you like the Chordettes, I believe this is some of their most popular tunes.
