Customer Review

I see that the other 3 reviews for this 3-CD set all assign 5 stars and, I suppose, if they are less "collectors" and more of Ronnie Dove fans, that's a fair assessment. The sound is good, the liner notes informative, and they certainly go deep into his vault of hits. But not deep enough.

First of all, the man had 20 charted hit singles from 1964 to 1969, all with Phil Kahl's Diamond Records of New York City (Kahl, in fact, produced most of those hits). But somehow, in spite of turning out 60 tracks, they contrive to leave out two legitimate hits! While inserting their uncharted B-sides!

Mind you, the two missing weren't among his top charters by any means, as Dancin' Out Of My Heart could only get to # 87 Hot 100 late in December 1967 (b/w Back From Baltimore), while In Some Time finished at # 37 Adult Contemporary/# 99 Hot 100 in March 1968 (b/w Livin' For Your Lovin'). But still, they WERE hits and therefore the target of many collectors (like myself). And this IS, after all, titled "For Collectors Only."

In every other respect this is a 5-star edition - but here is one collector who has had it up to the ears with Collectables' approach to compilations. They do this all TOO often, and as a suggestion they should send their producers over to the U.K. to see how they do it at Ace of London (or any of the other British outlets for that matter).
