  • Tommy Roe's Greatest Hits on MCA is a fine 18-track collection that serves up the bubblegum icon's best songs and very little filler. Unlike a large number of Roe collections, this disc contains all original recordings made during his prime. And what a prime it was! Between 1962 and 1969, Roe was responsible for some of the brightest, snappiest bubblegum on the planet. From the funky breakbeats of "Dizzy" to the hushed romanticism of "It's Now Winter's Day" to the swampy groove of "Jam Up and Jelly Tight," there are enough hits here to make you think twice about calling Roe anything less than Hall of Fame material. This collection does a fairly good job of rounding up the hits and great songs, though there are a few omissions that knock it down a notch ("Cinnamon," "Money Is My Pay") as does the inclusion of a mediocre take on "Stagger Lee" from the early '70s. A couple of collections have come along since the release of this to challenge it's worth, but they are each flawed in their own way too. Until the perfect Roe collection comes along, this is a fine purchase. And if you are a fan of bubblegum, pop, or good old rock & roll, you need some Tommy Roe in your collection. ~ Tim Sendra

I have been buying all my CD'S from Fishpond and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them to any-one. They are fast, efficient and hassle free. It is all too easy....

Between 1962 and 1971, Tommy Roe placed eleven songs in the Top 40, including six in the Top 10 (two number 1s!), proving that no matter how many people turned up their noses, the teenybopper bubblegum sound was both popular and persistent.
This superior MCA disc includes all but one of the Top 40 hits. Alongwith the six Top 10 cuts (Sheila, Everybody, Sweet Pea, Hooray for Hazel, Dizzy and the rather raunchy Jam Up and Jelly Tight), it offers a number of excellent lesser known songs (The Folk Singer, It's Now Winter's Day, We Can Make Music.)

Inexplicably, two non-chart cuts are included (Everytime a Bluebird Cries and Dottie, I Like It) at the expense of a very good cover of Susie Darlin', a number 35 in the autumn of 1962.

However, that is a very minor short-coming, considering that all of these songs are originals are brilliantly mastered for clear, dynamic sound.

For pure musical chewing enjoyment, Tommy Roe's Greatest Hits can't be beat
