Very good selection of love songs. Mostly new to me. Most interesting is How Long Will it Take by Doreen Shaeffer. The version by Pat Kelly has for long been a favourite song of mine. Same backing track, but without the strings. For 6 pounds, another bargain. Thank you.
This cd contains a fine selection of rocksteady songs - some well known and others rarer and much sought after. Recommended.
