Original Sound's Golden Oldies series boasts digital remastering, a claim often made by labels attempting to pass off shoddy sound with a few hi-fi buzzwords. Surprisingly, these tracks do sound better than in past recreations, though Original Sound could've done music fans an additional favor by stretching out the CD's to more than a bare half-hour running time. Highlights on the first volume include "Don't Make Me Over" by Dionne Warwick, "16 Candles" by the Crests, and "Dedicated to the One I Love" by the Shirelles.
