I just got done transcribing this LP to digital and I am somewhat disappointed to find out all but a paltry few of these songs are remakes. I missed the first clue that most of the songs may have been remakes with reading "Dominion Music Corporation" at the bottom of the back cover. I found out during the cassette era of the 80's and 90's that any sort of compilation with the company name "Dominion" mentioned is to be avoided if the original versions of any given songs is what you're after. Despite this, however, you may find yourself tapping your foot to some of the songs as at least some effort was expended to make the songs similar to the originals. I have never heard some of the original versions of certain songs on this LP or am not familiar enough to make a judgement but I would say only about 2-4 of the 18 tracks present are the original hit versions.
