Album Notes
Includes liner notes by Todd Everett.Personnel: Tommy Roe (vocals, guitar).Liner Note Author: Todd Everett.Recording information: London, England (03/23/1962-07/21/1971); Los Angeles, CA (03/23/1962-07/21/1971); Muscle Shoals, AL (03/23/1962-07/21/1971); Nashville, TN (03/23/1962-07/21/1971).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

Greatest Hits by Tommy Roe

Created: 19/04/10
This is just what the title implies, Tommy Roe's greatest hits. All of the songs I was looking for are here along with a few other nice songs: Dizzy, Jam Up and Jelly Tight, Horray for Hazel, Jack and Jill, etc. If you like Tommy Roe then this is for you. I didn't like him much at the time, I was a 1910 Fruitgum Company fan. But the songs have stuck in my head over the years and seem to have held up well. I was surprised after getting the CD to see that Tommy Roe was involved in the writing of most of the hits. I had always assumed someone else churned them out for him. If you never heard of him you will probably not be looking at this, but if you are looking for his best songs then you will be quite happy with this CD. Hope that you enjoy and regain some pleasant memories!

Great memories – All original hit recordings

Created: 02/08/08
Tommy Roe specialized with lighthearted upbeat pop music in the 60s and early 70s. This terrific CD features many of his popular hits as well as lesser-known hits, many of which are rarely heard on the radio these days. Even if you are not old enough to remember these wonderful tunes, chances are you will fall in love with them. All tracks are the original hit recordings and the audio quality is absolutely top-notch! Nice booklet included too!

My kids loves to listen to Shelia, Sweet Pea, Dizzy, Horray for Hazel. My mom has the record and my kids wanted me to find a CD or the record so I decided to find it on ebay. I thank it might wear out sometime because they listen to it so much.

Blast From the Past

Created: 22/03/09
This CD brought back many fond memories of my childhood years. Listening to an AM transistor radio under my pillow at night. Sure went through a lot of batteries. Great stuff, glad it's still around. This is the best Tommy Roe hits disc on the market!
