Bobby Vee - 30 Big Hits of the 60's Volume 1 & 2 (1964-1966)

As many other artists in the early sixties, Bobby Vee also made some albums with hits from others. Even as Bobby himself had a string of almost 40 hits of his own, he didn't step back for some extra commercial success with chart busters of other artists. Results of his interpretation of those classics you can find on two original releases from 1964 and 1966. Bobby Vee compiled the songs to several medleys who can't compete with the originals, but I think that wasn't really his intention. Both LP's are examples of uncomplicated 'party' music for his fans -- and he had a lot. Listen to Bobby's versions of Beatle hits as "Do You Want To Know A Secret," "P.S. I Love You," and "Love Me Do," place them back in 1964 and you can only hope that John Lennon and Paul McCartney never heard them at that time. But what the hell.., cheek to cheek on the dance floor you had other things to think about.
