Review

1990's Golden Years 1956 is a disappointing oldies collection with a promising track listing that, unfortunately, features just one original recording out of its ten tracks. The original -- Gogi Grant's "The Wayward Wind" -- is still a fine slice of Western-inspired vocal pop, and it sounds especially good compared to the weak re-recordings that surround it. Tired, overworked versions of the Four Lads' "Standing on the Corner," the Platters' "My Prayer," and Little Richard's "Tutti Frutti" lack the impact and nostalgia of the original renditions of these songs. This collection really can't be recommended to anyone, especially since far better '50s pop compilations have come out since its release. ~ Heather Phares
