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.
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.
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.]

If you are looking for a very good british invasion band , the Fortunes are the band for you. Not the Beatles, nor the Stones, but a good sounding mersey beat group. Read morePublished on November 23, 2012 by Jimmy G
