My husband gave me this collection of great songs a few years back. There are five CDs, and the collection is called Those Wonderful Years. These CDs turn up every now and then on eBay.
The five CDs are titled April Love, Young Love, Hernando's Hideaway, Loving You and My Happiness. There is even a book included with all of the song lyrics. An example of some of the selections: Sixteen Tons by Tennessee Ernie Ford, Tom Dooley by The Kingston Trio, That Old Black Magic by Louis Prima and Keely Smith, Blueberry Hill by Fats Domino, My Prayer by The Platters, I'm Sorry by Brenda Lee, Mack the Knife by Bobby Darin, Venus by Frankie Avalon, Love Letters In The Sand by Pat Boone, My Happiness by Connie Francis, and many more. Each of the five CDs has a selection of 15 songs performed by the original artists.
The audio quality is great, and there are hours of listening enjoyment in this collection. If you are a fan of this type of music, you would definitely want this five CD set.
Update On Mar 20, 2009: My mistake, there are 10 CDs in this collection, not five. The other CDs are titled Come On-a My House, Too Young, Chances Are, Only You and Love Me Tender. This is really quite an extensive collection. There are 15 selections on each of these CDs as well.
