Overview

This is a pretty cool combination of two Bobby Vee albums from 1960/1961 that are stronger together than they were separately. With Strings and Things is the softer of the two, though it has its cool rock & roll moments, while Sings Hits of the Rockin' '50's generally focuses better on rock & roll, even if it veers decidedly toward pop. The overall result is to reduce the presence of the true pop dross from the earlier album, while providing a bumper crop of rock & roll ("Do You Want to Dance," "Love's Made a Fool of You," "Diana," "School Day," "Summertime Blues," etc.) and pop
ock ("Little Star," "Come Go with Me," etc.). That, coupled with the excellent sound and informative liner notes (albeit from a U.K. perspective), make this an appealing CD and a must-own item for Vee's fans.
