I'm one of Jan & Dean's biggest fans. However, I think that this CD is a very dissapointing collection. First of all, regardless of the fact that the cover says "original recordings," the version of "Surf City" included here is most definitely NOT the original recording. It doesn't even sound like Jan & Dean who are singing on this song. I have no idea where they found that recording of Surf City, but it sounds nothing like the original hit that is played on the radio! Secondly, the version of "Deadman's Curve" which is included here is the album version, which sounds quite different from the single version. It was the single version which actually became the hit and got played on the radio. The version of "Jennie Lee" included here is a re-corded version that Jan & Dean did in 1960. It is not the original hit single from 1958 (actually released as "Jan & Arnie"), and once again, is not the version that is played on the radio. If you're looking to hear the original Jan & Dean HITS as you would hear them on the radio, or on the original 45's, this collection is not what you are looking for.

I agree with "A music fan" that some of these songs are not the original recordings, even though it says so on the cover. I'm tossing this one out to buy a different one.

OK...Ordering this CD here thru an Amazon seller was a breeze, new, and cheap to boot! And the songs I remember sound pretty good, are lots of fun, even if a bit childish at times! "Surf City", "Little Old Lady", and "Dead Man's Curve" are my favorites. (Does anyone know who sang the lead here, and spoke the ending refrain. Was it Jan, who in 1966 had a terrible auto crash? Very odd)..Old standards like "Linda" and "Heart and Soul" have 1950's goofy teenage arrangements; a few others get to sound somewhat repetitive, with three chord melodies that I never noticed long ago, and which are very basic. Harmonies much like the old Beach Boys, who were their contemporaries, and who moved way past teen-aged car/surf songs in a few years...Good solid 4 stars. With a few others tunes not included, it could be 5-stars. But given the price and service, a fine value!

This is a short and sweet greatest hits. It is priced well, but if you are looking for a more comprehensive set, you may want to get one that offers more songs. If you just want the basics this one will do fine.

The quality of the music production was lower than I expected. Several times the left or right track was barely audible...like the music lost its stereo effect. Very little in the bass line also. This album very obviously had not been remastered in any way, shape, or form...like they took the original album and burned it onto one of the table top CD recorders. The tunes themselves were great, but the sound quality not so much. As always, the merchandise arrived promptly in good condition.

It was fun to hear the songs by Jan and Dean that we hadn't heard in a long time and were our favorites. We have to admit that there were a few songs we never heard before and wonder how they made the greatest hit album.

I was very disappointed when I played the CD ! The voices of Jan & Dean were drowned out by the music! Who ever recorded the original songs did not know what they were doing !! My 33 Album of JAN & Dean does not sound like the CD !! What a disappointment !!
