These album tracks are in stereo and good, not great, sound. The bonus tracks however, were apparently thrown on from whatever inferior source that may have been laying around the BMG vaults. They are not in stereo and not the quality they should be for a CD reissue.
This leads to the fact that these other tracks are available on Taragon's "Very Best of" compilation with its vastly superior sound. If you must have the entire "Follow" album, then this is your only choice. If you want a more comprehensive, far better-sounding compilation of March's RCA work, go for the Taragon piece.
The album starts out with one of Peggy's biggest hits, "I Will Follow Him." Peggy sings this flawlessly; and the beat is awesome! The drums, percussion and strings carry the bulk of the melody and the backup vocalists do a great job of singing sweetly in harmony, too. This sweet ballad has Peggy singing of how she will follow her one true love so she can always be with him.
"Dream World" again features Peggy's vocals squarely in the spotlight; and the strings work very well on this number. Peggy sings this perfectly and her vocal range is just right for this number. "I Wish I Were A Princess" is a masterpiece in Peggy March's capable hands; Peggy sings this with all her heart and soul. Peggy sings of her love and how she wants to spend forever with her man. The drums, percussion, strings and more make the melody very special and I predict that you will enjoy "I Wish I Were A Princess" very much.
Listen also for "I'll Never Forget Last Night." The men on backup do a good job; and the melody is very catchy. Peggy sings this song with panache and the drums are used to great advantage. Great! "Teasin'" is a cute little number that gets the royal treatment from Peggy as she sings this very well. The backup vocalists do well and the electric guitar on "Teasin'" really enhances the strength of this ballad.Read more ›
Only Collectables and Master Classics are available new at reasonable prices and unfortunately for that element of the buying public known as the completist hits collector not one of the four contains all 10 sides of her five charted singles. Of course each contains her smash debut hit I Will Follow Him, an adaption of the French song Chariot which made her, at age 15, the youngest female singer to have a # 1 Billboard Pop Hot 100 (a record she holds to this day) when it hit that peak in April-May 1963 (and stayed at # 1 for 4 weeks) on RCA Victor 8139. It also showed its wide appeal by reaching # 1 R&B, but it's not clear if she was also the youngest female to establish that mark as well. Only the Taragon volume omits the B-side, Wind-Up Doll.Read more ›

I originally received the record for my 16th birthday over 60 years ago. It brought back so many adolescent memories. Don't know if is good or not. I loved it.Published 9 months ago by lark
