Eric CD #11503       $19.98        Add to cart

In early 2018, Eric Records revisited one of our most popular early collections to improve the overall sound and upgrade specific tracks. Originally released in 1996, this collection offers 21 hard-to-find pop hits from the early sixties, 12 in full stereo.

This newly re-mastered CD contains the ORIGINAL HIT SINGLE versions of #1 hits like “Sugar Shack” by Jimmy Gilmer & The Fireballs, “Wooden Heart” by Joe Dowell, “I Will Follow Him” by Little Peggy March and “Dominique” by The Singing Nun. Every song has been lovingly re-mastered from the original master tapes for brilliant clarity and full, rich sound.

What SPECIFIC songs have been upgraded?

  • The following tracks are now the “stereo single versions”: “Wooden Heart,” “I Really Love You,” “Lover Please,” “Little Honda” (all now match the hit 45 singles for reverb, EQ and speed)

  • “Little Red Rented Rowboat” is now in STEREO and “Navy Blue” is now (DES) STEREO

  • All others have been RE-EQ’d to bring out the fine details in the original masters
