This was a real shocker to me when I found this online years ago. If you are a big fan of Tommy Roe like me, make sure this CD is your collection. If you like some good rock 'n' roll with some pop mixed in with some songs, you'll love these 2 albums.

"Sheila" (1962... ABC-432 mono ::: ABCS-432 stereo) has to be one of his best albums. Of course featuring his first #1 hit, "Sheila", there are 11 more great songs on the album. In fact, some of them may even be better than Sheila. It all depends on your taste. I personally love every song on here. From rock, pop, all the way to blues and ballads, it's an essential album to have, even if you are a fan of him or not. This CD features a digitally remastered version of the original Stereo mix of the album that sounds amazing.

-------

"Everybody Likes Tommy Roe" (1964... CLP. 1704) is the British edition of Tommy's second U.S. album, "Something For Everybody". Unlike "Something For Everybody" which had a Stereo mix (a few years after the original Mono release), this album was only released in Mono, so it's in true form on the CD. Don't let that bring you down though - these Mono recordings sound amazing (a nice touch of reverb on each track makes it sound more fancy). They've been remastered for this CD.

Anyways, "Everybody Likes Tommy Roe" is a superb album. Unlike the U.S. edition, the U.K. features another big hit he wrote while borrowing John Lennon's Gibson guitar, "Everybody". 6 of the songs on here are from the original U.S. edition of the album, while the rest were exclusive (to my knowledge) to this album. My favorite song on this album has to be either "Sensations" or "You're My Happiness". "Little Tomboy" and "Gonna Take A Chance" rank up with the other two mentioned. But then again the entire album is great and is worth a listen to if you have never heard it. Too bad there wasn't a Stereo release of the U.K. edition like there was with the U.S. release.

So if you are a big fan of Tommy Roe or just discovered his music, you'll love this CD.

Now only if we could see a CD release of his U.K. exclusive album "Ballads and Beat"...
